Specialty Camps

Outdoor adventure is a cornerstone to the Girl Scout experience. Our specialty camps focus on special interests and activities. In addition to summer camp, GSGLA offers year-round, staff-hosted weekend specialty camps for troops and families.

Camp encourages and supports girls in developing a strong sense of self, building practical life skills, cultivating healthy relationships, promoting cooperation and team building, appreciating diversity in a multicultural world, and becoming resourceful problem solvers.
