Did you know 80% of girls who have been to Girl Scout Camp said it was their #1 most memorable outdoor activity in Girl Scouts? It's true!

At Girl Scout Camp, girls develop teamwork and leadership skills as they conquer challenge courses—they express creativity as they perform dramas, learn new songs and make craft projects. Girls develop problem-solving skills and self-confidence as they try new activities like sailing, lashing and firebuilding, even archery—all exciting opportunities at Girl Scout Camp!

Sadly, not all families are able to afford to the cost of sending their girls to camp. That’s where your donation to GSSNE’s Campership Fund makes a world of difference.

The Campership Fund provides financial aid to girls who would otherwise not be able to attend Girl Scout Camp. But with your support, these girls can experience the life-changing impact of attending one of our awesome Day Camps or even Overnight Camp as they build courage, confidence, and character. Last year GSSNE was able to distribute $43,339 to girls in our community and we are already receiving requests for financial assistance for 2020.

Please help make this summer a memorable one for a local girl! Click here to make a secure donation online or contact Jill at jmartens@gssne.org to learn more. All gifts, no matter the size, will make a difference in the life of a girl!

It’s never too early to start thinking about summer camp!
