Empower Her

The campaign to transform our camps and our girls
 

GIVE NOW

There’s a place where girls can go to get away and come alive. It’s a place she’ll visit when she’s young, and then revisit in her mind for the rest of her life. The life lessons, the leadership skills, and the self-empowerment she gained means she’ll always have a little camp in her. And while she may not know it now, the woman she’s going to become will be forever grateful.

Maybe you were one of those girls, and maybe you’re the woman you are today because of that experience at Girl Scout camp. Or maybe you’ve seen the impact on your girl, and it left a little camp in you.

Studies show that outdoor experiences are essential to leadership development in girls. Your gift to the Empower Her campaign will give girls the programmatic experiences and facilities they deserve by making significant, state-of-the-art improvements at four Girl Scouts of Western Ohio camps.

See the planned improvements—to our lodges, our trails, our pools, plus new education activity centers—that will make camp an even more magical experience:
