Girl Scouts cancels summer camps due to COVID-19

Health and safety concerns have prompted the cancellation of Girl Scouts camps.

Girl Scouts of Western New York made the announcement on Tuesday, which means that approximately 2,000 campers will be impacted. Both day camps and overnight camps are affected by the cancellation.

“While this is obviously a hard decision, we doubt this comes as a surprise to most people,” said Girl Scouts CEO Alison Wilcox.

“We must put the safety of girls, families, volunteers and staff first, and there’s no way we can see accommodating campers in proximity to each other and staff in camp settings safely during this time,” she added.
