At camp, our Girl Scouts experience activities such as horseback riding, swimming, activities, hiking, and so much more thana just s'mores!
Resident camp is an overnight camping experience where ALL GIRLS can explore the out-of-doors with trained camp counselors. Resident camp sessions typically last about one week and are held in June and July each year at Girl Scouts Camp Kateri.
Stay tuned for information on 2016 camp dates!
Girl Scouts SMILE Camp has been putting smiles on the faces of First Coast children with disabilities for over 35 years! Girl Scout Seniors (grades 9-10) and Ambassadors (grades 11-12) may submit an application and references in the spring to be considered for the position of SMILE Camp Counselor. Once accepted, girls receive hands-on, intensive training to plan and lead a one-week summer day camp for elementary-school age campers (5-11 years old) living with cerebral palsy, TMH, EMH (trainable mental handicaps and educable mental handicaps), hearing and/or visual impairments. Counselors provide physical assistance, gentle encouragement and one-on-one attention to the campers. Campers attend the week for a minimal fee, which includes lunch, snacks, and transportation to and from camp.
Stay tuned for dates for 2016!
