At this camp your girl can sail, windsurf, kayak, surf, and swim right from our freshwater beach, or pedal down the Cape Cod Rail Trail in our extensive biking program. 

As we learned in summer 2021, camp can be run during a pandemic. We are excited for the woods to come alive again during Summer 2022 with laughter, fun, adventure, and friendship! Safety is a cornerstone of Girl Scouting. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, 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. As our regulations are updated, GSEMA will update all procedures and communicate them with families. 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, 2022, based on the schedules described on our website. Any changes to these schedules will be communicated via our website, email, and social media.

Typical Day

A typical day at Camp Favorite can be summed up in one word: FUN! Campers work together with help from their counselors to plan a schedule centered around their interests. You may spend half the day focusing on your program specialty and the rest of the day exploring other exciting activities camp offers. An emphasis on building friendships, confidence, and leadership skills is incorporated into every activity. At Camp Favorite, no two days will be the same, but each day will be filled with laughter, exploration, and discovery.

Sleeping Quarters

Our camps have excellent sleeping quarters that allow campers to be close to nature but still have many comforts of home. Campers live in platform tents with 2-3 others of the same age level who are enrolled in their same program. A unit is a group of nearby tents that house all of the campers in a program and generally have between 10-20 campers. Counselors sleep in separate tents near the campers. Every unit has flush toilets and electricity. See pictures of Camp Favorite sleeping quarters.

Health and Safety

Camp Favorite is an American Camp Association-accredited camp. This means that every five years, a nationally recognized organization ensures that everything we do (from the meals we serve to the programs we plan) is done in a safe way. By selecting an ACA-accredited camp, you can be assured your camper is safe.

Camp Favorite must comply with the regulations of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (105 CMR 430.000) and is licensed by the town of Brewster, MA.

What to Bring

Packing for camp can be very hard, 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 (less than 12" high) or a soft duffle bag that can fit under your bed. Please label EVERYTHING with your full name.
