The Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York (GSNENY) offers a magical camp experience for girls. At camp girls have the opportunity to meet old and new friends, gain confidence in their skills, and feel good about who they are while learning new things! Girl Scout camp offer girls the chance to participate in challenging, interesting, adventurous programs and create memories that will last a lifetime.
A girl who attended camp last year wrote: “Dear Mom, Today I climbed a mountain, Tomorrow I’m scuba diving and everyday I’m making new friends!”
GSNENY’s summer programs allow girls to choose a day or overnight camp experience. At camp girls can experience traditional activities such as spending a night sleeping under the stars, cooking on a fire or learning how to canoe. But girls will also have the chance to experience dance, horseback riding, graphic cartooning, fine arts, climbing the High Peaks of the Adirondacks, and much more.
Camps and programs are managed by staff members who are dedicated to the education of girls, and bring a wealth of experience and excitement about what they do. The variety of programs available has been designed to appeal to girls in K-12th grade. Some examples are:
Water lovers can take SCUBA diving lessons for fun and the more serious diver can work towards certification. In this program, girls will work with professional SCUBA instructor, Archie Jones from A & M SCUBA.
For girls who love horses! Perhaps they have some horse riding skills. Horse Haven is the perfect program. Girls will go to a nearby stable and learn about horses by trained professionals and experience the countryside on horseback.
For the Geocaching Gurus, girls will learn how to use a GPS and navigate through the woods to find hidden treasures. Not only will girls have the opportunity to find the caches, but create their own geocache that will be available for other groups to find.
Girls looking for an untraditional camp experience can attend our Comic Camp – in this program girls will have the opportunity to work with professional Graphic Novel Cartoonist, Barbara Slate and develop their own comic story line.
Our commitment is to have every girl’s life enriched by attending a summer program.
