Girl Scouts’ unique programs and services are offered to all children in a myriad of ways: traditional avenues, such as troops, partnerships with school districts in STEM and Arts education, learning opportunities with other agencies, and programs for children and families in underserved communities. The Light Show enables Girl Scouts to continue to send children in need to summer camp and to maintain stewardship of its two camp properties, Camp Edey in Bayport and Camp Sobaco in Yaphank.
