Kinds of Camping

Troop Camping

Want to camp together as a troop and have the freedom to design your own camp experience? Reserve the facilities at one of our camps and plan your own adventures! You’ll also make your own meals with the provided basic cooking equipment. Troop leaders, you’ll need Outdoor Skills Training, as well as First Aid and CPR.

Offered at: Camps Redwing, Conshatawba, Hawthorne Ridge, Skymeadow

Council-Sponsored Troop Camping

If your troop is new to camping or you just want to kick back, have fun and let us take care of the details, Council-Sponsored Troop Camping is for you! Here’s how it works: Troop leaders and troop committee volunteers sign up to attend a Core camp session with girls from their troop, and provide enough council-approved volunteers for supervision of the troop throughout the day and night and to meet our volunteer-to-girl ratio requirements. Our camp staff will provide meals and coordinate all of the activities throughout the day and evening.

Resident Camp

Girls looking for a true camp experience and a little bit of independence will love resident camp! Choose from overnights, week-long camps, or whatever your heart desires! Camp by yourself or with a buddy, and stay in one of our camps’ lodges, cabins or tent units. All programs and meals are provided; just bring yourself and your gear, and we’ll take care of the rest!
