Kansas Girl Scouts invite area girls to experience Camp Flying T

• Special to the Leader & Times
Garden City — Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland camps provide the opportunity for girls to develop a sense of responsibility, become more independent and, most importantly, have fun. Camps offer girls the opportunity to discover, connect and take action through camping with a focus on building courage, confidence and character while creating memories and making s’mores (of course).
Why choose camp for your girl this summer?  Girl Scout Volunteer and Camp Director, Janet Tobin, shares that “when a girl arrives at camp, magic happens. Her camp experience begins with meeting new people. They begin to work together to reach a goal whether it be making a meal or playing a game – they all come as one, but along the way they become a team. They take this with them as they leave and the take the skills they learn to live life and succeed.”
Join Janet and other area Girl Scouts at Camp Flying T, near Sylvia, for a Fun in the Sun Camp, May 29-June 2, 2013 or the Dog Days of Summer Camp, July 14-18, 2013. There will be stargazing, outdoor cooking, crafts, games and more. Janet continues, “Camp offers hands-on learning that is fun and interactive. The activities girls engage in provide opportunities to be creative leaders and team members as they gain patience and build friendships.”
All camp programs are based on the values of the Girl Scout Promise and Law and our volunteers are carefully screened and trained to work with girls in groups to help plan and carry out each day’s activities.
Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland, and their dedicated volunteers, are committed to providing summer camp opportunities to every girl, regardless of her financial situation. Financial assistance is available for girls who otherwise would not be able to attend camp. Space is limited. Reminder: Girls do not have to currently be a Girl Scout to join the camp experience.
