Resident Camp Favorite
Turn your summer into the ultimate vacation getaway at Camp Favorite on beautiful Cape Cod. There’s no better place for fun in the sun. Windsurf, kayak and swim in Long Pond, or catch some waves at the beautiful ocean beaches. Our graduated sailing programs are great for beginners to advanced sailors. Back on land, you'll discover the Cape and islands as you bike the nearby Cape Cod Rail Trail. Each weekly session is unique and includes traditional camp activities like games, crafts, outdoor cooking and more. After watching a sunset from the beach or gathering around a seaside campfire you’ll agree: this is a camp experience like no other!
Camping is a great way for girls to explore leadership, build skills and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Whether you go for a day, week, or longer, Girl Scout camp gives you an opportunity to grow, explore and have fun under the guidance of caring, trained adults. Every girl deserves a chance to camp!

Typical Day at Camp

A typical day at Camp Favorite can be summed up in one word: FUN! Campers work together with help from their counselors to plan a schedule centered around their interests. You may spend half the day focusing on your program specialty and the rest of exploring other exciting activities camp offers. An emphasis on building friendships, confidence and leadership skills is incorporated into every activity. At Camp Favorite, no two days will be the same, but each day will be filled with laughter, exploration and discovery.

About the Director
Molly "Goosey" Clark can't wait to return for her second summer as camp director and her 14th summer at Camp Favorite. Molly has been a Girl Scout for 18 years, and, at the age of 11, started attending Camp Favorite, where she learned to sail and gained important life skills like confidence and independence. Her love for camp led her to become staff, and she has worked as a camp counselor, sailing instructor, sailing manager and waterfront director. Outside of camp, Molly works as an English as a Second Language teacher in Boston, teaching people from all over the world. Molly's favorite parts of camp are themed meals, sailing and eating campfire snacks. Molly is excited to return as the director and spend another fabulous summer on the Cape!
Our camps have excellent sleeping quarters that allow campers to be close to nature but still have many comforts of home. Campers live in platform tents with 2-3 other girls of their age level who are enrolled in their same program. A unit is a group of nearby tents that house all of the girls in a program and generally have between 10-20 campers. Counselors sleep in separate tents near the girls. Every unit has flush toilets and electricity. See pictures of Camp Favorite sleeping quarters (PDF).
Health & Safety
Camp Favorite is an American Camp Association accredited camp. This means that a nationally recognized organization comes in every 3 years to make sure everything we do (from the meals we serve to the programs we plan) is done in a safe way. By selecting an ACA accredited camp you can be assured your camper is safe.
Our camp is also licensed by the Brewster Board of Health. The local Board of Health has separate local and state standards of health and safety with which we comply.
What to Bring to Camp
Packing for camp can be very hard, especially if you are a first time camper. If you're wondering what you can and can not bring to camp, view a complete packing list (PDF) that will work for all our camp programs. We recommend packing in a camp trunk (less than 12" high) or a soft duffle bag that can fit under your bed. Please label EVERYTHING with your full name.
