Camp Properties & Rental

PROPERTY RESERVATIONS 

SPRING 2021: Currently taking reservations for the following (all must follow current COVID guidelines found here):

  • Day Trips: Troops can rent any of our facilities for the day within the current capacity guidelines.
  • As a reminder, Troops are currently unable to organize overnights with the exception of the below circumstances:
  • Private Household Overnights: Overnight camping is permitted for private households. This means that Troops can hold overnights, but each girl must be housed with someone from their private household or individually. What does that look like 
    • Everyone brings a guardian : A troop can rent a unit or two and ask each girl to bring an adult member of their household with them. Troops would then assign each girl and their guardian to an individual cabin/tent etc. If you need more sleeping space, you are welcome to bring and set up tents on the unit as well.
    • One camper per tent : If you are unable to get a family member to attend with each girl, then your other options is to have each member sleep in their own tent. You can set up tents in any of our units. However, please note that many of our sites are walk-in only (you will not be able to pull the car directly into the site). This applies to Brownies and older who are comfortable staying in a tent alone (with other tents close by).

Family Camping: Private households are welcome to reserve and stay in any of our facilities.

SUMMER 2021: We anticipate being able to offer the following option. *Dependent on state and local standards.

Summer Troop Camp Adventure: Insert Summer Information

FALL 2021: We anticipate being able to offer the following option. *Dependent on state and local standards.

Traditional Troop Camping: We will be developing safety guidelines in the hopes of returning to traditional troop camping in the fall of 2021. 

 

You may email us at customercare@gswny.org for any general customer inquiries.

ADDITIONAL REMINDERS:

  • Insurance/GS Membership: If a family member will be chaperoning other girls, the family member must be registered and background checked as a Troop Helper/Chaperone. If a family member is only accompanying her/his own child and will not be chaperoning other girls, the family member must either be a current Girl Scout member or the troop must purchase additional non-scout Girl Scout Accident/Incident insurance. For all non-scout rentals, the insurance standards remain the same.
  • Dining: Dining halls will remain closed until further notice. All cooking must take place outdoors. The one exception to this rule is if a “family pod” reserves a building with an indoor kitchen, then they themselves may use it. Troops may bring in catered/previously prepared food and serve it indoors. However, everyone must be seated 6 feet apart. We highly suggest that participants bring individually prepared meals (lunch bags etc.). While GSWNY has equipment rental options for outdoor cooking, please contact customercare@gswny.org if you want more information.  We also highly encourage you to consider local restaurants or catering options for takeout during this time.
  • Special Activities: If you and your group intend on participating in activities that will require unique safety/cleaning procedures, then we kindly ask that you submit a safety plan. Examples Include: Cooking and eating several meals for a large group, recreational activities that may require contact/sharing equipment, etc. We can help you work through these challenges.

Our properties host camping and outdoor activities, which remain a favorite for girls at every age, as they have been throughout Girl Scout history. We offer summer day and resident camp programs, and family/troop/group camping. Prior Girl Scout membership is not required.

Girl Scout camp is more than unique, it is girl-led; guided by our staff, girls (including those who have never participated with Girl Scouts) enjoy our programs and are involved in planning, organizing, and evaluating their camp activities. Girls are empowered as they learn at their own pace and practice creative thinking, leadership, and decision-making skills at every turn.

Year-round, troops can conquer our high ropes challenge courses and camp in lodges and tents, enjoy water play, learn outdoor and survival skills, and discover nature. We also open our properties to corporate groups for team-building retreats and conferences, and to families for weddings and other celebrations.
