Girl Scouts Heart of New Jersey (GSHNJ) camps provide the opportunity for girls to develop a sense of responsibility, become more independent and, most importantly, have fun! All three of GSHNJ’s camps are American Camp Association (ACA) accredited and offer girls an enriching summer camp experience in a relaxed, non-competitive environment. Girls entering grades 1-12 can choose from one or more of the camps operated by the GSHNJ which welcomes all to participate in our summer camp programs. All camp programs are based on the values of the Girl Scout Promise and Law and our carefully screened and trained staff works with girls in groups to help plan and carry out each day’s activities. Girls do not have to currently be a Girl Scout to join the camp experience.
