Girl Scouts River Valleys has six unique camps spread throughout Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Whether you love horses, forest trails, the lake, or pretty much any other outdoor amenity, our camps have you covered.
Located in Zimmerman, MN, Camp Elk River is less than an hour drive from the Twin Cities. It’s known best for the equestrian center and a wide array of horse programs.
Camp Lakamaga, located in Marine on St. Croix, MN, is also less than an hour drive from the Twin Cities. Girls who love water activities choose Camp Lakamaga year after year!
Camp Northwoods, located in Mason, WI, provides amazing wilderness adventures. It’s an hour drive east of Duluth and close to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, the Superior Hiking Trail, and Lake Superior. Older girls love Northwoods!
Camp Singing Hills, located near Waterville, MN, is a 70-minute drive south of the Twin Cities. With a beach on Fish Lake, this camp is known for water activities!
Camp Edith Mayo
Camp Edith Mayo, located on the outskirts of Rochester, MN, is the perfect place to experience “camp in the city.” This 40-acre property features the newly remodeled Edith Mayo Program Center which is perfect for day camps, trainings, and programming with an outdoor focus. More information coming soon.
Renting Our Camp Properties
All of our camp properties are available for rent. Troops and service units can rent our properties/locations for their Girl Scout-related events, campouts, and activities. Non-Girl Scouts can rent them too! In addition to the camps above, we have the following two properties also available to rent:
Located in Fridley, MN on the Mississippi River, Camp Lockeslea is a great place for troops and service units to rent for troop getaways, meetings, and volunteer-led camps. Camp Lockeslea is not part of our lineup for summer resident or troop camp, but a good option to bring your fellow Girl Scouts together to explore the outdoors!
Located in a city park on the St. Croix River, Sagata Troop House is the perfect place for younger Girl Scouts to get a taste of camping in a comfortable, rustic cabin with a beautiful stone fireplace. Girls can try out what it’s like to use sleeping bags, dunk bags, and sit-upons, learn how to build a campfire in the fire ring, or go for an outdoor swim. Sagata can also be used for troop/group meetings or a picnic by the river.
Each of our locations is accredited by the American Camp Association, which signifies safe, high-quality programs that meet industry and government standards.
