residentcamp

Camp is jam-packed with exciting and fun adventures. No matter what adventure you choose, you'll have a chance to make lasting friendships, develop new skills, learn about nature and have lots of fun in a safe environment.

Girl Scouts Camps build confidence, foster a spirit of cooperation, form an appreciation of the natural environment and develop self-esteem. We encourage campers to reach their fullest potential!
