Our day camps encourage and support girls in:

  • Developing a strong sense of self
  • Nurturing positive values
  • Building practical life skills
  • Cultivating healthy relationships
  • Promoting cooperation and team building
  • Appreciating diversity in a multicultural world
  • Becoming resourceful problem solvers


GSGLA El Ranchito Day Camp Facilities



GSGLA camps focus on the Girl Scout Leadership Experience—a model that engages girls in discovering themselves, connecting with others, and taking action to make the world a better place.

This model is more inclusive and empowering of girls because the experiences are girl-led. Activities encourage experiential and cooperative learning. Each week is a new adventure as girls explore interactive themes that keep them engaged and learning.


El Ranchito is a charming, tree-filled setting tucked away in a suburban area in Long Beach. This park-like atmosphere offers plenty of space for girls to enjoy the outdoors. Camp activities include a climbing tower, low ropes elements, archery, gaga court, arts & crafts, and singing camp songs.
