Give your girl a summer to remember: a summer of making new friends, swimming, kayaking, exploring nature, and meeting new challenges! Our beautiful Girl Scout camps are open to any girl, whether she's already a Girl Scout or not. Day camps in Newport, Glocester, West Kingston and Swansea, MA serve girls throughout Rhode Island, southeastern MA and beyond in grades K-12. Sign up for just a single session or string them together and spend the entire summer at Girl Scout camp! Our camp counselors are wonderful and the prices are reasonable.
A day camp "day" runs from 8:30am to 4pm. Bus service is available for a modest fee ($15/week).
Our overnight camp, Camp Hoffman in West Kingston, awaits the adventurous girl in grade 2-12 who wants to sing and sleep under the stars.

We firmly believe that every girl who wants to attend camp should attend camp, so we encourage you to consider applying for financial aid. See the Financial Aid section below for details!
Don't let anything stand in the way of a summer filled with friendship, fun and new-found confidence.
Both girls who are Girl Scout members and non-Girl Scouts are welcome to attend camp without regard to race, color, religion, national origin or socio-economic status.
Thanks to the generosity of individuals, civic organization and foundations, financial aid to attend a GSRI summer camp program – day or overnight – is available for Girl Scouts who, without this assistance, would not be able to attend Girl Scout camp. Families applying for financial aid should expect to pay as much as they possibly can.
Since our funds are allocated on a first come, first served basis, we recommend you complete and mail the 2013 Financial Aid Application and required documentation to GSRI as soon as possible.
Our mailing address is GSRI, 500 Greenwich Ave, Warwick, RI 02886. Incomplete applications will not be processed. Financial aid applications are evaluated on a rolling basis. Questions? Call us at 401.331.4500 or 800.331.0149 and ask for a camp registrar to assist you.
Day camp is offered in one-week and, 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) and activities include outdoor cooking, canoeing, paddle-boating and hiking. Girls entering grades K-9 are welcome at day camp. A day camp "day" runs from 8:30am to 4pm. Bus service to and from day camp is offered at just $15 for a one-week session.

Girls dine in the spacious Barbara W. French Dining Hall and challenge themselves on a deluxe ropes challenge course, recently installed thanks to a generous grant from The Champlin Foundations.
Girls entering grades 2-12 are welcome at Camp Hoffman.
Parents or guardians of girls with special dietary needs, mobility limitations over rough terrain, or health conditions requiring particular awareness should contact Laurie Pansa, firstname.lastname@example.org prior to registration in order to ensure that the girl can safety participate in camp activities.
