Looking for some fun for your little girl this summer? The Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania has some amazing camps they will love!



 In only a few days my daughter will finished with the third grade and we will be facing a dilemma we've been faced with for a couple of years now...what to do with a nine year old for the summer! I think we found the perfect solution for the summer via the Girl Scouts and their assortment of summer camps. The Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania operate six campgrounds across nine counties and these camps aren't your run of the mill camps either.
 If you're wondering you don't have to be a Girl Scout to attend their camps, the camps are open to all girls ages 5 t o17 and are both day camps and overnight camps. Camp is great I loved it when I was a kid and by the looks of the camps offered by the Girl Scouts my daughter is going to have a great time.

The overnight camps are Camp Laughing Waters in Gilbertsville, PA., Camp Mosey Wood in White Haven, PA., and Camp Wood Haven in Pine Grove, PA. These are traditional camps that offer all of the activities you would expect from a summer camp such as swimming and archery (4th grade and above) hiking, cookouts and arts and crafts to name a few.
While Laughing Waters and Mosey Wood offer your traditional sleeping arrangements Wood Haven has a “Choose Your Own Adventure” program that allows the girls to live in a tent or an Adirondack shelter or (my personal favorite) a tree house with beds and mattresses! I wish I had the opportunity to do this when I was a kid....I mean who wouldn't want to sleep in a tree house?!


The day camps are Camp Mountain House in Allentown, PA., Shelly Ridge in Miquon, PA., and Valley Forge in Valley Forge, PA. These camps offer the same traditional camp activities as their overnight counterparts but what makes these camps a little different is that they have themed weeks where the girls get to pick what interests them the most and focus on that for the week. Some of the themes to choose from are Budding Artists where art is the main focus. Healing Helpers where first aid and helping those in need is the focus. Pottery Princess where the girls get to make and take home pottery they've made. Fresh From the Garden where gardening is the focus. Scene Stealers this is for the drama princesses in your life. And Glamour Girls where the girls get to create their own make-up! These are just a small sample of the many different themes you have to choose from. And the part that I love the best is that there is a bus service meaning all we have to do is get her to the bus stop making life a little simpler for us.
My daughter will be going to the Glamour Girls week and is looking forward to making her own make-up but it wasn't an easy choice so many of the camps looked interesting and she really had to think about her choice but she's very happy with getting the chance to learn how to make her own make-up. From 8:30 am to 3:30 pm for a week in August I don't have to worry about what my daughter will be doing with her time, it will be filled with activities and lessons that she'll carry with her for the rest of her life. I look back fondly at the time I spent in camp when I was her age and I hope she gets all she can out of this I'm a little jealous I'm too old to go myself!

These camps sound like so much fun! If you are looking for activities for your little girl this summer be sure to check out these great girl scout camps, here is some more great information the 2014 Camp Guide  is a great resource!

  7. I'm not a camp person because the outdoors at night and me do not get along. However, my kids seem to enjoy camping just fine. They both did a little scout camping as kids!
