Description: Get ready for your summer adventure! Burke Lake Adventures encourages girls to explore, be themselves, challenge themselves, make new friends, and build self-esteem while enjoying themselves at camp. Campers will learn songs, play games, make arts and crafts, gain outdoor skills, and work towards badges. Our program is outdoors and the girls participate in nature hikes. 

Activities: Outdoor skills, badge earning, outdoor cooking, arts & crafts, songs, games, hiking

Extended Hours: After camp hours will not be offered this summer.

Camp activities (including field trips, extended hours, and overnights) are offered at the discretion of the camp leadership team and may be modified or canceled to follow COVID-19 restrictions. Camp activities may not be available to all units and can be canceled due to weather or other extenuating circumstances.

Camp Location: Burke Lake Park

Bus Transportation: No bus transportation is available.

Volunteer at Camp!

Burke Lake Adventures is planned and put on each year by a group of dedicated Girl Scout volunteers! Due to safety ratios, enough adults must volunteer each year for camp to run. Unfortunately, if not enough volunteers sign up, camp will be cancelled. We need your help to ensure that camp can happen this year and that every girl has an amazing camp experience.

Benefits of Volunteering

  • Guaranteed placement for your camper(s) – bypass the lottery and get early registration access in December/January
  • Reduced registration rate – you could receive $20 to $100 off the camp registration fee!
  • Units at camp for sons and preschool-aged children of volunteers - yes, they get to come to camp too! 
  • Receive volunteer hours for training and camp days
  • Network with other Girl Scout volunteers in your area
  • Learn new skills, try new things, and take part in fun camp traditions!
