The countdown to the opening of registration for Girl Scout camp is underway! It starts Jan. 13, 2015 at 9 a.m. on the Girl Scouts of Colorado website.
On Thursday, Jan. 8, 2015, Kim Petau, camp director for Sky High Ranch, and Girl Scout Anne Martens joined FOX21 in Colorado Springs to talk about registration for Girl Scout camp.
Here are a few “behind the scenes” photos:
Ask yourself, “Where will I…”
stand atop a mountain and take in the forever view?
feel my heartbeat in my ears as I zip down the zipline?
and, most importantly, where will I make friendships that will last a lifetime?
For summer 2015, Girl Scouts of Colorado is excited to announce girls will be able to have those experiences — and hundreds more—at Sky High Ranch! Resident camp is returning to this beautiful rustic camp near Manitou Lake and Woodland Park for the first time since 2012. For many Girl Scouts, attending resident camp at Sky High Ranch is a family tradition. Their mothers, grandmothers, and even great-grandmothers, in some cases, have fond memories of their summers at Sky High Ranch.
Girl Scouts of Colorado will also offer resident camp at perennial favorite Tomahawk Ranch near Bailey, southwest of Denver. Some of the activities at our resident camps include archery, backpacking, photography, and rock climbing. Our standard resident camp runs 6-days. We also offer 2-week camps , as well as mini 3-day camps. The summer camp schedule is live on the Girl Scouts of Colorado website (girlscoutsofcolorado.org) so you can begin to review the 2015 offerings. Girl Scouts of Colorado will continue to offer day camping adventures throughout the state.
Girl Scout summer camp programs are open to all girls throughout Colorado who are over the age of 6. Registration begins Jan. 13 at 9 a.m. on the Girl Scouts of Colorado website at girlscoutsofcolorado.org. Register early. Some sessions fill in just a few hours.
Girl Scout camp is a safe place for your girl to explore her world, make forever friends, and learn to be a leader. Girls learn differently than boys and everything at Girl Scout camp is designed to meet girls where they are. No labels. No competition. No boys. There’s just a whole lot of “you go, girl!”
Girl Scouts has been helping girls shine for more than 100 years. Girl Scouts of Colorado is proud to serve 25,000 girls across the state with the help and support of 10,000 adult volunteers!
