As of April 25th, we have changed some units and age groupings to make it possible for more girls to attend camp this summer. We’ve even added some programs! For 2014, we have hired one staff of awesome camp counselors. They will work at Pennyroyal in June and Bear Creek in July.

Resident Camp Session Information


You may request more information here with our Camp Inquiry Form.

Also if you know a girl who would love to go to camp - your daughter, sister, cousin, niece, grandchild or just a cool girl you know you may fill out the 

Camper Referral Form

and let us send them information. It's a cool way to let a girl know you care about how she spends her summer.

Our summer camps are magical places where learning and growth go hand in hand with fun and friendship. Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana offers girls a wide range of summer resident camp programming options. For information on your Area Day Camps please check out the day camp page.

General Information

Summer resident camp is held at two of our camping properties.

  • Camp Pennyroyal, a beautiful wooded camp, 15 miles south of Owensboro, KY featuring hiking trails and a peaceful eight-acre lake for swimming, canoeing, and Funyaking (sit on top kayaks)
  • Camp Bear Creek, houses our summer resident camp Bear Creek Aquatic Camp.  It is located on a bay on scenic Kentucky Lake about 45 minutes south of Paducah, KY, features 200 acres of waterfront property and two miles of shoreline that create the perfect setting for Kentucky's only Girl Scout aquatic camp.
  • Sessions last between 3 to 12 days with special sessions and Troop Core Camp offered throughout the summer at both camps

Who gets to come to camp?

Any girl entering first grade through twelfth grade is welcome at camp. You don't need any camping experience to come to camp, and you don't have to come with a friend.  There will be plenty of new friends and opportunities to learn and grow while you’re at camp!

What will I do at camp?

All sessions will let you experience things like swimming, boating, arts & crafts, playing games, eating meals in the lodge, cooking out, singing camp songs, acting in skits at campfires, learning camping and life skills, and exploring camp.  However, each session also has a special focus designed for different interest and levels of experience.

 What kinds of programs are there?

NOTE: The programming we offer at both of our summer resident camper is a direct result of feedback received from girls, parents/guardians, volunteers, leaders, camp staff, and Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana staff.
