Girl Scout camp is a safe, fun and affordable summer option. Our exciting and creative program is for girls entering grades 1-12 (Camp Rice Moody will welcome our youngest campers with a half-day option and programs for girls entering grades K–1). Campers will have a rewarding experience whether they come for one week or all seven. Prior membership in Girl Scouting is not required.
Research shows that children who are deprived of healthy mental stimulation over the summer often lose a significant amount of what they learn during the school year. Summer camp encourages children to try new things, feel good about themselves and experience activities that they would not normally be offered, such as sailing, creative arts, horseback riding, drama, and ropes courses team activities.
With camp locations from the woods of New Hampshire to the seacoast of Cape Cod, our summer programs offer something for every girl. Not sure which camp is right for your girl? Check out our camps at-a-glance.

Year-Round Outdoor Program
Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts' Outdoor Program department creates a year-round journey to camp through the Camp Pathway. Girls do more than enjoy activities at camp, they join a caring community. Through the Camp Pathway, girls learn skills to resolve conflict, accept differences, get along with other and work together. The atmosphere of acceptance and sharing at camp prompts girls to try out new positive behaviors.
