– Go to the GSU UltraCamp login page and select “New User.”
– Set the “Account Type” as “Service Unit or Troop” and follow prompts.
– Do not list troop members in the troop account; list only yourself and co-leader(s) if desired.

Camporee FAQs

What do we do at Camporee?

Girl Scouts of Utah staff, camp staff, volunteer committee members, and camp program aides will provide hours of fun. We will have a campfire, learn outdoor skills, and enjoy fun filled events planned throughout the day.

There will be plenty of time for you to spend with your troop; you decide as a troop what you want to do. It’s your camping experience!

We are not able to offer program areas (i.e. archery, horseback riding, ropes course, etc.) due to the number of Camporee participants.

Check-in/out and Tagalongs

What time do we check in?
Troop leaders will be notified of the troops’ specific check-in and check-out times prior to Camporee. Participants should check with their Troop Leader for details.

Assigned check-in times will be on Thursday, June 15 between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Check out is after the closing ceremony on Saturday, June 17 starting at 11:00 a.m.

The last campers in will be the first campers out, so if you want to stay longer, come early.

Can we arrive late or depart early?
Due to parking logistics, youth and adults coming to Camporee 2023 must be able to stay for the entire duration of the event. We cannot accommodate any additional arriving/leaving times for any camper for any reason.

Can we bring tag-a-longs (siblings) or invite visitors?
For the safety and security of all participants and to ensure quality programming, tag-a-longs or visitors not registered for this event (boys, girls, adults, siblings, children, infants, parents, etc.) may not stay or visit.

Trefoil Ranch has a full-time site manager and a locked gate and is patrolled by local law enforcement agencies. The campsite areas are secure and monitored by staff.

Lodging and Meals

Where will we live? 
Be prepared to camp! Most participants will stay in the meadow in tents and gear brought by the troops. Cooking areas and additional port-a-potties will be set up in this area for troops. 

Limited space is available in cabins and platform tents for an additional fee. 

Adult males attending camporee will be housed together in one of the buildings in main camp, separate from their troop. 

How do meals work? 
Troops must bring their own breakfast, lunch, and snacks to be cooked at their campsite. Camp will provide dinner each night. Participants will be asked about special dietary needs in their paperwork so that all Girl Scouts and adults have alternative options. 

Packing Lists, SWAPs, Cell Phones

What do I need to bring?
Be prepared to camp! You’ll need to bring everything your troop needs to camp comfortably including tents, warm sleeping bags, food, snacks, hand washing items, table, chairs, stove (if needed), troop activities, SWAPS, and jackets.

A detailed packing list will be made available around April 1, and the Camping 101 course will also go over items to bring.

What are SWAPS? How many should we make?
Go ahead and get started on making these “Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere” tokens of friendship to exchange on the first day of Camporee. Additional information about SWAPS will be updated closer to Camporee. 

What is the cell phone policy?
Campers are not allowed to use cell phones or the camp phones. We ask that if adults must use a cell phone, that they do so away from the campers. The Camp Director or the Troop Leader will reach out for any extenuating circumstance(s) that guardians need to be notified.

Please advise parents to avoid promising their camper that they will be able to call home while at camp.

Troop Leaders and Adult Supporters

What are the expectations for troop leaders and supporters?
Troop Leaders are responsible for providing consistency and supervision for their Girl Scouts at all times. This includes troop time, camp staff-led activity time, morning and bedtime routines, and meal time.

When troops are participating in a camp staff-led activity or workshop, Troop Leaders are welcome to join in the activity but are also expected to assist their campers.

The role of camp staff is to lead activities, interact with campers, facilitate the camp experience, and support Troop Leaders. Troops will interact with multiple staff during their stay and will not be assigned specific counselors.

Camp staff will be sleeping in separate areas from troops. Administrative staff are always available to help troop leaders as needed.

Girl/adult ratios for Camporee 
Troops are expected to follow a 1:5 ratio, regardless of age level(s) of Girl Scouts attending. If your troop does not meet this ratio, your troop will need to add or decrease the number of adults coming with you. If your troop has a special situation requiring more adults than what this ratio would provide, Troop Leaders will indicate this during the registration process. 

This is a troop camping experience that is intended for camping and outdoor experience progression. If you are looking to attend camp with each child having an adult companion, check out the following programs: 

  • Family Camp at Trefoil Ranch or Camp Cloud Rim (summer) 
  • Minicamp Programs at Trefoil Ranch or Camp Cloud Rim (school year)
  • Camp Rentals for Troops at Trefoil Ranch (school year) 
General Health Information

Where do we find information about camper health and wellness?
Please click through Camper Well-Being and Guidelines in the  Camp Orientation Guide  to find information regarding the following topics:

  • Camp Health Information
  • Camper Physical Well-being
  • Special Dietary Needs and Severe Food Allergies

Girl Scouts of Utah plans quality programs with the health, safety, and well-being of campers as our priority. Sessions may be altered or canceled due to weather, fire, natural disaster, staffing challenges, or low registration numbers. If a session is canceled due to low registration numbers, campers will be given the opportunity to select another program. No refunds will be issued if changes are made to activities due to weather, fire, or natural disaster. However, if changes become necessary due to the impact of COVID-19, we will offer alternate program options or the option to choose a refund.

The Camp Director may determine whether a camper is competent to participate in any activity, and, if necessary, transfer the camper to another program. When necessary, campers will participate in alternate activities. Campers are expected to follow the Girl Scout Promise and Law. If a camper is unable to follow camp guidelines, damages property, or becomes a danger to themselves or others, the Camp Director will work with the camper and may elect to send them home.
