Join us in planning ahead for a great summer at Camp Farnsworth! Programs from four days to two weeks are available for Girl Scouts who have completed grades 1–11. Programs are age dependent. Overnight campers love singing around the campfire and making new friends! You might swim in the pool or canoe in the lake. Share your meals together in the dining hall and play games on the lawn. What specialty would you like to explore? Do you have an eagle eye? Archery may be the sport for you! Artists can stretch their creative minds! Girl Scouts in grades 9 and up can choose to focus on simply enjoying summer camp or take on leadership opportunities like Camp Aide or Counselor in Training (CIT). New this year for older campers, try out our Program Interns experience where you will gain more knowledge about program areas around camp.
For over a century, Camp Farnsworth has been a place where campers have come to build lasting friendships, develop confidence and independence, and experience the thrill of the outdoors.

Camp Program Aide
Gain valuable leadership experience and have fun at this camp 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. In between, you’ll get to enjoy camp program areas as a unit.
Counselor in Training (CIT)
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.
The next year, refine your skills by observing and assisting experienced staff, and then be fully immersed in working with an assigned camper group.
Interested in one of these leadership programs?
Register for either program through your favorite camp; space is limited in these programs. To complete registration for the CIT program, girls will be sent an application and reference form, and take part in an interview before camp begins.
In order to ensure all girls can benefit from a great camp experience, the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains makes financial aid available for all girls living within our council jurisdiction. Financial aid for camp can be requested through our online registration system, by selecting Financial Aid at checkout. To learn more about financial aid, visit our Financial Assistance page.
Our camp offers a variety of sleeping quarters that allow campers to be close to nature but still have some of the comforts of home. Depending on their program/session, campers may stay in small or large cabins, treehouses, tentalows, or canvas tents on platforms. All units include beds and mattresses, storage shelves, and have fire circles for campfires and s'mores. Camp counselors stay close by in tents or small cabins of their own. All units have nearby bathrooms and access to two central shower houses.
Camp Farnsworth is located in Thetford, VT on over 240 acres of beautiful, tranquil forest, meadows, fields and a 50-acre lake. Our property includes playing fields, lakefront, rec hall, health center, woodworking shop, pottery building, arts & crafts center, challenge course, climbing tower, a dining hall, and our pool, and bunkhouse.
