About Summer Camp

Click here for the 2020 Summer Camp Guide!

The crackling sound of the first fire you built by hand. The feeling of the waves against your kayak. What was unforgettable about your childhood summers? At Girl Scout Camp, your camper will be the main character in their own adventure. From archery to horseback riding, marine biology to backpacking, campers challenge their limits in unforgettable ways. You will be amazed at the confidence your camper brings home!

At Girl Scouts of Western Washington Summer Camps, we strive to create an inclusive and supportive environment for our campers and our employees, regardless of birth gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, cultural heritage, ability, economic status, or family dynamics. We hire staff who reflect the diversity of our camper community and provide inclusivity training to all camp staff prior to the start of camp.

RW_Lodge

Camp Robbinswold

Campers stay in open-air cabins or platform tents with up to five other girls. Nearby there's a covered area for cookouts, running water, and pit toilets, so you'll find everything you want is close by. Open-air cabins make campers feel close to nature while knowing they're protected from the elements. In case you're wondering but afraid to ask, the answer is: Yes! All the bunk beds will include a mattress for cozy nights.

All meals are served family-style. Campers sit with other camper groups so they can make friends and hear about other's experiences at camp. Our skilled kitchen staff prepares healthy meals with multiple options to choose from. Our cooks are experienced at accommodating special dietary needs!

Camp St. Albans

Campers stay in living units such as open-air cabins, platform tents or indoor sleeping cabins.

Our youngest campers stay in the Pixie living units – this means indoor units where you'll sleep on mattresses on the floor, just like a big slumber party! The Pixie units are a perfect introduction to camp for first-time campers because they're carpeted and have heat and cubbies. Bathrooms with showers and flushing toilets are just a few feet away. Counselors sleep in a connected foyer in case the campers need anything at night.

Campers eat most meals together family-style in the Lodge of Nations. Our skilled kitchen staff prepares healthy meals with multiple options to choose from and are experienced in handling food allergies. Campers give the food 4 1/2 out of 5 stars!
