Council Camping Programs


At Girl Scouts of Nassau County, the health and safety of our members is our number one priority. Due to the uncertainty of community transmission levels and state and local health mandates in the coming months, we are currently not offering Traditional Troop Camping and any Council Camp Programs. Be sure to check our website and/or our Camp Blue Bay Facebook for updates.

Please check back for updated information regarding Council Camp Program availability.

Summer Troop Adventures

“A program designed especially for your Troop!”

Feel a little nervous about camping? Not sure it’s your “thing,” but, your Troop is excited and the girls would love to camp together in the summer time? Not to worry, we have the solution.

Summer Adventures allows your Troop to take advantage of the activities offered at summer camp, including swimming, boating, nature, arts & crafts, campfires and more. We make it easy. Once registered, we will design a program especially for your Troop. Troops only need to have one adult per each 8 girls attending and no training is required.

When you arrive, a summer staff member will greet you, assist your group in settling in and be with you throughout your stay to guide you through the activities. No need to worry about food; all meals will be served in the Dining Hall. Accommodations are in tents (4 girls per tent) or dormitory style indoors (12 girls to a room)

Who: Girl Scout Troops Brownie – Ambassador
