Find Her Camp

Did you know that camp is the best place for her to learn life skills?

 
Worried about your child missing out on months of valuable learning opportunities while she's not in school? If so, summer camp is the answer!

With GSNorCal's camp programs, girls experience hands-on activities that allow them to develop essential life skills, such as:

  • problem solving, as she works with her unit to prepare an outdoor cooking meal,
  • healthy risk-taking, by challenging herself on a new hike,
  • critical thinking, as she navigates the low ropes course elements,
  • and social skills by learning to live, play, and work together with her unit for the week.

Family Camp is family fun!

 
Not a Girl Scout? Not a problem! With GSNorCal's Family Camp programs, you can sign up the entire family for up to a week of camp fun.

Zip-lining, horseback riding, archery, and arts n' crafts are just a few of the activities that your family won't want to miss this summer! So whether you want to round up the whole gang for a western-themed getaway at Sugar Pine in the Sierra Nevadas (flexible reservation schedule between August 8-13) or assemble the team for an exciting outdoor adventure at Skylark Ranch along the Pacific Coast (September 1-4), there's no better way to spend your next family vacation.

Make sure to check out our Family Camps page for more information regarding prices, dates, and camp activities!
