All Girls Welcome 

In Girl Scouts we embrace the individuality of every girl and know that for each girl, her camp experience will be uniquely hers. Our camp programs are designed to offer variety, flexibility, and fun no matter her interests. Whether she is exploring the night sky, creating a masterpiece, or challenging herself on a daring adventure, our camp sessions promise an adventure for every girl. Camp is more than a canoeing adventure or a week of art exploration; it builds confidence and independence and girls achieve a greater sense of self.

Girl planning

Girl Scouts is girl-led, allowing girls to put their own stamp on camp! Each session described in our camp guide provides an idea of what activities will be included at camp; however, girl input helps determine what activities actually happen. When the girls help make program decisions, they are discovering their interests, trying new things, and engaging in cooperative team-building.

Signing up for Camp

Registration is open. Caregivers must register their Girl Scouts for these sessions. Troop Leaders are not able to register troop members for resident or day camp sessions; however, troop leaders may register their troop members for troop camp opportunities, such as Outdoor Extravaganza and Weekend in the Woods. Registrations cannot be accepted over the phone.

The Camp Guide and camp registration will be available in early 2018.

Payment & Cookie Dough

Programs that are $100 or less require payment in full at the time of registration. For programs that are over $100, or if you are requesting financial assistance, a $50 deposit must be included with registration. Camp is a great way to spend Cookie Dough! If you would like to use Cookie Dough but do not receive it by the time you register for camp, all required deposits and fees must be paid; after your Cookie Dough is received you may apply it to camp fees by calling 888.747.6945. If the amount of Cookie Dough used plus the amount of your deposit exceeds the total cost of your camp fees, you will receive a refund for the overage. Due to the volume of these requests, it may take up to four weeks to receive your refund.
