Thank you for your interest in The Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming (GSMW) Summer Camps!

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our “home away from home” for girls.


Each summer, GSMW welcomes hundreds of girls to camp from local Montana and Wyoming communities and from states across the country. Our goal for each girl is to have a safe, fun, and memorable experience!

We believe that the camp experience will have a life-long impact on your girl. Camp provides her with opportunities to become more independent, foster her self-esteem, make new friends, learn new skills, and develop an appreciation for the outdoors. Our traditional approach combined with a dynamic staff-team ensures the highest quality experience for every camper.

GSMW offers leadership development, themed camps, and exploration of nature for girls in grades K-12.  The summer camp program offers 4 resident camp locations.  Timbercrest Camp is just outside Red Lodge, Montana, nestled in the Custer National Forest.  Butte, Montana hosts Camp Castle Rock which is situated in the foothills of the Little Basin Valley.  Swim, Splash and Sail camp is a beachfront location on Canyon Ferry Lake just outside Helena, Montana.  Camp Sacajawea sits atop Casper Mountain with 180 acres of woods, meadows just southwest of Casper, Wyoming.  Our week long options and short stay try-its provides something for every level of camper.

As the Camp Director, I take great pride in the experiences provided for our campers.  I get to see first-hand the many benefits of summer camp for campers (greater independence, growing confidence, a sense of belonging, valuable principles of community living, a very real connection to the natural world and lifelong memories). We are very proud of GSMW summer camp program and equally of the generations of campers that have grown through our unique programs.

We look forward to welcoming your family to the Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming community!
