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 3-14 days. Day camp sessions are at Program Place for Girls and Katy Mills Mall.
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 2023-2024 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 while in the application process. All information must be completed. The parent/guardian must sign the form before applications are reviewed.

Registration fees include the camp session activities, a camp T-shirt, a summer camp patch, and a $10 trading post allowance (overnight campers only).
A $50 deposit per camper, per session is required for all registrations. Automated payment plans and incremental payments are accessible in UltraCamp. Payment in full for each session is due four (4) weeks prior to the start of the session.
Camp pack fees and the deposit will be due upon initial registration. After the due date, GSSJC reserves the right to cancel an unpaid camper from the session. Deposits are non-refundable.
If you cancel in writing more than four weeks before the start date of the camp session, a full refund of all camp fees paid, minus the $50 non-refundable deposit, will be made. The $50 deposit and any other payments made on the canceled session may be transferred to another 2024 council camp session until four weeks before the start of the canceled session. Changes and cancellations made less than four weeks before the camp session’s start date are non-refundable and non-transferrable, including changes made due to a camper’s inability to meet a stated prerequisite skill.
All overnight campers must have a physical done by a licensed physician, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner within 12 months of their camp session. This does not apply for day-only camp.
All day and overnight campers must fill out the online health forms via UltraCamp. Families may log on after registration and begin completing their forms as soon as registration is complete.
