Janet Pedrotti has been with the Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas for four years serving as their Director of Development, handling all fundraising activities for the council. Janet shared with us about Camp Metro and Camp La Jita and shared the 2019 Camp Guide. The Guide will be available at our hospitality table at our next meeting in case you missed it!  Camp Metro is broken into 8 individual weeks of summer camp fun. Groups are split into appropriate age groups. There are hands-on projects and at the end of the week there is a field trip and they try to pair the field trip with the theme. The girls have the opportunity to earn patches. Good news: girls don't need to be a Girl Scout to come - this is open to all girls! To assist working parents the program offers before and after camp care and transportation to the Girl Scouts Headquarters.  The camps are some of the lowest cost in San Antonio - a quality program at an affordable cost. Interestingly, S.T.E.M.: science, technology, engineering & math are worked in every single program. The emphasis is on fun & learning - keeping them engaged during the summer. Girls are surveyed at the beginning and at the end of camp to see how they've grown. Janet reports that Vulcan Materials is the most popular field trip! Tuition is $175 per week and there is tuition assistance available. Our Club donations help with tuition assistance so that no girl is turned away.
