LOCATED at historic Camp Arequipa in Fairfax, California, Arequipa Day Camp is a Girl Scout summer day camp operated since 1960 by the volunteer efforts of three local Girl Scout Associations in conjunction with Girl Scouts of Northern California Council.

COME HAVE FUN WITH US! Our camp offers girls who are 5 or older through the summer after 5th grade:
Archery • Swimming • Outdoor Cooking • Nature Activities • Hiking • Girl Scout Program • Arts & Crafts • Singing • New Friends & FUN!

DURING the summer of 2020, we will present four 5-day sessions to accommodate the demand for quality camps for girls in Marin County.

The session dates are:
  • Session I: June 15-19
  • Session II: June 22-26
  • Session III: July 6-10
  • Session IV: July 13-17

Camp Arequipa places campers through a LOTTERY process, from all campers who apply during the regular February application period. Full-Time adult volunteers and their children are guaranteed a space in camp (per admission guidelines).

All Campers/ Aides/ ANTs /Full-Time Adults must also register as a Girl Scout ($40 fee for girls, $25 for Adults) if not currently registered.

ANT (Aid-in-Training) Program
We have a leadership program for girls who have completed 6th grade, and who have previously attended Camp Arequipa at least one summer as a camper. The ANT program will be offered in 3 sessions (please select either sessions II, III and IV only in preference order)


Unfortunately we will not be holding an in-person camp at Arequipa for 2020.

We are busy planning a 'Virtual Arequipa Experience' for July, that will incorporate some of the things we love about Arequipa (girls will get a 'care package' including shirt, patch and some supplies). We hope this will help to keep our girls connected until 2021, when we hope to be together again.

For those girls who wish to learn more about our plans for the July online programming, stay tuned. (We will email once we have more details in place). The cost is $25 per girl, and will be covered by your deposit made (if any).

Refunds can be requested by emailing Donations are gladly accepted. We will destroy mailed checks and forms, and refund fees paid by PayPal back to PayPal accounts.

We plan to hold a portion of our ANT training online this summer, with a follow-up in-person training one weekend during the school year. ANTS who cancel will be included in the lottery for 2021, but please be aware that another group of girls are coming up next summer and we anticipate large wait lists. We recommend you begin taking the training this summer. Girls will need to participate in all components of the training (online and in person) to complete the training course.

Older girls and Adult Volunteers will receive an invitation to help run our online experience. Watch your email for details.

We know that many girls are tired of online work right now but we feel the experience we are planning will be a chance to revisit some of Arequipa while we wait for 2021 - and a chance to see their Girl Scout friends again.
