Girl Scout Camp is not only about gaining outdoor skills and friendships - it’s about helping girls discover who they are by exploring the world around them. At camp, girls realize that anything is possible…and that their next great adventure is just around the corner.
Whether they go for a day, a week, or longer, camping provides girls with the opportunity to plan, budget, pack, cook, build a fire, and leave a place better than she found it.
Each of our 4 camp properties gives girls and leaders a chance to explore historically significant and visually breathtaking parts of the Hudson Valley. Each camp offers different programmatic aspects and different amenities, and we’re happy to help you choose one that works best for you and your needs.
Every girl deserves a chance to camp, and Girl Scout camp programs are open to ALL girls!
