Resident Camp By the Numbers

It’s hard to believe, but it’s that time of year, Girl Scout Summer Camp is over and school is about to begin. Our amazing counselors have left camp, the horses are taking a well-deserved break, and all the craft supplies have been packed away and we are left with favorite camp songs repeating in our heads. It was a phenomenal summer, with more than double the number of girls Camp Little Cloud has seen in a good long while. Here are some fun facts about summer camp, according to the numbers!

875 Girls developed their leadership and independence, learned practical outdoor skills like fire building and made friendships to last a lifetime. That is more than double the number of girls who attended camp at Camp Little Cloud last summer.

 

131 girls received financial assistance, helping to ensure that every girl has the opportunity to experience the outdoors.

 

60 adults, parents and Girl Scout volunteers explored camp with their girls, having fun and spending time together during weekend sessions for troops and families.

40 camp staff acted as role models, comforted during home sickness and provided a safe and memorable experience.

 

7 weeks of fun in the sun, with only a little bit of rain!

 

All of these numbers led up to:
