Middle School Madness

This summer, GSCCC is offering a summer camp session just for girls who will be starting middle school in the fall. This unique camp, Middle School Madness, will be held August 10 -15 at Camp Darden.

During their fun-filled week at Middle School Madness, girls will learn how to navigate relationships, find true friendships, deal with social conflicts and gain self-confidence as they complete the Girl Scout Cadette It’s Your World—Change It! aMAZE! Journey. In the supportive all-girl environment of Girl Scout camp, girls will be able to openly talk with their peers, as well as supportive adult counselors, about their fears and concerns about starting middle school.
Girl Scouts will complete the aMAZE!
Leadership Journey at camp.

To coincide with the aMAZE! Journey, girls will take part in activities from the Girl Scouts of the USA Be a Friend First anti-bullying program, which gives girls a chance to explore thorny issues, such as peer pressure, stereotyping, gossip and cliques, by engaging in role-plays, creating writing, games and discussion exercises. Girls will also be encouraged to take on leadership roles with activities through Ban Bossy, a public service campaign recently launched by Girl Scouts of the USA and Lean In to support girls to be ambitious, speak up and take the lead.

At camp, girls will also be able to take advantage of all of the amenities Camp Darden has to offer, including canoeing, swimming, archery and a low-ropes challenge course. They will also explore the new adventures they’ll face in middle school, including changing classes and opening lockers.

Camp registration can be completed online here. For questions about this camp session email All girls, whether or not they are currently registered members of Girl Scouts, are invited to attend summer camp with Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast.
