Girl Scouts partner with Historic Campground

The Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago & Northwest Indiana hosted an all day Camp leader training at the Chicago District Campground on Saturday, October 13, 2018. Module 2 and 3 Camp Training is a required training for all Girl Scout leaders interested in bringing their Girl Scouts tent camping and to begin teaching them how to cook over a fire.

Girl Scouts have a long history of getting girls outside and many Girl Scouts will tell you camping is their favorite activity. Connecting with nature in a girl-led environment is one of the great benefits of the Girl Scouting program.

Heather Larson, with Girl Scout Service Unit 404 covering Des Plaines, Mount Prospect and Prospect Heights stated, “We are excited to partner with the campground for this and hopefully more opportunities in the future. Girl Scouts and Shift2Green, the camps outreach liaison share a similar mission to promote outdoor activity and environmental stewardship.” There are over 700 girl Girl Scouts in Service Unit 404 and over 300 adult Girl Scouts.

Established in 1860, the Chicago District Campground resides on 36-acres nestled among old growth trees, and is bordered by forest preserve to the north and south, the Des Plaines River to the west, and the 56-mile River Trail to the east.
