Overnight Camping

Overnight Camping Information

Camp will take place rain or shine. Please prepare accordingly.

 

*** PLEASE NOTE - ALL GUIDELINES ARE BASED ON THE HIGHEST RESTRICTIONS WHILE WE WORK THROUGH THE PANDEMIC. PLEASE PLAN FOR THIS LEVEL. IF WE ARE ABLE TO RELAX SOME OF THE RESTRICTION CLOSER TO CAMP WE WILL MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT***

ALL campers must be registered with Girl Scouts. Adults must have a current background check and volunteer form on file. NO EXCEPTIONS.  Troops will need to have a Camping 102 Certified Adult, as well as a First Aider. Consider buddying with another troop if needed. 

Please indicate on the Troop Registration form if you are a First Time Camper. Please make sure you have reviewed and adhere to Safety Checkpoints for all camping activities.

You must Check In with one of the Tent City Coordinators.  Check In times Will be added soon!.

Camping will be primitive camping.  There is no access to electricity in Tent City.   While well water is available for cooking and drinking, it is a little bit of a walk from Tent City.  We suggest you bring your water containers to make this easier. 

Quiet Time is between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m.  Please be respectful of other campers during this time and keep noise and movement to a minimum.

You may not dig your own fire pits. There will be some provided for community use. You may also bring propane stoves or charcoal grills, but you may not bring lighter fluid. Open flame must be a minimum of 10’ from tents and a water bucket should be readily accessible. 

Men will have a separate sleeping area and must provide their own tents.  They are welcome to participate in all troop activities until quiet time in which we ask that they return to their sleeping area.

COVID GUIDELINES:

*Tents should only have half capacity of recommended sleeping. For example a 10 person tent should have 5 people in it. 

*Parents may share a tent separately with their Girl Scout only. 

*Leader/Parent discrecion - Girls may sleep alone in a tent.

Leaders of CSA Troops:

You will be contacted separately about something we are planning for our Teen girls. It is intentionally being kept quiet because we don't want the girls to find out about it before then. We will be telling you of what our "plans" are and how you can help us make this an amazing activity. While we are okay with you sharing with your CSA (Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors) that there will be something special for them, as you receive information from us about it, we ask that you don't share it with them. 

 

First Time Campers:

If you are a first time camping troop, please check the button on the Troop Registration Form.  This will help us make your first camping experience memorable in a good way. 

First Time Camper Buddies:

If your troop would like to help a first time camping troop, please check the button on the Troop Registration From.  We will pair you up with a new camping troop.  This would be an opportunity to connect with younger Girl Scouts and possibly earn awards through your troop.

 

Girl Scouts leave a place better than how they found it. Please make sure all items, including trash, is removed from the camp upon leaving.
