Summer Camp 2021: Registration opens at noon on February 25

At Girl Scouts, girls find a safe space where they are free to be themselves, giving her a summer home away from home! Many Girl Scouts report that camp was one of the best things about their Girl Scout experience. Camping is a great way for girls to explore leadership, build skills, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Whether for a day, a week, or longer, Girl Scout camp gives girls an opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun in a supporting all-girl, girl-led envorionment. 

The safety of our campers, staff and volunteers is, and always will be, paramount. For more information regarding how we will work together to keep our community healthy in an COVID-19 environment, please see our most frequently asked camp questions (FAQs) on page 5 of this year's Summer Camp (found above), as well as related FAQs can be found here

We can't wait to see your girl at camp this year!
