Why Camp

Camping is a great way for girls to explore leadership, build skills, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois has a variety of facilities-from tents and cabins to year-round lodges- that are available for troops and groups to use to create their own unique camping experience or join us for council-sponsored camping events where we provide the activities and supplies. With the new activities and amenities at all of our camps, there is something for every girl!

Check out the Girl Scout Research Institutes publication “More Than S’Mores” for an extensive list of benefits when experiencing the outdoors. GSNI campers were a part of this study!
