Volunteer-Run Camps

With both day camp and overnight camp options, our volunteer-run camps offer girls enriching summer programs and quality camp experiences—just like our council-run camps. Overnight camps take place on GSNorCal properties, but many of the day camps are located across Northern California in areas like Alpine County, Humboldt County, and Pescadero at local community sites and parks.

Volunteer-run camps are all staffed by screened and trained volunteers. Parents can often attend with their daughter in exchange for helping in different areas of the camp operation. Each camp handles volunteer registration differently. To obtain information about volunteering or registration, contact us at volunteercamps@gsnorcal.org!
