Troop Camping

Troop camping is when troops reserve a site at one of our GSNEO camps and stay one night or more. Each camp has something special to offer. Check out our Program Guides to see what programs are offered at camp. While at camp, many troops enjoy Council-sponsored programs when available, work on badges, a Journey, go hiking, and just enjoy being at camp!

Council has camp properties which provide many opportunities for resident, day, and troop camping as well as host many Council programs. The Summer Camp Guide, is distributed in the spring with information on summer programs, dates, locations, and age requirements. 



Council-Sponsored Resident Camping

Summer is Resident Camp time! Resident Camp is an overnight camping experience in which campers live at either Camp Ledgewood or Camp Timberlane. Girls sign up as individual campers or go with a buddy. The girls and their counselors/leaders plan activities, taking advantage of the resources available at the campsite. All summer resident staff are specially trained. Resident Camp opportunities are listed in the Summer Camp Guide available in February.

Day & Twilight Camping (Community Day Camp)

Day and Twilight Camping is generally a summer program run for three to five days for no more than seven hours per day under the approval and direction of GSNEO. This creative outdoor experience is generally theme-based creating a common thread for the activities. Girls may sign up as individual campers or go with buddies and are put in units of peer group living. Council assists with training the staff and approving the facilities and site. A day/twilight camp may be at a council-owned or approved site. Day and Twilight Camp opportunities are listed in the Summer Camp Guide, available in February.
