Camp

Imagine a summer experience with no screens and social pressures. One that connects girls with nature and new friends, builds leadership skills and healthy relationships, and allows girls to have a fun in a supportive, carefree environment. That’s the experience girls have at Girl Scouts of Maine’s Summer Camps!


Summer Camp Update Regarding COVID-19

Although we are months away from our summer camp season we know how concerned everyone is about the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and want to assure you that we are committed to the health and well-being of each camper and staff member. We are in regular communication with our Maine Department of Health and Human Services and with the CDC regarding the virus.

We are monitoring all official health channels and complying with current recommendations. We have every hope that there will soon be more clarity about the effects of virus containment efforts on summer plans. Meanwhile, the staff is busy preparing for the 2020 camp season at Camps Pondicherry and Natarswi.

As of now, all of our 2020 camp programs are still on!

In order to help you register with confidence, we have updated our registration guidelines as follows:

  • In the event you need to cancel your registration later due to illness or circumstances related to Covid-19, you will receive a full tuition refund (including deposit). 
  • If GSME makes the decision to cancel any camp programs, you will receive a full tuition refund (including deposit).

If you have any questions, please contact the Camp Department at 888-922-4763.
