School Year Camp Program (Minicamps)

school_year_camp_program_row

Girl Scouts of Utah provides camp program all year – not just during the summer! Our school year programs are often referred to as "Minicamps." Girls can attend camp programs individually, with friends, with their troop, or with an adult companion depending on the program. Activities range from snowshoeing, ropes course, canoeing, hiking, art, and more!

All outdoor program registrations, forms, and healthcare are housed in UltraCamp - Girl Scout of Utah's Outdoor Program registration system. Manage your UltraCamp account here.

About

Our minicamp programs are a great way for girls to experience camp for the first time or create memories in the outdoors yearround. With so many options, there is something for every camper!  

Participation types:

  • Girls only: Girls can attend on their own or with friends.
  • Girl with adult: Typical registration is a girl or siblings registered with a parent/guardian. Female or male adults are welcome to attend, unless the program specifies otherwise.
  • Troop: A group of girls from the same troop can attend together with troop leaders. Troop overnight camping ratios should be followed when registering for programs.
    • Camping ratios
    • 1:4 for Daisies
    • 1:6 for Brownies
    • 1:8 for Juniors & Cadettes
    • 1:10 for Seniors & Ambassadors
Ways to Pay

Activity Credits

The Girl Scouts of Utah Cookie Program helps girls pay for Girl Scout programming through earned Activity Credits. Girls receive Activity Credits to help pay for summer camps, day camps, program activities, Girl Scout membership fees, and items from the Girl Scout Shop.

Activity Credits can be used for minicamp registration fees by printing and completing the registration form.

Activity Scholarship Program

This program provides assistance for individual girl members who are registered Girl Scouts and wish to attend GSU sponsored camps or programs, but are unable due to financial restraints. Applications may be submitted after completion of the initial registration and the program deposit is paid.

Each membership year a girl may receive one Activity Scholarship for a school year program and one for summer camp. 

As a Troop

Troop leaders have the option of having families register girls individually, or troops can reserve spaces in a minicamp program. Read more about how to pay as a troop.

During this overnight session, get clued in to horses by learning about how to care for horses, what equipment you need, rider lingo, and more before grooming, helping tack your horse, and going on a ride.

Girls and adults will ride in the arena for 1-hour and have a 1-hour horse care lesson. Time spent away from the stables will be spent enjoying a campfire program, interviewing a Girl Scout camp horse expert, creating a horse-themed craft, and making a treat to give the horses!
