This year's camp theme is
Survivor! 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 May 28-July 21 at Camps
Covington, Marydale and Whispering Pines for girls entering 1st-12th
grades in Fall 2017, and we've even added Day Camps (July 23-28) and
some Troop Sessions this summer as well!

February!) Full payment is due with registration and registration will

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.
Bring a Friend! Non-Girl Scouts welcome!
Girl Scout summer camp is for every girl, even those not yet in Girl
Scouts! For girls new to Girl Scouting, simply include the $15 annual
national membership dues along with the camp fees/form and pay the
regular session fees.
