What is our day camp?  


Fort Collins Girl Scout Day Camp is:

  • Day Camp Sessions are Monday thru Friday from 9 am - 3 pm
  • A great introduction to Girl Scout camps for campers of all skill levels!
  • An introduction to Girl Scouts!  Girl does not need to be a girl scout to register, although she is asked to join GS before she attends due to insurance requirements. This costs $25 and can be done online at GSCO.
  • A fun chance to build outdoor skills!
  • The perfect place to make new friends and hang out with old friends.  
  • An awesome opportunity to build confidence and leadership skills!


Camp is also:

  • Loud!  (We'll sing you in, We'll sing you out!)
  • Messy! (If you go home clean, you have missed something fun!)
  • Crazy! (In that fantastic, silly, fun sort of way!)


New in 2021! Option to Earn the LIA pin at day camp

  • We have added the option to earn the LIA pin as part of the day camp experience.
  • This is for girls entering 6th grade in the fall interested in the path to becoming a certified PA.
  • The LIA pin is the first step towards becoming a PA (which these girls will be old enough for summer of 2021) IF they continue the training path (see PA page for training requirements of a new PA).
  • As 2021 is our first year doing this, we will be including the extra LIA tasks during "blank" time of the LIA unit of campers.  It is possible that LIA campers might need to come early (or stay late) one day.
  • The extra activities for the LIA include organizing the badge they will be teaching a younger unit at day camp, teaching the younger campers and other requirements fullfilled during normal day camp hours. 
  • To be a part of this group, during registration, select "6th grader with LIA option" instead of "6th grader".  
  • ​Not all 6th graders at camp have to participate in the LIA badge.
  • Questions? Contact registrar@fcgsdc.org 


Cool stuff we have done in the past:

  • Canoeing (Can you canoe?)
  • Swimming/wading (We hope you like to get wet.)
  • Fishing (Real fishing skills with real fish that really bite the hook!)
  • Archery (4th grade and up can get their Katniss/Miradoch fix!)
  • Knife Safety (Can you whittle a little? Come learn to use a knife safely!)
  • Team building (Everybody has fun when everybody, well, HAS FUN!)
  • Arts and crafts (So much to create and share!)
  • Beginning Compass work (You can't always rely on Google Maps!)
  • Skits! (An ancient and wondrous Girl Scout tradition.)
  • Songs! (An ancient and VERY LOUD Girl Scout tradition.)
  • ​And SO MUCH MORE!!   (Really, we can't even list it all!  Well, we have a list somewhere . . .)
