Register Now for Summer Camp!

Get ready for fun, friends and adventure this summer! All of our summer programs are listed on our online calendar and you can register for camp, badge workshops, events and more! You can also click on the links in the Outdoor Program Guide below to register for 2022 Summer Camp sessions.

Our friendly and caring staff will help guide your girl through our programs, as well as encourage her to experience new things that help build essential life skills, including:

  • interpersonal and social skills.
  • teamwork and conflict resolution.
  • critical thinking and problem solving.
  • confidence and independence.

Summer Camp is for all girls in grades 1-12. You do not have to be a current Girl Scout to have an amazing summer at camp! We offer day camp, week-long and half-week resident camps, horse camps and leadership programs that allow girls to grow leadership skills at camp as they guide younger girls!

NEW THIS YEAR: Camp Ginger Cascades is offering adventure-based sessions for troops this summer! They are also taking reservations for Service unit and troop camp rentals. Have you ever wanted to take your troop camping during the summer, but didn’t have a facility to use? Camp Ginger Cascades is going to be open all summer long for troops and service units to reserve different lodging options and give their girls their very own camp experience.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Each year, we offer financial assistance (called a Campership) to girls who need help paying for summer camp. The deadline to apply for a 2022 Campership has passed.

Summer Camp FAQs

What will my camper eat while at camp? 
We provide well balanced, kid-friendly meals three times a day and always have snacks should a camper need one in between meals.

What if my camper has dietary restrictions?
When you are registering your camper for camp, make sure that you note any dietary restrictions and food allergies in the registration form. We often have campers who are vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, lactose intolerant and much more. We always make sure to have food that suits every camper and staff's needs.

How should I prepare my camper for their first week of camp?
Talk about and practice self-care. Examples of this would be taking a shower by themselves, brushing their teeth, brushing their hair, putting on deodorant, etc. 

What happens if my camper has lice?
At check-in, your camper will be screened for lice/nits. Campers will not be allowed to stay if they have lice/nits and parents/guardians are responsible for treatments. No refunds are given for lice/nits. Girls may return to camp after receiving treatment at home and, if found to be lice/nit free, may then join camp.

Can I call my camper while they are at camp?
Campers are not allowed to receive or make phone calls while at camp. If there is a problem or if your camper is not adjusting well, a camp counselor will contact you.

Where can I send mail to my camper?
You can send mail to your camper to their camp location! Please be sure to address the mail as below so that it is easier for us to get mail to your camper:
Camper Name
Camper Program (i.e. Llama Trek)
The Camp's Address
City, State and Zip Code

Camp addresses can be found here. 

You can also drop mail off at check-in so your camper receives a letter in the first few days. If campers would like to send letters home while they are at camp, we suggest you send her with pre-stamped and addressed stationary.

Do you provide transportation to camp?
No- transportation to camp in summer 2022 will not be provided. 

What should my camper pack?
A packing list for resident campers will be provided in our 2022 camper packet (e-mailed out to all campers). For day campers, we ask that they bring a swimsuit, towel, sunscreen and water bottle with them every day.

Does my camper have to be a Girl Scout to attend camp?
You do not have to be a currently registered Girl Scout to participate in our programs. However, non-registered girls will be registered as Girl Scouts for $25. Registering as a Girl Scout means you will have access to all of the programs offered throughout the year, and you will be the first to hear about camp next year.

Do you provide scholarships for camp?
We want every girl to be able to attend camp regardless of their financial situation. Please note: The deadline to apply for a 2022 Campership has passed.

Do you provide any discounts for camp?

  • Early registrations (received or post marked by February 28, 2022) will receive a $50 discount per week long or longer resident camp sessions.
  • Cookie Dough, Daisy Dollars and Nut Bucks may be used to help pay for day or resident camp programs.

What is the cancellation policy for camp or other Girl Scout programs?Please contact us at or 800-672-2148 for questions about the cancellation policy. 

Can my camper bring a friend to camp?
Girls will have many opportunities to make new friends during their time at camp and coming on their own is always an exciting adventure. However, some girls prefer to attend with a close friend. Two girls wishing to attend camp as buddies must provide that information in their registration. Space is provided to indicate one friend’s name, and both buddies must request each other. We cannot accommodate more than one buddy combination per girl. Cabin/tent assignments will be honored for one buddy only.

What activities can my camper participate in?
Each camp has various activities that girls can participate in. Most of these include the climbing wall, archery, boating (canoeing, kayaking or paddle boating), hiking, arts and crafts, daily swimming (weather dependent), outdoor cooking, team building activities, Congdon Adventure Park (Keyauwee Program Center only) and many more!

What if my camper doesn't feel well while at camp?
They will see our health supervisor to determine what the issue may be. If the issue persists, a member of the camp team will call the family to let them know what is happening and to decide the best course of action.

What if my camper takes medication?
We have a health supervisor who will dispense medication to campers according to the labeled directions unless we receive a note from your physician. All medications must be in its original packaging. This includes all over-the-counter medications, vitamins and topical creams.

Can my Girl Scout use Cookie Dough, Daisy Dollars or Nut Bucks to pay for camp?
Yes, we have a form that you can fill out to pay for camp using these P2P monies. 

What do I do if there are no spots available in my preferred program?
You can join the waitlist for your preferred program at no cost! We recommend registering for your second choice program, just in case no spots become available in the preferred program. If a spot becomes available, we will reach out to members of the waitlist in the order they registered, and we can transfer payment over to the preferred program.

How are camp staff trained?
Staff go through 14 days of staff training. Our staff are trained and certified in all of our activities and on any and all topics that may arise during camp, such as senstitive issues, homesickness, etc.

What should I do if I need to pick up my camper early?
If you need to pick-up your camper early, this is not a problem. Please let camp staff know during check-in.
