Leadership Programs

Become the leader you always knew you could be.

All leadership program applications are due April 1, 2020

Are you ready to take your leadership journey to the next level? Whether you want to be a camp counselor, teach girls to ride and care for horses, learn life-saving techniques at the pool, or help girls climb high on a ropes course, GSNorCal has a leadership program for you.

Research shows that Girl Scout campers do better than their non-camper peers at leadership, teamwork, confidence, and perseverance, and Girl Scouts who participate in our leadership programs receive even greater benefits. Regardless of your career aspirations, a camp leadership training program will enhance your resume and build skills for the future!

Leadership programs are by application only and there are 3 steps to complete for all Counselor-in-Training and Wrangler-in-Training programs.
