A gaggle of Wrangell girls comb the beach at Shoemaker Bay on Tuesday with instructor Josie Ward, during the week-long summer camp being held by Girl Scouts of Alaska.

Each summer, millions of children across the country partake in some sort of camp experience, be it for sports, outdoor adventuring or social development. The American Camp Association estimates 7.8 million young Americans will attend more than 14,000 different day and residential camps this summer.

Wrangell-area girls have been able to enjoy the summer camp experience for themselves this week, put on by the Girl Scouts of Alaska (GSAK). A pair of instructors has been holding day camps out at Shoemaker Bay Park since Monday, with activities for around two dozen girls to wrap up tomorrow.
