Backed by more than 100 years of experience, Girl Scout camps provide a unique opportunity for girls to build independence, develop social skills, and explore new interests. Camp is a place for girls to grow, explore, and have fun. At camp, girls learn the value of cooperation and team building as they gain the confidence and skills they need to grow into healthy young women.

Three Types of Camp

A.K.A. sleep away or overnight camp, resident camp is a place for girls to try new things and build outdoor skills like archery, horseback riding, sailing, hiking, or a little bit of everything.

 

Troop Camp (OPENS MAR 2018) 

Camp with your troop and sample a variety of activities like swimming, crafting, canoeing, and kayaking.

 

Day Camp (OPENS MAR 2018)

From welding or coding robots to being on a swim team, day camps give girls a chance to try something different and meet other girls who share their passion.

Caddie Training: (Training available in April and May)

The Caddie Program has been around for more than 40 years and the underlying purpose has remained the same. Older girls can develop valuable leadership skills used to volunteer at volunteer-led day camps, service unit encampments, and more! Caddie Training teaches outdoor skills, outdoor cooking, tent care, songs and games and communication skills. Most importantly, girls have FUN.
