Camp Outback


Camp Outback is offered as a day camp experience for girls each summer. The Outback, an 8.5 acre nature area located behind A Place for Girls, the Council’s headquarters and program center located in Chesapeake, Virginia. Campers can enjoy hiking on nature trails, be challenged on the fitness trail, hone your skills on the archery range, climb the 50 foot outlook tower, canoe on Bells Mill Creek or participate in outdoor classroom activities in one of the four outdoor pavilions located on the property. The Outback is a designated site on the Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail. Adjacent to A Place for Girls, located near The Outback, is The Lodge, an annex property that provides program space, inside and out, along with an in-ground, salt-water pool for camper use.

Unfortunately, camp properties are not open at this time until further notice due to circumstances created by COVID-19. Enjoy this virtual tour until we can all gather again at Camp Outback behind A Place For Girls!
