Licking Valley Cluster Girl Scout Summer Day Camp 2013
Choosing a summer camp is a very important decision. Girl Scout Summer Day Camps are structured to provide activities tailored to the age and experience of the camper girls. Day camp programs have the key ingredients: choices, challenges, physical activity, caring counselors, safety, and personal attention - to provide an overall quality experience for girls.
All day camp staff are trained, but more importantly, they are self motivated, to provide a positive and memorable experience for the girls. All staff have completed reference checks, background checks, and personal interviews, followed by comprehensive training prior to opening day.
Girl Scout Summer Day Camp meets the highest standards of health, safety, program, and staffing. Local and state laws and Girl Scouts of the USA guidelines are carefully observed. The GSKWRC Licking Valley Day Camp is an American Camp Association Accredited Camp.
