Camp and Parent Info
All Girls Welcome
All girls are invited to Girl Scout camp! If a girl is not yet a registered Girl Scout, she can still attend camp by registering online or via paper form and including an additional $12 for a Girl Scout membership. She will then be eligible for Girl Scout programming through September 30, 2013. Adults who are attending GSNWGL programs also need to be registered Girl Scouts.

Each camp session described in this planner provides an idea of what activities will be included at camp; however, girl input helps determine what activities happen. When the girls help make program decisions, they are discovering their interests, trying new things, and engaging in cooperation and team-building.
All grades listed for summer program events and camp sessions refer to the grades girls will be entering in the fall of 2013.
A completed Health History Form is required in order to attend Girl Scout camp. A physical exam at least 24 months prior to the last day of the camp session is also necessary for anyone attending programs with three or more overnights, and medical personnel must sign the Health History Form verifying these conditions have been met. The form can be found at http://gsnw.gl/HealthHistory.
All GSNWGL camp properties follow the recommended guidelines from Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) with regard to health and safety, and permits are renewed annually by the state following health and safety inspections. Camp Birch Trails is accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA). The ACA is a community of camp professionals dedicated to enriching the lives of children and adults through the camp experience. Accreditation is voluntary and involves scrutiny of camp staff, facilities, safety, and risk. Accreditation is your assurance that this camp has been evaluated and is nationally-recognized in every area of operation and management.
Safety is our number one concern in Girl Scouting! Our camp staff is well-trained in safety procedures to keep your daughter safe. All camps follow Girl Scout and state standards for health and safety.
All camps are prepared to accommodate a wide variety of abilities, special needs, and dietary restrictions. Please contact the camp prior to registering so preparations can be made to make your camper’s experience the best it can be. Be sure to list all special needs in the appropriate field during registration.
