What Resident Camp is Like

At GCNWI summer resident camp, girls can choose to stay at camp for a three-day sampler, a week, or even longer! 

No two weeks of camp are alike! On Sundays campers help plan what they want to do for the week in addition to the themed program activities for the session. 

Locations: GCNWI offers summer resident camp programs at Camp Butternut Springs, Camp Juniper Knoll, and Camp Pokanoka. Learn more about each location. 

Transportation: You are responsible for your camper's transportation to and from camp.
