What to Expect at Camp

What to Expect at Camp

Lodging & Accommodations


Depending on the session and camp location, sleeping arrangements vary, but always include a comfortable bunk bed and protection from the elements.  Specialty outdoor adventure sessions may also include excursions with accommodation in tents. Campers are housed in groups of 4–12 campers, with staff either sleeping in the same space or in separate accommodation nearby. Wherever they lay their head, Girl Scouts camp staff will be there to ensure your camper has everything they need to get a good night’s rest.  

Bathrooms & Showers


Bathrooms and showers are located either in the same building or in a central shower house just a short walk away. All bathing facilities offer individual stalls to respect and protect campers' privacy.   

Meals & Food


Our goal is to provide nutritious, home-cooked, and delicious meals for campers and staff. Our menus include fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy or soy products, and the occasional s’more! Campers may also have the opportunity to plan and cook their own meals outdoors. Caregivers will be asked to notify camp staff at least one month prior if their camper requires vegetarian, gluten-free, lactose-free, or peanut/tree nut-free food options during their stay.

Health & Safety  


Camper health and safety is of the utmost importance to us. We work hard to ensure a quality experience for youth while following all health and safety guidelines and protocols. Camp Staff are trained in first aid, emergency procedures, risk management, homesickness, situational response, challenging conversations, and more. Read more about our healthy & safety policies
