Camping

Taking Leadership to the Outdoors

Camping is a great way for girls to explore leadership, build skills, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Whether they go for a day, week, or longer, Girl Scout camp gives girls an opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun under the guidance of caring, trained adults. Every girl deserves a chance to camp! And if girls love the outdoors, make sure they check out the Girl Scout It's Your Planet—Love It! Journey series.
