Summer Camp Advisories (as of 7/9)

The safety and security of our campers is our primary concern. We appreciate your understanding and trust in the Girl Scout Camp team. Please reach out to reghelp@girlscoutsaz.org or 602-452-7030 for additional questions or support. 


Shadow Rim Ranch Reopens after Backbone Wildfire Closure

Shadow Rim Ranch will reopen and resume summer camp for Week 5 (July 4-6 & 7-9). The Backbone wildfire is 76% contained, and heavy smoke is no longer a concern. Camp staff are looking forward to being back on-site and seeing campers and their families!


National Forest Closures

We’re aware of and following the National Forest closures due to fire danger, dry conditions, and persistent wildfire activity as firefighting resources are scarce. Prescott National Forest is now open and there are no closures currently affecting travel to/from GSACPC camps. 

Summer Camp Season is May 31 - July 30, 2021

Summer camp, now more than ever, is a crucial part of Girl Scouting. Being outdoors and away from technology will allow campers to continue building connections and social skills, discover themselves while exploring nature, and challenge themselves in new ways. It’s an opportunity to be bold, be brave, and unlock endless potential.

This summer is going to be a little different, like most things this past year. However, the magic of summer camp will remain – friends, activities, counselors, and each camp’s special creatures (Chepi, Willamina, Charlie Chuckwalla, and Mogie) are waiting for you! If you do not know them, this is the summer to learn about where they came from and who they are!

Camp Maripai Horse Program on Hiatus

Our Council’s number one camp priority in 2021 is ensuring that we can offer a safe summer camp experience to as many girls as possible, no matter the circumstances come summertime. To plan for multiple scenarios while implementing new safety guidelines and limited capacities and keep all camps safe, affordable, accessible, and well-staffed, we made a difficult but necessary decision to forego the Camp Maripai horse programs for the 2021 summer season. Camp Maripai is preparing exciting supplemental opportunities that are more adaptable to the planning requirements this year, and can’t wait to see campers return! We are hopeful that this is a temporary hiatus and we can bring the horse program back in 2022. We also hope that families will understand and that their daughters will join us for the same enriching and supportive experiences they've come to love at Girl Scouts Summer Camp. 


750+ Cookie Reward: Donation to Camp Maripai

Cookie bosses who sell 750+ boxes can still choose to make a donation to Camp Maripai in celebration of this year's theme, Hope the Horse. All donations will still be utilized to help girls attend Camp Maripai now and in the future.

 

I Camped All Four Patch

Don’t Forget!

By visiting any of our properties for any program, you can earn the camp’s patch, and if you attend a session at every camp, the four patches complete the "I camped all four patch."
