The Outback is offered as a day camp experience for girls each summer. At just over 7 acres, The Outback nature area is a protected wetland located behind A Place for Girls, the Council’s headquarters and program center in Chesapeake, Virginia. Campers can enjoy hiking on nature trails, be challenged on the fitness trail, hone their skills on the archery range, climb the 50-foot observation 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, as well as being a Lou Henry Hoover Memorial Sanctuary. Adjacent to A Place for Girls and The Outback is The Lodge, an annex property that provides program space, inside and out, overnight accommodations and an in-ground, salt-water pool for camper use.
