Resident Camp

Exciting new features to resident camp are popping up this summer, so don’t miss out on all we have to offer!  Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana believes that getting girls outdoors is important for their personal growth at any age. Camp is a place where you can feel strong and empowered by conquering challenges and caring for others.  And this year, camp will truly be for any age!  So, whether you’re a first-time camper or a seasoned expert seeking new adventures, we will have something for you!

We are excited to be re-opening resident camp opportunities at beautiful Camp Pennyroyal this year. These one to three-night stays are perfect for a girl who is new to the camp experience or a seasoned veteran who wants a more compact taste of everything camp has to offer. Camp Pennyroyal provides campers a peaceful escape with its 8-acre lake, fern-laden trails, and some of the only freshwater jellyfish in the state.  Don’t worry, they don’t sting!  Whether you enjoy paddling in a canoe, stargazing at night on the dam, or singing songs with your fellow Girl Scouts around the campfire, Camp Pennyroyal will have something for you!

Resident camp at Bear Creek is back and we know saying good bye to camp after three or four nights was hard, so now you don’t have to!  With unit opportunities lasting up to 8 nights, if you can’t get enough of camp, we have you covered. That means you get more time to cross Kentucky Lake for an overnight adventure, to take an aqua fin around Girl Scout Bay with your new sailing skills, or to learn new ways to cook outdoors.

Also this year, it will be cool to be at camp- literally.  All units will have air-conditioned lodging for the majority of nights they stay at camp, with exceptions for tent or open-air cabin overnight camping opportunities. Rest hour just got a bit more restful!

All in all, camp is a time to gain independence, learn to set goals and work to achieve them. Our friendly and caring staff have been trained to help you develop new skills, from tying a bowline knot to living with a roommate for the first time.  Camp will teach you obvious skills like how to use a bow at an archery range, but it will also teach life skills like making friends, trying new things, and cooperative problem solving. You will learn to be a girl of courage, confidence and character who makes the world a better place.

Registration for resident camp opens Monday November 26th, 2018 and closes May 31st, 2019. We are offering different discounts for early registrations, so register as soon as possible to take advantage of the savings!
