Summer Camp 2020

Join us for eight exciting weeks of Girl Scout summer camp — right at home!

Each themed week will give girls the opportunity to earn a badge around topics like journalism, outdoors, art, photography, theater, computer programming, STEM and more. 

Program cost includes any earned badges, a fun patch, a T-shirt, SWAPS materials and any necessary program supplies.

Bring a friend along on your summer camp adventure! When a Girl Scout signs up for a session with her friend who's not a Girl Scout (yet!), both girls will receive $10 off registration plus a patch! If you sign up as a new Girl Scout, you'll get membership for this year plus ALL of next year — that's through September 2021. Sweet!

Summer Camp Update - April 24, 2020

Summer Camp Update

Dear Girl Scouts,

Our thoughts are with all of you as you deal with the overwhelming challenges posed by our current health crisis, especially those of you who have been personally impacted. We hope that you have found some inspiration, as we have, in the stories of how Girl Scouts across our council are continuing to serve our communities in creative new ways. My personal experience hosting the Meet Up with MAJ virtual programming on Tuesday evenings has brought me so much joy and eases the stress of working through necessary decisions while keeping me grounded in Girl Scout traditions.

Speaking of Girl Scout traditions — we are creating new traditions with our reimagined 2020 summer camp experience. Gateway Council will offer virtual Girl Scout camp opportunities with at-home activities for girls along with all the favorite camp traditions like sing-alongs, talent shows and more.

Unfortunately, we cannot offer a traditional summer camp experience under the current circumstances and have pivoted to these virtual offerings, which provide new opportunities for skill-building, adventure and fun — all key components of the Girl Scout camp experience!

These eight weeklong virtual sessions make summer camp an option for EVERY Girl Scout! Whether you’re a little unsure about spending a week away from mom and dad at an overnight camp or sleeping bags just aren’t your thing, GSGC’s at-home camp opportunities bring the camp experience to girls wherever they are.

You’ll be a true camper and ready for the traditional camp experience when it’s safe for us to come together again!

We recognize that many girls have earned their way to summer camp through the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Therefore, we are offering various ways for girls to continue to use cookie rewards throughout the upcoming Girl Scout season. Girls who earned $50 or $100 camp credits will receive those credits in the form of a Doubleknot gift card that can be used toward any Gateway-led programs and events through Dec. 31, 2020. Girls who earned a weeklong resident camp credit may choose the alternative reward of a bedroom décor set, or they may save the camp credit to use for 2021 summer camp. Girls who earned these rewards will receive additional communication at a later date.

If you were considering registering for a summer camp session at Camp Kateri or Camp Kugelman don’t fret — sign up for a virtual camp experience this summer and join us throughout the fall and next year for the best outdoor and camp experience ever! We will be ready for the summer of 2021 and celebrate as Girl Scouts.

Yours in Girl Scouting,
Mary Anne Jacobs, CEO
