Carroll area girls invited to Girl Scout Camp

-A A +A

As the weather warms, this is the perfect time to think about the  tradition of summer camp. From swimming and hiking, to singing songs around a camp fire and newer challenges like a high ropes course, camp is the place to make memories that last a lifetime.

Girls in first through 12th grades from the Carroll County area have a great way to build these kinds of memories this summer. Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana will be holding summer camps at two locations on multiple dates from June through July.

Girl Scout residential summer camps will be held at Camp Pennyroyal, located near Owensboro, and at the Bear Creek Aquatic Camp, near Paducah. Activities vary based on the camp location and length of program. Programs can run from four or six days, all the way up to 12 days for older girls.

All Girl Scout camps are accredited by the American Camp Association. Camps are staffed by experienced staff certified in camping and safety procedures. Bus transportation is available for those who need it, or who just want the fun of a road trip to sing songs and make new friends. Camp fees range from $95 to $545 depending on the length and type of program selected. Financial assistance is available to make sure costs do not pose a barrier to any girl’s chance to go to camp or be a Girl Scout.

On-line registration can be done at gskentuckiana.org. Camp space often fills quickly, so early registration is advised. Registrations are processed in the order they are received. Printed camp brochures can be requested by calling (888) 771-5170. Details about specific dates and activities can be found at gskentuckiana.org.
