The World at Your Fingertips: Summer Camp Programs with Girl Scouts of Suffolk County

How many of you reading this have enjoyed summer camp over the years? Swimming, fishing, hiking, crafts, and more are all part of the experience, as is the forging of lifelong friendships. The camps at Girl Scouts of Suffolk County’s (GSSC) two scenic locations offer more than just a basic camp experience, they offer an opportunity to, with a little imagination, see the world! 
    This past year, GSSC proudly launched its state-of-the-art Discover World STEM Center, providing a place for young girls (and boys during camp season) to come explore, learn and embrace math and the sciences. Located at Camp Sobago, in Yaphank, NY, the STEM Center is a first-rate, hands-on approach to exploring the world of STEM through experiments and demonstrations, special guest presentations and field trips. 
    Participating in camp or school year programs at the STEM Center can be a virtual tour of the world. It gives participants the opportunity to learn about physics – and, perhaps, develop a passion that will take them to Switzerland to see the CERN Supercollider. Maybe one camper, hungry to learn about math or science will, in her travels, plan a visit to Greece to see the birthplace of modern science and mathematics. Italy could be the top choice for a visit for any young student who finds Leonardo Da Vinci, the ultimate Renaissance man, a hero beyond any other.  Attending STEM Camp at Camp Sobago also includes local field trips, providing campers with an opportunity to see and experience venues all throughout Long Island. 
    GSSC’s girls-only Camp Edey offers campers two opportunities – Journey to Adventure for girls in grades 1-6 and Teen-Ventures for those in grades 7-9. In Journey to Adventure, campers participate in activities around a different theme each week. Campers learn about an array of topics, each of which is designed to teach, inspire and create an experience that feels like a journey to another part of the world. What could be more exciting than a camp experience that awakens a desire to see the world and all it has to offer – from the Amazon to the Artic? Teen-Ventures takes girls on trips all around the region and into NYC. Sparking a ‘travel bug’ by opening their eyes to a sampling of what the Long Island and NYC have to offer, Teen-Ventures brings emerging adolescents on day trips throughout Nassau, Suffolk and NYC!
    GSSC campers enjoy all we have come to know about attending camp – fishing, paddle boating, swimming, mini golf, sports, nature and STEM activities, and games. Yet, GSSC goes beyond the typical to create a spark in girls and young women. Participants learn they can become scientists, mathematicians, or engineers. Further, they learn that there is much to see in this world, both on Long Island and far beyond. Today’s campers might be tomorrow’s world travelers or scientific researchers…and it can all begin at camp with Girl Scouts of Suffolk County.

Poolside Picks

Dive into your summer reading list

(Family Features) Laying out on the beach and floating in the pool are true hallmarks of summer. A good book, however, can elevate these relaxing experiences to a new level.

Whether you find yourself looking for a beach read, a book for the pool or something to help you escape while lounging on the couch with the windows open, these sizzling summer reads offer something for nearly every type of reader. From suspense to romance and adventure, you don’t want to miss these books this summer.

Some Secrets Aren’t Meant to Be Shared

From author Meg Mitchell Moore comes a warm, witty and suspenseful novel filled with small-town secrets, summer romance, big time lies and spiked seltzer. In “Two Truths and A Lie” the leader of an idyllic beach town “mom squad” has made surprising effort to include a new resident and her daughter in typically closed-group activities, though they’re not the only ones she’s been spending more time with. A blend of propulsive thriller and gorgeous summer read, Moore’s latest novel is a reminder that happiness isn’t always a day at the beach, some secrets aren’t meant to be shared and the most precious things are loved ones.

Romantic Adventure Proves Anything Can Happen

No. 1 “New York Times” bestseller Susan Elizabeth Phillips returns to her Chicago Stars series with a romance between a quarterback and one of the world’s greatest opera singers – and a major diva – in “When Stars Collide.” It’s Mozart meets Monday night football as the temperamental soprano and stubborn jock embark on a nationwide tour promoting a luxury watch brand, they engage in soul-searching, trash talk and backstage drama. Threatening letters, haunting photographs and a series of dangerous encounters also complicate their lives and make them wonder if it’s the work of an overzealous fan or something more sinister.

Transatlantic Love Story Raises the Royal Stakes

“New York Times” and “USA Today” bestselling author Alyssa Cole’s second Runaway Royals novel, “How to Find a Princess,” is an Anastasia-inspired romance featuring a long-lost princess who finds love with the female investigator tasked with tracking her down. When a threat to her grandmother’s livelihood pushes the princess to return to Ibarania, the investigator takes her on a transatlantic adventure. When they finally make it, they realize there’s more at stake than just cash and crown, and the princess must learn what it means to fight for what she desires rather than what she feels bound to by duty.
