Whether it’s horseback riding or canoeing or dance or drama, there’s something for every girl, ages six to 17, at one of three San Jacinto Council resident camps this summer: Camp Agnes Arnold, Camp Misty Meadows and Camp Casa Mare. Each camp has activities that match any girl’s interests and sessions to pique her curiosity. Send her to camp solo or with a buddy. Either way, she’ll come back home with new friends, news skills and lots of great memories.

Campers who visit Camp Agnes Arnold located in Conroe, Texas will enjoy a number of accommodations, including lodging near the water in a fishing village, up near the treetops in Treehouses or nestled in the middle of camp in tents, yurts or cabins.  Girls will also participate in traditional camp activities including swimming, making crafts, going on hikes and cooking outdoors.

The blossoming equestrian might enjoy a stay at Camp Misty Meadows, also located near Conroe, Texas. The Robert and Janice McNair Equestrian Center includes four riding arenas and a herd of 40 horses waiting to be ridden, loved, hugged and groomed by summer campers. Campers will also enjoy splashing around in the pool or sharpening their marksman skills at the site’s archery and rifle ranges.

The sea breeze is always blowing at Camp Case Mare. Located on Galveston Bay, campers will enjoy relaxing on porch swings located on the camp’s grounds or sailing on the bay. There are plenty of activities for landlubbers, including fencing, arts and crafts and drama.

All three camps have activities geared to every camper. With the Council’s Camp Like a Girl sessions, girls can tailor their own camping experience by choosing the sessions that they are most interested in. In addition, girls can participate in adventure trips at each camp, including visits to Enchanted Rock, Dixie Dude Ranch, Armand Bayou, Nasa and much more.

Those interested in sending their girl to camp can register one of two ways, online or by submitting a registration form through the mail.  Camp placement is done on a first-come, first-serve basis. San Jacinto Council encourages campers to register as a Girl Scout before going to camp. The fee is $12. Those who are not interested in becoming a member will be charged a nonmember fee of $75 per camp session.
