Sugar Pine has a variety of housing, and the type of housing for girls or groups will vary and depend on the session they attend. Sleeping accommodations vary from tent cabins, open-air cabins to covered wagons.

Campers who attend Sugar Pine will take a chartered bus from Alameda or Pleasanton for all sessions. We also offer a Red Bluff bus stop that will be available for sessions SP2, SP4, and SP6 only. At the time of registration, you'll choose your desired bus pick-up and drop-off locations.

Camp Director's Office Hours

2020 dates coming soon!

Camp Sugar Pine is offering open office hours for all returning and prospective campers and their families! This is a great opportunity to visit camp, see the facilities, meet the camp director, ask questions, and share any information with us about your camper.

Want to learn more about the GSNorCal camp experience? Join us for a camp information night, where caregivers, troop leaders, and girls can meet our camp leadership team, ask questions, learn more about registration and financial aid opportunities, and get all the information you need to join us for a memorable and fun-filled summer camp session!

Each camp information night will include a 30-minute presentation about each of the 4 council-run camps (Bothin, Hidden Falls, Skylark Ranch, and Sugar Pine), light refreshments, and a private space to chat with the camp directors about your camper’s special needs, if needed.

Summer 2020 dates coming soon!

Meet Your Camp Director

Kim AKA "Hollywood"

Hometown: Taunton, MA

Her Camp Cred: This is my 14th summer working in camp! I spent several years directing and overseeing Girl Scout Camps in Massachusetts, and have also been fortunate to experience working with other fantastic organizations as well. I’m so excited to be joining Girl Scouts of Northern California this year as the director at Camp Sugar Pine.

Why She's Excited for Camp: I love everything about camp, especially cookouts, swimming, and all-camp games. Most of all, I love that camp is a place where girls develop their voice and compassion, and that camp is a supportive and exciting place that facilitates growth, friendship, and laughter. The community aspect of camp is the most valuable part of the experience, and I am looking forward to seeing all the good it does for girls this summer.
