Girl Scouts Arizona Cactus-Pine Council offers three Resident Camp locations. Each camp has a special and unique personality created by its specific location, facilities, activities, and camp staff!
Each camp offers a variety of activities for girls to try. Activities include arts and crafts, outdoor cooking, hiking, archery, games, singing, and more. In addition, each camp offers specialized programs like horseback riding at Camp Maripai, canoeing and rock climbing at Shadow Rim Ranch and the challenge course and ceramics at Willow Springs. Of course, all activities are weather permitting and some require girls to be a certain age or grade to participate.
- Camp Maripai is an 80-acre camp situated at an elevation of 6,000 feet and bordered by the Prescott National Forest. It is home to our spring, summer, and fall horse programs. Saddle on up and move ‘em on out!
