Summer camp is a Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois tradition! 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.
Girl Scout Camp is being planned for summer 2021! Watch for exciting new opportunities to be shared soon.
Day Camp is for girls in kindergarten and
above, with activities on three or more consecutive days for four
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!
Resident Camps are offered to girls
entering into second grade and up. Girls camp for three nights to a
week. Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois Resident Camps are offered at
DuBois Center in DuBois, Illinois, Camp Ondessonk in Ozark, Illinois,
Touch of Nature Environmental Center in Makanda, Illinois and Land for
Learning Institute on an expedition to the 11 Point River, MO. 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.
Financial assistance is available for those who qualify. If you would like to help another Girl Scout have the opportunity to attend camp, please contact us and make a donation to our campership fund.
