Girl Scouts of West Central Florida is hosting three Camp CEO events in the upcoming program year in the areas of Professional Leadership, Civic Leadership and for the first time STEM Leadership! Camp CEO connects high school Girl Scouts with accomplished female business leaders through teambuilding and skill sharing in a relaxed weekend camping retreat. Our deadline to apply for the next Camp CEO Professional Leadership Weekend event is quickly approaching on September 23. Not sure if you should apply? Here’s what one of our past participants had to say about her experience. She was apprehensive at first too but ended up having an incredible time.
Emma, Girl Scout Senior
I believe that girls should attend Camp CEO because it will be a great experience all around. I went into the camp knowing nobody and I walked in and saw Annabelle, another girl I already knew from Girl Scouts. During the weekend, we got a lot closer and we were so excited that we saw each other.
I signed up for Camp CEO because I was excited to meet new girls that have a personality like mine because we had to present and be open to each other. After Camp CEO I was hoping that I would be able to get a good outline of my Gold Award and meet very successful and important women. I definitely accomplished both of those things! I also learned that women are powerful people and can do anything if they work hard.
At first, I didn’t want to go because I didn’t think that I would be able to share my ideas with people I hadn’t met before, but I left the camp knowing how to present myself, be more confident, and that women can do anything. So it doesn’t matter how many people you know or your experience with business women because you meet amazing girls and learn helpful skills for the future.

At Camp CEO we got mentors, I loved getting the mentors over everything. We got to meet an amazing and successful person that can help and guide us through anything, Girl Scout related or not. My mentor and I had met briefly before but that was it. When I got to camp and we played the activity to receive our mentors, I got to meet Stephanie, the best mentor there was!! Camp CEO was amazing and I for sure recommend the camp to every girl because you will come out of the camp ready and alert for the future.
