Campers will unleash the adventurer within at Camp Wind-in-the-Pines in Plymouth—now in its 93rd year! This camp combines adventure sports and beloved camp activities into one unforgettable experience. At Camp WIP, campers can explore swimming, boating, hiking, high and low ropes courses, rock climbing, archery, and more. Plus, they can design their entire program with fellow campers for an authentic camper-led experience!
No two days are the same at Camp Wind-in-the-Pines! At the beginning of each session, campers will work with counselors to build a schedule centered around their unit's interests. Counselors will then take the ideas of all the campers and put them together for a great session that combines program specialty areas and the activities you choose!
An emphasis on building friendships, confidence, and leadership skills is incorporated into every activity. At Wind-in-the-Pines each day will be filled with laughter, exploration, and discovery.
Colleen “Giggles” Grady is very excited to be returning as Camp Director this summer! This will be her fifth year directing camp. She is dedicated to making camp a “brave space” for girls to try new things, set personal goals, and grow in courage, confidence, and character. She believes camp should be camper-centered, experiential, hands-on, and goal-orientated for all girls.
Entering her ninth summer at Camp Wind-in-the-Pines, Giggles has previously held the positions of unit counselor, leadership director, and assistant camp director. During the school year, Giggles is a middle school music teacher. She earned her BA in Music Education from UMass Amherst, and her MM from Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY.
Giggles commits 100% to everything she does, including, but not limited to: singing, dress up days, slime obstacle courses, cookout desserts, rock climbing, sand castles, tie dye, and any other silly and over-the-top activity she can come up with! She is passionate about Girl Scouts and providing girls with new opportunities to grow as individuals in a safe, caring environment. She hopes to meet you this summer!

Packing for camp can be very hard if you don’t know what to bring for your stay, especially if you are a first-time camper. If you're wondering what you can and cannot bring to camp, view a complete packing list that will work for all our camp programs. We recommend packing in a camp trunk that can fit under your bed or a soft duffle bag. Please label EVERYTHING with your full name. Visit the Girl Scout Shop for camping essentials!
There are separate directions for Wind-in-the-Pines day camp and overnight camp, and the two camp properties are not connected.
Please do NOT use a GPS or mapping app to get to camp, as those directions may not work well, and they will likely get you lost on some very remote roads.
To Overnight Camp
Take Route 3 to Exit 7. Follow signs for Clark Rd. If coming from the North, take a right at the end of the exit ramp; if coming from the South take a left at the end of the exit ramp. At the stop light go straight onto Clark Road (diagonal across the intersection). Follow to the end of the road and take a left. You will pass a boat ramp on your left and the road turns into a dirt way. The entrance to camp is straight ahead before the road takes a sharp left turn. Look for the Camp Wind-in-the-Pines sign.
