Olympic Ambitions for Zoey


ZoeyA simple summer camp activity has spun into Olympic ambition for Junior Girl Scout Zoey Buntjer. Two summers ago Zoey discovered archery during her first Camp Foxtail adventure. Now at 10 years old, and with several Girl Scout archery programs under her belt, Zoey has taken up private lessons. Attending weekly lessons, Zoey is on the fast track to meeting requirements to begin competitive archery tournaments.


"I am so glad that Girl Scouts got me started on this great sport, and I cannot wait to go to the Olympics," she said.


Camp is the ultimate self-esteem builder where kids discover the "I Can Do Anything!" attitude. Zoey is true inspiration to that phrase - she set a goal and put her Olympic dreams into action. Zoey is just one of more than 500 girls who will discover their own abilities and enjoy the summer fun of being a kid!

Pin Pals   

August 11    


Let's go bowling! Through Pin Pals girls will earn the Fair Play badge as they meet new friends and discover the ins and outs of traditional bowling. But, before girls take to the lanes to show off their best strikes, they will participate in team building activities. The fun will continue as girls get silly by creating a bowling game with their own rules!
