Girl Scout camps and outdoor experiences provide opportunities for girls to discover, connect, and take action in ways that build their courage, confidence, and character. GSEMA camps offer girls unique and adventurous opportunities in the outdoors, including archery, rock climbing, ropes courses, swimming, survival camping, and more!

Our camp properties host summer day camp and resident camp, year-round outdoor programs, and troop, family, and group camping. Prior Girl Scout membership is not required to come to camp. 

American Camp Association Accredited

Our camps are accredited by The American Camp Association (ACA). ACA accreditation means that the camp undergoes a thorough annual review of its operation—from staff qualifications and training to emergency management.

Summer Resident and Day Camp

Research shows that summer camp can help children retain a significant amount of what they learn during the school year. Girl Scout camp is a safe environment where girls have fun with friends, play outdoors, and explore new activities. Girls get to be decision-makers with leadership opportunities in every program.

We know this summer will look different, but we are excited for the woods to come alive again with laughter, fun, and friendship. Safety is a cornerstone of Girl Scouting. We will continually update our COVID-19 guidelines and safety procedures to decrease the risk of exposure to COVID-19. We are taking special precautions to keep our campers and staff safe and healthy, including increased cleaning measures, reduced capacities, adjusted program and operational procedures, and detailed training for our summer camp and full-time staff. We are monitoring recommendations from the CDC, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, New Hampshire Department of Health, American Camp Association and GSUSA. Camp plans are subject to change based on all of these factors, but our current plan is to operate camp in summer, 2021, based on the schedules described on our website. Any changes to these schedules will be communicated via our website, email, and social media.

Our day camps are located a short bus ride from home: Cedar Hill/Waltham, Maude Eaton/Andover, Rice Moody/Reading,  and Wind-in-the-Pines/Plymouth. Bus transportation is included in the fee.

Our resident camps are Favorite/Brewster, Runels/Pelham, NH, Wabasso/Bradford, NH, and Wind-in-the-Pines/Plymouth.

A GSEMA camp gift certificate can be redeemed for camp sessions at any of our six day camps and four resident camps. Anyone can give the gift of a week (or more!). Visit a GSEMA shop or email us for more information.

Year-Round Outdoor Programs

We offer fun, hands-on outdoor experiences throughout the year that enrich girls’ lives. Our year-round outdoor adventures are opportunities for girls to learn skills to resolve conflict, embrace differences, get along with others, and work together to achieve a shared goal. The atmosphere of acceptance and sharing at our camps helps girls thrive.

Troop/Group Camping and Event Rentals

We know that girls of all ages enjoy participating in outdoor activities at GSEMA properties. Outdoor adventures and camping are such an important part of the Girl Scout experience, allowing girls to challenge themselves and increase their interest in and love for the outdoors.

COVID-19 has had a significant impact on our ability to safely open up our camp properties for girls to enjoy. We are continuously monitoring GSUSA, MA.gov, NH.gov, and CDC guidelines to make sound decisions to offer outdoor adventure programs with the safety of our Girl Scout members and staff in mind. The program team is being innovative and creative to offer at-home unplugged and virtual outdoor experiences, too. Check out our Programs page for newly-added outdoor programs, and check back to this page for the latest updates for outdoor adventures and GSEMA property use.
