Which Camp is Right for Me?

Day Camp Marine Landing

Located in Long Beach, Marine Landing offers unique programming focusing on paddle sports, marine science, and Girl Scout traditions. The calm waters of Alamitos Bay offer the perfect location for beginning paddlers to learn new skills and an expansive landscape for expert mariners to seek new challenges. Staff and campers alike are dedicated to creating memories that last a lifetime on our private GSGLA beach with the ocean as our backdrop. The motto here is: Swim. Paddle. Laugh. Repeat.

Day Camp El Ranchito

Tucked away in the charming suburbs of Long Beach, El Ranchito is a tree-lined high adventure day camp, where girls and staff alike are encouraged to take safe risks through exciting, confidence-building outdoor activities including archery, a challenge course, and a 32-foot climbing tower!

Day Camp Mariposa

At just over an acre, Mariposa is a quaint hidden oasis nestled in a quiet, residential neighborhood in the foothills of Altadena. Mariposa’s park-like atmosphere – including meadow and pond – is the ideal setting for classic Girl Scout experiences. Staff will engage and encourage girls to explore science with our STEAM experiments, play teambuilding games, learn camping skills, build self-esteem, and, of course, sing Girl Scout songs!

Overnight Camp Lakota

Lakota is the place to unplug, discover your sense of self, and embark on the adventure of a lifetime. Located in Frazier Park, CA, in the middle of a pristine pine forest you’ll spend your summer at camp engaging campers in cabin life, archery, horseback riding, swimming, challenge courses, campfires, and more! Something to keep in mind, this camp does require residency at Camp Lakota from mid-June to mid-August- with weekends off. It’s the perfect opportunity to meet and connect with other staff from around the world!
