There’s an adventure for every girl at Girl Scout camp! Located minutes from Manchester, NH, and set along the shores of Sebbins Pond, Camp Kettleford provides positive, lifelong memories for campers. All activities are girl-led, meaning campers help choose their adventure such as discovering nature, cooling off with water games, practicing archery, horseback riding, hiking forest trails, kayaking, boating, swimming, and more! Girl led, cooperative learning, and learning-by-doing are all a part of the Girl Scout camp experience. One-week programs offer late night activities on Wednesdays for campers and their families, and two-week programs include a late-night experience and an overnight stay at Camp Farnsworth. We want every girl to be able to participate in the fun of Girl Scout camp, that’s why we offer financial assistance for qualified families. Camp Kettleford provides exciting opportunities to try new experiences, meet new friends and explore the outdoors!
Open to all girls in kindergarten (entering in fall 2018) through grade 10, including those who have never participated in Girl Scouts.
