In a world filled with smartphones, tablets and digital-at-your-fingertips-everything, we need to make conscious choices for ourselves and our children. Girl Scout summer camp provides a much needed and timeless experience where girls can grow and learn together.
Our camps offer a classic summer camp experience with an emphasis on independence, living as part of a community in the outdoors, and of course, leadership. Girl Scouts of Central and Western Massachusetts is committed to providing campers with a safe place to play, learn, and grow in an environment where respect and responsibility are valued.Girl Scout Camp provides an environment where a girl can unplug from her busy year-round schedule and just be a kid. Where else can girls paddle in the sun after breakfast, shoot arrows before lunch, sing countless songs, eat a family-style meal in the dining hall, and sleep under the stars, all in a girl-only environment?
Take Your Friends to Camp!
Everything is more fun when you have your best friend with you, so why not bring them to camp? If you’d like to attend camp with a buddy, you’ll both need to sign up for the same program (and for day camp you must be in the same grade) and request each other as buddies when registering. One buddy per camper. Placement with a buddy cannot be guaranteed.
Health & Safety Regulations
The American Camp Association (ACA) is the world’s premier organization dedicated to promoting the safety and quality of camp programs. As part of the accreditation process, many of GSCWM’s camps voluntarily participate in periodic visits by trained and certified visitors with the purpose of verifying our compliance with high standards in the areas of personnel, program administration, and facility safety. Bonnie Brae, Green Eyrie and Lewis Perkins are officially accredited; however, all GSCWM camps maintain the same high level of standards.
In addition to ACA and Girl Scout standards, all GSCWM camps comply with regulations of the MA Department of Public Health and are licensed by local boards of health. For more information about these state regulations, call 617-624-5757. Policies for camps are available upon request.
