"Come with me where the fire burns bright, we can see much better by its own light.
We can find more meaning in a campfire's glow, than we've ever found in a year or so."

Girl Guides and camping have always gone hand in hand. Camping teaches girls valuable life skills and gives them confidence in their abilities. Most Guide camping takes place during the fall, winter and spring seasons.


Check this page regularly as we add resources to help Guiders plan amazing camping and outdoor experiences with their units!
