*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.
