[June 05, 2014]  SPRINGFIELD - There is still time to register for summer camp experiences offered through Girl Scouts of Central Illinois. All girls—not just registered Girl Scouts--are welcome to attend Girl Scout summer camp. Campers may choose from a variety of sessions centered on adventures like archery, swimming, hiking, horseback riding, teams courses, a climbing wall, traveling, the arts, and much more. Camp options include day camp, mini resident camp and resident camp. Financial assistance is available for any girl who wishes to attend Girl Scout summer camp but is unsure her family can afford it.

According to More Than S’mores, a new camp-oriented study from the Girl Scout Research Institute, girls who regularly spend time outdoors eclipse their peers who spend less time outdoors in environmental stewardship, and they more readily seek challenges and are better problem solvers—all essential traits to twenty-first century leadership. Girl Scouts are also twice as likely as non-Girl Scouts to say they take action to protect the environment (51 percent versus 23 percent) and that they’ve had a personal experience in nature that has made them appreciate it more (49 percent versus 29 percent), according to the report.
