Camp Coleman is situated on 110 acres along the banks of the winding Cahaba River, just 29 minutes northeast of Birmingham and less than an hour’s drive for over half of the members. Established in 1925, it’s one of the most historic Girl Scout camps in the United States! With its convenient location, Camp Coleman is the perfect spot for experiencing the outdoors including swimming, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, or just floating down the river in an inner tube.
The cheerful barn, friendly horses, three riding arenas, and shady trails make Camp Coleman the best place for girls to enjoy riding horses. Brand-new target sports facilities host archery, riflery, sling shots, and hatchet throwing. There’s also a large open-air gymnasium with a stage and indoor climbing wall that is the perfect place for theater, skits, and group games. A campfire circle directly on the riverbank, a historic swinging bridge, and several destination hikes round out the perfect camp experience for all program levels.
Program Possibilities: Horseback riding (reservations required), swimming, climbing wall, archery, riflery, sling shots, hatchet throwing, canoeing, kayaking, lazy river tubing, fishing, riparian habitat hunt, ecology, nature hikes, crafts, plant identification, star-gazing, camp beautification, skits, theater, group games, teambuilding, outdoor skills, cookout, campfire, marshmallow roast, and badge work.
