Summer is a bit of a down time for Girl Scout troops, but we are working to make sure opportunities for Girl Scout fun are available year round. As many of you know, we run two resident camps during the summer, for which we spend a lot of time working to make certain the girls who attend have a great time. Of course, not everyone can make resident camp, though.
This summer our staff membership, volunteer and program team (MVP) group is working to have other activities for the girls. Some are programs we have had each year, like the opportunity to host or attend America's Junior Miss (now Distinguished Young Women) events in Mobile. Those programs are all planned and ready for girls to have a great time getting to know accomplished young women. A Mobile area service unit offers a day camp at the Mobile Botanical Gardens. In the northern part of the council, we will offer a Science Day in Troy, Family Fishing and Fun Day at Camp Humming Hills in Elba and a Christmas in July activity in Montgomery, just to name a few. Keep an eye on the programs and events tab on the council website for all the fun we have planned to make your summer a great one! And look for new program events for fall coming soon!
