Summer Camp: Home Edition

In Utah’s stunning, natural environment, girls develop a strong sense of self, gain practical life skills, become resourceful problem solvers, and cultivate healthy relationships by living and working together.

After Girl Scouts of Utah announced the decision to cancel all summer camp programs through August 16, 2020, the Outdoor Program team created new ways to engage with our Girl Scouts, troops, and families. We are excited to offer virtual opportunities for girls and troops this summer.

All outdoor program registrations and forms will be housed in UltraCamp - Girl Scouts of Utah's Outdoor Program registration system. Manage your UltraCamp account here
