Troop Camping

Are you ready for an in-tents way to spend time with your troop? Plan a weekend at one of our camp properties!

Troop Camping is a great way for your girls to explore leadership, build skills, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Our Girl Scout camps give girls (and volunteers!) an opportunity to grow, explore, and have adventures. Troop camping is a year-round camping experience, planned and carried out by a group of girls and their leaders at a council property or council-approved site.   

Fall Troop Camping reservations open June 4 at 9 a.m. You'll be able to view the fall 2019 troop camping calendar from September through December* and make your reservations. Please note the 19-20 calendar will display as unavailable until June 4. 

*As noted in the recent webinar, reservations for camping from January - May 2020 will open in October. Look for more information on in the monthly eNewswletters this summer.


As noted earlier last year with the launch of Encampment Reservations, we have made some changes to our pricing model for the first time in a decade. For more information on the price increase, please see our FAQ.
