Summer Resident Camp

Camp WaBak

GSSC-MM offers resident camp in the Blue Ridge Mountains at Camp WaBak. Since 1948, Camp WaBak has been serving girls with opportunities for unique outdoor experiences. At Camp WaBak, girls cook outdoors, swim in our in-ground pool, canoe on our lake, hike on our trails, and splash in our waterfalls where each week is themed to offer a unique, immersive experience.

Our Equestrian program is always one of our popular sessions. In addition to time in the saddle, girls will spend time on the ground learning safe handling by understanding how horses think and act. All challenges are appropriate to the skill of the rider and safety and fun will always be the key focuses.

Tripping programs offer an opportunity for older campers to spend part of the week at camp and part of the week off on adventures ranging from zip lines and white water rafting to sightseeing in Savannah and Cherokee. Art-themed and sightseeing based tripping programs have also been added for girls who want to get off site but can do without the adrenaline rush of extreme adventure activities.

WaBak is now offering additional leadership opportunities for older campers. The CIT I program has been expanded to three weeks, and CIT II and Counselor Apprentice programs have been added to the repertoire. Opportunities to earn the PA pin, complete Red Cross Babysitter training, and work toward the College Knowledge badge are also available.
