Day Camp

Girls Scouts day camp is a great way to introduce girls to the outdoors–our programs are full of sun, fun, and friends!  With nine weeks of summer day camp programs to choose from at a variety of locations, girls are sure to find a camp that’s just the right fit!

Day camp gives her the chance to try something different, face new challenges, and meet other girls who share her passions.  Girls learn songs, play games, make arts and crafts, and gain outdoor skills and badges, all while being encouraged to feel comfortable and be their awesome selves. Her summer adventure should definitely include Girl Scout day camp!

Registration now open!
