GREENSBORO – Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont (GSCP2P) is gearing up for summer, and registration for 2023 summer camp programming is open.

With a variety of overnight camp, day camp and horse camp options, it’s a great opportunity for girls to embark on a summer of adventure.

Summer camp sessions are open to girls in grades 1-12, and it is not required to be a Girl Scout. Programs will be running at camp properties in Lenoir (Camp Ginger Cascades) and SophiaC (Keyauwee Program Center) and range from weeklong to half-week sessions. The full 2023 camp book and registration information can be found at https://www.girlscoutsp2p.org/en/camp/summer-camp-opportunities.html.

Girls who register by Feb. 28 will receive a $50 early bird discount on any full week overnight camp or CIT I leadership programs. Additional financial assistance is also available to families who want to send their girl to camp, but have financial limitations.

“Each of the camp properties and programs provide unique experiences for our campers,” said CEO of GSCP2P, Jennifer Wilcox. “Along with classic camp activities like swimming, boating and s’mores around the campfire, having the chance to go to camp gives girls the courage to try new things, confidence in being who she is and instills a love for being outside.”
