Summer Camp 2021: Adventure Together!

This summer, prepare for an adventure — one that's totally girl-led! Whether your girl wants to sign up for virtual options to take Girl Scout summer camp with her wherever she goes or she wants to experience the outdoors on Camp Kateri or Camp Kugelman, she can't go wrong.

Every session is unique, but she'll always experience Girl Scout camp traditions like making SWAPS, learning songs, joining in talent shows and more. Registration includes a Summer Camp 2021 T-shirt and a summer camp patch, for both in-person and virtual camps! Participants in virtual sessions will also receive any necessary nonperishable program supplies.

Not a Girl Scout yet? That's OK — all girls are welcome at summer camp! This is a great way to experience Girl Scouting and make new friends; when you want to continue, GSGC staff will help find a troop!

Important Information

Register your girl based on the grade she will be in for Fall 2021.

A nonrefundable $25 deposit is required to hold your girl's place at camp; the deposit will be applied to the overall cost.

Camp Safety

In-person camp is ON this summer! To keep campers and staff as safe as possible, everyone will follow these guidelines:

  • Campers will remain in small groups and have no direct contact with other groups during their camp stay.
  • Reduced camp capacity.
  • Meals will take place outdoors. Campers will dine in their small groups.
  • Beds will arranged so girls sleep head to toe, rather than facing each other.
  • Majority of camp day will be spent in open air.
  • Stringent cleaning protocols will be in place.
  • Masks will be mandatory indoors and when campers cannot be 6 feet apart outside.
  • Each camper will complete a seven-day pre-camp quarantine and COVID screening prior to arriving at camp.
  • Camp staff will remain onsite for the duration of camp season.
  • Social distancing will be enforced.
  • Communicable Disease Plan will be followed compliant with CDC Camp Guidelines.
Camp Open House Information Session

Excited to adventure with us but want to know more? Join us for a Virtual Camp Open House on Tuesday, March 23 at 7 p.m. Eastern and have your camp questions answered. We'll discuss topics such as COVID safety, preparing for camp and what you can expect at both of virtual and in-person camp experiences.


Is she ready for camp?

If your daughter has never spent the night away from home, you may want to start her with a day camp or a short stay such as 1 or 2 nights at resident camp. After that, she can progress into whatever length of camp she desires.

Although age is one factor in readiness for resident camp, a child’s maturity level and personality are more important indicators. Talk to your child. If she is enthusiastic about attending, she will probably enjoy camp. The following questions may help in determining readiness for resident camp.

  • Has your daughter ever been away from home for more than one night without family members?
  • Can she keep up with her personal belongings?
  • Can she take care of her own basic hygiene needs such as showering, toileting, and brushing her teeth without assistance?
  • Can she cope with unfamiliar people, new places, and group schedules?
  • Does she enjoy making new friends?
  • Does she like group situations?
  • Does she enjoy being outdoors? Can she see mosquitos, bugs, or other “nature” friends without being frightened?
Am I ready for my daughter to attend Resident Camp?

Parents and guardians sometimes have a difficult time sending their daughters to resident camp. The following questions will help in your decision making.

  • Can you relax and enjoy yourself when your girl sleeps overnight away from home?
  • Are you prepared to be away from your daughter for several days?
  • Are you willing to have your daughter participate in camp kapers (chores) such as setting tables, cleaning the cabin, sweeping, picking up trash, and cleaning the bathroom?
  • Are you confident in your daughter’s ability to take care of herself, make her own bed, and keep track of her own belongings?
  • Do you believe that camp provides girls with a fun and rewarding experience that builds self-worth and independence?
  • Are you willing to trust the camp staff with the care of your daughter?


Using Your Camp Credits 
 

How do I use my camp credits?

Register for camp! Once you have registered for your desired session and paid the $25 non-refundable deposite, you are good to go.

Available camp credit will be applied to your girl's registration after registration closes for the selected session. Girls/parents will be notified via email when the credit is applied and of any remaining balance owed.

Why can’t I stack more than $150 worth of credits?

In order to ensure the fair use and distribution of camp credits, we do not allow more than $150 worth of camp credits to be stacked. This policy is in place to protect the hard work of our Girl Scouts, who can only earn up to $150 of camp credits as a reward during our Cookie Program. 

Can camp credits be gifted to other girls?

Yes! In order to transfer your camp credit to another girl you must send an email to customer care at customercare@girlscouts-gateway.org with the name of the girl you are gifting to.

Can camp credits be used for a camp I have already registered for?

Yes, camp credits are automatically applied to camps that you sign up for.  After registration closes for your selected session, any earned credits will be applied and you will recieve an email with any remaining balance. If you have already paid in full, we will refund your purchase except the $25 nonrefundable deposit. 

Can camp credits be used as the deposit towards camp?

No, camp credits cannot be applied toward the $25 non-refundable camp deposit.

Can they be used for the camp store?

No, camp credits are credits towards the amazing experience of camp and cannot be used as money at the camp store.

What if I cannot attend camp? Can I get something else?

No, camp credits can only be used towards an experience at camp and cannot be exchanged for other rewards. However, Girl Scouts did recieve additional rewards at the camp credit level with the camp credits being a bonus.

If you are unable to use your credits, you are able to transfer them to another girl by emailing her name to us at customercare@girlscouts-gateway.org.
