Welcome. Camp Artemis and Artemis Leadership Training Adventure are the two parts of an exciting and innovative outdoor leadership program of the Girl Scouts of California's Central Coast. Artemis gives girls the opportunity to discover, connect, and take action leading directly to life-long leadership skills.
Camp Artemis is a week-long outdoor resident camp that takes place in the beautiful Santa Cruz mountains in Northern California from Sunday, July 20 to Saturday, July 26, 2014. Campers are girls entering into 5th grade through 12th grade. The program of Camp Artemis is based on leadership development in an outdoor setting with backpacking, sleeping in your own personal tent, archery, swimming, leadership skill building and making new friends. The uniqueness of Camp Artemis is that it is planned, implemented, and directed by girls.
Leadership is provided by girls aged 14 to 17 that have previously completed Phase 3 of Camp Artemis and have applied and were accepted into ALTA (Artemis Leadership Training Adventure). ALTA is a program that is year-long. One weekend per month this group of girls meets for training the trainer sessions, outdoor skills building, learning 11 leadership competencies, and planning our next Camp Artemis. We have created a sustainable leadership development program for girls, by girls. And we have fun!
