How does Camp work?  

Camp runs 9 am until 3 pm each day for the full week.  Your camp day will be full of arts and crafts, singing, games, science, outdoor skills, cooking, dancing, new friends and fun; all lead by highly trained Camp Aides (Girl Scouts in 7th grade and older) with Adult Volunteer helpers.


Campers are in grade-level units (based on their upcoming grade in the fall), starting at first grade, all the way through 6th grade.  Plus, you can request to be in the same unit as your troop-mates! 


Girls entering grade 6 will also participate in Leader in Action (LiA) award workshops.


Girls will earn parts of badges & journeys, too—links are posted on the website after camp. 


There are also units for:

  • Tagalongs (3-5 year old children of volunteers, for when the volunteers are on site)
  • Boys (6-12 year old boys of volunteers, for when the volunteers are on site)
  • Camp Aides in Training - called PAITs, grade seven and above

Permission Form

WOW, that's a lot of information, documents, forms, and stuff!  Why?

(You have no idea how much time, paperwork, documentation, and meetings happen  behind the scenes so we are ready for camp, whew!)


So why all the paperwork?  So we are as prepared as possible, and everyone has a great time as camp, of course!

We are Girl Scouts, after all!

What else should I know?

  • Transportation to and from camp from Lake Oswego & West Linn is available!  Look for the option to include busing in our Registration system.
  • Campers must bring lunch, snacks and a water bottle to camp. (Unfortunately, we cannot be a peanut-free camp).
  • All Campers and Adult Volunteers get a free T-shirt.
  • You can purchase Willolinn hooded sweatshirts when you register
  • Each year's theme and T-shirt design is created and chosen by campers the summer before. 
  • Our theme this year is "Most Wanted CA's", because we love our Camp Aides!
  • We LOVE and NEED Adult Volunteers! You know you want to have fun, too! (and we treat our volunteers right - coffee?  Yes, please!  Breakfast snacks each day, of course)!   Please check out more information about volunteering opportunities here
  • Need even more information and details about what the girls do each day?  Check out our Campers page!
  • Campers in 4th grade units and above can stay Thursday afternoon and evening for a special Campfire Celebration, and campers in 5th grade and above can stay Overnight!  Many younger campers anticipate the summer they can stay for Campfire & Overnight, it is a special and fun privilege!   More information on the Campfire and Overnight below.
