ALL Girls and Families invited to Summer Camp Open Houses!
April 7, 2014
Girl Scouts of Connecticut is hosting fun open house events at all of its summer camps on Sunday, May 4 from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. The camps will be open for the public and families to attend and discover the exciting summer camp programs designed for all girls entering grades 1-12. The open houses will allow families to tour the facilities, meet with camp directors and staff members, and learn about camp life.
Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s summer camps are for all girls – girls don’t have to be a Girl Scout to camp with us! All of our camps are accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA), which shows a solid foundation of health, safety, and program quality at our camps. Programs range from traditional camp activities like archery, boating, swimming, and horseback riding at select camps, to our specialized activities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and our signature anti-bullying program, Girlz R.U.L.E.®.
Several studies, including one by the ACA, suggest that a stay at summer camp typically benefits children by helping them become more confident and experience increased self-esteem; develop social skills; become more independent, showing leadership qualities; and become more adventurous in trying new things.
Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s camps include:
Candlewood, New Fairfield
Clatter Valley, New Milford (July 13, 2014; 4-6 p.m.)
Timber Trails, Tolland, MA
