What's This All About? 

In 2015, Girl Scouts of West Central Florida began conducting a multi-year, council-wide strategic visioning process for our outdoor program and properties. Through this long range program and properties planning initiative, known as Her Vision of Tomorrow, we have developed a property vision that promotes the mission of Girl Scouts with engaging and vital program delivery that will best use our properties to meet the program needs of today's (and tomorrow's) girls.

The process began with a dynamic 39-person Task Force – consisting of community experts, volunteers, board members and staff – who worked to conduct a thorough review of our programs and properties per a nationally recommended process. Utilizing surveys for girls, volunteers and families, outside independent research, planning experts, town halls, webinars, data collection by the task force, as well as a variety of other data points and analyses all helped to inform and build our path to the future.

If you want to learn more about this process, the links at the bottom of this page give you the full view of the process from the very begining to where we are today. You'll find presentations, data, webinars, updates and more.

If you ever have any questions about Her Vision of Tomorrow, please contact us at  future@gswcf.org.

Help us name our new cabins at Camp Wai Lani and Camp Wildwood.

We have begun construction of new units at both Camp Wai Lani and Camp Wildwood. These brand new units will each have 3 cabins that sleep up to 16 campers. That’s 48 more beds at both locations! And they have been designed to incorporate the feedback we received from girls during the early planning stages. The elevated cabins have screened in activity space below with covered staircases on either side to access the cabin. The interior will have 8 bunk beds with space for gathering in the middle, sliding barn doors to access the bathroom and private changing areas in the showers.

Now for the fun part! We’re looking for our girls and volunteers to help us name the new units. We do have some general naming guidelines noted below so the new names sound right at home with the current units and the overall personality of each camp.

You can submit as many names as you’d like before the March 24 deadline. We will take all submissions and narrow it down to the top picks for the members to vote on.

We look forward to your ideas and can’t wait to see you in our new cabins!

Camp Wai Lani submission guidelines

In keeping with the camp tradition, the units will have Polynesian names. Wai Lani roughly translates to “Water Paradise” and there is a strong nautical theme running through all of the names. You can either submit names in English for us to translate, or can submit them already translated. To get an idea of what we already have at camp, here are our current units and their roughly translated meanings:

  • He’e Nalu “Surf Rider”
  • Kai Lua “Salt Water Sea”
  • Lani Kai “Heavenly Sea”

Camp Wildwood submission guidelines

Known as our premier equestrian camp, Wildwood is our largest property and also home to our world class Griffin Nature Center. The current nature-themed cabin names reflect this old Florida wilderness vibe and the new units will offer a beautiful view of Lake Lenore. Here are our current units:

  • Cricket
  • Friendship
  • Gator
  • Homestead
  • Horseshoe Meadows
  • Oak Hammock

Use our submission form and send us your naming ideas today.
