Even though camp season officially kicked off last week at Camp Piperwood, the spirit has finally spread to the rest of the council. Our resident camps, Camp Seven Hills and Camp Timbercrest, each began this week with girls participating in a number of programs, including Dumbledore’s Army, Climbing Masters, Pony Pals, and more!

To stay up to date with the action, make sure you follow our Camp Timbercrest and Camp Seven Hills blogs. They’re updated daily by our onsite camp staff, bringing you recaps and more!

For those visual people, we have albums chronicling each session as well. Check out GSWNY’s Flickr account for all the great photos! Another council staff member travels to all the camps, and you can check out her photos on our Facebook page! She posts albums from the sessions she attends. Our Page also features a drop off album for parents and guardians to share their photos of leaving their girls!

We have so many ways for you to keep up with camp, but we also have a challenge. Just because you aren’t at camp doesn’t mean you can’t get outdoors. Try working toward your Outdoor Guru Challenge badge this summer!

It’s not too late to sign up for Girl Scout summer camp!

While it’s technically late spring, we can all agree that school letting out and the beautiful weather signifies that summer is FINALLY here! The only thing more exciting than summer vacation is figuring out how you’re going to spend your time and we have good news:

CAMP IS WAITING FOR YOUR GIRL!

Just because summer is here doesn’t mean it’s too late to sign up your girl! We still have options for all grade levels at our camps to make sure she has the best summer ever.

Camp and the outdoors are part of our Girl Scout DNA. We believe in addition to fun, camping teaches your girl important leadership skills and helps her on her path to become a G.I.R.L. (go-getter, innovator, risk-taker, and leader). Even better, we have a program planned for just about anyone.

At Camp Piperwood, your girl can experience the best of day camp through programs like The Great Outdoors, Science Wonders, Citizen Science, Cables and Carabiners, and more!

If resident camp is what you’re looking for, our summer is filled at Camp Seven Hills and Camp Timbercrest with horseback riding, science-based camps, Harry Potter, and much more!

Spaces are filling up quickly so make sure to register your girl for camp today! Day camp starts July 2 and resident camps starts July 8, with all sessions ending August 10.
