El Ranchito Day Camp
El Ranchito Day Camp
MISSION OF CAMP
At Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles, our goal is to provide an enriching atmosphere that fosters growth and development in our campers as they participate in carefully designed, dynamic activities.
GSGLA camps focus on the Girl Scout Leadership Experience—a model that engages girls in discovering themselves, connecting with others, and taking action to make the world a better place.
This model is more inclusive and empowering of girls because the experiences are girl-led. Activities encourage experiential and cooperative learning. Each week is a new adventure as girls explore interactive themes that keep them engaged and learning.
