Where Will I Sleep?
Campers stay in open-air cabins or teepees with up to five other girls. Nearby there's a covered area for cookouts, running water and pit toilets, so you'll find everything you want is close by. The open air cabin shown in the photo slideshow above is a great example of how close you'll feel to nature, while knowing you're protected from the elements. In case you're wondering but afraid to ask, the answer is: Yes! All the bunk beds will include a mattress for cozy nights.
What'll I Eat?
All meals are served family style, so you'll be able to get your fill after a busy day. Girls sit with other camper groups so it's easy to make friends and hear about what everyone saw, did and learned that day. Our skilled kitchen staff prepares tasty, healthy meals with multiple options to choose from every meal. Our cooks are also experienced at accommodating food allergies, so don't worry about not finding something you can eat! Click here to see a sample menu.
What'll I Do At Camp?
Since Robbinswold is right on the saltwater beachfront at Hood Canal, there are things to do here that you can't get anywhere else! Below is a sampling of some of the activities that'll make your summer at Robbinswold a blast:
- Nature programs
- Marine exploration
- Arts and crafts
- Campfires and cookouts
- Sleeping under the stars
Don't forget, campers in grades 4 and above will get to go on an overnight trip, either on our upper property or on Hood Canal.
What's The Beachfront And Backcountry Like?
With a mile and a half of beachfront on Hood Canal, campers get the chance to play and learn in an incredible intertidal zone, which is great for exploring marine life across several habitat types. Since Robbinswold is on the Hood Canal, it'll also give you a better sense of the environmental impact we all have on Puget Sound.
Girls are often greeted when they wake up by the sounds of a seal or otter splashing about on the water. Campers get the chance to head out for day, overnight or multi-day trips (depending on the type of camp) by canoe or kayak, letting them discover many more incredible wildlife and sea creatures.
Walk away from the water and you’ll discover more than six miles of undeveloped and wild trails on our upper property giving you the chance to see the splendor of the region. These acres provide great backcountry experiences while still being close to camp. The upper property also offers a fresh water lake and several camp-out locations that give campers a unique wilderness experience.
Make Lifelong Friends
From the moment they arrive at camp, girls begin working together as a team. Camp groups start off getting to know each other, talking about what they want to do while they're at camp, choosing what kinds of food they want to cook, working together on common unit Kapers (chores) and making agreements on ground rules for the group.
Your group might also choose to go further than the general camp program and work on specific camp beads, which you can earn and are given at the closing camp fire ceremony. During your stay, you'll work alongside both other campers and the camp staff on group dynamics and help build a better community together.
What Traditions Does Robbinswold Have?
The Robbinswold lodge is a gorgeous central gathering place with amazing acoustics for camp singing and a view of Hood Canal from steps away. This camp is well-loved, with continuous volunteers (many former campers) who have a lifetime of memories and have helped keep Robbinswold facilities in excellent condition with obvious and loving care over time. Because of the love and care our community has for this special Hood Canal location, much tradition and knowledge is passed from generation to generation.
During the summer girls can participate in a weekly "Rock-2-Dock" challenge where you swim from the dock to Barnacle Bay. You can also attend early morning activities like polar bearing or sunrise painting, and of course our closing campfire ceremony where special songs are sung and beads are presented to all of the campers for their weekly accomplishments.
Some of the yearly programming that keeps our Robbinswold family growing and connected include: family camp, two work parties, Lilliwaup community day camp, summer camp and troop and service unit camping. To find out more about any of these traditions, please contact Camp Director Kate Tegeler.

"My daughter had an amazing experience at Robbinswold. She loved the counselors, the activities, the place...she has not taken off her bead necklace since camp! She especially loved some of the camp traditions, including Dock to Rock. She was so proud of that. I think the fact that water is such a huge part of Robbinswold, the girls really love that. I can only say that her Robbinswold experience was 'magical,' she did not stop talking from the moment I picked her up until we arrived at the ferry. She loved all the counselors. Well done Girl Scouts!"
