Sugar Hollow Day Camp (with Optional Overnight) Session II
Happy 100th Birthday, Girl Scouts!
Celebrate the vision and legacy of Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low at camp this summer. Join us as we explore our history through traditional Girl Scout songs, camping recipes, crafts and games. Our centennial celebration will conclude with the biggest party you’ve ever attended — enjoy birthday cake and SWAPs with more than 100 of your closest Girl Scout sisters. Sugar Hollow traditions will continue: we will wade in the creek, enjoy nature, tie-dye, hike, cook over a campfire, and learn outdoor skills as we make new friends at camp.
Girls are grouped according to their January 2012 Girl Scout level and will earn the new Legacy Badge “Girl Scout Way,” as well as a unique patch commemorating the 100th birthday of Girl Scouting and a special patch from the GSVSC summer camp progression program. Unit capacity varies depending upon level; some units DO reach capacity before registration closes.
