GLEN CARBON – Camping…It’s a Girl Scout tradition! Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois is excited to offer Resident Camp this summer, but registration deadlines are quickly approaching. Girl Scout Camp gives girls the opportunity to try new adventures, build skills, make new friends, and enjoy the great outdoors. Not a Girl Scout? No problem! Girls can join Girl Scouts now through an extended membership so they can enjoy camping this summer and transition right into their troop experience in the fall. It’s the perfect time to join!

Financial assistance is available for those who qualify. For more information about joining Girl Scouts or signing up for camp, or for full descriptions of any of our camps, visit our website at www.gsofsi.org. Please contact customercare@gsofsi.org and note the camp you’re interested in attending to learn more.
