Girl Scouts and those who wish to become one can “camp” at Wayne Community College this summer.

The campers will work toward badges appropriate for their grade level: Babysitter and Netiquette badges for Cadettes (grades 6-8) and Car Care and Business Etiquette badges for Seniors (grades 9-10). Ambassadors (grades 11-12) will design a Girl Scouts marketing and recruitment project.

Cost is $50 for Girl Scout members. Non-members pay $65 which includes a year’s membership in the organization.
