Today’s Girl Scout camp experiences offer amazing summer fun! Girls can choose sessions that include riding horses, zip lining, canoeing, swimming, training to be a camp counselor, and more!! They share amazing experiences of building independence, learning to be leaders and having a great time in the outdoors with their friends.
Girl Scout camp is a safe, fun, and affordable option for summer.

Expectations of Camp
Typical Day Schedule
Summer Camp is a place to make new friends, as many girls come to camp not knowing anyone. Camp staff are trained to help girls make new friends, but if your camper would like to be placed in a unit with a buddy, both girls must register for the same session, indicating the buddy choice when they register for camp.
Cell phones are not allowed at any of our camps. Along with poor reception at our camps, we are not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged phones. Any cell phone brought to camp will be secured in the camp office until the camper returns home. Please help us enforce this policy by ensuring that your camper does not bring a cell phone to camp. Any cell phones brought to camp will be secured in the camp office until your camper returns home.
Campers are not permitted to make phone calls while at camp. If any concerns or questions arise during your camper's experience, a member of our staff will call you. Although our staff takes time to get to know each child, you are the expert when it comes to your child. If there is any indication that your camper may not have a successful experience, we will contact you to discuss the concerns and find the best solution.
All members of our staff are at least 18 years old and are selected for their maturity, enthusiasm, experience, leadership ability, compassion, and commitment in putting campers first! All of our potential staff members go through a comprehensive screening and interview process, including background and reference checks. After being hired each summer, staff members participate in an intensive, week-long training program in child development, group management, camping skills, conflict resolution, bullying prevention, CPR/First Aid, and specialty areas. Many staff return year after year because we know that retaining our staff is important to your camper’s experience.
Campers are taught and encouraged to communicate any needs that arise to camp staff. Campers use sunscreen on a regular basis and are encouraged to drink plenty of water. Campers are also covered by supplemental health and accident insurance. The insurance cost is included in the camp fee.
