Summer is rapidly approaching, and parents are looking for a fun, safe environment for their girls. The good news is that girls can spend their summer at Camp Carlson making memories to last a lifetime.

Camp Carlson in Bristol offers fun and challenging activities for all girls in grades K-12. Operated by Girl Scouts of Connecticut, Camp Carlson is licensed by the State of Connecticut and accredited by the American Camp Association, which shows a commitment to offering high quality programs, meeting safety standards, and following the best business practices.

At all of the Girl Scouts’ day camps, girls can take part in new programs while participating in all of the traditional activities camp has to offer. Girls can sample culture and learn different skills in outdoor cooking, food prep, safety, and take away a passport filled with recipes to take home with the program International Food Traveler, chart the stars, build a rocket, and then pack their gear with the Trip to Mars program, and refine their outdoor living skills in fire building, shelter making, and trail signs at Girl Scout Survival Camp.

Throughout the summer, girls will develop leadership qualities, learn and practice outdoor skills, receive instructional swim, and more! Younger girls begin their camp experience by leading songs and playing games. Girls in grades nine through 12 can participate in a number of leadership programs.

Each member of the summer camp staff has been carefully screened and chosen for their skills and experience. All staff receives more than 30 hours of training in child development, teambuilding, safety, and risk management.

All girls in grades K-12 are welcome at Camp Carlson, which offers bus services from many local towns. The camp will be hosting an open house at its facilities May 1 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Visit for more information and directions.
