Have your own Girl Scout Camp adventure!

Gather your “troop” of friends, learn new skills, and earn badges – just like a Girl Scout!

Camp 479 Activities

We are still fine-tuning the badge experiences, activity stations and other elements of the evening, but we are sure you and your "troop" are going to have s'more fun at Camp 479!

Every guest will receive an honorary Girl Scout sash and have the opportunity to fill it up with commemorative badge buttons and fun activity stickers to show off all your accomplishments!

Badge Experiences
Girl Scouts are always up for trying new things and learning new skills, and when they do, they earn badges! At Camp 479, you'll get a taste of the skills and adventures girls experience in Girl Scouts and you too will earn a badge!

Your badge opportunities will include these classic camp activities:

  • Archery
  • BB Gun target shooting
  • Hatchet throwing
  • S'mores in the outdoors
  • Knot tying
  • STEAM 
  • First Aid
  • Arts and Crafts - in this special activity, guests will contribute to a collaborative craft to be displayed at our Camp NOARK in Huntsville.

Fun Patch Activities
When Girl Scouts take part in activities just for fun, they often receive a fun patch. There will be plenty of opportunities to collect fun patch stickers at Camp 479 at activities like:

  •  Camp set-up competitions - how fast can you roll-up your sleeping bag and stuff it back in its bag, or pitch a tent, or other similar feats!
  • Gorp station - make your own custom trail mix (GORP=Good Old Raisins and Peanuts)
  • Cookie Cornhole
  • Signature cocktail - sample a special drink featuring Girl Scout flavor vibes
  • Photo booth - group your troop for a fun, photo memory
