Tanglefoot Girl Scout Camp in Clear Lake, Iowa
With over 3000 Girl Scouts attending camp each summer whether it is for a one night experience or as long as 18 days, the influence of camp will be a building experience for years to come.
Non-Girl Scouts and parents and families are also welcome at the camp.
Camp Tanglefoot has recently completed an extensive renovation plan, and invested more than $600,000 in new cabins, showers, maintenance shop, game court, outdoor shelter, and the unique, two-level year-round program chalet, the "Oaks". Popular activities include swimming, sailing instruction, canoeing, arts, music, bicycling, theme events, environmental projects, no-trace camping skills, an obstacle course and high ropes challenge course, and the "Leaders in Training" project for older girls.
The camp employs 30 specially trained and certified summer staff. Special programs are developed for the campers. The camp is an accredited member of the American Camping Association, and operates under the guidelines of GSUSA, the Red Cross, U.S. Sailing Association, American Canoeing Association, and The Association of Challenge Course technology.
From September to May, the camp buildings are available on a limited rental basis for meetings, seminars and retreats. The grounds are available for hiking, nature study and cross-country-skiing.
