For years, Girl Scouts of all ages have enjoyed their own special days at Chimney Rock. Our nearly 1,000 acres make an incredible backdrop to a variety of programs that are educational and fun! And the fun doesn't stop when the sun goes down—our 5-acre Meadows is the perfect place to spend a night under the stars.
