Do you long for a place your daughter can be part of a designed community where safe fun and spiritual growth happen simultaneously?
There’s a window—a season of life—where our daughters are becoming young women while still holding onto elements of being little girls. Fort’s Girls Camp is built around that idea. Fort is a place where growth happens—spiritually, relationally, emotionally. It’s a place for friendships and faith to blossom and grow. Girls Camp is everything your daughter (and you) hope it could be.
New in 2023 – Two different weeks to choose from!
First time camper?

Horsemanship Classes and Lessons
Horsemanship Classes and Lessons are an optional add-on for Girls’ Camp. Fort Wilderness is a member of the Certified Horsemanship Association and we follow their standards and techniques in order to promote a fun, safe, and educational experience. Classes are spread out over four days, weather-permitting.
RODEO GAMES (+$140)
Cowgirl Up! This class offers a chance for campers to learn about the fun sport of rodeo. Each class is one hour of mounted games and learning skills needed for rodeo life, such as barrel racing skills, roping, and much more.
TRAIL CLASS (+$100) FULL!
Designed for the weekend rider, campers are on a horse for approximately 45 minutes per day in God’s creation. Some riding instruction is given, such as crossing trail obstacles, controlling your horse at different gaits, and basic horse info. It’s all done in a laid back, fun Fort way!
We welcome your family to drive your child up to Fort, take a tour, and meet your counselor. You may also utilize our transportation. It is available for our summer youth programs, with pickups on opening Saturday and drop-offs on closing Friday of camp. We use a coach bus and/or vans, all chaperoned by trained Fort Staff.
Cost: +$125 Round Trip / +$75 One Way
