Welcome to Blazin' Ahead! A page devoted entirely to GSNEO camp and property updates. Check back often to see what GSNEO is doing to make your camping experience the memory of a lifetime.

 

Postcards from Camp

Camping is an integral part of the Girl Scout experience and I want our camps to be the best place for every girl to have that experience! Girls practice independence when they spend a night away from home. They will build courage when tackling something new, like boating or zip lining. They will build confidence when they succeed in a new environment supported by friends and adult role models. They will build character in an environment that insists on teamwork for success. Whether you come out to camp for a day, or stay a week, you will leave with lasting memories.

I am constantly looking at new ways to make improvements efficiently, making best use of our limited funds. We all want new facilities , but we also have to spend money taking care of what we have, so on this page you will see a mix of new construction and maintenance. I always want to hear from you, please let me know what you love and what you would like to see improved, it really helps us make the camps better for you. Send your ideas to jchristyson@gsneo.org.

Yours in Girl Scouts,

Jane Christyson
Chief Executive Officer
Girl Scouts of North East Ohio
