Camp Crowell, in Oakton, Virginia, was given to the Fairfax County Girl Scout Council in 1948. This Council was later merged to form GSCNC.
The camp is comprised of 68 acres and features lodges, picnic shelters, glen shelter units, adirondack units, tree house units, and primitive units, hiking trails, a large green area, and low ropes course.
All lodges are heated in the winter and provide year-round hot and cold water, with the exception of Pavilion lodge, which has an outdoor frost-free cold water spigot year-round. Units feature seasonal hot water November 1 - April 1 only.
A small stack of split firewood is available at each unit.
Weather warnings are often issued by county. Camp Crowell is in Fairfax County.
Paper products (toilet paper, paper towels) are NOT PROVIDED at our campsites (including lodges).
Gregg is on call for any issues before or after you arrive. His contact information is available on the camp information packet you will receive when you reserve a campsite at Coles Trip.
There's no need for you to check in with Gregg when you arrive at camp, but if you'd like to leave him a note (regarding things that need to be fixed- or just a "thank you"), a caretaker's mailbox is available on the circle by the New Lodge.
The Cross Country Trail passes near Camp Crowell and is a great hiking endeavor.
