Winter? Absolutely. Spring? Definitely. Summer? Certainly. Fall? Unquestionably!
Go ahead and pick your season because no matter when you visit Brandenburg, you’ll be enchanted.
Located in Dane County, Brandenburg is a popular destination for Badgerland Girl Scouts. It’s just about 30 minutes north of Madison on 178 acres that includes hiking trails meandering through the forest and beautiful Lake Katrine for canoeing and boating adventures. Since there are four camping units at Camp Brandenburg, you may run into other troops there too. What a great opportunity to make new friends and share a camp fire. Come for a troop day outing or plan an overnighter.
Camp Brandenburg is available for Troop and Girl Scout usage.
