Volunteer-Run Sleepaway Camps

Volunteer run camps hero

To learn about each camp’s offerings for the 2024 season, please visit their website.

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 or rented summer camps.

Volunteer-run camps are all staffed by screened and trained volunteers. Parents can often attend with their girl 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!

Nestled among the pine trees, granite slopes, and clear waters of the Sierra Nevada, Camp Two Sentinels is a welcome relief from the hectic bustle of suburban life. At 8,000 feet above sea level, the sun warms the skin, the mountain lakes cool the body, and the rocky trails stimulate the muscles. Two Sentinels Girl Scout camp is a rustic, High Sierra camp providing girls with outdoor and backpacking skills, independence, leadership, and fun since 1936. We are accredited by the American Camp Association. Learn More >>
