Camp Properties

What’s great about Girl Scout camp? Everything! Girl Scout camp is a place where girls are encouraged to discover new things and learn new skills. Breathing fresh air, exploring new challenges, participating in fun activities and learning to work with girls from different places and varied backgrounds are all great reasons to camp.

Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council offers many opportunities for girls to enjoy camping. Each camp has a unique outdoor setting and has been developed with a particular type of camping and set of activities in mind. At camp, girls can pedal down a scenic path on a bicycle, paddle a canoe around an island, rig a sailboat, go swimming or ride a horse down a winding trail. Girl Scout camp is an experience that puts girls in the outdoors away from the noise and distractions of the city.

Agnes Arnold

Shadow Lake is the main attraction at Camp Agnes Arnold, located near Conroe, 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, and troops can sign up for the popular weekend hikes led by certified foresters and earn a special patch for their participation.
