Girl scouts camps

The Girl Scouts of America is one of the largest organisations for females in the USA with a long established tradition of summer camp.

With hundreds of camps all over the country, their mission is to 'build girls with courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place'.

Girl Scout summer camps are for the children to try out new outdoor experiences without worrying about the pressures of the outside world.

Many female leaders, namely Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton, are proud Girl Scout alumni and are strong advocates for the organisation.

Facilities and Accommodation

Girl Scout camps are extremely varied in size and facilities, but camp facilities are often rustic, using wood cabins and platform tents for accommodation.

Camp will offer a wide range of activities including arts and crafts, climbing and ropes, camping and hiking, horse riding and cycling and of course waterfront activities.

The camps tend to be very traditional and campers and staff return year after year to be part of tradition and the camp family.

The campers

Girl Scouts USA has over 3 million members from all walks of life, and a girl scout camp is a melting pot of culture, backgrounds and beliefs that make for truly unique and rewarding experience.

Girl scout camps will have a female only camper population, and mainly female staff (you might find male staff in certain roles too).

Applying for a girl scout camp

As part of your Camp Leaders application, you will specify what kind of camp you’re interested in working in and we will then look to match you with your preferred camp.

You will have the option to select working in rustic environments as part of your application and our team will do their magic.

Placement opportunities

We work with over 500 hundred of the best camps in America, giving you some of the highest placement chances in the industry.

Camps over in the US use a number of UK-based agencies to recruit staff and Camp Leaders has been one of the key providers for nearly 20 years.
