Resident Camp

Registration is now open for Back-to-Basics at Camp Marydale this summer! Summer Resident Camp sessions will run throughout the months of June and July. Space is limited for campers currently in grades 1-12, so don't wait to get your girl registered.

Campers will enjoy arts and crafts, horseback riding, boating, outdoor cooking, and nature, all while making new friends. While camp modifications will be in place as we continue to combat the spread of COVID-19, girls should come ready to play, explore, discover, and make lifelong memories.  

We know parents and guardians have a lot to consider during this time, but please know there is nothing GSLE takes more seriously than the safety and wellbeing of our girls, volunteers and staff. We are listening to experts, taking the necessary precautions, and implementing protocols in order to provide the safest possible experience at our beloved Camp Marydale this summer.

Camp Modifications for 2021: 

How we're keeping girls safe!

There is nothing GSLE takes more seriously than the safety and wellbeing of our girls, volunteers and staff. Several camp modifications will be in place as we continue to combat the spread of COVID-19. Changes include:

  • All camp staff will be fully vaccinated.
  • Girls will operate within age-group cohorts and receive daily health check-ins
  • Girls will receive personalized supplies to minimize sharing materials
  • All meals will take place in open air areas
  • Camp will be deep-cleaned and disinfected daily, with handwashing and disinfecting stations for girls placed throughout the property.

Space is limited for campers currently in grades 1-12, so please don't wait to get your girl registered!

Camp Financial Assistance

Any active registered Girl Scout in Girl Scouts Louisiana East may apply for camp fee assistance to attend one camp session. Please complete the Girl Scout Camp Financial Assistance Request by May 15. 

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.

Camp Accreditation

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.
