(08/13/13) - A walk through the woods, a horse back ride and an opportunity to learn new skills - like archery.
That's what more than 100 girls from around Mid-Michigan are doing right now. They traveled to Camp Linden for this summer time experience.
"They are loving it. It's a great experience," said Lisa Ingram, of Girl Scouts Michigan.
For many, it's the first trip away from home - but it's also a chance to grow, meet new people and enjoy summer.
"Some of them were scared to get on the horse, but they did. Some of them are scared to climb the wall, but they did. That's all that we ever ask is that you try," Ingram said.
Girl Scout leaders hoping to sign up more help, so more young women have an opportunity to join the fun when summer comes around next year.
"We have a big need for more volunteers," Ingram said. "I need people stepping up and wanting to be leaders so when can grow leaders for the next generation."
The camp was free for the girls. A grant helped pay their expenses.
