Camp Life

Welcome to Girl Scout Resident Camp! At our three unique resident camps, girls get to pick sessions that best suits their needs and interests—we have a little something for everyone, including sailing, canoeing, horseback riding, art, outdoor survival, drama, and everything in between! If this is your first time to go to camp, or if you’re looking for something new, we suggest you check out all three of our camps and take a look at the sessions—you’re sure to find a session or two you’ll love!

Each session description lists the major activities that your camper will participate in. Your camper will also visit the pool each day, Monday through Thursday. Once at camp, campers will get to pick from several traditional and fun camp activities to round out their camp experience. Depending on the camp, these could include archery, crafts, games, dance, theater, canoeing, hiking, nature exploration, painting, and more. Sometimes the camp staff can offer other specialized activities like sign language or pottery, based on the talents of our camp staff.

Fridays are reserved as FUN FRIDAY! Special activities take place on Fun Friday, including a chance for campers to try activities that they might not have been able to sign up for or that they did not realize they wanted to try until they saw their friends having fun. Unfortunately, sailing at Camp Casa Mare and horseback riding at Camp Misty Meadows are only for those who sign up for a sailing or riding session.
