Volunteers Said

"It was a great chance to get to know the girls in my daughter's troop better. I got to know others in different troops and hear about what they do and plan for their troop. We exchanged ideas, and of course, it's always a great time to be outside!" -Volunteer, Troop Leader, and Mom

My favorite part about camp was "spending time with the girls and making new memories." - Volunteer and Mom

"It is so neat to see your child in action. You can get to know her friends and her friends' parents. Plus you get to make friends yourself. Just try it one day or one week." - Wendy, Mom and Volunteer
