Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts day and resident camps are designed for girls in grades K-12 across eastern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. Campers get involved in archery, nature hikes, swimming, STEM, arts & crafts, and campfire songs. Select locations offer sailing, kayaking, horseback riding, and other specialty activities. Camp properties host summer day camps and resident camps, year-round outdoor programs, and troop, family, and group camping. GSEMA camps are accredited by the American Camp Association.
