Camp Tall Trees is a residential camp especially for girls and is organized by Girl Scouts of Northern California. Camp Tall Trees is open to girl scouts and non girl scouts alike. We aim to make it possible for any girl to attend irrespective of her families ability to pay. We may able to grant camperships to those girls who would otherwise be unable to attend.

Forest Friends Camp

Serving girls entering grades 1 thru 3 ( Daisies & Brownie Girl Scouts), this short three day two night camp are an ideal first camp experience. Girls will learn to work together while having fun. This is a great first camping experience.

 

Explorer Camp

Serves girls entering grades 4 thru 5 (Junior girl scouts). Five days and four nights in length, this camp provides a longer and more challenging experience.

The camp this year will again be based on the concept of Exploration. Our goal is for girls to discover their environment and in so doing begin to appreciate it's importance and their place with in it.

 

 

Egypt Camp

This years older girl camp (girls entering grades 6 thru 9) is themed on ancient Egypt. This 7 day 6 night camp will immerse you in ancient Egypt.

Try your hand at Hieroglyphics and pyramid building. Get creative and make your own coptic jar, explore the Egyptian fascination with cats. Did you know the ancient Egyptians were accomplished engineers? How did they build those pyramids? Explore the world of the Pharaohs and their obsession with jewelry and make up.

As always you will be able to participate in traditional camp activities including Archery, Rock Wall, Kayaking, Rock Climbing and Rappelling, Hiking and campfires.

This years wide game will require all of your skills as you attempt to recapture the rebellious Sphinxes.
