Camping is a great way for girls to explore leadership skills and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Whether they go for a week or longer, Girl Scout camp gives girls an opportunity to grow, explore and have fun under the guidance of caring, trained adults. For more information email or call (617) 350-8335. Every girl deserves a chance to camp.
Hours of Operation: 9am – 4pm, extended care available 7:30am – 9am ($10) and 4pm – 6pm ($15)
The day starts with a flag ceremony each and every morning! Each unit takes turns either with an opening or closing. Sing the announcement song, hear what fun activities are happening and off to your units to start planning your week. You could attend sports and games first, or to arts and crafts, swimming, hiking, learn new songs, start planning your late night meal, or just start making new friends.
