WESTON, Conn. -- Camp Aspetuck in Weston, a Girl Scout that offers activities for girls in grades K-12, will hold an open house on Sunday, May 1, from 2-4 p.m. to show off its camp offerings.
The day camp has free bus service for campers, with stops in Darien, Greenwich, New Canaan, Norwalk, Redding, Ridgefield, Stamford, Weston, Westport and Wilton.
Operated by Girl Scouts of Connecticut, Camp Aspetuck is licensed by the State of Connecticut and accredited by the American Camp Association.
At all Girl Scouts of Connecticut day camps, girls can take part in new programs while participating in all of the traditional activities camp has to offer.
Girls can sample culture and learn different skills in outdoor cooking, food prep, and safety. They can take away a passport filled with recipes to take home with the program "International Food Traveler." They can chart the stars, build a rocket and then pack their gear with the Trip to Mars program. They can refine their outdoor living skills in fire building, shelter making and trail signs at Girl Scout Survival Camp.
Throughout the summer, girls will develop leadership qualities, learn and practice outdoor skills, receive instructional swim and more.
Younger girls begin their camp experience by leading songs and playing games. Girls in grades 9-12 can participate in a number of leadership programs.
Each member of the summer camp staff has been screened and chosen for their skills and experience. All staff receive more than 30 hours of training in child development, team building, safety and risk management.
