CAMP DATES: July 21-23, 2020
This Summer, CAMP is Where You Make It!
Camping is a Girl Scout tradition and we are excited to offer a Virtual Camp experience for our Lakeville Girl Scout community! This virtual camping experience will give girls and families a chance to connect with each other and the camp Program Aides through a common love for camp and the outdoors. This event aims to bring you the magic and traditions of camp from home.
We encourage you to share your virtual camp experience on social media with the hashtag #LakevilleGSCamp2020. Whether you pitch a tent in your yard, craft s'mores in the microwave, construct a dreamy blanket fort, or sing a song with your troop over video chat, your at home camping creations will inspire other girls to try it out themselves!
Girls can get together to complete activities if social distancing rules can be followed. This might be the time to invite a neighbor who hasn’t tried camping to try something new and have some fun together!
