GSNorCal Property Rentals
GSNorCal maintains 8 beautiful residential camps and 6 program centers in the San Francisco Bay Area that are available to rent for most of the year except summer months when most camps are used for our Summer Resident Camp programs. Hidden Falls is available for summer rentals.
From exploring the Pacific coast to camping in the redwoods or seeking adventure from a high ropes course, sea kayaking or a ferry ride, GSNorCal properties are an affordable gateway to connect with the outdoors either through site-based programs or offsite exploration. Camp accommodations vary from cabins to tent cabins or pitching your own tent. Options for cooking include outdoor cooking areas with coverage from the elements or a commercial kitchen with dining hall, depending on your groups needs. Whether you are a troop, school, family or church group, GSNorcal properties are a great choice for your next trip, program, training or outdoor retreat.
All non-profit organizations and non-girls scout groups must provide proof of liability insurance coverage of up to 1 million dollars and name Girl Scouts of Northern California as an additional insured. For more information, inquire with our reservation team.
Diversity and Inclusion: Girl Scouts of the USA and our council, Girl Scouts of Northern California, value diversity and inclusiveness; our staff and volunteers are representative of the diverse communities that we serve. Girl Scouts does not discriminate on any basis, including age, race, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity.

Your camp memories may last forever, but our camps need your help!
The reality of bringing camp magic to lives of our girls, families and troops translates into significant hours of behind-the-scenes labor and materials to keep our sites maintained and repaired. The very thing that draws you to our camp properties - that remote beauty, the sense of escape into nature - means we have to work extra hard to keep up with the toll that Mother Nature takes on our amazing camp properties. Help keep our campfires burning for years to come and for future generations of Girl Scouts.
