Summer Resident Camp

Resident camp programs at Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana provide girls with the opportunity to reach the end of their comfort zone and stretch into new opportunities.

Each camp location offers something unique—a different program, sleeping accommodation, tradition, or even state!

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 and Camp Juniper Knoll. Learn more about each location. 

Where do campers sleep? Lodging for resident campers is predetermined and noted under each program in the annual Camp Guide. Learn more about the different types of lodging at our camps.

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