Girl Scouts of Gateway Council announces summer camps

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (March 28, 2019) – Girl Scouts of Gateway Council (GSGC) proudly announces 2019 Girl Scout Summer Camps. The camps are open to all girls in Northeast and North Central Florida. Campers do not have to be a Girl Scout member to enroll.

“Girl Scout camp is a place where girls explore nature, take on new challenges, master new skills, and develop a stronger sense of self – all in a safe, all-girl environment,” said Gateway Council CEO Mary Anne Jacobs. “Our girls can get out of their comfort zones to take healthy risks, try new things and create their own one-of-a-kind experience.”

Girls can sign up for summer camping events at Camp Kateri and North Fork Leadership Center. Both locations are offering a variety of camp activities and experiences.

Camp sessions begin on June 9. Camp Kateri offers multiple resident camps that features a wide array of outdoor experiences, including canoeing, outdoors skills, kayaking, hiking, campfires and more.

North Fork Leadership Center in Middleburg will be the site for day camp with exciting outdoor activities. Day campers may also choose the STEM emphasis session, combining nature with the sciences. Transportation is available for day camp sessions.

The Counselor in Training option is available for high school girls looking to mentor younger girls in a camp/outdoor setting this summer.

We’re Girl Scouts of the USA

We’re 2.6 million strong—1.8 million girls and 800,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.
