Camp with Girl Scouts
Spending time in nature, whether hanging from a climbing wall or taking a walk in the woods, has been linked with better mental, emotional, and physical health. Through camping, girls unplug as they step outside of their comfort zone and create lifelong friendships, without a gender bias. And of course, camp is fun! Check out the different ways to get outdoors.
Did you know your troop can reserve GSMISTS camps? Plan a weekend getaway or summer adventure with your troop and experience camping in cabins, yurts, or even pop-up tents. Information on GSMISTS facilities and how to make a reservation can be found here.
Resident Camp is for girls who have finished kindergarten and older. Girls camp for three to fourteen days and nights (the average is five nights). They plan activities with their counselors/volunteers, taking advantage of the resources available at the campsite.
Girl Scouts of Michigan Shore to Shore has partnered with Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan (GSHOM) for resident camp. You can find information about dates and location at GSHOM's camp website.

To help provide even more camping opportunities for Girl Scouts, we have partnered with GOREC, the destination for outdoor adventure education in the Great Lakes region. With 500 wooded acres and several lodging options, there are many ways to explore the outdoors and support education. Learn more at our Collaborative Camps page.
