Camp


The Camp Pathway captures participation in outdoor programs, such as resident camp, day camp and group camping weekends.  It allows girls to participate in the outdoors and/or focus on environmental education. Camping allows for flexibility in delivering the Girl Scout Leadership Experience and for girls of a variety of ages and interests to participate. The Camp Pathway is available to any girl regardless of previous Girl Scout involvement. Resident camp and Day Camp is offered during the summer, fall break and spring break. Throughout the fall and spring there are many council wide weekend offerings as well.  Going to camp is one of the most popular and recognized aspects of Girl Scouts. For many girls, camp is the first opportunity they have to experience archery, fishing, ropes course, horseback riding, canoeing, outdoor living skills and S.T.E.M. programming. Camps are available for groups to rent for a day or overnight in the off-season. Contact the Council office for renting information (405) 528-GIRL (4475) • (800) 698-0022 camp@gswestok.org

Camp Mission Statement:

Girl Scouts Western Oklahoma’s camps will excel in providing each girl a positive, safe, nurturing camp environment where she will discover strengths and skills for life, connect to other girls and nature, and take action for a better world.

Camp E-Ko-Wah is located near Marlow, Oklahoma in a beautiful lake front setting and serves as our resident camp in the summer season. The camp includes a dining hall, swimming pool, an archery range, crafts center and basketball courts. This facility also boasts a waterfront dock where girls can paddle-boat, canoe and fish. This camp serves as the home for our adventure challenge programs with our Low Ropes course as well as our Mid High Course.  Sleeping arrangements include tree house cabins and ground level cabins, which sleep 8-10 girls each. All units are lighted, have flush toilets and showers available. Each unit has a separate cabin in which summer camp staff are housed. They are close by and available for quick response day and night for camper assistance.

camp experiences

Resident Camp includes girls who have finished kindergarten and older. Girls camp for three to fourteen days and nights (the average is five nights). Girls sign up as individual campers or go with a buddy. The girls and their counselors/volunteers plan activities, taking advantage of the resources available at the campsite. A council may sponsor summer resident camp with a specially trained staff and facilities.

Day Camp includes girls in kindergarten and older who typically camp for three or more consecutive days for four hours or more. The occasional overnight may be offered. Girls may sign up as individual campers or go with buddies. The girls and staff plan and carry out activities. Day camping is usually council sponsored or approved, with the council training the staff and approving the facilities and site. A day camp may be at a council-owned site or a site contracted by the council.

Weekend Camp includes girls in kindergarten and above, and typically lasts for two days and one overnight. Weekend camp experiences are planned and carried out by a group of girls and their volunteers, using council-approved sites. Some weekend camp experiences are designed to include staff with program expertise—a good choice for girls and adult volunteers who may want support with their camp experience.

Travel/Travel Camping is planned and carried out by a group of experienced campers—girls and adults. The group travels by foot or human power and uses motorized or non-motorized transportation to move from one site to another over a period of three or more nights. Motorized transportation is usually a bus, van, or automobile but may also be an airplane, boat, bicycle, train, or combination of vehicles.
