We are preparing to run resident camp, family camp, and troop camp with adaptations to ensure the safety of campers and staff, such as reduced group sizes, masks, enhanced wellness checks, and enhanced cleaning and sanitation. Our girls need camp now more than ever, and we are doing everything in our power to make that happen!
Ways to Camp
Camping is a great way for girls to explore
leadership, build skills, and develop a deep appreciation for nature.
We have a variety of beautiful camps and facilities throughout Utah
for you to choose from. Create your own unique camping experience,
make new friends, and have fun! Whether you’re interested in archery,
swimming, watercrafts, hiking, or adventure trips, you can explore the
world around you at Girl Scout Camp.
You don’t have to be a Girl Scout to attend. Camp is open to every girl, everywhere.

Camporee is a large Girl Scout gathering featuring fun, singing around the campfire, and other outdoor experiences held every three years at Trefoil Ranch, with the next gathering scheduled for June of 2022. We have made the difficult decision to postpone Camporee until summer 2023.
Our camps are accredited by the American Camp Association, who provide us with robust guidance on ways to safely hold summer camp. That guidance emphasizes small groups of campers, which is why we will not be able to hold our traditional large Camporee in 2022. By postponing until summer 2023, we are hoping we will be in an environment where it is safe to hold this popular event, which typically includes nearly 1,000 participants.

This report from the Girl Scout Research Institute, supported by the Elliott Wildlife Values Project, summarizes findings from a 2018–19 study investigating the impact of outdoor engagement and national outdoor badge programming on girls—including the achievement of Girl Scouts of the USA’s outdoor outcomes (PDF). Responses to 1,690 girl and 236 troop leader surveys were analyzed. Results showed that Girl Scouts is getting girls outdoors; exposing them to new and challenging experiences; and enhancing their outdoor interest, confidence, and competence. Girl Scouting is also building girls’ commitment to environmental stewardship, which will help them engage responsibly with nature throughout their lives. In short, outdoor adventure enriches the Girl Scout experience for girls.
