Summer Camp

Summer camp is a Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois tradition where girls can Go Wild! 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. Girls camp for three nights to a week. Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois 2021 Resident Camps are being offered at Camp Ondessonk in Ozark, Illinois, DuBois Center in DuBois, Illinois and Touch of Nature Environmental Center in Makanda, 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 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! Learn more!


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.
