Camp operations: the Council's camp kaufmann in dutchess county, ny provided outdoor educational programs which were dirsupted due to the pandemic. In its place, the counsel designed an on-line virtual alternative, Girl sccout summer 2.0. 262 girls of all ages participated in in a series of staff and girl-led sessions to bring camp into the home and discover, learn, and have fun, while making New friends and exploring their immediate environment with simple materials and minimal supplies. Virtual campers met twice a day in small groups based on Girl Scout level separated into four themes: interstellar explorers, center stage experience, cybersecurity academy, and summer safari. Each week ended with an evening event for all campers to present what they learned, take virtual trips, and perform showcases.
