Girls kayaking at camp

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 800 wooded acres atop Lookout Mountain. The camp features a junior Olympic-sized pool, a lake, and nine miles of hiking trails. 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, and a climbing tower.

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 Girl Scout Leadership Center, so it's easy to access and close to everything.

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. 

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 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/cancel my reservation?

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

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. 

What if I want to do archery/boating/swimming/use the climbing 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.
