To give your Girl Scout an idea of what to expect as summer camp, please review our 2021 camp descriptions.
4- and 6-Day Traditional Outdoor Camp sessions include archery, horseback riding, swimming, ropes (Camp Kiwanis), and more to offer girls a classic camp experience. Older girls enrolling to stay in our Blueridge Unit at Stevens Ranch will be introduced to primitive camping under the stars in our hammocks with Blueridge’s Unit Lodge used for inclement weather.
2-Day Traditional Outdoor Camp is the perfect setting for girls to try new things, develop skills in a safe and supportive environment, and challenge themselves. Daisies entering 1st grade can join us for their first resident camp-like experience in our Girl Scout Camp Progression.
