Want to get your troop to be active outside, AND have them earn something?

The end of summer doesn’t mean the end of camping and being outdoors! Fall is a great time to get your troop active outside and have them earn a badge or two.


Fall is a great time for your troop to go camping. Traditional Troop Camping is a unique experience planned and carried out by a group of girls and their camp-trained volunteers/leaders. Under the guidance of trained and enthusiastic adults, girls may take their first hike, build their first campfire and sleep under the stars for the first time—so cool! Girls take part in planning of meals and activities, learn outdoor skills and work as a team to enjoy a fun outdoor adventure.

And, if you’ve never been to Camp Blue Bay before and want to check it out? We have a Council Camp opportunities available for those troops that don’t have camp trained volunteers, for those troops who are new to the camping experience, and for those who just want to try a new camping experience! With our Council programs, no training is required and all meals are provided! Experiencing the outdoors can be easy and fun! Thanks to our many dedicated volunteers, our Council camp programs are hugely popular.
