Think GSNC's Summer Camps - Camp Blue Bay Sleepaway Camp and Summer Fun Day Camp at Wantagh

Think Summer Camp!

Camping is a fun and great way to build new skills, participate in camp activities, get a sense of community, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Girl Scout Camp provides girls with an opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun-always under the guidance of caring, trained adult volunteers or camp counselors.
