GSEMA Camps: Boston Parent's Paper Family Favorite 2018 Winner

Girl Scout Camps


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, and survival camping. 

Our camp properties host summer day and resident camp programs, as well as family/troop/group camping. Prior Girl Scout membership is not required to come to camp.

Year-round, troops can conquer our high ropes challenge courses and camp in lodges and tents, learn outdoor and survival skills, and discover nature. We also open our properties to corporate groups for team-building retreats and conferences, and to families for 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 Camp

Research shows summer camp can help children retain a significant amount of what they learn during the school year. At Girl Scout camp, girls make new friends, feel good about themselves, and access experiences they would not normally be offered, such as sailing, creative arts, horseback riding, drama, and ropes courses team activities.  

Girl Scout camp is a safe environment to have fun with friends, play outdoors, and explore new activities. Girls get to be decision-makers with leadership opportunities in every program. It's more than activities; it's a caring community.

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

We offer bus transportation weekly from Boston, Braintree, and Woburn to our four resident camps, for an additional fee. Our resident camps are: Favorite/Brewster, Runels/Pelham, NH, Wabasso/Bradford,NH, and Wind-in-the-Pines/Plymouth.
