Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland Council owns six outdoor program sites available for troop camping. Each site has at least one lodge, some of which are winterized with a furnace and indoor bathrooms. Each of the sites also has other accommodations, such as cabins with a nearby water source and latrine, platform tent units and/or four-person cabin units.
Troops also may go troop camping at sites owned by other Girl Scout councils or facilities at state parks and other youth camp sites. Private places such as a farm are also possible troop camping locations.
