Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri Resident Camp

At Girl Scout Camp, girls follow their own convictions, take the lead in their own stories, and explore all the extraordinary things they are capable of. With programs in the outdoors ranging from equestrian and robotics and everything in between, girls have the space and support they need to grow and advance important competencies, including a sense of self. When girls are allowed time to focus on themselves and foster organic relationships with peers and adult role models, it is easier for girls to move out of their comfort zone and develop leadership abilities they will lean on for the rest of their lives! Not a Girl Scout? Not a problem! All girls are welcome at our summer camp programs.
