Girl Scout camp provides girls with an opportunity to try new and exciting experiences, explore the wonders of nature, enjoy traditional camp activities and adventures, and create cherished memories that will last a lifetime.
What makes our camps so special? Girl Scout camp is unique in that it is girl-led. Guided by staff, girls of every age are involved in planning, organizing, and evaluating their camp activities. Girls are empowered as they learn and practice creative thinking, leadership, and decision-making skills.
Our camp programs are open to all girls entering kindergarten through grade 12—including those who have never participated in Girl Scouts. We offer both day and resident (overnight) camp programs.
Our summer staff are recruited from around the world. They are college students, mothers, teachers and others who enjoy working with children. They all complete an application and interview, provide references, and undergo a formal background check. All staff complete an intensive pre-camp training orientation before campers arrive. There are 2 counselors for every 12 girls at day camp and 2 counselors for every 10 girls at resident camp.

Financial aid is available for all girls living within our Council jurisdiction. Just complete the Summer Camp Financial Assistance Application here as soon as possible for consideration. Please feel free to contact us for assistance with completing the form.
