HUNTERTOWN, Ind. (WFFT) - Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana Michigan were celebrating on Thursday.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of Camp McMillen for the Girl Scouts.

The camp hosts a number of different activities for Girl Scout troops during the summer, such as serving food and playing games to help teach leadership skills and encourage girls to become confident women.

Beth McCord with the Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana Michiana says the community has been the biggest reason why they’ve had 70 years of success locally.

McCord said, "Our local community continues to support and see value in the camp and send the girls here so they can continue to learn leadership skills through the program of girl scouts."

All though this is the 70th year of Camp McMillen, the Girl Scouts have been helping young girls for over 100 years.
