Day and Evening& Camps Have Fun at Summer Day and Evening Camp! In just a few months your daughter will be ready to attend one of the Summer Day and Evening Camps and the time to choose that camp is now! Year round thousands of Girl Scouts eagerly anticipate these camps. Why go to camp? There are a variety of fun activities from playing games, singing, swimming to high adventure. The themes and settings for camp are so different that each girl will easily find one that fits her own unique personality; the hardest part is choosing which camp to attend! This brochure is full of camps, not just for younger girls, but for teens as well. If you are looking for Sleep Away Camp opportunities please make sure you turn your attention to the Sleep Away Camp section of this brochure. Although both types of camp are Girl Scout traditions, take time to read each section carefully, as there is a different registration process and deadline for each. Below are some steps to guide you on your camping journey‌
