The Wait is Over: Summer Camp 2020 Registration Opens
It’s a new year. And you know what that means? A new year of Girl Scout summer camp is on the horizon!
Registration is now open for our 2020 summer resident camp at Camp Tanasi in Andersonville, TN. Camp Tanasi's summer camp focuses on teaching girls independence, outdoor skills, and social skills in a safe, fun environment. Campers will try a variety of activities each day, giving them the chance to make friends and try new things. This year, we are offering new themes for Themed Weeks, and there are new badges that you can earn as well!
With each summer camp season, we offer a variety of programming for rising 1st -12th graders. Girls can select Themed Weeks that align with their interests. Interested in being a Summer Scientist? Or do you love Magic & Mysteries? How about Fireflies? Want to become a Camp HERo? If any of these topics piqued your interest, then there’s a Themed Week for you! Older girls who sign up for a Wilderness Week get to sleep in a hammock and learn how to cook over an open fire. Three-day long Camper Samplers offer girls the chance to try out summer camp without making a week-long commitment.
Regular summer camp activities such as swimming in the pool, fishing, and crafts are offered to campers every week. Climbing tower, archery range, and boating in Norris Lake are available every week to campers 4th grade and up. High school girls can sign up for a two-week Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program and learn how to be a camp counselor all while building on their leadership skills. Girls earn Girl Scout badges no matter what program option they sign up for!
You can view all the summer camp programming options for 2020 and register today on our website. You don’t have to be a Girl Scout to attend our summer camp; it is open to non-members (excluding the CIT programs). However, members pay a lower fee for camp so join today!
