Whether you’re discovering the wildlife in your own backyard, swimming in a lake for the first time at summer camp or being a citizen scientist and observing bees in your neighborhood park, every outdoor adventure grows your “I’ve got this” attitude. And once you unlock that confidence, you’ll aim as high as the stars you see outside your cabin window.
Canoeing solo across a lake. Learning to canter on a horse. Counting stars in the night sky.
These are just a few of the experiences awaiting Girl Scouts who are ready to explore the great outdoors. Camp and outdoor experiences can be enjoyed during summer camp, day camp, or year-round.
Our properties host camping and outdoor activities, which remain a favorite for girls at every age, as they have been throughout Girl Scout history. We offer summer day and resident camp programs. Prior Girl Scout membership is not required.
Year-round, girls can conquer our high ropes challenge courses and camp in cabins and tents, learn outdoor and survival skills, and discover nature.

Did you know that Girl Scout safety standards are stricter than the Department of Health? At Girl Scout camp, we have a higher adult to girl ratios, well-trained staff, and stringent safety policies ensuring that no matter how much fun she’s having, it’ll be in the safest way possible.
We want girls to have a voice. And that includes helping decide the week’s activities. At Girl Scout camp, campers help make decisions that affect the group, and are given a chance to help plan the week – so it’s all about them, and doing what makes them happiest.
Whether it’s swimming, boating, tying knots, or conquering the ropes course, we know girls learn at different paces. At Girl Scout camp, girls of all skill abilities will have the chance to challenge themselves and continue to master skills.
Giving girls the courage they need to try new things, the confidence they need to feel good about themselves, and the character traits of a strong leader and community citizen.
When we ask campers and parents to share their favorite aspects of Girl Scout camp, our staff always makes the list. Our counselors not only make camp fun and exciting but inspire the next generation of girls.
Is she currently a Girl Scout? Have her continue the Girl Scout experience throughout the summer, and come back to school in the fall with extra badges for her vest. Not a Girl Scout? That’s fine too, she can still show-off her new Archery badge with pride after shooting a bullseye.
It’s so easy to get caught in the hustle of everyday life, girls need a chance to reconnect with the outdoors – look at the stars, tell stories around the campfire, wade through streams to see what lives there, run through open fields. Being outdoors and free to explore is a quintessential part of childhood.
She shouldn’t have to choose between STEM and fashion, archery and fishing, crafts and climbing. We know that girls have a wide variety of interests, and at Girl Scout camp, they get to try a little bit of everything.
Singing around the campfire, roasting s’mores, boating, fishing, finding constellations, riding the zip line, camp-wide games, sharing stories in the tent – Girl Scout camp is all about new experiences and lasting memories. It’s an adventure she doesn’t want to miss.
