The Camp Experience

Girls find their strengths and challenge themselves as they navigate activities on the water, at the campsite, and along the trail. Girl Scouts of Northern California's camp sessions allow girls to develop a strong sense of self and positive values, build healthy relationships, seek challenges, and have fun while making memories of a lifetime!

At camp, girls can enjoy a variety of activities like building campfires, swimming, riding horses, shooting arrows, creating art and crafts, hiking, science experiments, camping, navigating with GPS, canoeing, kayaking, eating family-style meals, and tackling the fitness courses–all while making friends. That’s why many girls consider Girl Scout Camp one of their favorite places on earth.

Summer 2021 Adventure Pods

This year, sessions are focused on classic camp experiences, sisterhood and community, and girls having voice and choice in their experience. At registration, participants will not select a themed session. They will register for the age group at the camp of their choice, and should base their choice on the camp that offers activities they are excited about.

Throughout the session, participants will have opportunities to choose activities within their pod.

These “classic camp” themes are developed to coordinate with the camp culture at each specific site. They are built to support the longer session lengths as well as each girls’ autonomy while fostering a sense of collaboration and community within their pod.

Where You'll Stay at Camp

With all the fun you’ll be having during the day, you’ll be tuckered out and happy to have a quiet place to rest your head at night. Pods are housed in groups of 4–12 campers, and depending on sleeping accommodations staff either sleep in the same space or in a separate accommodation nearby. At night, staff members are always within earshot if they are needed.

Sleeping accommodations vary by camp.

Camp Bothin has a variety of indoor and outdoor accommodations:

  • Yurts are a cross between a cabin and a tent and have bunk beds for 8-12 girls, a domed skylight, and screened windows and doors.
  • Cabins are uninsulated, outdoor buildings with bunk beds.
  • Dorms are insulated, year-round, indoor sleeping spaces with bunk beds.

Camp Hidden Falls has three styles of rustic accommodations, all with shelters and bathrooms in walking distance.

Tree Beds are lashed beds made from logs into supportive frames, and hung by campers.

Hammock Villages are store-bought camping hammocks hung in the trees.

Pop-Up Tents are traditional ground camping tents with camp mattresses.

Camp Sugar Pine has two types of outdoor living accommodations:

  • Cabins are uninsulated, outdoor buildings with bunk beds.
