This year SMILE CAMP takes place at the Girl Scouts state of the art North Fork Leadership Center* in Middleburg.
Smile Camp activities are planned and staffed by 9-12th grade Girl Scouts, who are invited to participate as counselors in this outdoor experience with special needs campers. Counselors receive hands-on, intensive training and are paired to work one-to-one with a camper for the week. As counselors, girls help campers experience swimming, play games, participate in sing-a-longs, greet special guests, and stretch their artistic skills. Counselors provide physical assistance, gentle encouragement and one-on-one attention to the campers. They gain leadership experience and the love and respect of these special children.
Campers attend the week for a minimal fee, which includes lunch, snacks, and transportation to and from camp.
