Dear Girl Scout Family 


We're in the final days of summer camp. We hope you were able to "explore your world" in the outdoors with us this summer!  


A big THANK YOU to parents, volunteers, and summer camp counselors who came together to make another summer of great memories!


We're looking for cute short stories (1-5 paragraphs) and photographs to share in upcoming publications. Submit through Leadership Stories on our website or E-mail direct to me.


Thanks again!
