Mariposa Day Camp

I can't wait to go to Camp Mariposa

At Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles, our goal is to provide an enriching atmosphere that fosters growth and development in our campers as they participate in carefully designed, dynamic activities.

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 Camp Mariposa Day Camp Facilities Album


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.

Mariposa is a hidden oasis, where the stresses of urban city life are long forgotten. Located in the foothills of Altadena, this park-like atmosphere includes a small pond, campfire ring, and the Singing Steps Amphitheater. Camp activities include arts & crafts, singing songs, team building, low ropes elements, a gaga court, a kids’ kitchen, and water play for those warm days.
