Camp Ginger Cascades
Located in the beautiful foothills of western North Carolina, just outside Lenoir, Camp Ginger Cascades is one of three outdoor properties operated by Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont. During summer months, Ginger Cascades offers overnight resident and day camp programs for girls ages 5-17. Girls do not have to be a Girl Scout to attend programs.
In addition to summer camping opportunities for individual girls, Camp Ginger Cascades also provides an excellent year-round location and facilities for outside rentals including band camps, church retreats, family gatherings, school groups and troop camping.
Founded in 1963, Camp Ginger Cascades is infused with a passion for the outdoors and is dedicated to helping young girls and women become confident and strong leaders! Being an ACA-accredited camp means parents can rest assured their child will be safe, as they develop their courage, confidence and character – without even realizing it!
