What is “girl-led”? Girl-led is what sets Girl Scout programming apart. The girl-led philosophy is that girls can and should choose their own adventures and experiences. Doing so allows girls to build confidence, practice decision-making skills, and grow into the bold leaders they are destined to be. At camp, this means that girls get to choose how they want to spend their time. Each evening, they decide as individuals what they want to do the next day. Girl Scout Camp is so much more than a day care or something to do for a week – it’s a life-changing experience for your girl.
During week-long sessions, girls spend time swimming, boating, practicing target sports, rock climbing, doing arts and crafts, singing, laughing, and so much more. Girls choose what their week looks like.
If your girl wants to try overnight camp, but she isn’t ready for a whole week away from home, Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan offers “Mini Camps” – a three day session where she can see what camp is all about. During mini sessions, girls get to do everything they would do during a full session, but in a few days instead of a whole week.
Some of the most popular camp sessions are horse sessions. Also available in mini or week-long sessions, horse camps give girls the option to spend quality time riding and caring for horses.
This year, camp will look a little different, with masks, social distancing, and a thorough pre-camp health screening. In addition, this summer will have countless smiles, s’mores, and friendships made! The Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan Summer Camps are staying up to date with Center for Disease Control (CDC), American Camping Association (ACA), and local and state health departments guidelines to advise us on the very best protocols for handling COVID-19 at camp. This past year has reaffirmed the Girl Scouts strong belief in the power of summer camp and in the out-of-doors, and they will take the necessary time to gather the most up-to-date information to help us mold their COVID-19 policy. They will be in touch with our camper families as the summer moves closer with a comprehensive summer camp plan. They can’t wait to see you!
