A Note About Safety

Girl Scouts Heart of New Jersey is committing to allowing our girls to return to camp this summer as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. We recognize the profound impact the pandemic has had on our families and the many changes it has caused in our lives. However, the need for us to engage as a camp community has not changed – it has increased. Never has the need for camp been greater, for bringing face to face relationships, freedom from screens, and tons of growth opportunities in the fresh air.

These policies and procedures are subject to change based on best practices.
