Summer 2021 Expeditions
Expeditions are traveling summer experiences, hosted by GSHCC staff and our Outdoor Program Partners. Exclusively for older girls, these programs combine adventure, service and leadership–resulting in lifelong memories. Our expeditions combine exciting adventure opportunities, traditional camping elements and community service.
Don’t wait to register, registration closes as soon as May 11th for some expeditions!
Camping isn’t just for the summer anymore. Outdoor experiences provide challenges and enhance leadership skills while exploring nature that inspire girls’ curiosity, discovery and problem solving. We offer a variety of weekend events throughout the year for girls, troops, groups and families.
Come meet the GSHCC horses and experience something new. We offer weekend programs during the school year for girls and troops and horseback riding and horse-themed camps at our resident camp, Camp Menzies, during the summer.
Family camps are opportunities for Girl Scouts and their families to
have an outdoor camp experience together!

Girl Scout Ranger Program
The National Park Service and Girl Scouts of the United States of America have partnered to create the Girl Scout Ranger Program. 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.
