Dare to be Daring with Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan

I am a Leader. I am a Go-Getter. I am Creative. I am Strong. I am Bold. 

My daughter and I found these inspiring words on our freshly baked, hand-delivered Lemon-Up Girl Scout cookies. These are phrases we can all get behind and remind ourselves how powerful our daughters are.

Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan can play an integral role in your daughter’s life because we all want to raise our daughters to be strong, confident and courageous in today’s world.

GSHOM offers more than just delicious cookies and scouting programs; girls can join them this summer for some pretty amazing overnight and day camp adventures.

Bold, Fun Adventure at Girl Scout Camp

Some of my fondest memories growing up were of summer camp and I know my daughter will feel the same. Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan is excited to offer a variety of options for summer camp for ANY girl (Grade 1 – 12).

What are you waiting for?

80% of Girl Scouts said they have a strong sense of self and are confident in who they are and what they can do in the world. Girl Scout camp is the perfect way to get started, offering both overnight and day camp options.

Scholarships are available for all the camps but your daughter must be a registered Girl Scout to apply.
