Meet new friends and make great memories at Camp Rice Moody—the perfect place for day campers for over 69 years! Take part in planning your camp experiences with counselors and fellow campers. Choose from favorite camp activities like arts and crafts, games, splashing around in the swimming pool, and singing. Extended care at no extra cost makes Camp Rice Moody a great childcare alternative for busy families. Girls in grades 6-12 can receive leadership training here. Whether you come for a week or the whole summer, it’s the best way to sample all the fun of camp!  

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.
