Summer Camps

THANK YOU to Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama for sponsoring our STEM Water Activities! Girls were able to learn about water resistance, friction, forward momentum, and how surface color affects surface temperature. 

Our properties host camping and outdoor activities, which remain a favorite for girls at every age, as they have been throughout Girl Scout history. In the summer, we offer the opportunity to attend one of our resident or sail away camps. At summer camp, girls can conquer our zip lines and watercraft activities, camp in lodges and tents, learn outdoor and survival skills, and discover nature. Your girl does NOT have to be a Girl Scout to attend our summer camp.

2020 Camp Guide will be available in January.

Sail Away Camp

Our popular sailing camp is open to Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors (girls entering 6th through 12th grades in fall 2019). This camp is a 6-day, 5-night camp for girls who want to learn the exciting sport of sailing!

Girls will spend every day in a sailboat as they hone their skills on beautiful Lake Martin. They will practice their knots, perfect their tack and jibe, and successfully turtle their boat so that when the wind is perfect on the water, the girls will be ready to sail with confidence!

Additional activities include nautical-themed arts and crafts, sunrise paddles, water sports games, campfires, and zip-lining.

This camp is for girls of any sailing experience.  Girls must be proficient swimmers. Prior membership in Girl Scouting is not required.

 For more information on Sail Away Camp please contact Cheryl "River" Miller

Camp Scholarship Application

Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama believes every girl should get to experience Girl Scout camp.  We provide options that make camp affordable. Consider earning Girl Scout Cookie Sale Program Credits, setting up a camp payment plan, asking for troop assistance or camp gift cards.  If you still need help, complete the financial assistance application. Financial assistance is available to registered members of Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama. Scholarships are available for one session of summer camp per child, per summer. For more information about Camp Scholarships, see our camp guide.

Research shows that children who receive healthy mental stimulation over the summer retain a significant amount of what they learn during the school year. Summer camp encourages children to try new things, feel good about themselves and experience activities that they would not normally be offered, such as sailing, creative arts, horseback riding, zip lining, and many other water craft activities. Campers will have a rewarding experience no matter which session they choose. Prior membership in Girl Scouting is not required. Resident camps are held at Kamp Kiwanis and Scoutshire Woods.

Year-Round Outdoor Program
We offer fun, hands-on learning—an enrichment experience that meets girls' needs. Girl Scouts has innovative program activities, events and camps for girls of all interests. We offer year-round opportunities to try new things and challenge yourself in a camp setting. You'll do more than enjoy camp activities; you'll join a caring community. Girls learn skills to resolve conflict, accept differences, get along with others, and work together to achieve a shared goal. The atmosphere of acceptance and sharing at camp is special, and it helps girls thrive. We invite you to join us for one or more of our year-round camp programs.

You can reserve our camp properties for day or overnight outdoor fun!
