NOTE: According to Girl Scouts - Diamonds council policy, all adults registering for this overnight event must be a registered Girl Scout member and have a current background check on file with the council.


Come out to Camp Cahinnio to plan and build a sea-worthy boat made entirely of cardboard and duct tape. In teams of 3 or 4 Girl Scouts, you’ll be constructing and racing your boat to the soggy finish. All participants should come prepared to build a boat and get wet. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd speed winners in each age group as well as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd for overall design.

During and after the races, enjoy other STEM, aquatic and other traditional camp and outdoor activities.

Families welcome!

Overnight accommodations are available to troops and families. Cahinnio cabins and platform tents are available to rent. Each cabin and platform tent sleeps 4. Current Girl Scout memberships and background checks will be required for any adult choosing to stay overnight. Troops and families are also welcome to bring their own tents and camp on site. Please eat before arriving Friday night.
