Camp Butano Creek is owned by the Girl Scouts of Northern California. This summer resident camp program is operated by volunteers within the council, under the supervision of council administration. However, you do not have to be a Girl Scout or even live in Northern California to attend Camp Butano Creek. All girls entering grades 4-12 in the Fall are welcome.
Our program is geared toward promoting self-esteem in an outdoor setting, including hiking, cookouts, campfires, arts and crafts, games, singing, science and nature. With the beautiful Pacific coastline just minutes away from our site, we are able to offer exciting and unique marine activities including: surfing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, horseback riding along the beach and tide pooling. Along with special activities throughout the coastal mountains, such as: backpacking and field archery. Campers entering 12th grade may enroll in our Counselor-In-Training program, and campers entering 11th grade can sign up for this program's wait list and will be placed as space permits starting February 1st of each year.
