The serene and secluded setting, far from busy city sounds, is the wonderful backdrop for Madrona Community Camp. This Girl Scouts of Western Washington facility is located on Lake Bennettsen, near Belfair, Washington. The camp's 160 acres of pine, hemlock and fir forest surround Lake Bennettsen.
Madrona Community Camp is a one-week Girl Scout resident camp open to any girl entering 2nd through 12th grade in the fall. Girls are assigned to Units according to grade level. All of the camp units are located around the lake, which has a relatively level 1-1/2 mile trail encircling the lake which connects each of the nine village units.
Campers who attend Madrona Community Camp experience a variety of ways to gain new skills and build friendships while having incredible fun. The committed and trained volunteer adults spend many months each year planning activities for a successful week of Madrona Community Camp. In the beautiful setting of Camp Lyle McLeod, girls make a variety of crafts, enjoy boating on the lake and swimming, gain confidence on the archery range and in outdoor living skills at the Margaret Scout Meadow and on the trails in camp.
Madrona Community Camp is committed to traditions, and returning campers look forward to campfires with songs and skits, improving their Margaret Scout skills and adding to the Poetree by the lake where colorful poems written by campers flutter in the breeze.
