Imagine days filled with discovery and nights filled with stars as far as the eyes can see. Nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, Camp River Ranch spreads across 435 enchanting and diverse acres.
Trails encircle the pristine, springfed Lake Langlois and wind through a temperate rain forest as they travel along the Tolt River.
You'll discover more about the world, and yourself, as you explore Camp River Ranch.

River Ranch Activities
Camp River Ranch has something to offer every girl! Activities include:
- Arts and crafts

- Outdoor skills
- Rock climbing
- Horseback riding
Day campers make s’mores over a campfire together, while overnight campers share a closing campfire with their new friends and perform skits and songs.
How Will I Make Friends?
Camp River Ranch fosters an environment in which every girl is encouraged to learn about herself, gain independence and care for the world around her. Talented and professional staff from around the world undergo intensive trainings to ensure top quality programming and support for campers.
On your first night, all of camp will gather around the fire overlooking Lake Langlois where we will introduce you to the staff and some of our favorite songs, skits and claps. You'll soon feel like a part of the River Ranch family! During the week you'll have the opportunity to try many new activities, choose as a group what to cook for your cookout, make new friends and earn beads for your camp necklace. You'll leave camp with memories and adventures to reminisce about all year, as well as a couple bug bites!
What's Magical At Camp?
Fairy houses are often found scattered around camp with miniature furniture made of moss, and structures out of sticks and recycled leaves. Girls of different ages spend time using their inventiveness creating and recreating architectural works of art. Fairies spread joy and inspiration all over camp and give girls a chance to experience the magic of imagination at Camp River Ranch.
Summer mornings are a wonderful time to experience the beautiful Lake Langlois as the mist begins to rise. Girls will have a chance to go canoeing before breakfast as the lake is beginning to wake up and surround them in the morning mist. It’s a beautiful experience unlike anything else.

My daughter loved the experience she had at Camp River Ranch. She is still in contact with friends she met there, and they still call each other by their "camp names". She is absolutely wanting to attend next summer, and our youngest daughter, who also attended day camps for her age group, actually decided that she wants to join a troop this fall. You will be seeing a lot more of us at Girl Scout functions. I love that! I think it is an amazing organization that every girl should be a part of.
