Camp Life is the Best Life
She doesn't have to already be a Girl Scout to join the adventure.
Turn up the fun at Girl Scout camp this summer! Come meet us and tour Camp Ledgewood at the free open house on April 10. Then, decide how your girl will spend her summer. Maybe she'll zip line over a ravine, maybe she'll make a pin in archery, or maybe she'll find a friend and some paddles to go exploring in a flat water canoe. Whatever she chooses, fun is sure to follow!
