Resident Camp is a great place for every girl to discover the wonders of the outdoors and the adventures that await. From archery and water sports, to rock climbing and horseback riding, we have just the camp program for her! Cook over a campfire, make crafts, and go swimming—all in keeping with Girl Scout traditions of learning new skills, singing songs, earning badges and making awesome new friends. Plus, girls say camping is their most memorable outdoor experience in Girl Scouts. After all, there's no place like camp!

ACA Accredited


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.
