Resident Camp

Studies show that girls today are not spending nearly enough time outdoors, so let's Get a Girl to Camp this summer!  From discovering exciting new activities to challenging her limits with supportive adults by her size, each girl builds confidence in herself and her newfound skills.  

Whether it’s hiking, horses, or water sports she loves, Girl Scouts Louisiana East has just the camp for your girl! No matter what program she chooses, your girl will enjoy swimming, boating, outdoor cooking, the beauty of nature, and so much more!  She’ll learn new skills, as she revels in the joy of being outside, active, with friends she’s made along the way!

Overnight resident camp will run June 3-August 3 at Camps Marydale and Whispering Pines for girls entering 1st-12th grades in Fall 2018. 

General registration begins February 7. Full payment is due with registration, which will be handled online at www.gsle.org/ebiz. Fees per session typically range from $75 to $410 for girls, entering 1st through 12th grades. 

Register for a resident camp session at any Open House, using our computers, and receive a $25 discount. 

ACA Accredited

ACAaccreditedlogo

Girl Scout Camp Marydale, Camp Whispering Pines, and Camp Covington are all accredited by the American Camp Association. Accreditation means that each camp undergoes a thorough review process by outside camping professionals every three years. Our Girl Scout camps consistently achieve the highest standards in the areas of personnel, program, site administration, and health care.

Our Camp Counselors

Our counselors are selected based on their program skills, maturity, education, caring attitude, and experience with children. Counselors are primarily college students, both female and male, with male counselors housed in separate quarters. Program areas, such as ropes course, horses, swimming and boating, are directed by certified and trained staff. All of our staff must successfully complete pre-camp staff training, pass background screening, and become members of Girl Scouts of the USA.
