Designing My Summer

A Week of Mechanical Engineering-Inspired Adventures at Ida Smith Girl Scout Day Camp 2024

 June 10th - 14th 


Ida Smith Volunteer 

Managed Camp

Designing My Summer will be produced by adult volunteers from the San Francisco Service Unit.


2024 is our 3rd camp season, bringing back the rich tradition of volunteer-run Girl Scout day camps at Ida Smith. We are monitoring requirements for COVID-19, and we will fully comply with San Francisco County requirements.


 For our 2024 camp will feature the mechanical engineering badge series -  Board Game, Roller Coaster, and Model Car/Boat for Daisies, Leap Bot, Fling Flyer and Race Car for Brownies, Paddle Boat, Balloon Car and Crane for Juniors.

It isn't a Girl Scout experience without a few arts and crafts. Our activities will also help campers earn requirements for related badges. 

 Ida Smith offers easy access to nature. Campers will explore the natural habitat offered by Lake Merced and the surrounding area.

Not only will campers work together on kapers (AKA “camp chores”) but we'll also have sessions that cover age appropriate outdoor skills.

Camp Highlights

Camping is a great way for scouts to explore leadership, build skills, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Whether for a day, a week, or longer, Girl Scout camp gives campers an opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun under the guidance of caring, trained adults.

Camp is a community. The community of camp is unique; it is shaped by the physical, outdoor space of camp, the teambuilding nature of our activities, and the welcoming environment that we strive to create
