Project Overview

Remember that summer feeling — that feeling of freedom, excitement and possibility? You wanted to pack every moment with something fun. You were in charge of your adventure, and it was awesome. Help Girl Scout Summer Camp be the gateway for that summer feeling for girls in the Ozarks. 

In 2021, we're offering a menu of adventure to provide a wide range of opportunities, from one day to week-long in-person sessions at two different camps, to another summer of virtual girl-led, outdoor adventures — delivered to their front door. 

Every girl can find summer adventures that are as awesome as she is — whatever her interests, age, or level of outdoor experience. But she can't do it without your help. 

Girl Scout Summer Camp may look a little different this year, but our mission is the same! Your contribution will help provide financial assistance for girls to attend camp, to increase our safety measures, to fund the costs of high quality staff, and to purchase equipment. 

As with all aspects of our lives in early 2020, our organization, our girls, and our Girl Scout families were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In mid-March, we suspended in-person Girl Scout activities and our staff began working from home. Keeping safety as our priority, we ended the in-person Girl Scout Cookie Program two weeks early and canceled several large events and summer camp. The financial impact of the pandemic is ongoing. We need your help to power our promise, and deliver that summer feeling back to our girls.

About Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland

Girl Scouts takes the potential of girls, combines it with robust skill-building programming, and adds caring adult mentors and strong female role models.

Everything a Girl Scout does centers around STEM, the outdoors, development of life skills, and entrepreneurship, and is designed to meet her where she is now and to grow along with her. Whether she’s building a robotic arm, coding her first app, building a shelter in the backcountry, or packing for her first hike, a Girl Scout has an exciting array of choices to suit her interests at every age.

At Girl Scouts, “Can I?” quickly turns into “I will!”

As girls transform their ideas into action, turn their questions into adventure, and grow their confidence through practice. And with more than 3,500 Girl Scout adults across the Ozarks to cheer them on every step of the way, there’s no limit to what she can accomplish.

Girl Scouts works.

It’s the best leadership experience for girls in the world for one very good reason: because it’s girl-led! Research shows that girls learn best in an all-girl, girl-led, and girl-friendly environment. Girl Scouts is a place where she’ll practice different skills, explore her potential, take on leadership positions—and even feel allowed to fail, dust herself off, get up, and try again.

The inclusive, all-female environment of a Girl Scout troop creates a safe space where girls can try new things, develop a range of skills, take on leadership roles, and just be themselves.

We need your help to make sure every girl in every zip code across the Ozarks has access to crucial, life-changing, girl-led programming that will launch her into a lifetime of leadership and building positive change—for her, for you, and for all of us.  Help us power our promise.
