The Adventure Begins Here
Camp Minsi - Girl Tested, Girl Ready!
A Scouts, BSA Summer Camp in Pocono Summit, Pennsylvania

Summer camp is the pinnacle of Scouting’s outdoor program. At Camp Minsi, Scouts have opportunities to experience a variety of exciting outdoor activities and adventures. We are excited to give girls in the Scouts, BSA program opportunities to add to their skills, to pass requirements for rank advancement and earn merit badges, and (most importantly) have fun! Located on the shores of Stillwater Lake in the heart of the beautiful Pocono Mountains, Camp Minsi is centrally-located near three major interstates and is easily accessibly from almost anywhere in the northeast region.

The camp has a strong record of quality girl-tested programs, enhanced girl-ready facilities, and a great girl-led camp community. You can learn all about the various summer camp programs offered at Camp Minsi by exploring the camp's website and resources located at www.campminsi.org.

  • Exciting Programs - As with all of Scouting, Camp Minsi's existing and time-tested programs are relevant and appealing to both young men and women. Programs highlights at Camp Minsi include: aquatics on Stillwater Lake, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, mountain biking, small-boat sailing, tree-top adventures, outdoor skills, arts and crafts, nature studies, shooting sports, and so much more. Camp Minsi’s Trail to Adventure is a special program designed to help newer Scouts advance in the early ranks on the trail to First Class. Camp Minsi has been serving girls in the Venturing program for over 20 years and were excited to expand our programs to girls in the Scouts BSA program starting in 2019. Girl troops are welcome to register and participate in all of the weeks of summer camp programs offered at Camp Minsi.
     
  • Quality Facilities - Camp Minsi features eleven troop campsites with 37 individual patrol sites. Each campsite is equipped with the latest BSA canvas wall-tents with internal metal frames on raised wooden platforms. Tents hold two cots which provide housing for a Scout and her buddy. Each site also includes newly-renovated comfort stations with private flush-latrine facilities and running water. Our centrally-located shower house provides individual indoor shower stalls with separate sections for men, women, boys, and girls. Camp Minsi also features a spacious dining hall that serves three delicious meals a day along with a deluxe fruit and yogurt bar at breakfasts and salad bars at lunch and dinner.
     
  • Experienced Leadership - Girl leadership has been a central part of Camp Minsi for generations. Our camp director, Lisa Empfield, has been leading the staff for over a decade along with a team of strong female leaders and role models in our dining hall, health lodge, first-year camper program, high adventure treks, and all throughout camp. Camp Minsi strives to provide a girl-friendly camp environment that is fun, welcoming and meets the needs of every Scout.

A week of summer camp at Camp Minsi is truly a week of living the Scouting life. Prepare for a week full of new adventures and great fun - sign your troop up for a week of summer camp at Camp Minsi today. We truly hope you'll join us in 2022!

Questions? Our friendly and enthusiastic summer camp staff is always available to answer your questions, share information on Camp Minsi's programs, and help your unit prepare for a week of camp. We'd be more than happy to come visit a troop meeting to give a short presentation on what a week of summer camp at Camp Minsi has in store for you and the girls in your troop. Or if you want to see the camp in person, our staff is also available to schedule a personal tour of our camp facilities. Feel free to contact our camp director, Lisa Empfield, at campminsi@minsitrails.org with any questions or to set-up a visit.
