Here at Frost Valley YMCA, we want to help your troop pave the way for a multi-faceted journey rich with leadership, personal growth, and the formation of strong, lifelong bonds. Our eight core values—Caring, Community, Diversity, Honesty, Inclusiveness, Respect, Responsibility, and Stewardship—are the foundation of the comprehensive programming we offer Girl Scout troops so they may continue to build girls of courage, confidence, and character. Our Main Camp offers availability for up to 650 guests, easily accommodating large councils yet also providing a personalized experience for individual troops. Rates for the weekend start at $145 per person on select Girl Scout weekends and include programs, lodging, and meals.
