Exploring nature provides challenges and enhances leadership skills.
Camping inspires girls' curiosity, discovery and problem solving.
Learning to sail, conquering a high-ropes course and making a fire for
s'mores all require courage and teamwork. Learn more about all of our
different ways to camp below.
Send your girl on an adventure she will remember for the rest of her
life! From zipping through the trees to canoeing on the lake, girls
grow more comfortable and confident in an outdoor setting each day.
Our Resident Camps are safe, hands-on and rich with Girl Scout tradition.
The Camp Experience During their Resident Camp
experience, campers unleash their inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter,
Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) as they explore a wide range of activities.
Morning sessions follow breakfast and include activities dependent
on a camper’s age, like taking aim at the archery range, paddling on
the lake in a canoe or learning about local flora and fauna on a hike.
Girls make individualized decisions on what activities they want to
do, with some choices designed specifically for older girls, during
option and free-choice periods.
Girls enjoy lunch and rest time before setting off on afternoon
adventures, which include playing GaGa ball or a camper
favorite—tie-dyeing! Campers swim daily and have access to the popular
Snack Shack and Trading Post.
Campers spend the evenings bonding at all-camp activities before
drifting off to sleep.

Troop Camp Training
At Troop Camp, girls come together and explore the outdoors, develop
leadership skills and make memories with their friends. Adults who
want to make this opportunity possible for girls can gain the
necessary skills at Girl Scout Troop Camp trainings.
Troops that wish to camp on or off Council-owned property must have
a volunteer with a Licensed Troop Camp Certification to accompany them.
If your troop does not have a Licensed Troop Camp Certified Adult
you can check with your Camp Promoter for names of adults who are
willing to accompany your troop camping, serving as the certified
adult for the troop to camp.
To learn more about Troop Camp training opportunities, check out
& Learn publication for a list of upcoming
opportunities. The infographic below explains the different troop camp
training options available to volunteers.

training contact the Answer Center at 314.400.4600.

Is your girl ready to roast marshmallows over an open fire, sing
songs, play games and get creative with arts and crafts? Does she want
to learn knot-tying skills, tips for sustaining the environment and
how to cook outside? If so, her summer adventure should include Girl
Scout Day Camp!
Girls who are at least five years old and entering kindergarten
through 8th grade for the 2019-2020 school year are eligible to participate.
Volunteer at Day Camp All Day Camps are planned and

for half price, and the Day Camp can accommodate more girls. When you
