Summer Sessions for Seniors & Ambassadors

Watch her inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)TM flourish this summer at Camp Scherman. 

At camp girls find the courage within themselves to make new friends, embrace the unfamiliar by trying new things, and discover adventure in the outdoors with a new found fearless enthusiasm!  As they make choices and take on challenges, girls learn to collaborate with others, become self-reliant, and develop their lifelong leadership skills. Whether she's testing her courage on the Low Ropes Course, taking aim in archery, canoeing on Promise Lake, or singing songs under the stars she'll learn how to #CampLikeAGirlScout.
