Learn Tennis This Year at Camp Merrie-Wood with professional tennis instruction thanks to the generosity of the SBM Charitable Foundation! ALL girls – Non Girl Scout, too, can become a part of the Merrie-Wood family. Camp activities include making crafts, cooking over a fire, and stomping through the brook.
Girls get to explore the mighty seven acres with their individuality and creativity through traditional camp activities and fun themes for each week. Girls in grades 4 and up get an opportunity to try archery and a one-night overnight on selected Wednesdays, which takes place in unit shelters or under the stars (weather permitting). Girls in grades nine through twelve can participate in a number of leadership programs. These programs focus on leadership development, teamwork, skill-building, and practicing being a great role model while also enjoying the thrills that camp has to offer!
Camp hours are Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Before care is available at 7:30 a.m. for an additional $50 per week. After-camp care is also available until 5:30 p.m. for an additional $50 per week.
Bus service is provided within or near East Hartford, Ellington, Enfield, Glastonbury, Hartford, Manchester, South Windsor, West Hartford, Wethersfield, Windsor, Windsor Locks, and Vernon.
Open Houses for Camp Merrie-Wood is Sunday, April 30 and Sunday May 21, from 3:00–5:00 p.m. Bring your whole family to tour the camp, do a fun camp activity or two, ask questions, and register on the spot. It will be a little sneak peek to summer!
While some people still think of Girl Scouts as just cookies, campfires, and friendship bracelets, Girl Scouts in Connecticut are so much more. Girl Scouts are big thinkers, groundbreakers, and role models. Girl Scouts design robots, earn badges, learn financial literacy skills, and improve their communities through take action projects—and they sell the best cookies on the planet! When she’s a Girl Scout, she’s also a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™.
We are Girl Scouts of Connecticut. We’re more than 47,000 members strong – girls and adults – who believe that every girl can change the world.
We’re part of a sisterhood of 2.7 million around the globe. It all began more than 100 years ago with one woman, Juliette Gordon Low, who believed in the power of one girl. We continue her vision of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. At Girl Scouts, we believe that there’s a chance for every girl to do something amazing.
