Community Encampments

Bring the whole gang!

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

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

Encampment Directors and community volunteers are essential to planning fun, safe community encampments. Check out the information below for help planning your event:
