Girl Scout Camp is the place where girls are encouraged to explore their curiosity! In an environment created just for her, Girl Scouts learn real-life skills, develop self-esteem and gain a sense of independence and community.
Every camp experience is unique, and girls are encouraged to make their own path at Girl Scout Camp. Whether your Girl Scout is a first-time weekend camper or interested in a leadership position, her individual interests are celebrated and nurtured as she selects from a variety of opportunities each day. When a Girl Scout embraces the camp life, she truly has a transformative experience. Our Resident Camps are overnight experiences ranging from a few days to a few weeks in length that offer girls traditional and specialty options like Camp STEM Voyager and Cedarledge Curtain Call.
