Summer resident camp registration opens February 1, 2017!
Girls sing songs like rock stars by the campfire, hike in the
mountains, and channel their inner-outdoor adventurer when attending
Girl Scout summer resident camp.
Whether she’s looking for a week of adventure or a day of exploring,
we’ve got you covered. Horseback riding, hiking, learning to geocache,
crafting, hiking, and much, much more – there is something that shows
every girl she can shine.
Our council has two fun-filled summer resident camp properties:
- Camp Elliott Barker in Angel Fire
- Rancho del
Chaparral in Cuba, NM
Each camp offers unique experiences and are special places where
girls create memories that will last a lifetime.
Girl Scout Camp is not only about gaining outdoor skills and
friendships - it’s about helping girls discover who they are and
exploring the world around them. At camp girls realize that anything
is possible…and that their next great adventure is just around the corner.
Resident camp is an overnight camping experience where ALL GIRLS can
explore the out-of-doors with trained camp counselors. Resident camp
sessions typically last about one week and are held in June and July
each year at Camp Elliott Barker and Rancho del Chaparral.
NEW this year: badges earned at each resident camp session,
improved horse camp programs offered by grade level, AND new programs
offered at each camper grade level! Troop Campers will be able to
choose between: "Bring Your Own Program" or "Choose
Your Adventure" for SIX different Troop Camp weeks. Family Camps
will be offered at both camps and include the new "Sister/Buddy Weekend!"
Programs are categorized as: Traditional, Science & Nature,
Specialty, Adventure, or Leadership.
