Service Unit Encampments

Bring the whole gang!

Encampments are a great way to meet and play with other Girl Scouts in your community! 

Service Unit Encampments are planned and held by Service Units for the girls and troops in their area. Encampments are held one to two times each Girl Scout year (September through May), and typically involve many troops with leaders and volunteers facilitating activities.  Contact your local Service Unit to find the date of an encampment near you.

Encampment Directors and community volunteers are essential to planning fun, safe community encampments.
