An Experience to Remember: Camp
What does camp do for girls?
Camp programs encourage girls to develop independence, self-reliance, outdoor living skills, problem solving, and community living skills. In an outdoor environment, under the supervision of supportive adults, girls take responsibility for their daily tasks, ranging from keeping a clean living area to preparing dinner in the outdoors. Camp programs build girls' self-confidence and teach them to overcome challenges.
Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas offers day-only, one-night, weekend, and resident camp programs so that girls use progression to build their comfort with camping.
Where do we camp?
Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas has two beautiful camps, Camp Bayview near Los Fresnos, and Camp Green Hill near Mathis. As girls develop their camping skills, they can explore other camp locations such as state parks, independent camp sites, national parks, and other approved locations.
