    Camp Woodlands is a great way for girls in kindergarten through grade five to have fun learning about Girl Scouts in a beautiful natural setting. Just west of Annapolis, Camp Woodlands is a real Girl Scout camp property where girls can play in the great outdoors, make tie-dye hats, hike nature trails, make s’mores over a camp fire, learn camp songs, meet nature center animals and make new friends. Girls are grouped with girls their own age for these fun-packed days.

    The Girl Scout staff will ensure that your girl has a great time as she learns what it means to be a Girl Scout. At the end of this mini-camp, girls will know what makes being a Girl Scout special. Girl Scouts’ mission nationwide is to build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. Two two-day sessions: June 22-23 and June 25-26. Register by June 15.
