Girl Scouts at Main Camp

You are here » frostvalley.org » East Valley Ranch » Scouts » Girl Scouts at Main Camp

Our Main Camp offers availability for up to 650 guests, easily accommodating large councils yet also providing a personalized experience for individual troops. Each weekend, as you work towards the badges listed below, you will also have access to our camp favorites – climbing, archery, arts & crafts, and seasonal favorites such as apple cider making, canoeing, cross-country skiing, and snow tubing. $155 per person includes programs, lodging, and meals. After completing a Girl Scout weekend, you’ll receive a Frost Valley patch (unique each year, see the bottom of this page!) and work toward the indicated badges, which you can obtain from your council.
