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. Every girl should have a chance to camp!

The Girl Scout Council of the Southern Appalachians operates three camping facilities.

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. Camping in the platform tents and single cabin is offered seasonally.

Overnight Troop Camping

Troop camping is a favorite activity for Girl Scouts from Daisies to Ambassadors.

One adult with the troop needs appropriate training. See Outdoor Education for more information.

Service Unit Camps

Each year, our camps host several large service unit encampments. Troops work together to plan programs and dining.

Nonprofit Groups

If your nonprofit group is interested in making a reservation at one of our camps, please call 800-474-1912 to speak with the camp registrar.

Explore East Tennessee

Our council is rich in outdoor resources, including state and national parks and recreation areas. Take advantage of the scenic beauty of the Appalachain mountains — girls enjoy trails, campsites, and cook-out areas or discover valuable service project opportunities.

Camping at non-Girl Scout sites and camps is encouraged as long as the site you choose meets Safety Activity Checkpoints standards, and an adult camp leader has current and proper training for overnight camping.
