To help provide even more camping opportunities for Girl Scouts, we have partnered with camps who can provide extra programming.
GO·REC (Greilick Outdoor Recreation & Education Center)
GOREC is your destination for outdoor adventure education in the
Great Lakes region. People of all ages can train in adventure
leadership, outdoor skills, and recreational safety. Our outdoor
classroom is 500 wooded, lakeside acres in northern Michigan where you
can hike, bike, kayak, and rock climb. Rent campsites, bunkhouses, and
cottages to explore the outdoors and support education. Come see for
