Below are a list of each Camp Facilities and Fees, along with Activity Fees and Reservations form.
Camp Covington Perched in St. Tammany Parish, Camp Covington is one of the oldest Girl Scout Camps in the United States. The eastern border of Camp Covington is the Bogue Falaya River. The river is usually quite shallow here and girls enjoy wading in the water and exploring the riverbed. Lodging options include platform tents and cabin units. Archery, sand volleyball and a variety of exercise equipment.
Camp Marydale This picturesque 400-acre camp is a great getaway in St. Francisville. Camp Marydale is home to a herd of horses that live in a large barn and enjoy open pastures and two riding arenas. Girl Scouts are taught horsemanship skills by our Wranglers, who are older girls who volunteer at Marydale on the weekend. Marydale is much more than horses, other amenities, including low ropes challenge course, hiking trails, archery, swimming pool and canoeing. Campers sleep in cabins or dormitory style buildings.
Camp Whispering Pines Our largest property at 600 acres, Camp Whispering Pines, located just north of Hammond, is unofficially referred to as our water camp. New in 2013, we added a large water slide to Timber Lake, which already serves as home base for canoeing and kayaking. Other activities include swimming in our Junior Olympic-size pool, archery, rock wall and high ropes challenge course with a zip line.
Camp Whispering Pines offers progressive camping experiences for troops. They are: day use areas; platform tent units; cabin units; a winterized troop house; semi-primitive and primitive areas. The camp is open all year to Girl Scouts and outside user groups. It is home to a unique long-leaf pine savannah and a diverse wildlife.
McFadden Cabin Built in 1936, Girl Scouts Louisiana East has a cabin in the middle of New Orleans’ City Park. Located just behind the New Orleans Museum of Art, McFadden Cabin can be used for meetings, ceremonies, art projects, or as a base for exploring City Park. Even though it’s available just for day use, there is still much fun to be had at the cabin.
