March 22nd, 2018 · Leave a Comment

Through outdoor experiences like canoeing, kayaking and sailing, girls can get out of their comfort zones to take healthy risks, try new things and create their own one-of-a-kind experience.

Girl Scouts of Gateway Council (GSGC) proudly announces 2018 summer camps open to girls of Northeast Florida.

This year, GSGC is offering summer camp experiences at two different locations. Camp Kateri near Gainesville and North Fork in Middleburg are the select sites for Girl Scout activities this summer and will offer a variety of session themes. Campers can earn badges including Archery, Gardener, Adventurer, STEM and Survival. Every girl will have the opportunity to make her summer story the most memorable yet.

Camp Kateri will offer multiple resident camps throughout the months of June, July and August. Resident camps are overnight camps for girls of varying ages to practice independence, test their ideas and try new things. At Camp Kateri, campers can participate in activities such as swimming, kayaking, outdoor skills, arts and crafts, canoeing and archery.

At Girl Scout summer camp, every girl has the opportunity to discover the world around her. When girls get outdoors with activities like hiking, they feel more connected and become better stewards of the environment.

The North Fork Leadership Center will host day camps where campers can enjoy the wonders of nature with canoeing and archery. Day campers may also choose the STEM emphasis camp to combine nature with the sciences such as robotics, photography, astronomy and more.

Beyond day camps at North Fork, the North Fork campsite offers girls the option of a two-to three-night stay to test out a traditional camp experience. Girls choosing to try a sampler overnight camp will sleep in a cabin, cook over fire at night and enjoy customary camp activities including swimming, boating, shooting and making s’mores.

Girls that have completed high school are able to earn their Counselor in Training designation. With the approval from a Girl Scout camp director, Counselors in Training have the opportunity to mentor and work with younger girls in a camp/outdoor setting.
