Spend 5 days surrounded by the Wonderful World of Art with your Girl Scout sisters! This camp will be filled with plenty of fun and creative activities centered around art, both indoors and outdoors! Girls will learn how to use a camera, develop their own film and portraits, and even take their very own camera home to keep! Girls will take a trip downtown to the Lynchburg Dance Theater to spend a day exploring film and dance! Plenty of other artistic media will be available for us to explore but we cannot spoil all of the surprises! Come join us this summer for a wonderful camp experience! See you there!
