Ways to Camp

Day Camp
Day Camp is for girls in kindergarten and above, with activities on three or more consecutive days for four hours or more. The occasional overnight camp may be offered. GSSI Day Camps vary in length and age groups served, so read on each specific camp to see if it fits what you are looking for!

Resident Camp
Resident Camps are offered to girls in second grade and up. Girls camp for three nights to a week. GSSI Resident Camps are girl-led, meaning they plan many of the activities with their counselors/volunteers, taking advantage of the resources available at the campsite.

Outside Organization Rental Property Opportunities
Utilize our camps for your corporate and civic team building and leadership building opportunities. For more information, email customercare@gsofsi.org or call 1.800.345.6858.
