Camping Like a Girl Scout

Mark your calendar! Registration opens for Summer Camp on January 30th, 2023 at 6:00 a.m.

The spirit of every Girl Scout comes alive at summer camp! Nestled on 245 acres wooded acres in New Liberty, Iowa, Camp Liberty is a special place for all girls to explore the outdoors and just be themselves. Summer camp programs are designed to challenge girls to find independence, create friendships, and take risks in a safe and supportive environment. Whether she’s climbing to the top of the high ropes course for the first time, starring in an all-camp skit, hitting a bullseye, or steering a canoe, she’s answering the call to adventure!

NEW Lodge

Camp Liberty is a premier summer camp, hosting thousands of girls from across the region each year. Our highly trained staff ensure a high quality program that is secure, safe, and supportive. Boasting American Camp Association Accreditation, Camp Liberty is designed and equipped to create a life-changing experience that supports the emotional and physical well-being of every camper.

Overnight Accommodations

Camp Liberty offers a variety of accommodations that allow campers to be close to nature while still experiencing some of the comforts of home. 

Modern Cabins

Clover, Violet, and Sunflower cabins are newer additions to the property and are climate controlled. The cabins have a large bunk room and sleep 20 campers in bunk beds. Camp counselors sleep in a separate room adjoining the bunkroom. The cabins also have full restrooms and electricity. 

Mini Cabins

Outpost and Prairie’s Edge units have mini cabins that each sleep four campers on cots with mattresses.  Camp counselors stay close by in mini cabins of their own. These units have full restroom access. There is electricity in the units, but not in the individual cabins.

The Ridge is home base to our mentoring programs during summer camp. This unit has mini cabins that each sleep four campers on cots with mattresses. Camp counselors stay close by in a room of their own. In front of the mini-cabins is a large cabin used as the unit house, which is climate controlled and has a full restroom. The large cabin has electricity, but there is no electricity in the individual cabins.  

The Woodlands replaces Trail’s End. This new unit welcomes campers to experience the joys of sleeping in nature with modern amenities like electricity and modern bathrooms. Camp counselors stay nearby in an individual cabin.

Platform Tents

North Star sits right next to Flint Lake and uses the Swift Learning Center as the Unit House. North Star has canvas tents. Camp counselors stay close by in their own tent. This unit has port-a-potties. There is electricity in the unit but not in the individual tents.

Mini Barns

Horseshoe Bend is our new equestrian unit, replacing T-Pass, just across the path from our Equestrian Center. Thanks to lifetime Girl Scout Rachel Wheeler, and our other generous donors, campers will be staying in mini barns! Each barn can host six campers. Camp Counselors stay in their own mini barn. This unit has a full restroom. There is electricity in the unit house.

How to Register

Individuals
Girl Scouts attend summer camp on their own, at a time that fits their schedules. Girls do not need to attend with their troops to experience the fun of Camp Liberty. Because most girls are attending individually, camp is a great opportunity to make new friendships that will last a lifetime.

Buddies
Girls are invited to bring friends to summer camp! Their buddies can already be members of Girl Scouts, or they can invite a friend who hasn’t joined yet. During the registration process, there will be a field to indicate a buddy who is signing up for the same camp session. Both campers will need to have their buddy listed when registering to be paired together. Groups of three or more cannot be guaranteed.

Non-members
Every girl is invited to summer camp! Whether she is attending on her own, or as a buddy, she can find the perfect session for summer fun. For non-members, the Girl Scout membership fee is only $25 and opens up the opportunity to join outdoor events throughout the year. Any girl who joins to attend summer camp does not need to join a troop, but our membership team is happy to help her find a troop.

Payment

To accommodate all of our families, there are three pricing levels. Choose the tier that is most suitable for your family. Each household makes this decision, and additional financial documents will not be required. We want to make sure every girl has the opportunity to explore the outdoors! When you register, you will be asked to select the tier your family can afford:

Tier A reflects the true cost of camp, including staff expenses, maintenance, food, program, and supplies.
Tier B is a partially subsidized rate but closely reflects the costs associated with the camp.
Tier C is our standard subsidized fee, supported by other revenue sources, donations, and grants.
