What makes Girl Scout camp unique?
Girl-led, learning by going, cooperative learning – these three processes are the key to Girl Scout camp. Learning by going and cooperative learning are experienced every day at camp thanks to hands-on activities. At Girl Scout camp, girls find a safe haven – a girl-inclusive space where they’re free to be themselves. The safe space offered by Girl Scouts fosters collaboration instead of competition and promotes support among girls. On the first day of camp girls participate in girl planning which puts them in control of their camp experience and makes their activities girl-led. The three processes are guided by caring and skillful camp staff, and these experiences lead to girls developing courage, confidence, and character that transfers into their everyday lives.
