Girl Scout Camp—for every girl!

Girl Scout overnight camps—Camp Arrowhead in Stevenson, Washington, Camp Cleawox in Florence, Oregon, and Camp Whispering Winds in Philomath, Oregon—are the perfect place for your girl to develop new skills and find self-confidence in a safe, fun environment.

Girl Scout camp provides your girl with new opportunities for adventures with new friends and to learn new skills that build her confidence—all guided by trained, high quality staff. New to Girl Scouts? We invite you to join us! No matter what your girl’s level of experience, comfort, or knowledge is now, she will gain the experience she needs to feel confident when taking the next step in her outdoor journey.

Due to ongoing health and safety risks and restrictions related to COVID-19, we will not be offering regular overnight camp programming for summer 2021. We are excited to share several alternative day and overnight programs for your family or troop to choose from—most of which take place on our beloved camp properties! See below for program details, or check out the 2021 Overnight Camp FAQs.

 Virtual/At-Home Programs


Camp On! Experience Kits

Back this summer by popular demand! Camp On! inspires Girl Scouts to explore camp activities on their own time and from their own neighborhood. Receive a curated box of supplies in the mail to bring the magic of camp into your home. Discover all new hands on, themed activities sent right to your home. At the end of the month, join other campers in a live streamed Camp In Campout to celebrate the month’s theme in true camp style. Develop skills, build confidence and stay mentally and physically active through adventures at camp on!

What's Included
Each Camp On! Experience kit includes:

  • Supplies for 3-4 themed activities
  • A Camp On! activity packet filled with additional activities and recipes
  • Friendship bracelet string
  • Lanyard string and key ring
  • Pre-stamped envelope with stationery
  • Free admittance to that month’s Camp In Camp Out
  • And more!
Adult Experience

Camp On! provides your girl opportunities for at-home learning through themed supplies and guidance to try new activities on her own. Girl Scouts all over the region will participate in the same activities each month, culminating in a live streamed virtual Camp In Campout led by GSOSW staff. These activities may require occasional assistance from you or another adult in charge. Please review the following before registering a camper for Camp On!

It is up to your discretion the level of supervision you will need to give your camper for self-led activities. We suggest you take the time to review all supplies in the mailed box so you know whether your camper can responsibly use them on her own.

Depending on factors like where you live, campers may be invited to try self-led activities that get them outdoors or exercising. Please review all activities and supplies before the start of the session so you can establish boundaries and discuss your family rules with your camper.

Girl Experience

We’d love to have you be a part of Camp On! This summer! You will receive a special box in the mail full of camp goodies and activity supplies. Depending on what month you attend Camp On!, there will be a camp theme: themes from last summer include Art in the Outdoors, Wizards in the Outdoors, and STEM in the Outdoors. You will have the opportunity to celebrate camp traditions with other Girl Scouts by attending the month’s Camp In Campout, a live virtual event led by GSOSW staff.

 

Experience Kit Price

$50/Experience Kit


Camp In Campout

Join girls and families across Oregon and SW Washington for a virtual campout! Experience the magic of Girl Scout camp from the comfort of your own home, including singalongs and a campfire. Pitch a tent in your yard or create a blanket fort in your house to sleep in. Show off your gourmet s'mores, make a traditional camp craft and video chat with your friends or troop. Get a taste of overnight camp without leaving home!

What to Expect

You will receive an activity packet one week before this event, in case you wish to prepare for certain activities or coordinate with your friends or troop from afar. It will include recipe and game ideas, song lyrics, blanket fort instructions, badge connections and a schedule of the evening's events. 

We'll kick off the night with a live welcome before dinner. Pick a camp-themed recipe to try out from the activity packet, or fix up your favorite camping meal. Put any final touches onto your "campsite"-- like twinkle lights, a lantern or fluffy pillows around a sleeping bag-- and tune back in to enjoy s'mores with all the other campers. There will be time in between for you to do activities on your own or virtually with your troop; use the activity packet for inspiration! The night will close with everyone singing a song together. Get cozy in your tent or fort, and fall asleep to dream of camp magic.
