A summer camp operated by Girl Scouts stands out because activities are girl led. Guided by staff, campers of every age are empowered as they learn and practice creative thinking, leadership and decision-making skills.
At Amity Acres Day Camp in Barnegat/Waretown, girls age three through ninth grade and their brothers, have the opportunity to try new and exciting experiences, explore the wonders of nature, enjoy traditional camp activities and create cherished memories that will last a lifetime. For many girls, Amity Acres Day Camp is their first experience with archery, climbing wall, zipline, team building and STEM programming. Amity Acres Day Camp also offers specialty camps in the areas of equestrian, cooking and technology. In addition, leadership certification programs are available for girls entering eighth grade and older.
Amity Acres Day Camp is accredited by the American Camp Association, meeting the highest safety, health and quality standards in site management, program delivery, transportation, administration, personnel and health care. All Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore camps follow ACA guidelines and state laws in addition to guidelines provided by Girl Scouts of the USA.
