2012 Camp Country Center Summer Camp Guide
This year we've separated our Camp Guide by region.
SUMMER CAMP For ALL girls in grades 1-12 Girl Scouting is entering its 100th year in 2012, which has been designated “Year of the Girl.” We strive to evolve our programming as our culture evolves to meet today’s girl’s needs. Girls today want experiences that give them the opportunity to try something new, feel confident and face their fears. Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay (GSCB) offers summer camp programs that present these opportunities to our campers. GSCB camps have a solid commitment to understanding and applying strategies that work best with girls. Whether paid or volunteer, we specifically hire those with experience in Girl Scouting so they have a passion for working with girls. Programs are designed to give girls the opportunity to learn through fun, imaginative and exciting activities. These activities help develop a strong sense of self, critical thinking skills, working in cooperation with others, developing relationships and becoming problem solvers. You may see that many of our camps’ prices are far lower than our competitors. We do this because we want ALL girls to experience our camps. We also offer scholarships and discounts to campers to ensure that all families who need the support can receive it. Each program provides both emotional- and skill-based progression. We want every girl to walk away from camp wanting more—forever changed, with lifelong friends she will never forget. Join us as we celebrate the centennial summer of the Girl Scout movement and you will see why there is … More than you think! 2012 Summer Camp Directors 2 Cathy Stafford Camp and Outdoor Program Manager Celebrating 100 years of Girl Scouting · 1912-2012 Four separate camps–Four exciting experiences!
