Camp Marydale is a picturesque 400 acre camp site, located 45 miles north of Baton Rouge, near the rolling hills of St. Francisville. Amenities include horseback riding, a low ropes challenge course, hiking trails, archery, swimming pool, and canoeing. Campers sleep in cabins or dormitory style buildings. There is also a multi-purpose building/dining hall, a large activity center and craft hut, an infirmary, all located near a pristine lake.
Camp Marydale is home to a 25+ herd of horses that are housed in a large barn and enjoy open pastures, two riding arenas, and two riding trails that wind throughout the property. Girl Scouts are taught horsemanship skills by our Wranglers, who are older girls who volunteer at Marydale on the weekend. Six residential units provide hot and cold showers.
Camp Marydale is available for use by Girl Scout troops/groups from September – May each year. Resident camp sessions typically run during the months of June and July.
Request to reserve space for your troop at Camp Marydale. Space is not reserved until your Membership Executive has approved the form and reservation fee has been received.
