Camp: Adventure Begins Here!

Girl Scout camp is a special place where every girl can practice independence, make friends, learn new skills, problem solve, and have fun in an all-girl environment! Our life-changing camp experiences are open to ALL girls entering 1st–12th grades.

Attend as an individual: She doesn't need to attend camp with her troop. Many girls visit camp on their own and make new friends. 

Grab a buddy, be a pair: Girls can bring a buddy from their troop or a friend who is not yet a Girl Scout. Buddies are placed together according to program session, age, and Girl Scout level.

Not yet registered as a Girl Scout? Not a problem! Sign up today and join us at camp to see what Girl Scouting is all about.


Camp provides the perfect setting for girls to try new things and develop skills in a safe and supportive environment. View the Outdoor Progression Chart and visit GSUSA's Badge Explorer to see how girls benefit from camp experiences.
