Located 75 miles north of New York City in Dtchess County, Camp Kaufmann stretches over 425 acres and features a lake, an archery range, a brand-new pool, hiking trails, a frog pond, a butterfly garden, an organic garden and greenhouse, and rope challenge courses.
Each year, our camp welcomes more than 4,000 New York City Girl Scouts. A distinguishing feature of Camp Kaufmann is that it brings together urban girls from diverse background – some of these girls have never before left their own borough, let alone experienced camp. Camp Kaufmann is owned and operated by the Girl Scouts of Greater New York, and is fully accredited by the American Camp Association.
We're proud to bring you our 2015-2016 "Get Outdoors" Guide (updated February 29, 2016), full of activities for New York City's Girl Scouts, both here within the five boroughs, as well as at Camp Kaufmann, our Girl Scout camp in Dutchess County! To download, click here.
There are lots of ways for you and girls to enjoy the outdoors. No matter the length of your experience, girls will certainly benefit from it. They can try new things, build their team-building skills, meet new friends, feel a connection to the natural world, and enjoy the fresh air.
Living in an amazing city like New York can provide so many unique opportunities, but sometimes you need to break out of the concrete jungle and enjoy the benefits of the outdoors.
