Girl Scout Camp isn’t just a place in the woods away from it all. It’s a feeling. It’s a vibe. It’s the incandescent joy of conquering the ropes course. It’s the invigorating feeling of purposely falling out of your kayak on a hot day. And it’s the connectivity of laughing at an inside joke only your sister campers really get. It’s the chill moments around the campfire, talking or in peaceful silence.
Because we didn’t get to meet up last year, it’s time for a vibe check. Everyone back together for a summer under the sun and stars – rediscovering (or discovering for the first time) what it means to be free and alive and feeling all the camp vibes.
At Camp you’ll develop the kind of outdoor skills it’s hard to get anywhere else. Skills like taking a journey, camping out, building a campfire, cooking outdoors, pitching a tent, leave no trace camping, playing games and singing songs, or canoeing across a lake.
We are cautiously optimistic that we will be able to run a full
summer schedule in 2021. However, prospective campers should be aware
that the COVID-19 pandemic will likely have an impact on programs
offered. We may need to alter some traditions like group size, in-camp
activities, session structure, and trip length. As always, our top
priority is the health and safety of our campers, staff, and
community. We will continue to plan and prepare following national and
state guidelines, and other risk management considerations, knowing
that it is a possibility that summer camp may be canceled. We will
update families and adjust our pricing to reflect any significant
programmatic changes or cancellations that are necessary.
This summer we are hosting programs at Camp Birch Trails our overnight resident camp in Irma, Wisconsin, and Camp Winnecomac our day/short-term overnight camp in Kaukauna, Wisconsin. Please check out our other camp pages for more information. There is also a page for Camp Nesbit/Summer Thing this camp is a volunteer-run program in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Each camp page will give you information about your camper's stay -including directions to camp and packing lists as well as important information about our COVID-19 camp policies for the summer.
Hi everybody! I’m Puck and I run Girl Scout camp! I can’t wait for summer to begin. My job is to make sure camp is welcoming, fun, and a safe place for every girl who goes on an adventure with us! This is my thirtieth summer at camp! (Wow, that’s a long time!) I work with our amazing staff who are from right here in our area and from around the world to plan amazing activities perfect for girls of all ages. Though I will be living onsite at Camp Birch Trails, I am excited to welcome girls to both of our camps this summer.
