Our Beautiful Northeast Texas Camps

Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas boasts five camp locations, each with its own special charm, that offer a variety of year-round environments and experiences. The camps are a valuable resource for day trips to hike, picnic, learn about nature, practice outdoor skills, or simply see the stars on a clear night in an unpolluted sky. The facilities support overnight camping for a weekend retreat, school holidays and breaks or extended summer camping sessions.
