Our Camps

Our camps offer unique life experiences designed to help girls discover and develop themselves. Within a safe and supportive environment, girls participate in activities that develop skills, build self-esteem, and provide a sense of accomplishment. The programs are well-rounded and are appropriate to the age, interests, and abilities of the campers. What makes our camps so special is the connection experienced with new friends, the support of a trained staff, and outdoor experiences that provide progression, challenge and FUN, all in a place just for girls!

Whether a girl is a first-time or experienced camper, Girl Scouts of Northern California has a summer camp program that’s right for her.

Different types of camps and programs are available during the summer. You’ll find information on all the council run camp programs, Day Camp- Camp Metro in San Jose, Resident Camps- Bothin near Marin, Deer Lake near Tahoe, Skylark Ranch near Santa Cruz, and Sugar Pine near Arnold.

Volunteer Run Camps

These day and resident camps are run by volunteers and held at community locations and GS properties throughout Northern California. Parents can often attend with their daughter in exchange for helping in different areas of the camp operation.
