Do you like camp? Do you like being away from your family? Well, then you’ll love Camp Blue Bay in East Hampton, which is a Girl Scout camp.
It’s a sleepaway camp, and it’s a whole lot of fun. I went last summer, and we did arts and crafts, went swimming in the bay, went boating, had random dance parties and saw a bunch of deer. Mostly Girl Scouts go there, but other girls can go, but their parent or guardian would have to pay more, since Girl Scouts get a discount.
Getting there is easy, and so is getting home. I was able to get on a bus at Hofstra University. You go to the dining hall for your meals, unless you are going to have a cookout.
I hope that this year more girls participate in Camp Blue Bay. It is a great way to be with friends and make new friends, too. If you are a Girl Scout in Nassau County, go online to gsnc.org and click on camp.
