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, Camp Juniper Knoll, and Camp Pokanoka. Learn more about each location.
Transportation: You are responsible for your camper's transportation to and from camp.
Where do campers sleep? The lodging type is listed with each resident camp program listing in our camp guide. Learn more about the different types of lodging at our camps!
