Camp Lachenwald

Join Girl Scouts from all over USAGSO as we explore the Castles at Camp Lachenwald!  This year we will be staying at the Oberreifenberg Youth Hostel in Schmitten, Germany located to the north of Weisbaden. Just 40 kilometers from the Frankfurt airport, our camp is tucked amongst castle ruins just steps from the Reifenberger Wiesen nature preserve.  Campers will explore nature, castles, and history while making lifelong friendships and Girl Scout memories.

Registration will open soon!

When: July 29 to Aug 3, 2018

Where: JH Oberreifenberg Limesstrasse 14, 61389 Schmitten, Germany

All families are welcome to apply for a USAGSO Campership. USAGSO Camperships range from $50 to $250. They are awarded on first come, first serve basis, while funds last.
