Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois offers a variety of summer camp sessions, including day and overnight camp, at Camp Dean in Big Rock, Illinois.
Camp Dean is open to all girls -- not just Girl Scouts -- in first to 12th grade.
Since girls select their own experiences in Girl Scouts, they can choose to limit their participation to camp enjoyment! Girls do not have to join a troop.
Financial assistance for camp is available to registered members of GSNI. To view the 2014 Camp Guide or register for camp, visit www.girlscoutsni.org.
Registration is open for these camps.
