Camp Sugar Pine is offering open office hours for all returning and prospective campers and their families! This is a great opportunity to visit camp, see the facilities, meet the camp director, ask questions, and share any information with us about your camper.

Want to learn more about the GSNorCal camp experience? Join us for a camp information night, where caregivers, troop leaders, and girls can meet our camp leadership team, ask questions, learn more about registration and financial aid opportunities, and get all the information you need to join us for a memorable and fun-filled summer camp session!

Each camp information night will include a 30-minute presentation about each of the 3 council-run camps (Bothin, Skylark Ranch, and Sugar Pine), light refreshments, and a private space to chat with the camp directors about your camper’s special needs, if needed.

Meet Your Camp Director

Morgan AKA "Tulip"

Hometown: Newbury Park, CA

Her Camp Cred: After working at a variety of day camps serving children with special needs, I started my Sugar Pine journey in 2010 as a Lead Counselor, and worked my way up to Unit Manager, Assistant Camp Director, and now, Camp Director.

Why She's Excited for Camp: I love camp because I wholeheartedly believe that s’mores should be their very own food group! But seriously, I will never get tired of the pure magic of children discovering something brand new about themselves or their world and gaining confidence from new experiences.
