Our Properties

Girl Scouts of Northern California is home to eleven properties located throughout Northern California. Experience the adventure of cooking out, sleeping in a cabin or tent, gazing at the stars, or learning about nature. Each council site offers something unique, from old growth redwoods and the Pacific coast to trails that have sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay.


Please Note: If you are a Non Girl Scout Non Profit and are interested in renting one of our sites, please contact us at registration@gsnorcal.org for pricing and information. We are not able to rent our properties for private events or companies.

Q. Who can rent GSNorCal properties?

A. Girl Scout members in and out of GSNorCal council, and non-profit groups.

To qualify as a GSNorCal group and receive GSNorCal rental rates, the group must be comprised of at least 60% current or lifetime GSNorCal members.

All non-profit organizations and rental groups must provide proof of liability insurance coverage of up to 1 million dollars and name Girl Scouts of Northern California as an additional insured.

Q. Do I have to rent an entire site?
A. Smaller groups can plan their own special trips by renting unit areas within the larger site, and service units and large groups may rent entire campsites for their events.

Q. Do I have to pay a deposit?
A. Yes, all groups pay a 20% non-refundable reservation deposit at the time of check out. The remaining balance on your reservation is then due 30 days prior to your trip. We also require a $25–100 cleaning deposit (depending on the type of group), which will be refunded if the site is cleaned in accordance with our policy.

Q. Can my group exceed the stated capacities for sites?
A. No. Day use and overnight capacities at each site are based on several factors, including American Camping Association safety standards, and may not be exceeded.

Q. Where can I find out what the rental fee and availability is for each property?
A. Each property's webpage includes a link to DoubleKnot, our reservation system, where you can view available dates. Email us at registration@gsnorcal.org or call (800) 447-4475 ext. 2091 for support.
