Welcome to Camp! Which Session Will You Choose?

Did you know that girls with frequent outdoor experiences are more likely to seek challenges and are better at solving problems? Qualities that will help them both academically and personally in the future! 72 percent of girls surveyed said that Girl Scouts gave them the chance to build their skills or try new outdoor activities, so why wait to sign up you daughter for a 2017 resident camp session?

Registering is easy! Registration for resident camp can be done online at any time by going to, or via a paper resident camp registration form found on the same website. Campers registering online are able to reserve their camp spot immediately, while camp registration via fax or mail can take up to five business days--so don't wait!

Your registration will include the camp session, camp T-shirt and patch and if you registered before February 1 your special edition camp socks!

At camp girls have the opportunity to learn new things, make new friends and have the summer they'll never forget. Here are a few of the new summer sessions Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council (GSSJC) is offering girls this year:
