Camp: An Adventure for Every Girl

With a brand new saltwater pool, bunk house, and renovated dining hall at Camp Farnsworth, it’s going to be an unforgettable summer at Girl Scout Camp! Did you know we’re also offering new themes for our general camp program? It’s all the traditional camp activities you love – like swimming and arts & crafts – plus lots of themed fun! Girls can live like pioneers in Off-the-Grid, celebrate a freakishly fun Halloween in July with Monster Mania, break out their superhero cape to save camp with Superheroes, and more.

Girl Scout Camp has an adventure for every girl. Choose yours today!
