About Our Camps

Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council offers four camp locations. Each camp has a special and unique personality created by its specific location, facilities, activities, and camp staff! 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, culinary arts and swimming lessons at Parsons Leadership Center. Of course, all activities are weather permitting and some require girls to be a certain age or grade to participate.

With a variety of activities for girls to try, we know you’ll find the perfect camp for you.
