What parents say about Camp Scherman:
Whatever you've been doing over the years, it has worked for my daughter. She has turned out to be an amazing girl because of Girl Scouting and the experiences she had at Camp Scherman.

My daughters have been to Camp Scherman for 13 years and it's always an awesome experience!
