Girl planning

In Girl Scouts, girls are the boss and that means they choose their own adventures. All campers will do all the awesome things her particular program offers. But each session also has tons of traditional, camp activities, games, songs, and more! We let the girls take the lead on choosing how to spend some of their time at camp!

Health Forms and More!

All girls must bring a completed and signed health history form with her to her first day of camp either when boarding the bus or when arriving at camp. If your girl is attending multiple sessions, you need to bring a health history to the first day of each camp sessions. We recommend making copies for each session she’ll be attending. *Please do NOT mail health history forms in. They will be returned.

Attending a Wilderness Trip? If so, campers need to have a physical exam at least 24 months prior to the Wilderness Trip. A medical professional must sign the health history form verifying that your camper meets this condition. Girls attending Wilderness Trips need to bring the doctor signed health history form to their first day of camp.
