Spend your summer building girls of courage, confidence, and character at one of our two summer camp locations, a short drive from the gulf beaches and Disney World!
Camp Wai Lani in Palm Harbor FL is directly on the Gulf of Mexico, right outside Tampa and St. Petersburg/Clearwater. Campers can take a swim in the pool, kayak on the Gulf of Mexico, visit the Marine Lab, or push their comfort zone with the Challenge Course, and more. Campers are housed in two-story buildings featuring screened-in patios on the first floor.
Camp Wildwood, our equestrian camp in Wildwood, FL is about 75 miles northeast of Tampa. Wildwood offers 589 acres of original Florida – piney woods and palmettos in sandy soil, huge live oaks with Spanish moss and marshlands. The campgrounds include an array of activities and amenities, from swimming in a Junior Olympic sized pool to the Griffin Nature Center, horseback riding, and more. Options are endless! Campers stay in cabins or dormitory style buildings.

No previous Girl Scout experience is required. Our staff come from a variety of backgrounds, those who’ve grown up at our camps, and those whose first camp and Girl Scout adventure is with us on staff. You’ll gain valuable experience working with children, working outdoors, and make memories that will last a lifetime.
