Where Do Event Proceeds Go?

When you visit the Smith Point Light Show, you are helping families in your community. 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, Financial Aid, 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 its stewardship of two camp properties: Camp Edey in Bayport on the Sans Souci Lakes, and Camp Sobaco in Yaphank’s Pine Barrens on the banks of the Carman’s River.
