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. The cost for this event is campers - $65, counselors - $100
