Press release submitted by Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois|
(Bettendorf, Iowa) –Thinking about summer already? What will the kids do all summer long?! What about Girl Scout Camp?
Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois announces 2013 summer resident camp registration beginning March 1.
Girls entering grades 1 through 12can choose a camp experience that fits their interests at either Camp Conestoga near New Liberty, Iowa, or Camp Little Cloud near Epworth, Iowa. In addition to our summer camp offerings, Girl Scouts provides summer outdoor activities including day camps, overnights and day-long events planned throughout the council.
Girls will discover their interests in a safe, natural setting, connect to others, and take action to make the world a better place through girl-led experiences that involve cooperative learning and learning by doing with the Girl Scout outdoor program. While girls learn new physical skills like swimming or horseback riding, they also learn life skills such as teamwork, leadership and self-reliance.
Camping is a great way for girls to explore leadership, build life skills and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Whether they go for a day, a week, or longer, Girl Scout camp gives girls an opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun under the guidance of caring, trained adults.
Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois is dedicated to giving every girl the opportunity to attend summer camp and provides grant opportunities. Each camp has trained health professionals to help assist with any dietary restrictions, physical or mental disabilities, to ensure all girls have a positive experience at Girl Scout camp.

Girls Scouts builds girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.
