There may be snow but we at Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois know that summer is coming fast! And we can’t wait to share all the fun opportunities that lay ahead.

The 2015 Summer Program Guide is available now!


Girl Scouts have a long tradition of camping and outdoor education. Camp is a great way for girls to explore leadership, build skills, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Whether they go for a day, week, or longer, Girl Scout camp gives girls an opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun under the guidance of caring, trained adults. Every girl deserves a chance to explore the outdoors!
