Ways to Camp

**Due to the high number of cases in our state, as well as guidance from GSUSA and the CDC, we are not currently hosting any in-person programming at this time. We will evaluate this weekly, and if the situation changes, we will update this website and our member newsletters. 

Programs will continue to be delivered in a virtual format. For a complete list of virtual programs available locally and from GSUSA, visit our Girl Scouting at Home page.**

Camporee Update

Camporee is a large Girl Scout gathering featuring fun, singing around the campfire, and other outdoor experiences held every three years at Trefoil Ranch, with the next gathering scheduled for June of 2021. We have made the difficult decision to postpone Camporee until summer 2022.

Our camps are accredited by the American Camp Association, who provided us with robust guidance on ways to safely hold summer camp. That guidance emphasizes small groups of campers, which is why we will not be able to hold our traditional large Camporee in 2021. By postponing until summer 2022, we are hoping we will be in an environment where it is safe to hold this popular event, which typically includes nearly 1,000 participants.

We are preparing to run resident camp, family camp, and troop camp with adaptations to ensure the safety of campers and staff, such as reduced group sizes, masks, enhanced wellness checks, and enhanced cleaning and sanitation. Our girls need camp now more than ever, and we are doing everything in our power to make that happen!

Resident camp and family camp registrations open December 14. Troop camping registration opens February 11, 2021. Activity scholarships are available.

Camporee FAQs
What does this mean for summer camps?

We are preparing to run resident camp, family camp, and troop camp with adaptations to ensure the safety of campers and staff, such as reduced group sizes, masks, enhanced wellness checks, and enhanced cleaning and sanitation. Our girls need camp now more than ever, and we are doing everything in our power to make that happen!

Why can't we hold Camporee in 2021?

Our camps are accredited by the American Camp Association, who provided us with robust guidance on ways to safely hold summer camp. That guidance emphasizes small groups of campers, which is why we will not be able to hold our traditional large Camporee in 2021. By postponing until summer 2022, we are hoping we will be in an environment where it is safe to hold this popular event, which typically includes nearly 1,000 participants.

How can girls use Activity Credits?

Summer camp registration is opening early (December 14) to allow you to use 2019 Activity Credits before they expire. You can continue to use 2020 Activity Credits throughout the year for resident camp, family camp, troop camping, council-sponsored events, and merchandise in the Girl Scout shop.

What does this mean for the Camporee Committee?

We are so grateful for the dedicated group of volunteers who make Camporee happen every three years, and we cannot do this work without you! We will suspend the Camporee Committee temporarily, and will connect with you again in August 2021 to begin planning for 2022.

Does this change the Camporee three-year schedule?

When we can hold Camporee again, we will reset the three-year schedule. Meaning, if we are able to hold Camporee in 2022 as we are planning now, the next Camporee will be in 2025.

There are some graduating Girl Scouts who were looking forward to being Camporee Aides. Where does this leave them?

When we begin planning for the next Camporee, we will invite our young alums to join the Camporee Aides or the Camporee Committee.

Girl Scouts Soar in the Outdoors - 2019

This report from the Girl Scout Research Institute, supported by the Elliott Wildlife Values Project, summarizes findings from a 2018–19 study investigating the impact of outdoor engagement and national outdoor badge programming on girls—including the achievement of Girl Scouts of the USA’s outdoor outcomes (PDF).  Responses to 1,690 girl and 236 troop leader surveys were analyzed. Results showed that Girl Scouts is getting girls outdoors; exposing them to new and challenging experiences; and enhancing their outdoor interest, confidence, and competence. Girl Scouting is also building girls’ commitment to environmental stewardship, which will help them engage responsibly with nature throughout their lives. In short, outdoor adventure enriches the Girl Scout experience for girls.
