Girl Scouting At ACE Adventure Resort

At ACE we know girls can do anything, especially when they work together. And, when girls work together in the outdoors, there is nothing that they can’t accomplish. That’s why we have always been a strong partner and supporter of The Girl Scouts. In 2019, ACE hosted the first annual GIRL Fest event, where girls from 22 states joined together for 4 days of adventure in West Virginia. Individual troops choose ACE as a destination for badge work, STEM activities, and as a way to have FUN together in the outdoors.

Learn more about all the amazing activities ACE provides for Girl Scouts!

Plus, we’ll make your adventure easy with: 

  • Adjusted non-profit pricing
  • Preparing some, or all, meals
  • Lodging or camping
  • Professional guides & staff
  • Merit badge counselors
  • Well maintained equipment
  • Your group’s safety is ACE’s first priority

Great Activities

With dozens of activities at ACE, Girl Scouts can play like a girl by ziplining, mountain biking, stand-up paddleboarding, lake kayaking, rock climbing, paintball, or whitewater rafting.

Or, Check out our Alpine Tower or Mud Obstacle Course for the most fun teambuilding activities that you can dream of. Girls will work together to challenge each other and themselves to problem solve. And trust us, they’ll be smiling big too!


ACE is proud to offer STEM programs so that Girl Scouts can learn in the coolest classroom ever, the outdoors! At ACE, we know that hands-on learning keeps things fun, and we’re lucky to be able to show Girl Scout’s our classroom every day. Experience hydrology through whitewater rafting, explore ecology through the diverse Appalachian ecosystem, and discover geology all at ACE!

New for 2019, ACE offers a STEM Waterpark program so Girl Scouts can learn about principles of mathematics and physics that make Wonderland Waterpark operate!

Wonderland Waterpark

Spend a day or half-day playing at the most awesome waterpark ever! The 5-acre spring-fed Wonderland Waterpark is full of bouncy fun for kids of all ages (including and especially adults!). Girl Scouts will bounce, slide, zip, and play their way to a day that they will never forget.

Group Amenities

ACE is made for groups. With group lodging options ranging from rustic camping to luxury cabins, we can help your Girl Scout Troop find the best lodging option to suit your needs. If roughing it isn’t your speed, cabin tents and bunkhouse provide a great middle-ground option between camping and cabins.

You won’t have to worry about cooking while you’re at ACE. Let ACE do the cooking and prebook your group’s dining. Special pricing is available for groups.

ACE’s 1,500 acres are the home to miles of hiking and biking trails that your Girl Scouts can use for free! Grab a trail map from our Welcome Center, and hit the trails on your own. Rent a bike from us or bring your own and explore on two wheels, or lace up your hiking boots and see the sights on your own two feet.

More to love for Girl Scouts at ACE: a spacious meeting room to rent, or our entire festival grounds!

Whitewater rafting might just be the original team-building, outdoor adventure.  If not, it’s the best. ACE Adventure  Resort has been taking people rafting for nearly 40 years.  More importantly, we’ve been helping folks have fun, outside,  on their vacations for 4 decades. Let us share that same, high quality  experience with  your group this year!
