Butternut Springs serves all girls, grades 2-12. 60 mins from Chicago. Come for a great camp experience. Swim, hike, canoe or find some special program options! Make Butternut Springs your summer home, make new friends & lifelong memories!
Camp Butternut Springs is located just outside of Valparaiso, IN. It’s situated perfectly in the backyards of our members in Indiana and is easy to get to from just about anywhere in the Chicago region. The camp has an archery range, swimming pool and shower house, a pond for boating, and numerous hiking trails.
If your girl is entering grades 2-12, we’ve got an exceptional experience just for her. All programs include the outdoor activities she’ll love: swimming, cookouts, songs, campfires and making new friends. Girls will learn to work together to solve problems and plan their week. They can try hiking around camp or try out the low-element challenge course. Girls may also experience one night of sleeping in pink tents that they pitch with new friends for the "All Camp Sleep Under the Stars” campout in the athletic field.
Brownie campers will sleep in buildings, while older campers (Juniors and older) will be either in a building or platform tent, depending on the program. Campers will stay with other girls their age; counselors will be in the building or a nearby tent. All living areas include modern restroom facilities.
