Did you ever sleep outside on a hot summer night and looking up realize that you really can’t count all those stars? Remember that? That first time that you really saw all those stars and it made you feel part of something big, so vast that you couldn’t define it. But lying there, listening to the crickets, watching the stars, you thought and thought about how it might be defined until you fell asleep.
Camping is one of the most effective ways Girl Scouting has of helping girls feel that they are part of something big – and helping them develop the skills they need to participate in our great, wide world.
Camperships provide this memorable and life-changing experience for girls who may not otherwise be able to attend day or overnight camp.
Support at any level will help to give girls this valuable opportunity, but consider the impact of the following levels:
- A week of Resident Camp for 4 girls $1,000
- A week of Troop Camping for 8 girls $500
- A week of Resident Camp for 1 girl $250
- A week of Day Camp for 2 girls $100
