Girl Scout Camp Opportunities

Day camp is for Girl Scouts in kindergarten and up, with activities on three or more consecutive days for four hours or more. The occasional overnight camp may be offered.

Weekend camp is for Girl Scouts in kindergarten and up, and typically lasts for two days and one overnight. Weekend camps are planned and carried out by a group of Girl Scouts and volunteers, using council-approved campsites.

Travel camping is for experienced campers. The group travels from one site to another on foot or via motorized or non-motorized transportation over a period of three or more nights, staying at different campsites along the way.

Resident camp is for Girl Scouts who have finished kindergarten. Girl Scouts camp for three to fourteen days and nights (the average is five nights). They plan activities with their counselors and volunteers, using resources available at the campsite.

Family camp is for Girl Scouts in kindergarten and up. A Girl Scout and her family can stay at the camp for a weekend of outdoor fun, where everyone can bond over something new.

Virtual camp is for Girl Scouts in kindergarten and up and is a great way for them to try camp-related activities or experience a camp anywhere in the country without leaving home.
