Asalaamu Alaikum,

Camping, a true Girl Scout tradition, is an opportunity for girls to learn new skills, hang out with old friends, and meet new friends. Troop 3480 will be joining Service Unit 22-6 this year at Camp Letts on May 1 – 3, 2015.

YMCA Camp Letts is located on a 219 acre peninsula on an inlet off the Chesapeake Bay that overlooks three islands and a 2,600 acre preserve that has served as the backdrop for over 100 summers of land and aquatic adventures


All levels can participate in encampment activities, but Daisies are limited to the day program. Dues must be paid in full. We must also meet girl/adult ratios per group. To ensure your daughter’s participation, parents should commit to becoming a registered Girl Scout volunteer and join the adventure.
