Camp Description
Get outside and get a taste of Camp Life with outdoor arts, camping, archery, and outdoor adventure. Camp includes Girl Scout traditions such as sing-alongs, campfires, and s’mores. Cook outside, practice archery, make outdoor art, camp in tents, identify poison ivy, play outside, and earn badges.

What to Expect at Camp
Friday night, Girl Scouts will set up their sleep spaces, have a flag ceremony, eat supper, and have a dance party and board games. Your Girl Scout will spend the night in a tent with a buddy in her patrol. Saturday, we’ll start with a flag ceremony and breakfast. The morning and afternoon are spent working on badge requirements, outdoor cooking, archery, and other programs. Weather permitting, we typically have a visit from the Pembroke Fire Department pump truck for a late afternoon cool off. Your Girl Scout will play camp-wide games, put on a skit at the Saturday night campfire, and sleep a second night in her tent. Sunday morning is a Scout’s Own ceremony, reflection time, and free program time before our closing ceremony at 1:00 PM.
