Summer Camp 2022: Summer of Champions

This summer, prepare for an adventure — one that's totally girl-led! 

Every session is unique, but she'll always experience Girl Scout camp traditions like archery, boating, making SWAPS, learning songs, joining in talent shows and more. Registration includes a Summer Camp 2022 T-shirt and a summer camp patch.

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 2022.

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

Here's a list of what to pack for Summer Camp.


Using Your Camp Credits 
 

How do I use my camp credits?

Each Girl Scout will receive an individualized coupon code reflecting the value of her camp credit rewards from cookie season. You will enter this code on the payment page. To reserve your Girl Scout’s spot in camp you only need to complete the registration and pay the $25 non-refundable deposit. You will need to apply your coupon code and pay the remaining balance prior to the payment deadline noted on the registration page.

Why can’t I stack more than $225 worth of credits?

In order to ensure the fair use and distribution of camp credits, we do not allow more than $225 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 $225 of camp credits as a reward during our Cookie Program.

Can my credits be gifted?

Yes! You are able to gift your personalized coupon code to another girl. If you would like to donate a camp credit coupon code, but do not have a girl to designate to you can email customercare@girlscouts-gateway.org and the credits will be applied to those girls requesting financial support.

Can camp credit be used for the camp session deposit?

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

Can they be used in 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 they be used on 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 receive additional rewards at the camp credit level with the camp credits being a bonus. Camp credits can be gifted.

Is she ready for camp?

If your daughter has never spent the night away from home, you may want to start her with 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?


COVID-19 Update

As we move toward Summer 2022, we are updating our COVID-19 policies to better align with local practices. Masks will be optional for staff and campers while indoors and daily temperature checks will be discontinued. If a camper tests positive for COVID-19 at any time, the camper’s subgroup members will be notified and parents/caregivers will have the choice of whether they want to quarantine their camper. Please note that no refunds will be issued for campers that become sick or families that choose to quarantine their campers.



Sleepaway Summer Camp Sessions

During each camp session campers will enjoy themed programming in addition to camp traditions including swimming, canoeing, kayaking and archery. Campers will be in the water every day, weather allowing.

Bus Service to Camp Kateri
