Girl Scout Camp Life Coming Soon!






Girl Scout Camp gives girls amazing opportunities to go on exciting new adventures while feeling the love for the great outdoors.  This summer, Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois is offering three Resident Camp opportunities and 19 Day Camps!   Camp Life helps a girl tackle challenges with a supportive sisterhood cheering her on - building her capacity to step out of her comfort zone with confidence.
