Our Camps

Camping is a great way to build new skills, make new friends, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Whether girls go for a day, a week, or longer, Girl Scout camping gives girls the opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun.

Camp Adahi
Camp Adahi is located on 900 wooded acres atop Lookout Mountain. The camp features a junior Olympic-sized pool, a lake, six miles of hiking trails, and an equestrian center. Shelter Rock, a natural amphitheater, has been a popular place for girls since the camp was built.

Camp Tanasi
Camp Tanasi is located near Andersonville on Norris Lake. Camp Tanasi is 461 acres of beautiful wooded property with cabins and tents, a waterfront program area, pool, archery, hiking trails, climbing tower, and a challenge course.

Camp Wildwood
Camp Wildwood in Johnson City is located on 12 acres of woodland held in trust by The Harris Foundation. The camp is next to the service center, so it's easy to access and close to everything. Camping in the platform tents and single cabin is offered seasonally.

Reservation FAQs

How do I make a reservation for one of the camp properties or activities at camp?

Go to our website. You’ll choose the units, activities, and any add-ons and complete your reservation. If you have trouble, email info@girlscoutcsa.org or call 800-474-1912.

How early can I make a reservation?

Our camp properties open for reservations one year ahead of the reservation date. You can keep making reservations up to three weeks before you want to camp.

Are camps open for use all year?

Camp Tanasi and Camp Wildwood are available for spring, summer, and fall camping. Camp Adahi is available for spring and fall camping. Using the online registration tool, you can see which dates are available at each camp!  All three of our properties are closed during the coldest winter months to preserve equipment and property. 

Do we rent our camps to outside groups?

Yes. Nonprofits and other organizations can use our camp properties. Interested parties should email info@girlscoutcsa.org or call 800-474-1912.

My troop is camping at a GSCSA property – what do we need?

Each troop must have:

  • One Outdoor Basics-trained adult per unit who remains on site the entire stay.
  • One first aid/CPR/AED-trained adult who remains on site the entire stay.
  • All campers and adults must be registered Girl Scouts in the current membership year OR additional insurance purchased for any non-Girl Scout participants.
  • A security deposit of $100, paid to GSCSA.
  • A completed reservation and payment.
My service unit is camping at a GSCSA property – what do we need?

Your service unit encampment coordinator should make the reservation and payment as one reservation. Troop volunteers and parents are responsible for giving the coordinator all requested forms and payments. Each unit must have the same required number of trained volunteers per unit as troop camping, listed above. 

What time is check-in at our camp properties?

Friday check-in time is no earlier than 5:00 p.m. Saturday check-in time is 9 a.m. Sunday check-out time must end no later than 12:00 p.m. You may request earlier or later times during the reservation process. Please remember to allow time for clean up when checking out. 

How many people does each unit hold?

It depends on the unit. Each unit and building’s capacity is determined by the number of people that unit will sleep and the number of beds in the unit. We ask that you do not exceed this capacity, as it is designed with safety in mind. 

Can we sleep in the unit shelter or dining hall?

We discourage members from using the unit shelters or dining halls for sleeping arrangements, except in the case of emergencies, including when severe weather occurs and attendees need to move to an indoor shelter. Do not include these buildings when planning the number of people a unit can accommodate. 

When is my reservation processed?

Reservations are processed online in the order they are received. As soon as you pay your deposit, the units and activities you reserved can no longer be rented by another party.

What if I need to change my reservation?

Reservations can be changed by the person who created until three weeks from the reservation date.

What if I need to cancel my reservation?

Reservations cancelled 30 days or more before the reservation date will receive a full refund. Reservations cancelled less than 30 days before the reservation date will not receive a refund. 

When do I make my payment?

Payments should be made at the time of the reservation. Payments can be made through the online system using a troop or personal credit or debit card. Payments made with a troop check should be sent to GSCSA, Attn: Amanda M. Johnson at 1567 Downtown West Blvd., Knoxville, TN 37919.

What if I want to do archery/boating/swimming/use the climbing and rappelling tower?

You will choose these activities as part of your reservation and then we will work to provide staffing for these activities. We cannot guarantee staff availability for all activities, especially during peak camping seasons, but we will do our best to let you know in a timely manner if staff is not available.
