2012 Troop Cookie Manager Guide

Girls today are bombarded with electronic games, the internet and television. They suffer from in- creased obesity rates and limited interpersonal skills. Outdoor experiences at Girl Scout camp help girls build condence, self-esteem and self-control, and improve interpersonal skills and environmental awareness. Girl Scout summer camp is a magical place where learning and growth go hand in hand with fun and friendship. Girls face challenges and celebrate successes when they accomplish something they never dreamed possible. Camp allows girls to set aside technology and connect with each other, developing friendships, life skills and memories that last a lifetime. Unfortunately, not all girls can afford to attend summer camp. Our Girl Scout council covers much of the operating costs, but fees to a girl’s family still average $300 a week. Your support of a Campership can make all the difference to a girl this summer. $125 can send a girl to a mini-camp session $300 can support a full Campership $550 covers the council’s cost to provide a week of camp for a girl $1,000 gifts qualify for membership in our Juliette Low Society Gifts of any amount are appreciated by our girls The possibilities that lie ahead … We believe that all girls deserve an opportunity to experience the magic of camp. For many girls, Girl Scout camp is a once in a lifetime experience. Help us say “yes” to every camper who applies for a Campership. Every gift makes a difference. Precious camp memories continue through lifelong friendships and the glow in the eyes of my daughters and granddaughters. www.girlscoutshs.org I 800.624.4185 -GS camp alumna See you at the next camp re, Angela Woods Myra Collins CEO Dir. of Outdoor Leadership Experience
