Hi! I'm Amanda, summer camp director at Camp Tanasi. Here at Girl Scouts of the Southern Appalachians we are excited for your girl to join us this summer!

Camp is an amazing experience that will stay with kids long after the last embers of the campfire have faded away. At Girl Scouts resident camp, girls will learn new skills, work toward earning badges, meet lifetime friends, and so much more! 

Below, you’ll find information to help you and your camper prepare for the 2018 summer camp season. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns at: info@girlscoutcsa.org.
