Activites in the out-of-doors and camping is a great way to build new skills, get a sense of community, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Those who develop the deepest appreciation for the environment are usually those who have had many opportunities to experience the natural world. Whether you go for a day, a week or longer, Girl Scout camping gives you an opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun—always under the guidance of caring, trained adults. Every girl should have a chance to camp!
Our goal is to help girls and adults feel comfortable in an outdoor setting and to learn how to think, not what to think. Our Girl Scout Troops along with the adult leadership will be able to use the forest as a window to the world. It is a place where girls and adults of all ages can become aware of, appreciate, and understand this complex world we live and develop attitudes that will lead to actions that will resolve environmental issues. Nature is the best place to learn more about our human senses: touching,tasting, hearing, smelling, and seeing. Our properties give you a place where you might focus your eyes on the many shapes that define both our natural and man-made environment.
Girl Scouts of Louisiana – Pines to the Gulf will consider use of the camp properties by outside organizations if council requirements are met.
Girl Scouts of Louisiana – Pines to the Gulf has four camp properties, all of which have wooded areas, open areas, and some type of overnight accommodations. All of our properties provide girls and adults with opportunities to investigate environmental issues and encourages them to make informed responsible decisions concerning timber, water quality, and wildlife management.
Other activities that can be enjoyed by all are hiking, bird watching, canoeing, archery, crafts, plant identification and cooking. And of course, from May 1st - September 30th of each year swimming is available at Camp Bon Temps and Wawbansee. Why not give it a try!
