Sara Sloughfy, a camper at this year’s Camp Fury, is a Girl Scout from Jacksonville, Alabama. Sloughfy is going into her junior year of High School in the fall and found out about Camp Fury on the Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) Destinations web page. Last year she attended a Destinations camp that took her to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Parks.
Passionate about the environment and the world around her, Sloughfy is energetic and involved in not only Girl Scouts, but also serves as an Alabama 4-H State Ambassador as well as the President of the Alabama 4-H STEM League and a member of the Alabama 4-H Tech Changemakers. She plays soccer, is on the swim team, and runs cross country and track. “I actually really love the (Physical Training) PT at camp, I know not everyone does, but it’s one of my favorite parts,” said Sloughfy.
Reflecting back on her week at Camp Fury, Sloughfy said, “Camp Fury was an experience I will never forget. The women who volunteered their time and knowledge truly embodied the phrase "Girl Power". Seeing strong, powerful, and successful women in Law Enforcement and the Fire Service opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities and taught me that you can do anything if you set your mind to it. Camp Fury inspired me in ways that I never imagined, and I left Tucson, Arizona with a new sense of confidence and a love of helping others.”
