GSNEO Statement, 12/7/2020:
For over 100 years, our movement has been committed to the safety of our girls, membership, and community.
The State of Ohio mandates that gatherings should be of no more 10 persons, which would mean a maximum of 8 girls for 2 adult volunteers in relation to troop/group meetings for Girl Scouts. Our guidelines for in-person meetings as well as camp outings are available here. Girl Scouts of North East Ohio covers 18 counties in the state of Ohio and additional requirements may vary from county to county or even city to city. Please follow guidance from your local authorities. The most up to date county alerts can be found here.
Girl Scouts of North East Ohio recommends that all members, troops, and groups suspend in-person Girl Scout meetings/activities while their county or city is rated as “Purple” by the Ohio Public Health Advisory System, has a stay-at-home order, essential travel only restriction, or similar advisory in place.
Our retail shops have moved to curbside orders by appointment only, and volunteers should make an appointment through our shop calendar for any other pick-ups as well. While our offices remain open for essential business purposes, our onsite staffing is limited to those serving essential functions, as most work from home to reduce the virus spread. Appointments are available by visiting our Shop page.
If you have a current reservation for a program, training, event, or camp activity/overnight and wish to cancel, please contact us prior to your event date for a 100% refund on your purchase with us.
Girl Scouts of North East Ohio will be cancelling some programs and trainings that pull together members from different geographic areas and will process full refunds for those cancellations. Some programs and trainings may shift to a virtual experience or be rescheduled for a later date. Registered participants will be contacted directly.
At this time, our camp properties will remain open and we are still allowing Day Pass and limited Overnight visits with confirmed/approved reservations. However, we will continue to monitor the latest COVID information for each county and will cancel reservations with full refunds, as we deem necessary to protect the health and safety of girls, volunteers, and staff. All visitors must follow our guidelines (referenced above) and the recommendations from local and state officials regarding gatherings, mask-wearing, hygiene, and social distancing. Thank you for your understanding.
We will continue to monitor and follow recommendations by the State
of Ohio, Ohio Department of Health, and county and local authorities
throughout our footprint at Girl Scouts of North East Ohio. Please
feel free to contact GSNEO Customer Care at 800-852-4474, email@example.com, or via Live Chat with any
questions that you might have.
