What's Working: Girl Scout Camp

MOBILE COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) - Summer is right around the corner, and the Girl Scouts of South Alabama are inviting all girls to summer camp! The camp is called Scoutshire Woods and it's located in Citronelle.  There is another Girl Scout camp located on Lake Martin.

News 5 was there for a preview of camp, and the staff showed us all of the fun activities the girls could take part in.  There are plenty of water activities like swimming and kayaking, zip lining, horse-back riding, archery, arts and crafts, and much more.

Counselor Kristen Robinson says she came to camp as a young girl. She loved trying new things as a girl and says she enjoys seeing the campers trying something new.

"My favorite part of the camp is being on the water, teaching girls to do new things, teaching them to swim, and not to be afraid of the water," Robinson said.

Camp Director,  Cheryl Miller, tells News 5 that camp is a time for the girls to learn and grow and that many become more independent.

"We want to give them the opportunity in an all-girl and girl-led environment to explore all kinds of things, and reach their full potential. To find out what they like and what they might want to do or be when they grow up," Miller said.
