Comments from Camp Seven Hills parents:
"They were very accommodating to all her needs in her first
time away from home. They seemed very supportive towards her as I
never received the phone call I was sure I was going to get the first night."
"Daughter said this was the best year out of 6 years!"
"[When she came home from camp,] my daughter decided by herself
to actually clean out her room of all her old toys and
outgrown clothing; something I have been trying to get her to do for
over a year!"
"Trips and adventure are key to the older girl experience. I
see immense leaps in independence with each experience of this type."
"She's shown leadership skills since she was 5 years old, and
camp has enhanced that."
"Girl Scouts has afforded me the opportunity to put my
granddaughter in a safe, fun, and fulfilling place!"
Comments from Camp Timbercrest parents:
"My daughter had an amazing experience and Camp Timbercrest is
a beautiful location."
"She was gone for 6 days and came back more confident and
self assured. She was very proud of herself."
"My daughter always comes home from a week of camp with a more
gracious attitude and ready and willing to jump in and help."
"She wishes to return next year as a RCIT!"
"She loved the swimming and the Polar Bear challenge. She also
was interested in horses and arts and crafts."
"I am pretty sure she would stay longer if she could."
"The staff was very friendly and kind to our daughter. She said
that everyone was very friendly and more like family at Camp Timbercrest."
"My daughter had the best time. When it was time to leave she
got emotional, she absolutely loved the camp leaders that were in her
group, and I loved that her first solo camping experience was such an
awesome one. Empowering my daughter with other awesome women is super
important to me. And Girl Scouts (camping) offers that!"
Comments from Camp Piperwood parents:
"My daughter didn't want to even go but after a day she didnt
want camp to end!"
"My daughters absolutely loved it. It was their first time
attending and we will be back next year!"
"Can't be anything better then when my daughter comes home
smiling and can't stop talking about how wonderful camp was!"
"She's excited to talk about it to the girls in her troop that
didn't attend camp this summer. She's excited to show them games she
learned and songs she sang."
"She learned new songs, how to do new friendship bracelets,
improved her archery, and generally improved her camping skills."
"This was her 3rd year at Piperwood for journey week and she
plans to go back next year."
"It a great place for girls especially one who never been apart
from mom or need help with leadership and confidence."
"Girl Scout camp has made a huge difference in my daughter's
life. Camp gives her a place to be a kid and have fun. Summer would
awful without this time and the special attention she gets from all
the camp counselors."
"She loved the outdoor cooking. Made this camp stand out from
other camps she attends."
