Day Camps

Girl Scout Summer Day camps are a great way to give a child her first taste of camp. Camp will give her the opportunity to make new friends, experience new things, explore the outdoors and to grow in independence.

Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York’s day camps offer a wide variety of exciting program opportunities for girls in 1st-12th grade. Each day camp has its own unique style. Activities at day camp include arts & crafts, sports, hiking, nature exploration, songs, cook-outs, campfires, all-camp activities, water play, and where applicable swimming,and boating. Girls also spend time participating in activities relating to her program’s theme. Program themes are organized by the grade that your camper will enter in the fall.

Our day camp programs are in operation Monday-Friday from 9-4 during the summer months. Early drop off and late pick up care is also available for most programs.
