More than a get-away, summer camp is a place where campers explore the outdoors, try new activities, practice independence away from home, learn to work with others, make new friends, and so much more.
Girl Scout Camp combines classic camp activities, including kayaking, horseback riding, ziplining, and campfires, with unique Girl Scout traditions of camp songs and games.
Whether campers attend camp daily or spend a whole week away from home, they’ll discover, connect, and take action on issues and challenges that are important to them.
At Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council camps, we give girls a chance to discover more about who they are and what they can become. Each child is a unique individual and we believe that summer camp is beneficial for all girls.
Our friendly and caring staff will help guide your camper through our progression programs. Our camps are designed with every girls’ interest in mind. We encourage girls to take healthy risks and experience new things as they build essential life skills, such as:
Not a Girl Scout? Not a problem! Joining Girl Scouts is easy, and you can just go to camp—no troop required!
Overnight camping and day camp: Whether she is a first-time camper or an experienced adventurer, an outdoor enthusiast or a creative artist, your camper will find her perfect program at one of our overnight camps or at one of our many day camps. Overnight sessions at Camp Agnes Arnold, Casa Mare, and Misty Meadows Ranch range from 3-13 days. Day camp sessions are at Program Place for Girls.
All GSSJC girl members may apply for financial assistance to attend summer overnight and day camp. Applicants are required to pay the $50 deposit when applying for a campership unless applying for a full campership. Camperships cover the cost of the camp session only and do not include camp packs.
Camperships are need-based awards limited to one overnight camp session or two day-camp sessions per girl, per summer. A 2022-2023 GSUSA membership and participation in one or both product programs for the current membership year is required.
Requests for camperships are due by April 15. Requests received after that date will be reviewed only if funds are available. A committee of volunteers will review your completed application, and you will receive a notification from the committee with the approval amount or non-approval via letter. Data may be used for grant reporting with any personal information omitted.
Awards are based on multiple criteria and may not be awarded right away. Processing campership requests can take several weeks.
How to apply for campership:
2. Complete the Campership application. All information must be completed, and the parent/guardian must sign the form before applications will be reviewed.
