A note about safety
:

As you know, our priority is always the health and safety of our campers. As we begin to plan for Summer 2022, we are still determining what COVID protocols will be implemented for the summer.

We continue to work in partnership with Girl Scouts USA, the American Camp Association, and the Association of Camp Nurses and follow the lead of all local, state, and national governing organizations. We anticipate a mixture of mitigation including testing, masks, and vaccines and will post finalized protocols as soon as they are available.
