Any little one who’s longing for a Girl Scout vest dotted with patches will feel like she’s earned her stripes after a weekend at Camp Kaufmann. Both members and nonaffiliated newcomers are welcome to choose from a mom and daughter trip or the mini sleepaway program, in which they are supervised by experienced staff. The girls are divided into groups based on age or program track (Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, etc.) and spend their days diving into classic camp offerings like archery, swimming, boating and ropes courses. The gorgeous rolling hills of Dutchess County are the perfect setting for nighttime hikes and evocative campfire gatherings, and special themed parties on Saturday nights make weekends especially memorable. Newbies will cherish time-honored traditions like friendship songs, the Trading Post and the flag ceremony. Ages 5–17.
