Camp Life Is The BEST Life!


Our Camps

Girl Scout camp provides girls with an opportunity to try new and exciting experiences, explore the wonders of nature, enjoy traditional camp activities and adventures, and create cherished memories that will last a lifetime.

What makes our camps so special? Girl Scout camp is unique in that it is girl-led. Guided by staff, girls of every age are involved in planning, organizing, and evaluating their camp activities. Girls are empowered as they learn and practice creative thinking, leadership, and decision-making skills.

Our camp programs are open to all girls entering kindergarten through grade 12—including those who have never participated in Girl Scouts. We offer both day and resident (overnight) camp programs at five locations.


Camp Staff
Camp Staff

Our summer staff are recruited from around the world. They are college students, mothers, teachers and others who enjoy working with children. They all complete an application and interview, provide references, and undergo a formal background check. All staff complete an intensive pre-camp training orientation before campers arrive. There are 2 counselors for every 12 girls at day camp and 2 counselors for every 10 girls at resident camp.

Barn Program Aide and Camp Program Aide
Gain valuable experience and have fun at this volunteer work program that expands on your Program Aide training. Camp Program Aides assist in all areas of camp—waterfront, adventure, office, kitchen, crafts, and in units – while Barn Program Aides also aide in barn programs. In between, you’ll get to enjoy camp program areas as a unit. 

Counselor in Training (CIT) and Barn Leader in Training (BLIT)
This two-year training program provides you with skills and knowledge you’ll need to become a successful camp staff member. In your first year, spend four weeks brushing up on your camp skills, practicing new leadership skills, and gaining valuable experience working with campers. BLITs additionally spend time at the barn, and must have documented riding/horse care experience. 

The next year, refine your skills by observing and assisting experienced staff, and then be fully immersed in working with an assigned camper group. BLITs can expect to also instruct groups at the barn in lessons and horse care.
