Our Laurel campers enjoy all the amenities of the 300
acre property including swimming and boating in the lake, playing on
the fields, and hiking the wooded trails. The units have pavilions and
tents or cabins to offer shelter for sunny or rainy days, hand washing
stations, and GSOFCT owned portable toilets. Girls are grouped in units
by age. Laurel resident and day campers will share many of the
activities together during the day.
Day Camp Bus Service was provided within or near Canterbury, Colchester, Coventry, East Hampton, East Lyme, Hebron, Lebanon, Lisbon, Mansfield, Marlborough, Middletown, New London, Norwich, Portland, Tolland, Willimantic, and Waterford. Not all buses run all sessions. Bus schedules will change based on enrollment.
All girls are welcome — Girl Scouts and non-Girl Scouts.
