Attending summer camp is a great way to build new skills, get a sense of community, and develop an appreciation for nature. Whether you go for a few days, a week, or longer Girl Scout camp gives you an opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun – all in a nurturing all-girl environment. And always under the guidance of caring, trained adults.
- Day Camp
- Girls attend day camp for one-week or, in some cases, two-week sessions. Each day is carefully planned to build on the lessons learned the previous day. Girls are placed in “units” according to their age and experience. Girls receive Red Cross swimming instruction (except at Camp Rocky Farm where girls swim in the ocean) and activities include outdoor cooking, canoeing, paddle-boating and hiking. Girls entering grades K-9 are welcome at day camp. Bus service to and from day camp is offered for just $15 for a one-week session.
Now girls can challenge themselves on a deluxe ropes challenge course located at Camp Hoffman! This spectacular course was built thanks to a grant from The Champlin Foundations.
- Overnight Camp
- Girls come to Camp Hoffman, our overnight camp, for 3-day or one-week sessions. Girls receive Red Cross swimming instruction and activities include horseback riding, rock climbing, sailing, theater, archery, surfing and kayaking. Girls dine in the spacious Barbara W. French Dining Hall. Girls entering grades 2-12 are welcome at overnight camp.
