Over the last two weeks, I've visited our three resident camps with our video production manager to interview counselors, CITs and even a couple campers about their experiences at camp for some upcoming video projects. I've heard tons of great camp memories (and shared a few of my own), found out what makes being a camp counselor an awesome job (spoiler alert: it's having fun with our awesome Girl Scout campers) and even met a couple girls who discovered their career paths at camp. (From sailing at Camp Casa Mare to studying marine engineering - impressive!)
Between interviews, I had a chance to tag along for some camp activities and thought I'd share some of the photos I've snapped at resident camp - hope you enjoy them! If you have your own photos from camp, please feel free to share them on our Facebook page! - Miranda

|Camp Casa Mare has a brand new pier - perfect for fishing or|
simply enjoying the surf & sun.
|Campers working hard to get their boats ready|
to go out on the water.
|Ready, set, sail! Gorgeous morning on Galveston Bay.|
|The rain kept us inside at Camp Misty Meadows, but we were treated to|
a preview of the dance class' spectacular routine.
|Archery has been HUGE this year with all the girls who love Katniss in|
The Hunger Games. Here one of our Camp Agnes Arnold counselors,
Naruto, helps a camper perfect her technique.
|SPLASH! Campers are absolutely loving the new "megaslide" |
this summer at Camp Arnold. I love this camper's
karate chop move as she flies into Shadow Lake.
|Some of our Camp Arnold campers waiting for the campfire to start.|
|No week at camp would be complete without some ice cream.|
Klondike crunch or ice cream sandwich? Can't go wrong with either!
|Navajo sharing the history of Camp Arnold with campers. She was a |
counselor herself in the 1960s and even wrote a book for the Council
on Camp Arnold's history.
|Sunset at Camp Arnold - can you guess why|
it's called Shadow Lake?
