About This Organizer



Girl Scout camp is where your girl shines. She grows into a leader while experiencing the best parts of being a kid: playing (and learning) in groups where everyone belongs, trying tons of new things, and exploring the natural world, always in a safe and fun setting. And that rules!


At camp, your girl can be a scientist, archer, actor, environmentalist, cowgirl, artist or adventurer. If she thinks swimming rules, or knitting, or astronomy, she's free to try it at camp. Plus, she makes friends with girls her age who let her know that she rules, too.


If your camper's not yet a Girl Scout, no problem! Any girl entering grades K-12 can attend; non-members just add $15 to regular camp fees to cover the annual cost of membership. Learn more about Girl Scouts San Diego
