The Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina have received a $2,500 grant from the Exchange Club of Charleston for a Leadership Camp. The money will go towards sending 6th to 8th grade at-risk girls in Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties to this camp. This is the second annual “Discover the Leader in YOU!” Leadership Camp for Girl Scouts of Eastern SC. This special leadership camp features typical summer camp activities like swimming in addition to leadership skills training.
The girls will also have the opportunity to hear from accomplished guest speakers who are successful in their career fields. The speakers include CEO's, area doctors and business owners. They will speak to the girls about their experiences, share lessons they have learned along the way and engage in mentoring opportunities with the girls.
