CampLife

Summer is just around the corner, and it’s time to start planning your girl’s next big adventure. The best part is, all girls are welcome – no Girl Scout experience necessary! 

We have a camp for every girl! We offer one-day programs and week-long day camps. We also have week-long resident camps at Camps Ledgewood and Timberlane. 

Plus, our unique camp themes ensure she'll find the perfect fit for her. If she's a night owl Moonlight Madness may be her perfect Resident Camp, but if she loves to experiment and build brilliant inventions, maybe Lady Engineers is the perfect One-Day Program for the girl who's a budding engineer, and Pigment of Imagination may just be the Week-long Day Camp for the artistic girl in your life.  Whichever of our many camp themes she chooses, fun is sure to follow!

How to register
Once you've reviewed the Camp Guide with your girl, it's time to register for the camp(s) of her choice! Registering is easy!

Step 1. Find her chosen camp on our event calendar by clicking here

Step 2. Click on the name of the camp on the calendar, and more information will pop up in a bubble. Click on the camp name in green. 

Step 3. More details about the camp, including a description will be show. Click on the green "Register Now" button. 

Step 4. The next screen will show you more information, including the capacity for the program. If registration is still open (meaning the deadline has not passed and/or the program is not yet at capacity,) a gray "Register" button will be available. Click on this button. You will be brought to another page with more details about the program, follow the gray "Register" button again.

Step 5. If you've registered for programs, events, or trainings with us before, please Log On to the system using your username and password. If this is your first time, choose "Create a New User Profile." You will then create a profile for yourself, and begin the process of registering your girl!

Step 6. Girls who are not yet members of Girl Scouts will also need to pay the $25 membership fee during the registration process. This is an easy step that is added after you've completed the camp registration process.

 

What does "no Girl Scout experience necessary" mean?

It means all girls who have completed Kindergarten through 11th grade are welcome - the only requirement is you have to be a girl! 

Whether they are an 11-year veteran of the program, or have never set foot in a troop meeting, girls will feel safe to try new things, be themselves, and make new friends. 

Any girl who is not yet a member of Girl Scouts will just need to pay an additional $25 to her camp fee at the time of registration. 

If you're not sure if our camps are the right fit for your girl, come to one of our free Open Houses to learn more!

Forms, packing lists, and more

We know you have a ton of questions about what sort of permission forms you need, what to bring to camp, how to get to camp, and camp care packages!

You can find answers to all of those questions, and more, here.

Why Girl Scout camp?

Our research shows exposure to the outdoors is extremely beneficial to girls because they need a safe place to try new things and be themselves. Girls benefit from being in an all-girl environment, away from home, where they learn independence, and to never back down from a big adventure. Camping is a great way for girls to build valuable skills while developing a deep appreciation for nature.

What sets our camp program apart is our unique themes – there’s a camp for every girl! A girly girl would love Pampered Princess Day Camp, an animal lover should try Paws and Claws, Camp Comic Con is perfect for the lover of super heroes and fiction, and The Great Camp Timberlane Bake Off is perfect for the girl who wants to try baking in the great outdoors! These are just a small sampling of some of our themes, plus, all camp programs include traditional camping activities like camp fires, crafts, swimming, and more.

Is financial assistance available?

We offer limited financial scholarships for families whose personal circumstances may be an obstacle so that their girl can fully engage in Girl Scouts.

Scoutship is offered for membership and summer camp fees. 

The on-line application for Scoutship can be found here.

Factors that help decide the Scoutship award are household income and household size.

My girl received a wristband at school

We're glad to hear your girl was excited about our camp presentation and brought home the wristband!

One of our staff members visited your girl's school today to talk to the girls about our summer camp programs. The point of the presentation was to share a little bit of information about the different types of activities your girl can do at camp, what new things she can learn, and to answer any questions she may have. The best part is, no Girl Scout experience is necessary - all girls are welcome!

Since we know you as a caregiver are bombared by paperwork and forms, the wristband was a different way of getting this web address home to you! If you have any additional questions, feel free to email us at marketing@gsneo.org
