Whispering Pines

Camp Whispering Pines in Garrison is the perfect getaway in the Piney Woods of east Texas. Girl Scouts will enjoy camping in the woods, hiking winding trails and observing wildlife on the lake’s new deck. The camp is located near several east Texas attractions, such as the Texas Forestry Museum, Texas State Railroad and more.

Camp Whispering Pines is also home to the council’s family camping program, allowing registered Girl Scouts and their families to enjoy a weekend in the woods.
