The Joyce Seymour Leadership Endowment Fund:
Ensuring Opportunities for Girls
What is the Joyce Seymour Leadership Endowment Fund?
Begun by a group of former Camp Shantituck staffers at their 2011 summer reunion the Joyce Seymour Leadership Fund is an endowment fund to provide money for character-building opportunities for girls to participate in Girl Scout camps and outdoor adventures. The Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE) helps girls discover what they can do, learn to connect with others, and take action to improve the world around them. There is no better place to do that than in an outdoor setting. The former staff of Camp Shantituck admired Joyce Seymour as their Camp Director in the 1960's-70's and have set up this endowment fund in partnership with Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana to honor Joyce, and their experiences at Camp Shantituck and in Girl Scouting.

What better role model than Joyce Seymour?
Joyce has devoted her life to making a difference in the lives of girls and women. She regularly volunteers with groups throughout the city of Louisville, Kentucky. In addition, she is a founding member of Women4Women; a member of Rotary Club of Louisville; a member of Zonta, a global organization of executives working to advance women world-wide; and a recipient of Kentucky's Prestigious Bell Award for Volunteerism.
An investment in the Joyce Seymour Leadership Fund is an investment in future leaders like Joyce--women with the passion and know-how to change the world!

The Camp Shantituck Reunion Staff admired Joyce Seymour as their Camp Director in the 1960's-70's. Today these women (and a few men!) are leaders of non-profit organizations, for-profit companies, K-12 schools, colleges and universities. This group has already committed over $215,000 to the Joyce Seymour Leadership Fund.
