About the Camp

Camp Timber Ridge has been a magical spot for generations of Girl Scouts since 1924. From the camp’s pristine lake to the archery range and challenge course, the swimming pool and the STEM and Design Labs, where campers practice science and engineering, Camp Timber Ridge is the hub for exploring and trying new things. Campers come back to Camp Timber Ridge week after week and year after year. It is a tradition that prepares them to lead in the future.  This year we are celebrating our 100th year!
