Camp NOARK

Camp NOARK's 300 acres have been the wilderness home to area Girl Scouts since 1967. living units range from an air-conditioned bunk rooom to a true wilderness retreat that older girls build themselves. Campers at NOARK enjoy extensive hiking, target sports, arts and crafts, and a sisterhood in song. Camp NOARK is now home to our equestrian program. For more information about horse programming, see our Outdoor and Horse Programs page.

2021 Camp Session Types

Camp registration opens at 6am on March 1, 2021

General Sessions - Girls Entering 2nd-12th Grades
Bring your sense of adventure and your imagination! In true Girl Scout style you will flex your leadership skills as you work with your counselors to choose from all that Camp NOARK offers to plan your week. Tie dye your camp shirt, swim at Withrow Springs State Park, star gaze, cookout  your dinner, roast marshmallows,  play water games and more, more, more! We can’t wait to see you this summer.

Horse Sessions - Girls Entering 2nd-12th Grades
The Camp NOARK Horsemanship Program gives girls of all ages and abilities a chance to ride and care for horses in a safe, fun and challenging way! Girls are placed into our program based on age AND ability. Beginning, young, or nervous riders start at Level 1 and will ride at least twice during their session (riders with experience outside our program, contact us directly to be placed into a level). As riders progress, we offer more lesson time and introduce new skills. All riders will leave with a Riding Progress Report showing their accomplishments and exiting Riding Level. Girls aren’t guaranteed to move up in level each year. We teach riding from the “ground up” rather than “saddle down” and a portion of each lesson (lessons include 1-2 hours of time at the barn) is spent on barn chores because it is important for girls to learn responsibility by caring for their horses.

Arbor Dale Session - Girls Entering 7th grade +
Rising Cadettes and up with a drive for independence and adventure will begin their session at Pooh Corner while they learn the skills and plan for the living unit of their own creation! Experienced campers and adventurous beginners are welcome! Arbor Dale is a signature of the Camp NOARK experience!
