Weekend Camp

Get away with your Girl Scout for a weekend of adventure at Camp Scherman! Whether she attends with her troop or you join her on a special parent-and-me getaway, she’ll have fun and develop new skills that last a lifetime.

All campers get to try their hand at favorite camp activities, including archery, canoeing, hiking, swimming, and low ropes, led by trained camp staff. Weekend campers must be accompanied by troop leaders and/or a parent for the entire weekend to meet proper adult:girl ratios.*

Weekend participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from camp.

Looking for more information? Join us for an info night! Email Erin to sign up.
