Camp Life Is the Best Life
Summer camp 2021 is on! Now more than ever, it is a crucial part of
Girl Scouting. Being outdoors and away from technology will allow
campers to continue building connections and social skills, discover
themselves while exploring nature, and challenge themselves in new
ways. It’s an opportunity to be bold, be brave, and unlock endless potential.
This summer is going to be a little different, like most things this
past year. However, the magic of summer camp will remain – friends,
activities, counselors, and kayaking. Your support ensures Camp
Welaka will be a safe inspiring space for girls to experience
outdoor adventure this summer.
Girl Scouts has a long tradition of getting girls into nature.
Whether they are learning basic survival skills, going on a hike or
cooking over a campfire, every girl deserves the chance to explore the
Why is summer camp important?
· Camp builds problem-solvers! Girls with more
frequent outdoor experiences are more likely to seek challenges and
are better at solving problems—qualities that will help them embark on
a lifetime of leadership, both academically and personally in the future.
· Camp exposes girls to new experiences! Girl Scout
camp gives them a chance to build on their skills or try new outdoor
activities. Stimulating activities like camp over the summer months
also helps prevent summer learning loss.
· Camp builds courage and confidence! Research shows
spending time in nature improves concentration and creative reasoning.
Outdoor experiences also help promote healthy social development and
increase her self-esteem.
Whether a girl’s favorite camp memory is roasting marshmallows,
canoeing or nature hikes under the moonlight, she is better because of
it. Please consider donating to Girl Scouts of Southeast
Florida today to make Summer Camp her greatest memory of 2021.
You can make a difference today by giving the most wonderful gift of
having fun with friends again while safely hiking, canoeing, learning
outdoor skills, and so much more. Thank you for your continued support
and for always being our partner in offering girls opportunities to
thrive and grow. It means more than you know.
