Camping is a great way for girls to explore leadership, build skills, and develop an appreciation for nature. Whether they go for a day, week, or longer, Girl Scout camp gives girls an opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun under the guidance of caring, trained adults.

Camp is essential to our mission.  

  • Courage. Camp is a community unlike any other. Together in an unfamiliar setting, girls  find the courage within themselves to meet new people, make friends, and bond. As they  make choices and direct projects, girls learn to work well with others, become self- reliant, and develop their leadership skills.  
  • Confidence. For many girls, camp is their first experience away from parents, away  from home, and away from familiarity. Camp thus has unlimited potential to unlock or  boost a girl’s confidence.  
  • Character. Camp is the ultimate character-building experience. It is a safe place for girls  to learn individual responsibility, as they’re empowered to take care of themselves.  Though camp counselors certainly provide structure, guidance, and supervision, a girl  camper is responsible for waking herself and readying herself for the day, making her  bed, being on time to activities, and assuming responsibility for personal belongings,  often for the very first time.
