Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England Presents GLAMP


Warwick, R.I. (June 18, 2024)—Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England is excited to announce GLAMP! GLAMP is an all-inclusive weekend retreat for women ages 21+, a place to reconnect with nature for a good cause! All funds raised through GLAMP will bolster our camp programs and properties, ensuring that future generations continue to benefit from enriching outdoor experiences.

GLAMP is a new form of giving, highlighting our natural resources and assets and giving our community members a chance to experience camaraderie and connections. GSSNE camp properties have provided thousands of youth with unforgettable experiences—fun, friendships, and proximity to the natural world—for generations. Now more than ever, spending time in nature is linked to many positive mental health outcomes, which is critical for youth today after the trauma of COVID and our country’s subsequent mental health crisis.

At GLAMP you can expect an all-inclusive ‘choose your own adventure’ few days, finding your perfect balance between leisure and activity, connections and self-care. Throughout the weekend, all activities and programs are optional! Guilt-free reading in an Adirondack Chair or earning as many patches as you can at our many programs—the choice is yours.

GLAMP will have something for everyone! There are programs focused on arts & crafts choices (think: sip and paint), high adventure (think: hatchet-throwing), and self-growth (think: mindfulness and personal growth seminars) to name a few. The waterfront will be open for kayaking, paddleboarding, and canoeing all day. You can also drop into “Wellville” for camp beauty—think braid bar, dry manis, and reiki!

Pricing is per person and includes lodging, food, drinks, and activities for the entire event duration. All registrants will be assigned to a cabin at Camp Hoffman with power and plumbing. When you register, you will have the opportunity to tell us if you will be attending with others who you would like to bunk with, as well as specify if you have a preferred cabin. Check-in will be between 4:00 PM-6:00 PM on Friday, September 27. Check-out on Sunday, September 29, 2024 by 12:00 PM.
