The primary purpose of the Arnaz Program Center, located on 36-acres near the beautiful Ojai valley, is to serve as a platform for different age-level troops to engage in outdoor education, place-based learning and environmental education through a variety of activities that reflect the interests and needs of the girls and the skills and abilities of the adults who support them. 

Since its dedication in November of 1982, thousands of Girl Scouts, non-profit organizations, and private parties have enjoyed the beauty and enrichment of programs and outdoor events at the Arnaz Program Center.
