Girl Scout Programs 

Online Girl Scout Program Registration

Girl Scout Programs are developed in partnership with Girl Scouts of Central & Western MA. 

 

Camp Marshall has been working with local Girl Scout Troops since 2009. We offer programs for Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadette, and Senior Scout Troops.

 

Our programming is based on Experiential Learning model, and provides hands-on experiences with horses. 4-H programming of HEAD, HEART, HANDS & HEALTH are synonymous with Scout traditions of empowerment, values, compassion, and citizenship.

 

There is no need to worry about the weather; our programs are available all year, due to our indoor riding arena and new conference rooms!

 

Your troops' visit should be scheduled at least three weeks in advance.

 

Each student participating in activities in our horse program will need to arrive with a completed and signed waiver.

 

Horse Programs are scheduled on Saturdays between 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Our programs are $15.00 per scout, with a minimum of 10 students.

 

For our Junior, Cadette, and Senior Scouts, depending on troop size, groups can schedule an add-on a group ½ hour horse, riding lesson with their program. Group riding lessons are an additional $15 per child.

 

We would be happy to review our programming for your individual troop needs! To do so, please contact:
