Camp is a magical place! Join us for a week of fantasy and fun as we explore Camp Stonybrook with a magical twist.
Along the way, you’ll see some familiar faces, hear some of your favorite camp songs and join us in laughter and fun. It’s your summer, so camp like a Girl Scout!
While we can't hold hands while skipping to our next activity or sitting close around the camp fire, we can still make new friends and spend the summer together—even if we're physically apart.
We've started the Summer Camp 2020 Facebook Group to serve as our virtual campfire! Any Girl Scout member (regardless of council or location!) can request to join.
Each Friday, we'll post the schedule for the next week. We'll do outdoor activities, crafts, campfire recipes, and more! Plus, there will be a few surprises and familiar faces along the way.
For privacy, posts in the Summer Camp 2020 Facebook Group will only be visible to those who join the group. If you don't have a Facebook account, you can start one for free at facebook.com! Otherwise, we'll post replays below that you'll be able to access without a Facebook account.
Join us every day Monday through Friday for camp activities!
The 1 pm sessions are recommended for Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors (grades K-5) and the 3 pm sessions are recommended for Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors (grades 6-12), but all are welcome for each session!
Join us on Mondays as we go through different tiers of outdoor living skills for all ages. Follow along while you watch the video and then give it a try!
Learn the basics of knife safety and make your own paper pocket knife. Then, join Duckie as she shows you how to carve a soap sculpture using a plastic knife!
Take your pocket knife skills up a notch as Yakker teaches you how to whittle safely.
Tune in to Facebook live on Tuesdays for our art programming. There will be live sessions with our camp staff where they show you the arts of camp!
Re-create the cute stick bug looking creature we all love. You'll use pipe cleaners or wire, beads, a few fake leaves and florist tape to make your very own.
Who doesn't love a cool plushie? Cut out and sew together your very own stuffed owl using felt or other scrap materials. Are owls not your thing? That's cool, you can sew whatever fantastic creature you want!
No adventure is complete without exploring the outdoors. Join us on Wednesdays as we take you through the trails of our camps—with a twist! Each hike we’ll share some activities you can do on your own, wherever you are.
There's lots of little creatures living all around us and it's time to get a close up. Go on your own minibeast hunt to see what you can find!
Join Ember on a night hike you can re-create at your own home!
Thursdays are for cooking out! Grab your ingredients and gather round the campfire (or kitchen) for a play by play of how to make some delicious campfire meals and sweet treats.
Looking for a great breakfast recipe you can make over the fire in no time? Look no further! These breakfast burritos are delicious and easy to make. Then, finish off your meal with a favorite dessert - monkey bread!
What's better than the classic lasagna? Dutch oven lasagna, of course! Learn how to make this yummy campfire dinner, and follow it up with some baked apples on the fire.
Finish out the week by joining our experts in the field of STEM! While most people are encouraged not to try things in their living rooms, you’ll be able to challenge yourself to some pretty awesome science and engineering projects on Fridays.
