Troop Camping

Are you ready for an outdoor adventure? Camping is key (and fun!) component of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, and troop camping provides an easy way for girls and volunteers to experience the great outdoors. 

Troop camp provides a great bonding opportunity as girls build campfires, go boating, practice archery, experience hiking, do arts and crafts — and so much more!

Gateway Council's properties are available throughout the year for troops to experience camping in a variety ways, with activities appropriate for all levels.

Requirements for troop camping
• At least one Gateway camp trained certified adult.
• At least one First Aid/CPR/AED certified adult.
• A lifeguard, if swimming.
• A kayak/canoe/sailing instructor if kayaking, canoeing or sailing.
• At least one USA Archery Level One instructor certified adult, if participating in archering.
• A health form for each person.

Note: Different adults must fill each required role, e.g., the camp-certified adult and the first aid-certified adult may not be the same person.

GSGC COVID-19 Guidelines for Camp Properties

GSGC is committed to ensuring the safety of all camp visitors and has developed guidelines for all camp properties in order to keep the camping experience safe.

Campers should engage in everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Cough and sneeze into a tissue, throw the tissue in the trash, and wash or sanitize your hands.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Wash hands if you do touch.
  • Volunteers, girls and parents should be reminded to make sure temperatures are taken prior to group interaction to confirm the individual is not running a fever and temperature is a normal 98.6 degrees  Members with fever or temperature higher than 98.6 should skip the in-person gathering until their temperature is normal.
