Give your Girl Scout the Great Outdoors This Summer!
Click here or on the image at left for our Summer Camp Guide (pdf file) of everything you need to know about Summer Camp 2016!
Every summer, we provide girls with the opportunity to make new friends, learn new skills, have fun and get outside! We offer day camps and resident camps (sleep-away) at our two larger properties (Camp Scoutshire Woods and Kamp Kiwanis).
This year's theme is Neverland Adventure, a fun thread that winds through our regular sessions -- from pixie dust and fairies to seeking treasure and evading Captain Hook!
With all our camp amenities: horseback riding, swimming, sailing, crafting, zip lining and more, there is something for every girl at summer camp!
Camp Scoutshire Woods
Session Dates for 2016: June 12-17; June 19-24
Camp Scoutshire is near Citronelle, AL. Its large lake with a sandy beach make it just right for swmming and canoeing. The property, forested with pine and magnolia, offers the perfect camp atmosphere for hiking, crafting, campfires, games and rest. Camp Scoutshire Woods also features its own horse stables, so girls can learn how to ride and care for horses, while still enjoying traditional camp activities.

Session Dates for 2016: June 26 - July 1; July 5-9
Kamp Kiwanis is located on 110 acres 45 minutes north of Montgomery, in Eclectic, AL. The camp sits on beautiful Lake Martin, which makes this wooded camp with awe-inspiring lakefront views the perfect spot for sailing, kayaking and even a ride on the banana boat.
With miles of trails, many along the waterfront, Kamp Kiwanis makes it fun for every girl to participate in her favorite camp activities. Our popular Sail Away Camp, where girls learn boating skills, takes place at Kamp Kiwanis.

Are your camps accredited by the American Camp Association?
Camp staff members are enthusiastic, talented and caring individuals. Staff are selected on the basis of skills, experience, ability to serve as role models and their genuine desire to work with girls in the outdoors. The majority of our counselors are teachers or college students. The staff know how to involve girls in the camp community, make leadership decisions and how to handle homesickness.
All staff members receive extensive on-site training that includes camp facilities, health and safelty, activity programming and positive camper and staff interaction. Programs and activities are supervised by qualified staff and are conducted according to professional standards.
The health and safety of each camper is a primary concern of all the camp staff. The camps are inspected by the county boards of health and operate in compliance with their standards, along with those outlined gy Girl Scouts of the USA and the American Camp Association.Each staff member is trained in American Red Cross First Aid and CPR. A qualified health manager is on duty at all times. The camp health managers work closely with the camps' on-call physicians and arrangements are made in advance with local emergency response personnel for complete emergency care.
