Our Camps

There is plenty of research to show that spending time in nature can nurture creativity and healthy social development, and help girls gain the skills to seek and conquer challenges. At resident camp, girls have the opportunity to discover and connect with the natural world, and learn how to take action like a G.I.R.L.! Whether in a tent or a cabin, with council staff or fantastic volunteers, a summer of adventure awaits.

Girl Scouts are invited to participate in a variety of existing, organized educational or service projects at national park sites, or design their own experience or project to align with Journey work badge activities, or a Take Action or Highest Award project. Girl Scouts are awarded certificates and/or patches for their participation.
