Directions

There are separate directions for Wind-in-the-Pines day camp and resident camp, and the two camp properties are not connected.

Please do NOT use a GPS or MapQuest to get to camp, as those directions may not work well, and they will likely get you lost on some very remote roads.

Day Camp: Take Route 3 to exit 3. Follow the signs towards Clarke Road at the end of the ramp. At the stop sign ¼-mile up, turn right onto Long Pond Road. Follow Long Pond Road past South High School (on the right). About .4 of a mile past the high school, turn left on Mast Road. Mast Road is a dirt road. The Camp entrance is 1.7 miles down Mast Road on the left, and it is clearly marked.

Resident Camp: Take Route 3 to Exit 3. At the end of the ramp follow the arrow towards Clark Road. At the stop sign, ¼ mile up the road, turn left then immediately right (almost a diagonal) to stay on Clark Road. At the end of the road, ½-mile up, turn left. Go around the bend and the road turns to dirt. Camp is ¼-mile ahead on the right.

Typical Day

No two days are the same at Camp Wind-in-the-Pines! At the beginning of each session, you'll work with counselors to build a schedule centered around your unit's interests. Counselors will then take the ideas of all the campers and put them together for a great session that combines program specialty areas and the activities you choose!

An emphasis on building friendships, confidence, and leadership skills is incorporated into every activity. At Wind-in-the-Pines each day will be filled with laughter, exploration, and discovery.

About the Director

Colleen “Giggles” Grady is very excited to be returning as camp director this summer! This will be her 2nd year directing at camp. She is dedicated to making camp a “brave space” for girls to try new things, set personal goals, and grow in courage, confidence, and character. She believes camp should be camper-centered, experiential, hands-on, and goal-orientated for all girls.

Entering her 6th summer at Camp Wind-in-the-Pines, Giggles has previously held the positions of unit counselor, leadership director, and assistant camp director. During the school year, Giggles is a middle school music teacher. She earned her BA in Music Education from UMass Amherst and her MM from Ithaca College.

Giggles commits 100% to everything she does, including, but not limited to: singing, dress up days, slime obstacle courses, cookout desserts, rock climbing, sand castles, tie dye, and any other silly and over-the-top activity she can come up with! She is passionate about Girl Scouts and providing girls with new opportunities to grow as individuals in a safe, caring environment. She hopes to meet you this summer!

What to Bring

Packing for camp can be very hard if you don’t know what to bring for your stay, 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(PDF) that will work for all our camp programs. We recommend packing in a camp trunk that can fit under your bed or a soft duffle bag. Please label EVERYTHING with your full name. Visit the Girl Scout Shop for camping essentials!
