Volunteer Run Resident Camps

silly

These fun, enriching, local camps allow girls to extend their Girl Scout experience into the summer months and often offer leadership opportunities for older girls. These camps are planned and run by dedicated volunteers, and the day camps give girls a wonderful pathway to experience Girl Scouts! Resident camps are held at Girl Scout properties and other local community sites throughout Northern California.

Each of our Volunteer Run Camps handles registration independently. For more information about a specific camp, please contact the camp directly using the listed contact information. For any other information about Volunteer Run Camps, please contact volunteercamps@girlscoutsnorcal.org.
