This will be our eighth year hosting camp. We started with Brownies here in our own back yard to give them a safe, familiar experience near home. It worked out so well, we decided to do it again. And again.
Each year we grew, with more courageous and fun-loving young ladies joining us.
And now, here we are.
We believe we have something special down here in the Four Corners...
something rather wonderful.
We hope you'll come and share it with us.

Girl Scout camp brings together two of my favorite things in life: outside and youth. Well. That's not entirely true. To be honest and fair, I also dearly love mysteries, unabashed silliness, and a healthy dose of new experiences.
I've worked with youth off and on for quite a while. I'm a mom of three inventive kids: two boys and one girl. I'm absolutely passionate about creating opportunities for young people.
I was a Junior Girl Scout for a couple years way back when. Now, I am a proud veteran and mom to a bright young lady.
Camp for me is giving young women the chance to participate in adventures they may not get to experience otherwise. It is also about young women lifting each other up and teaching them to love and respect themselves.
I think of my role at camp as being a safety chaperone, girl-power mentor, and crafty engineer.
I have so much fun at Girl Scout Camp seeing these young women learn about themselves and their relationship to the world around them.
"I've been to Girl Scout camp once and it made me feel more comfortable taking care of myself in the wilderness. It really gave me more confidence in myself."
-Adaline, aka "Addy-Cat"
"I've been to camp four times. Rafting was awesome because you got sprayed and you hit lots of bumps and you got to yell really loud with all your friends."
- Sarah, aka "The Squeaks"
"I've been to camp twice. Girl Scout camp is the best because you get to be active, play new fun games and use teamwork to solve science challenges. Plus it's fun sleeping in a tent with your friends because you laugh all night for no reason."
