Camp Pisgah Summer Resident Camp

Every one of our camps has its own personality and special offerings! At Camp Pisgah, we know that camp can change a girl forever, and we want to make sure that our camp is the best place for you! We are based on a group decision-making model, so girls live, work and play as a group. This means they will learn and practice applying skills like teamwork, cooperation, leadership and compromise.

With us, you can enjoy a newly built rock climbing wall and low-ropes challenge course, a junior Olympic-sized swimming pool, a fresh water lake for boating or fishing, lush fields for sports and games, a petting farm and horse stables. Plus, we have acres and acres of nature therapy perfect for trail rides, hiking and natural art projects! In addition, Camp Pisgah is renowned for its spirited weekly themes and innovative program sessions. Our camp provides a safe space where girls are free to be themselves and meet new friends who share similar interests.

*All three GSCP2P camps have units (campsites) unique to their property. Most of them are cabins, while some may include platform tents, tree houses or bunkhouses. Each camp has trained counselors housed in separate quarters within the unit, close enough to supervise campers and their interactions, but sleeping in their own cabin. For some of the younger girl programs, staff actually stay in the larger cabins with their groups. Please be sure to read the camp descriptions, and remember you are welcome to attend an open house at any or all of our camps to see the housing each camp has to offer.
