Summertime provides an opportunity to experience nature and have fun in the great outdoors. Girl Scout camping is a national tradition that began in 1912 when the Girls Scouts were founded. Ever since and, in fact, for more than a century, young scouts have become proficient campers and participated in outdoors activities.
