Girl Camper held a three-day event that lasted until this past Sunday at Lock & Dam Park in Georgia’s Floyd County, a report said.

The group is one of the most prominent national organizations focused on empowering women through camping.

Janine Pettit founded the organization, fueled by her love for nature. The group now has over 147,000 women from 37 states as its members.

Georgia’s chapter representative Yolanda Edwards stated that she and her team appreciate the freedom.

“You don’t always have to have a gentlemen with you to get outdoors,” Edwards said. “We want to make Georgia aware that girl campers are here. It’s all about connecting. We love coming together.”

Rome-Floyd County Parks and Rec Special Services Manager Mary Hardin Thornton is happy about the association’s initiative.

“I think it’s really cool that these women are getting together, getting out in the woods, going fishing, and doing things like that,” she said. “It looks really fun and they’ve got such a great spirit. I’m thrilled they came to Rome and used our camp spot.”

Thornton stated that Girl Camper is one of the numerous women’s groups that has been going to the Lock & Dam campground since the pandemic.

“We’ve noticed that it seems like everyone has bought an RV during the pandemic,” she said.

“There has been a great increase in camping at Lock & Dam ever since last year. This year keeps breaking the records for visitors on weekends and weekdays. There are tons of groups of women that go.”
