Make the Most of Your Summer at Camp!

We canʼt believe itʼs already the end of the school year. Do you have plans for summer yet? If not, weʼve got you covered! Donʼt stay home and be bored - we have lots of options for day and overnight camps. Theyʼre a great way to meet new friends, learn something new and possibly even earn a new badge.

Camp Menzies is our overnight camp in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, with sessions ranging from 4-8 days. Thereʼs something for everyone entering grades 2-12, with themes ranging from outdoor activities and sports to jewelry making and art. You can learn survival skills, explore San Francisco or Tahoe, or help build a cabin. Click here to see all the sessions and register now. Questions about camp? We have lots of info on our Web site, from financial aid to preparing for camp. Check it out!

There are also 2 short-term residence camps where Girl Scouts camp at an established site:

  • Camp Golden Timbers in Tuolumne County (July 25-28)
  • Yosemite Camp of Service in Yosemite National Park (August 4-7)

Or if you want a shorter commitment closer to home, there are many day camps all the way from Marysville to Merced.

Click here to find out more about the themes, locations and dates for all 19 day camps. You can even bring a friend - girls who aren’t in Girl Scouts can attend, they just need to pay an additional $12 membership fee.

Older Girl Scouts can volunteer at day camps or apply for a job at Camp Menzies. If youʼre a Girl Scout in high school, check out our leadership programs too.
