Become a Part of the River Ranch Family!
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!
Be a Part of Something Big!
At Camp River Ranch every girl plays an important role in the camp community. Campers of all ages help maintain our organic garden, harvesting food planted by other Girl Scouts while learning about sustainable living and organic practices. Girls expand their palates by sampling a wide variety of herbs, vegetables, and even edible flowers!

Looking for Bus Transportation?
River Ranch Day Camp transportation is available via the camp bus. School buses are chartered for four routes in King and south Snohomish Counties. Camp provides an adult bus counselor to ride with the girls and offer program activities, songs and games designed to keep girls engaged and excited about camp or ready to share camp experiences upon pick-up. Two of the routes will run each week: odd numbered sessions are served by the #1 routes (N1 and W1); even-numbered sessions by the #2 routes (N2 and W2). Bus registration is required at least two weeks prior to the session start date. View detailed route information here. Upon registration campers will receive an additional bus confirmation packet including route maps, stop maps and time confirmations, and procedures for pick-up, drop-off and safe travel.
If you did not sign up for transportation at the time you registered for your camp session and would like to add it to your registration, please contact a camp registrar at (253) 475-0307 four weeks prior to your camper’s session. Adding transportation online is not possible after your initial registration is submitted.
"My daughter had an amazing experience at 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's an amazing organization that every girl should be a part of."
