Camps & Facilities

Getting outdoors is a great way for girls to explore leadership, build skills, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Whether they go for a day, a week, or longer, having outdoor experiences gives girls an opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun under the guidance of caring, trained adults. Every girl deserves a chance to be an outdoor adventurer and there’s an adventure for every girl through Girl Scouts!

Girl Scouts of Colonial Coast operates several camps, including The Outback nature area located at our regional program center, for troop camping and outdoor programming that includes summer day and resident camp options. These properties are open year-round and are also available for outside rentals. Each site offers a unique opportunity for exploration, education and exciting outdoor experiences.
