3 Season Events

Kick off your Year at one of our 2021 Fall and Winter camping events!

Camp is a place where you unleash your inner G.I.R.L. ( Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-Taker, Leader)™ and discover that you can accomplish anything so why limit that to just the summer? Our trained and caring staff members support girls ages 5-17 in discovering who they are and who they can become. Our engaging programs and activities are designed with girls’ interests in mind, so they can grow their passions and take healthy risks in a safe, supportive environment.

When a girl enters our camps, she grows by learning new skills, engaging with other campers, and having fun. She joins over 100 years of sisterhood and tens of thousands of Girl Scouts (including many of our staff members!) who have found lasting friendships, discovered their strengths, challenged themselves, made lasting memories, and returned home with an all new love for outdoor experiences.

The Mountain Leadership Institute Session 2: Learning to Facilitate and Teach Girls is the 2nd part of our two part training is for our aspiring Girl Scouts that are interested in volunteering at camp during the school year. We have created 4 training sessions over the course of the year to help young leaders grow in 1) leading programs at camp such as arts and crafts, canoeing, outdoor skills, songs, and much more and 2) teaching these participants to teach young girls.

We will explore what makes great leaders, what skills we need, and where our own strengths and weaknesses lie. We take the time to address challenges and grow as a team. This training is designed to be a progression, and in most cases we will ask for you to attend both sessions before you are eligible to apply to be a volunteer at camp. The list below shows the courses that are offered and when. The expectation is that you would attend Session 1 and 2 and then apply to be a volunteer with us.
