OUR CAMP

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 2024, we will present four 5-day sessions and one three-day session to accommodate the demand for quality camps for girls in Marin County.

The session dates are:
  • Session I: June 17-21
  • Session II: June 24-28
  • Session V: July 1-3 Older Girl Overnight Camp (Grades 9-12 only)
  • Session III: July 8-12
  • Session IV: July 15-19

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).

- Girls applying WITHOUT an accompanying adult volunteer will be included in our lottery to be held after February 29.
Our ANT program will tentatively be held during Sessions I, II and III. Pixies and Tags are accepted at all sessions.

What happens if we apply after February 29?
- Applications of adult volunteers and their children are accepted anytime, as long as we have room in camp.
- Girls’ applications received after February 29 will be added to the waitlist of those who didn’t make it into camp in the lottery, on a first-come, first-served basis based on session and age group availability. Those girls who didn’t make it into camp in the lottery do have preference over girls who apply after February 29, except that children of adult volunteers are always assured a spot at camp.
