Why should the kids have all the fun?
Have you sometimes wished you had the chance to be like a kid camp; enjoying outdoor fun, singing by the campfire, swimming, hiking, laughing with friends or just plain relaxing with a good book? Then Women's Camp is the place for you!! Get reacquainted with your inner child, explore your creative talents, and meet new friends.
Women’s Camp is an organization for women over 18. We hold seasonal camping events at affordable prices so you can get away from it all, guilt free! If you cannot afford all or part of the registration fee, our Campership page has information on the Eunice Anderson Campership Fund which provides financial assistance for those in need.
Our events are held at Girl Scout properties throughout New England, complete with indoor and outdoor sleeping accommodations, hot showers and lots of activities. Think of it as your time to do as much, or as little, as you like. Your camp fee includes lodging, meals and some activities like arts and crafts, canoeing, book club, hiking, singing, relaxing, camp fires, and card and table games. Planned activities may vary with each event but no matter what, there is always something for everyone!
Part of what makes Women's Camp so different is that much of our program is unstructured. Campers are encouraged to bring crafts to share, lead impromptu hikes or arrange excursions off camp and invite others to join, etc. Each of our locations offers much in the way of off-camp attractions and activities. Women's Camp is whatever you make it, it is never the same twice and it is always a great time!

We are waiting to hear from the staff at Camp Pondicherry as to whether or not the camp will be plowed and ready for us this weekend after Tuesday's blizzard. There is more snow forecasted for Friday. We are expected to have a go / no go decision on Thursday. Please stay tuned for more details.
We are still on for this weekend despite the impending storm. Please stay tuned. I will post again on Friday morning should there be any changes. You should have received contact phone numbers in your confirmation packets to check on status and weather on Friday. If you have not received this information, email me at Womenscamp@gmail.com for details.
This past summer, Women's Camp participated in a service project to benefit "Days for Girls International." This involved making kits to give young women in Africa for when the get their periods. Some girls quit school at this age because they have no sanitary supplies. The kits have 8 washable pads, two liners, and an attractive bag. We made 111 finished pads and cut enough flannel for perhaps 75 more. Below is the letter we received in response to our participation:
Dear Marita and friends,
Thank you so much for all the work you did on behalf of Days for Girls on your sewing weekend. Not only did you complete enough liners for 14 kits; you also helped us well on our way to doing much more, thanks to your flannel fabric donations and precutting.
This is a new venture for us, and we hope to contribute 50 kits this year from our NW Suburban Boston Chapter. We're well on our way! You helped us out in an additional way, by being the first sewing group; we have gotten some hints from your working sessions, how to effectively organize such sewing days in the future.
Thanks again for all your help
