Send a Girl to Camp
CAN YOU IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT GIRL SCOUT CAMP?
WE CAN'T EITHER.
Girl Scout Alicia loves working on community service projects and always leads her troop in cookie sales. She’s dedicated to her troop, she’ll do anything you ask her to do to help, and is flourishing through the Girl Scout program.
Alicia’s mom is a single, working mom. In the spring, her mother was evicted from their home. They are now living with Alicia’s grandmother. A once-in-a-lifetime trip to summer camp couldn’t have come at a better time - providing Alicia a safe, supportive environment during a period of intense transition and uncertainty.
You would be hard-pressed to find a Girl Scout more deserving of a campership.
As a rising sixth grader, Alicia attended Around the World Week at Camp Mary Atkinson. In addition to traditional camp activities like nature hikes, archery, and swimming, Camp Mary Atkinson features a 50-foot alpine climbing tower and a man-made lake that supports canoeing, kayaking, and - the increasingly popular - paddle boarding!
Alicia did all this and more!
“When I picked her up, she was all smiles. She shared that she met a lot of new people and formed a deep bond with one girl in particular.”
Imagine being in Alicia and her mom’s shoes when the Summer Fun Guide arrived last year; they both knew that even with her Cookie Dough, camp wasn’t an option. BUT, imagine their excitement when they learned she received a campership! Alicia was able to attend Around the World Week at Camp Mary Atkinson thanks to our generous donors.
That excitement is contagious, and we want to spread it!
While we work to keep camp affordable, there are girls whose financial situation is such that camp is not a possibility. Each year we provide nearly $70,000 in financial assistance for Girl Scouts to have a camp experience, to try new things, to make lifelong friends, and to return home all smiles.
You can help make summer camp possible for a deserving Girl Scout like Alicia with your gift to our Campership Fund. To spread the excitement, Use the online donation form below or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
