Girl Scouts of Central Texas camp is an amazing experience that builds girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. It’s a place where girls come ready to play, explore, discover, and have the time of their life. It’s a wonderful place for girls to spend their summer, it’s accredited through the American Camp Association, and most of all it’s FUN. Every girl should have the chance to spend summer trying new things, exploring the great outdoors, making incredible memories with awesome new friends, and growing under the supervision and mentorship of highly-trained camp staff. At Girl Scouts of Central Texas camps, you’ll find something for every girl.
“We have so many cool camps,” said Lolis Garcia-Baab, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer at Girl Scouts of Central Texas. “For older girls, we’ve got a camp with the fire department. We’ve partnered with our fire chief, and she’s going to have female first responders putting on a camp for our older girls. So that’s going to be really awesome.”
There are dozens of other great camps on deck this year, including a cyber security camp, Girl vs. Wild (the ultimate Survivor-like camp challenge), and the Star Wars-themed Jedi Academy and Rebel Explorers camps, just to name a few. Campers will also enjoy Wayfinders (which teaches campers how to navigate using the stars) and the culinary Bake, Blend & Chop for aspiring chefs. There’s also horseback riding, and even wand making and playing a lively game of Quidditch at our “Harriett Potter” camp!
Girl Scout camps offer outdoor adventures, wacky water fun at the pool, team challenges, creative crafts, games and so much more! Additional camp themes include:
Wilderness Explorers—teaches classic camping and wilderness skills
Cowgirl Splash— learning how to ride horses, going on a trail ride, kayaking on the lake
Smooth Sailing— master sailing skills by practicing knots and rigging a boat, learn about safe capsize recovery and captaining a boat
Engineers to the Rescue— build a water filter, wind-powered crank, rubber band powered car and more
Flashlights and Fairy Tales— bring favorite fairy tale characters to life by learning their skills and having personalized adventures, like shooting arrows like Merida, swimming like Ariel, and searching for Winnie the Pooh in Camp Texlake’s 100-acre wood
At Girl Scout summer camp, the adventure is high, the fun is big, and the experience is one-of-a-kind. In a world of screens—smartphones, laptops, TVs and tablets—it’s the perfect opportunity to get away from it all. Whether just coming for the day, or a two-week overnight adventure, at Girl Scout camp, girls learn new skills, meet new people, and try things they’ve never done before.
Girl Scouts of Central Texas also believes in the importance of experiencing camp for all young people, and works hard to make sure camp is financially within reach for every Girl Scout!
