During the 2017 season, we will offer just one session:

Session I -- June 26 - June 30, 2017

Locust Shade Park is located in Triangle, Virginia on Route 1 across from Marine Corps Base Quantico.  The Park Manager, Park Rangers, and their Staff have always welcomed us with open arms and have been more than helpful and co-operative.

The Camp is run by volunteer Directors who are annually trained by the Girl Scout Council of the Nation's Capital.  Girls are grouped in UNITS consisting of up to 15 girls and are usually supervised by 2 adults, and 2 Program Aides.  The Program Aides (PA's) are teenagers going into 8th grade or higher.  Most of them are earning their Girl Scout Program Aide patch or are working for volunteer hours for school or for Scout Badges.  PA training is available prior to camp so that they know what to expect when they spend a week with their young charges. 

The hours of operation for camp sessions are from 9:00 am until 3:30 pm.  Transportation to and from Camp is by car pool only.  Campers may not be dropped off before 9am, nor may they be picked up before 3:30pm.  The drop-off/pick-up area is the 3rd parking lot on your left as you come into the park. 

Our all-volunteer camp staff works hard to provide your child with an outstanding camp experience for an extremely reasonable price.  Working with the girls is a rewarding experience and many of our volunteers return for another year.  Won't you consider becoming a volunteer also? We provide all the training you will need.  No experience necessary!

We hope to see both you and your child this summer!
