Summer Camp

Regstration for Summer Camp 2023 is now open on our events calendar! Be sure to also check out the digital copy of our 2023 council magazine.

Visit our camp registration page for a step-by-step guide to getting your Girl Scout signed up for her favorite camp session. 

Hey Camp Parents! Summer isn’t just about fun; it’s also about setting your camper up for an abundant life of quality relationships, self-confidence, independence, and healthy decision making. We are excited to partner with you to help her work toward these goals.

The 2023 Camp Parent Packets will help you plan appropriately for your Girl Scout's time at camp. These packets contain updated information, so please make sure to review them thoroughly, complete forms for you and your camper online, and review the packing list prior to your session. We can’t wait to see you this summer!

Frequently Asked Questions

You have questions and we have answers. Please see below for some of the questions you might have. 

Can I rent camp with my troop or group?

Yes! Camp Juliettte is available year-round and Camp Joy Hollow is available from May - October. Camp Sacajawea and Camp Tanglefoot are available September through May for rentals. Please visit our Camp Rentals page for details and current capacity information. 

What does it mean that my camper is on a waitlist?

Girls who register for a camp session after it fills will be placed on a waitlist and will not be asked for payment. If a spot in a camp session opens up, a parent will receive an email asking the parent to pay the deposit for the camp session. Girls move off of the waitlist one at a time in the order they registered. Waitlists have a limit of 10-15 campers. 

What grade level sessions should I be looking at for my camper?

Girls should register for a session for the grade they will be going into next fall. For example, if a girl is in grade 3 currently, she should look at sessions listed for grade 4 girls. 

Do I have to pay the full amount to register for camp?

You pay only the $35 deposit for overnight camps and $10 for day camps initially, then pay the rest before your Girl Scout goes to camp. Camp also makes a great Cookie Program goal! Your Girl Scout can earn program credits (like Cookie Dough!) to help offset the cost of camp.

Does my girl have to be a Girl Scout member to go to camp?

Anyone attending overnight camp must be a registered Girl Scout member, but don’t worry – registering is easy

What is a Trading Post? What are Trading Post Credits? How do I purchase them for my camper to use at camp?

The Trading Post is the camp shop that is open on check-in and check-out days, as well as one day during the week for campers to shop. She can shop for items like t-shirts and other camp apparel, water bottles, stuffed animals, additional daily snacks, and other fun camp necessities. Once camp is over, your camper can donate any remaining balance to help support GSGI camps, or save the credits for next summer!

Trading Post Credits are pre-purchased dollar amounts for your camper to use at camp. Please do not send cash with your camper. To ensure that your camper has access to their credits at the start of their camp season, we recommend purchasing credits at least one week prior to her first camp session start date.
