Girl Scout camp registration is open, and any girl—even non-Girl Scouts—in grades kindergarten-12 are welcome to participate. Local Council Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes (GSNWGL) proudly offers a number of unique and dynamic camp programs for all interests.
Nearby Camp Nawakwa in Cornell is a day camp which offers horseback riding, boating, hiking, art, and a number of other activities for girls in grades K-7. Camp Nawakwa’s convenient location and day camp offerings are appealing to parents and girls who aren’t quite ready for sleepaway camp. Busing to Camp Nawakwa runs from various locations across northwestern Wisconsin.
Girls looking for a longer, overnight experience may be interested in attending Camp Birch Trails in Irma, near Merrill. Camp Birch Trails has a wide variety of camp programs for girls in grades K-12 that range from three days to two weeks. In addition to traditional camp activities, Camp Birch Trails offers unique wilderness trips that have attracted girls from across the country. Campers have four types of wilderness trips to choose from: biking, canoeing, kayaking, and backpacking. “The wilderness trip programs are broken into five levels, each increasing in length and with tougher terrain,” explains Danielle Polzin, Outdoor Program Manager for GSNWGL. These trips culminate to canoeing the Boundary Waters, hiking Isle Royale National Park, biking the loop around Lake Superior, and kayaking in the Apostle Islands. In addition, a twelve-day horseback riding trip through the Badlands is offered each year. Busing to Camp Birch Trails is available from Rice Lake and GSNWGL’s Eau Claire Service Center.
