Our Mission

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

Equestrian Camp

This year brings an exciting change to the Gateway Council Summer Equestrian Program. To provide an outstanding experience Gateway Council has partnered with the West Central Florida Girl Scout Council to deliver a Resident Equestrian Program for Summer 2016. This program will be held at Camp Wildwood in Wildwood, Florida which is near the Villages, FL. 

Camp Wildwood offers a great variety of programs for Girl Scouts entering grades 2-12, including Wrangler-in-Training programs for high school students. Registration begins on March 21st. More information about the Camp Wildwood equestrian camps can be found here.

Please note that Gateway Council Resident Camp Credits from cookie sales cannot be applied towards programs in another Council.
