Each camp offers a variety of programs created just for you. With so many choices, there is something here for every girl!
Camping is a great way to build new skills, get a sense of community, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Whether you go for a day, a week or longer, Girl Scout camping gives you an opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun—always under the guidance of caring, trained adults. Every girl should have a chance to camp!
Resident Camp is a camping experience in which campers live at our camp - usually for a week. Girls sleep in platform tents with other girls and learn so many different kinds of outdoor activities during their stay. Girl can go horseback riding, boating, canoeing, archery, hiking, arts & crafts, and try our challenge course. Girls sign up as individual campers or go with a buddy. The girls and their counselors plan activities, and take advantage of the many resources available at camp.
Day Camp is camping by the day. Girls may sign up as individual campers or go with buddies. The girls and staff plan and carry out activities. Our day camp is held at our camp sites as well as in our council communities with council- trained staff and approving the facilities and site.
At Girl Scout camp we work hard to see that our campers grow in their courage, confidence, and character while they are with us. One of the ways we see to this is by allowing girls to work together to create their own experience at camp. Counselors facilitate this process as they keep in mind the program the girls have signed up for and guide them as needed. The girls play an active role in creating rules for their group and creating a unit agreement all the girls and staff sign. They also love to voice their opinions on activities they want to do during their time at camp. As the girls share ideas and brainstorm the counselors help them set a schedule for the week.
