Note: Camp Cahinnio operations have been placed on hiatus. The ranger will remain on-site and will provide full maintenance services for the camp, but all programming activities will cease as a cost-saving measure. No reservations will be accepted at Camp Cahinnio during the hiatus. Challenges presented by the pandemic are preventing us from large-scale use of our wilderness properties. With no donor support currently at Camp Cahinnio, or a density of usage outside of summer residential camp, the board determined that operations would be placed on hiatus. Our outdoor programming focus will remain at Camp NOARK, where our equine program has proven to be in high demand, despite the pandemic’s limitations. The hiatus at Camp Cahinnio will cease as soon as our membership numbers improve and programming needs change.
Camp Cahinnio is nestled on nearly 400 acres of woodlands near Booneville in west central Arkansas and includes 23-acre Lake Takima, swimming pool, archery range, arts and crafts pavilion, hiking trails, air-conditioned dining hall and four separate living units for campers. For those who love to boat and swim, Camp Cahinnio is known for its watersports. Lake Takima is a great place for campers to practice canoe skills and try their hand at sailing. Camp Cahinnio hosts river trip opportunities for girls entering 7th grade and above who have basic canoeing knowledge. Camp Cahinnio also offers traditional camp activities such as hiking, arts and crafts, cooking outdoors, singing and more!
Camp Cahinnio is proud to be accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA)! Maintaining an ACA accreditation requires regular reviews of our entire operation to ensure compliance with up to 300 voluntary health and safety standards in areas ranging from staff qualifications and training to emergency management. Camp Cahinnio’s most recent standards review was conducted summer 2016.
For moments both big and small, Girl Scout Camp prepares girls for anything. Plus, it's the best way to spend the summer.
