Soaking up memories of a lifetime
From catch-and-release fishing to robotics engineering, Girl Scout summer camp overflows with nonstop adventures. With 179 day and overnight sessions, girls are diving into aquatic activities, science, animal care, drama, wilderness hiking and archery. Whether hitting the trails or the bullseye, campers are always on target, building confidence and leadership skills in a fun and safe environment. Girls give input and help lead programs, further boosting positive outcomes.
Thank you to everyone — volunteers, community partners, donors, staff — who makes camp possible!

Girls can be … whatever they want!
Girls practiced real-life procedures on mannequins at the state-of-the-art research and simulation teaching laboratory — which was funded by 2016 Cool Woman Betty Beyster. Mentored by faculty and graduate nursing students, participants "delivered babies," took blood pressure, dressed wounds using sterile techniques and measured heart rates with stethoscopes. The workshop is just one example of programs introducing Girl Scouts to science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) careers.

STEAM-focused camp opens doors to Girl Scouting
Designed to empower girls to reach for their dreams in a welcoming environment, our Discovery Day Camp sustains and advances girls' interest in science, with an emphasis on women's leadership roles. It's part of our year-round Girl Scout Outreach program, which serves students in City Heights and San Ysidro, among other populations. For more information, contact Lucy Esparza, (619) 619-0788.
