Registration Open for Summer Camp

Summer camp is known for being a place to have fun outdoors, make new friends and create lifelong memories. But what children don’t realize is that summer camp provides so much more. They have five key opportunities at summer camp: encounter new challenges, experience success, develop leadership skills, improve self-esteem and build life skills. 

“Children who attend camp have shown improvements in leadership, peer relations and self-esteem,” said Trish Coghlan, chief executive office for the Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama. “Learning involves acquiring behaviors, skills, values and understandings that are not always academic in nature. They participate in activities that offer intentional opportunities to practice decision making and teamwork.”

“Girl Scout camps offer experiences for everyone, regardless if they are Girl Scouts or not,” said Coghlan. “Both camps even offer day camp programs to boys! Day camps are a great alternative to daycare.”
