Camp Life is the best life!


We live in a world of screens—smartphone, laptop, tablets—and sometimes, it’s important to get away from it all. We get it. That’s why we welcome all girls K-12 to join us at Girl Scouts of Connecticut Summer Camps. Registration is open NOW to sign your girl up for a summer to remember.

Summer camp offers fun and challenging activities for all girls. Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s summer camps are licensed by the State of Connecticut and accredited by the American Camp Association. Girl Scouts of Connecticut operates seven day camps and one resident camp in the following towns:

·         Camp An-Se-Ox: Oxford

·         Camp Aspetuck: Weston

·         Camp Carlson: Bristol

·         Camp Clatter Valley: New Milford

·         Camp Katoya: Milford

·         Camp Merrie-Wood: Manchester

·         Camp Laurel: Lebanon—Day and Resident Camp!

Girl Scouts wouldn’t be Girl Scouts without the great outdoors. At summer camp, girls will develop the kind of outdoor skills it’s hard to get anywhere else like building a campfire, pitching a tent, canoeing across the lake, and hiking the trails. What about horseback riding, outdoor adventure, swimming, and archery? Girls will find out how much fun it is to unplug and explore the world around them.

Girl Scout summer camp is a great way for girls to explore leadership, build skills, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Whether for a day, a week, or longer, Girl Scout camp gives girls an opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun under the guidance of caring, trained adults.

Girls with more frequent outdoor experiences are more likely to seek challenges and solve problems—qualities that will help them embark on a lifetime of leadership. Spending time in nature improves a girl’s concentration and creative reasoning. Outdoor experiences also help promote healthy social development and increases her
self-esteem.

Each member of our summer camp staff has been carefully screened and chosen for their skills and experience receiving 30 hours of training in child development, teambuilding, safety, and risk management.

Girl Scouts of Connecticut offers free bus services from many local towns. Financial aid is available and we accept Care 4 Kids. Girl Scouts of Connecticut will also be hosting camp information and registration nights in February and March. For more information, visit gsofct.org, call (800) 922-2770, or email camp@gsofct.org
