Why should the kids have all the fun?
Have you sometimes wished you had the chance to be a kid again; 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 had a fabulous Winter Weekend at Camp Pondicherry! The weather cooperated and provided the perfect setting for snow shoeing, cross country skiing and, of course, trips to Reny's! Many of you asked for the recipes we served over the weekend. Lunch on Saturday was Ellie Krieger's Confetti Chili. We substituted ground beef for ground turkey to make it a little lighter. We also eliminated the chipotle pepper in adobo as we were't entirely sure of the heat tolerance of the group. To replace that smokey flavor we added smoked sea salt and mild smoked paprika.
Dinner Saturday night was also by Ellie Krieger; Pork Medallions in Cherry Sauce. We substituted the dried cherries for unsweetened, dried cranberries (don't use Craisins as they are too sweet). Someone suggested using turkey and I think that would be fabulous! If you have more questions on the food or are looking for recipes, use the contact form to the right.
Thank you to everyone for pitching in and helping to make the weekend run smoothly, Thanks too for your program suggestions. We look forward to incorporating your ideas in future events.
Stay tuned for updates on Spring Fling and Summer Camp. I should have those updates in by the end of next week.

So much to do and see in the area and hopefully we'll have stellar foliage to enhance the experience. Program has not yet been determined and will be ironed out by the board during summer camp. Stay tuned and check our Events page in early to mid September for more details on program.
