Camp Properties


Shadow Lake, locate near Lake Conroe, is the main attraction at Camp Agnes Arnold, offering 35 acres of cool, refreshing fun for Girl Scouts. While camping, girls may enjoy canoeing and fishing on Shadow Lake, swimming at the pool, taking a walk down the Peace Pole trail, archery on the range overlooking the lake, or borrowing a bike to pedal through camp. The Nature Center hosts many displays on local plants and animals and includes classroom spaces for Girl Scouts to use. Adjacent to the Nature Center is a bird blind where girls can observe wildlife on Shadow Lake. Camp Arnold is also home to extensive hiking trails. Troops can sign up for the popular weekend hikes led by certified foresters and earn a special patch for their participation.

Camp Arnold is also home to the council’s Adventure Course,  an arial ropes course which allows girls to team build with the low elements and climb a rock wall or cargo net, fly down a zip line or take a leap from the power pole.

Accommodations at Camp Arnold include platform tents, cabins, treehouse cabins, and the Fishing Village located right at the edge of Shadow Lake. The camp also features the Ann Temple Allen Lodge, a library, several classrooms, and an infirmary, all of which are air-conditioned. Camp Agnes Arnold is located adjacent to Misty Meadows Ranch and Camp Silver Springs in the Treelake complex.


Misty Meadows Ranch is recognized as one of  2023's Best Summer Camps in the United Sates by Newsweek!

Horseback riding is the main attraction at Misty Meadows Ranch located near Conroe. The McNair Equestrian Center is home to our herd of 40 horses. Girl Scouts can attend the popular “Love, Hug and Groom” program, sign up to ride horses, or simply watch the horses as they play and graze in the camp’s extensive pastures. Girls may also enjoy activities at the camp’s archery and rifle ranges or swim at the camp’s pool. Girls can also interact with the animals at camp, including goats and chickens.

During the summer months, Misty Meadows Ranch is home one of GSSJC’s three overnight camp programs.

Accommodations at Misty Meadows Ranch are dormitories and screened-in cabins, and the camp is also home to a new infirmary, a covered pavilion and the air-conditioned Wortham Lodge that houses a stage and classrooms.
