Troop Camping

Take Your Troop Camping

One of the most popular ways girls experience the outdoors is with their troops. From  backpacking, multi-day canoe trips, backyard camping, or a day at a local park, leaders and volunteers teach girls about nature and the outdoors everyday in Girl Scouts.

All four of our camp properties and facilities are available throughout the year for troop camping. Girls can experience hiking, archery, canoeing, a challenge course, a climbing wall, horseback riding, swimming pool and zip line, depending on which camp you choose. Learn more.

Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois has several ways to get outdoors with your troop.

Take your troop camping on an overnight camping trip requires some basic trainings and then you’re ready to have an overnight adventure. Not all camping is roughing it. Many troops opt to stay in tents and learn outdoor skills. Others decided to stay in climate controlled bunkhouses and still do a variety of outdoor activities.
