Girl Scout Weekend Camps are the perfect fit!

Our Weekend Sessions of Summer Camp are the perfect fit for  Girl Scouts of all ages. We have one and two night weekend sessions for girls with little or lots of camping experience. Each Weekend Session has a unique theme and is led by trained staff and adult volunteers.

 

 

 

 

Weekend Sessions are priced between $35.00 and  $60.00  per girl. Don't forget we also offer a sibling discount for a program of equal or lesser value.   

 

 

 

 

Our weekends sessions offer
a taste of classic outdoor adventure
that is always age appropriate. Girls will enjoy outdoor cooking, competition (games), archery (8 years and older), canoeing, crafts, swimming and so much more!

 

 

 

 

8 Weekend Sessions:

June: Renaissance Weekend, Grossology, Midnight Mayhem

July: Art-Rageous, Color Wars, Frozen and Iron Chef Weekend

August: Hunger Games

I Can't Wait To...  

When you just can't wait for what you'll do next, you can do anything! At Girl Scouts, girls are always counting down to the next adventure they'll go on together. Maybe it's artistic. Maybe it's an experiment. Maybe it's getting outside or helping the community. Now you can wear your enthusiasm with our "I Can't Wait" merchandise and let the world know.  

 

A variety of ''I Can't Wait'' apparel, patches and accessories is now available at both Retail Store locations.

 

 


Let's Ban Bossy Together!

Girl Scouts of the USA is partnering with LeanIn.Org to bring you Ban Bossy, a public service campaign that helps girls flex their leadership muscles (and have fun doing it)-something we've been doing at Girl Scouts for more than a century.


Girls who take on leadership roles are too often labele
d bossy-and it's high time we put an end to this. 

Show your support with one of these Ban Bossy limited
edition items
that  you can find at both Retail Store locations. Ban Bossy merchandise is available for girls and adults.
