Camp CEO Application Materials for Girls
- More information to come!
As girls grow with Girl Scouts, they have increasing opportunities to expand their leadership potential. Through the older girl programs, we strive to keep Cadette, Senior, and Ambassadors engaged in Girl Scouts, by offering more adventurous, extensive, focused, and engaging opportunities.
Girl Scouts has provided me with many benefits over the years,
mostly in the form of friendship, fun, leadership, and commitment.

High Adventure Art in the Land of Enchantment
Last summer, GSNMT hosted a Destination for Girl Scouts from across the country. These Girl Scouts learned the art of photography while being immersed in art, culture, and adventure in the Southwest. These adventure and culture-loving girls spent ten days in northern New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment. Their base camp was Camp Elliott Barker, where they learned and practiced photography techniques, challenged themselves on the ropes course, and took day trips, rafting the Rio Grande, rock climbing at Tres Piedras, and horseback riding in Red River.
