Our Camps

Your next adventure awaits at one of our beautiful Girl Scout camp properties!

Two fun-filled resident (overnight) camp properties and one council-led day camp location:

Each camp offers unique experiences and are special places where campers can test the boundaries of their comfort zones and grow into our future leaders!

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.




When not in use by the council for scheduled programming such as summer camp, both of our resident camp properties are available for rent for all events including, but not limited to troop and service unit gatherings, company retreats, family reunions, and vacations.

Contact us for more information.

  2. Weekend Volunteers: join us Friday evening through Sunday morning to provide general support in different program areas. We would love to accommodate you if you have a specific program you’d like to support or will work with you on what your strengths and interests are.
