Join Circle F Dude Ranch for jamboree-style action-packed weekends with your Girl Scout troop. These special weekends have been designed with Girl Scouts in mind. Our all-inclusive package includes a horseback trail ride, swimming, boating, archery session, climbing at the Alpine Tower and Giant Swing, and a campfire complete with s’mores, hayrides, and a dance party. Please note Circle F Girl Scout Weekends are for only female scouts, troop leaders, and parents/guardians.
Circle F schedules a time slot for each troop to participate at the Alpine Tower and archery, and an hour and a half block for a horseback trail ride. One week before your weekend, Circle F will email troop leaders with the rotation schedule for the Alpine Tower, archery, horseback rides, and hayrides. The Girl Scout Weekend schedule also allows flexibility for girls to connect and play with each other at the waterfront and sports fields.
Enjoy a walking trail ride through part of our 500 acres of Florida wilderness.
Make it to the top of our 60’ climbing structure or glide through the air on the 45’ swing — your choice! (See activity note below.)
Experience the excitement of the sport of archery with our compound bows. Our staff are Level I USA Olympic Archery Instructors. (See activity note below.)
Circle F’s Odyssey High Ropes course has six elements across two levels, one at about 15 feet and the other at about 35 feet off the ground. Groups or individuals may choose to pre-register for a one-hour block at the course for an additional charge of $25 per person. (See note.)
Complimentary sports equipment will be available at the camp office. You may use the basketball court, volleyball court, soccer field, kickball field, gaga pit, and tennis courts.
Relax on our white sand beach, take a swim, and bounce and slide on our water inflatables. Explore the coves of our 43-acre, spring-fed lake by taking out one of our kayaks or canoes for a paddle.
Lifejackets are required when boating or using our inflatables. Lifeguards will be on duty during specific times to guard the inflatable sections. Swimming inside of the dock area is at your own risk.
Participants are welcome to fish in our well-stocked lake, if they bring their own fishing poles. Catch and release only.
Troops may choose to participate in SWAPS if they would like.
Circle F hosts a campfire party on Saturday night, complete with a hayride, s’mores, and outdoor dance Party.
Troops stay in our rustic bunkhouse-style cabins that can hold up to 12 people in six bunk beds. Each troop will be housed together as a group. When registering for a cabin, Circle F requires at least 8 people per cabin. Learn more about our cabins and the Circle F Ranch.
Circle F provides 3 meals on Saturday and 2 meals on Sunday. Please submit dietary needs for your troop at least one week before your event weekend. We may not be able to accommodate special needs at the last minute. Read about our farm-to-table food.
