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.
See you back at camp in 2024!
Watch for the 2024 digital camp guide to be released here on Wednesday, November 29th, at 10:00 AM CST.
Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes is proud to be part of an organization committed to diversity and inclusion since its founding in 1912. Our unwavering commitment is to breaking down barriers and forging partnerships with families and communities to support the well-being and development of all. We strive to create spaces that ensure all members, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender expression, socioeconomic status, national origin, or physical, social, or emotional ability, can embark on a transformative journey where they can develop the courage, confidence, and character to make the world a better place. At GSNWGL, we hold all our staff accountable for their commitment to continuous learning and the active implementation of our IDEA/ RJ initiatives (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Access & Racial Justice).
Camp is a world away (from technology, that is).
Camp is intentionally technology-free to create an environment where campers can fully immerse themselves in the wonders of nature and build lasting connections with their fellow campers. This break from screens fosters social interaction, encourages physical activity, and allows campers to disconnect from the digital world and reconnect with the simplicity and richness of the great outdoors. Campers are not allowed to bring phones, tablets, smartwatches, headphones, or similar devices. We know it’s tough. Releasing your camper into the wild (and our expert care) is new for some folks, but know your camper is safe and having a great time.
Financial Assistance is available so that Girl Scout camp is a reality for every camper. The minimum deposit is required to secure your spot for each session. If you cannot afford the deposit, call us. No camper will be turned away.
All payments and financial assistance must be applied three weeks before arrival at camp. Otherwise, your camper’s session will be canceled.
Every Girl Scout deserves to experience camp, but many families struggle to pay for camp. That’s where you come in! Give the gift of camp. Whether $10 or $1,000, your campership investment makes camp dreams a reality. Caregivers can donate in gsEvents when registering their camper or donate anytime by visiting gsnwgl.org/donate. Thank you for making Girl Scout summer adventures happen!
