Day Camp

Volunteer-Led Day Camps

Want to have amazing days at camp but sleep in your own bed? Day camps are planned and run by our incredible Girl Scout volunteers. You can find out more about planning and hosting your own day camp using the resources below. Share this with other local volunteers and build your own day camp planning committee. It's a great way to keep girls and volunteers in your area engaged over the summer.

All-day camp registrations are processed through the individual day camps rather than the Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania registration process. Some day camps have online registration available. Others use paper registration forms that need to be completed and sent to their specific day camp director or registrar according to the instructions on the flyer or registration form. Please note that since day camp registrations are handled by each day camp volunteer team, receipts and listings will not be available in your MyGS account.

Want to know about day camps that may be happening in your area? Check with your service unit manager or email with the subject line Day Camps and we'll put you in touch with any local day camp directors.
