Girl Scout Camp

Camping is an important part of the Girl Scout tradition and an important program pathway for Girl Scouts of Alaska. Outdoor education and the learning and independence gained at camp contribute very positively to the Girl Scout experience for many girls. For some Girl Scouts, camp is their once a year pathway to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.

“Camp” is not dependent on location, specific activities, or even time of year. Camp is about being away from home. It’s the experiences — learning independence, identifying one's own strengths through safe challenges, gaining new healthy role models through camp staff, and making new friends. At Girl Scout camp, girls discover, connect, and take action, building their way to being girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.

Camp can be a powerful time in a child’s life when she builds new insights into herself, others, and the world. Camp is a time when we learn that life is about change and, though at times daunting, it’s always an adventure that will make us stronger.
