Summer Camp

Summer camp is a Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois tradition, and it's calling YOU! Camping is a great way for girls to explore leadership, build skills, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Whether for a day, a weekend, or longer, Girl Scout camp gives girls an opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun under the guidance of caring, trained adults.


Resident Camps are offered to girls entering into second grade and up. And this year, even Daisies can participate by attending the Family Camp! Camps range from mini-sessions to week-long sessions. Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois 2022 Resident Camps are being offered at Camp Ondessonk in Ozark, Illinois; DuBois Center in DuBois, Illinois; Land for Learning in Makanda, Illinois; and Camp Torqua in Edwardsville, Illinois. Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois Resident Camps are girl-led, meaning girls will plan many of the activities with their counselors/volunteers, taking advantage of the resources available at the campsite.

Day Camp is for girls in kindergarten and above, with activities on two or more consecutive days for three hours or more. Girl Scout Day Camp is held in a variety of locations across southern Illinois. The occasional overnight camp may be offered. Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois Day Camps vary in length and age groups served, so read about each specific camp to see if it fits what you are looking for! Learn more!
