Camp Coles Trip
Camp Coles Trip, in Stafford, Virginia, was built in 1956. It was a sleep-away camp for Fairfax County Girl Scout Council, which merged to form GSCNC.
The camp is comprised of 229 acres on the shores of the Aquia Creek. The camp features lodges, platform tent and glen shelter units, primitive units, beach access for canoeing and kayaking, and an archery range. It's situated on two separate sides of the camp, Aquia and Arrowhead, which are accessible by long hike or vehicle.
Glen shelter units on the Aquia side of camp feature cots with mattresses, and the number per shelter varies. Unit names and sides are indicated on our registration website (see below), as well as exact numbers of beds per shelter.
Platform tents are taken down mid-October through mid-April.
All lodges are heated in the winter and provide year-round hot and cold water. Some outdoor units feature seasonal hot water November 1 - April 1 only. Some units also have frost-free cold water spigots year-round.
A small stack of split firewood is available at each unit.
Weather warnings are often issued by county. Coles Trip is in Stafford County. If threatening weather approaches, take shelter immediately.
Paper products (toilet paper, paper towels) are NOT PROVIDED at our campsites (including lodges).
