Girl Scouts swimming outdoors at a GSEMA camp



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. We also offer our properties for event rental for corporate meetings and retreats, weddings, and other celebrations. 

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. 

Our day camps are located a short bus ride from home: Cedar Hill/WalthamFavorite/BrewsterMaude Eaton/AndoverRice Moody/Reading, Runels/Pelham, NH and Wind-in-the-Pines/Plymouth. Bus transportation is included in the fee.

We also offer bus transportation weekly from Boston, Braintree, and Woburn to our four resident camps, for an additional fee. Our resident camps are Favorite/BrewsterRunels/Pelham, NHWabasso/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, accept 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.
