GSMW Summer Camp Details

Click to view camp guide

Every year, Girl Scouts across our council have enjoyed summer camp and all that it has to offer. Girl Scout camp is part of girls’ fondest of memories, and we have loved watching girls grow and challenge themselves in this supportive environment. However, we have never faced anything like our current world challenge.

We have been closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19 and in this time of uncertainty and constantly changing timelines we are placed in a most difficult position. First and foremost, in all we do, the highest regard for health and safety must prevail.

As a result, it is with heavy hearts that we have been compelled to cancel our summer 2020 resident camp sessions as published in our camp brochure. However, we have created an alternative, shortened resident camp offering.

Registration for the new camps will open on
May 18th at Noon via this web page
.  

Please see the 2020 Summer Camp Guide. Our camp director has a video message to campers, and please feel free to share it with your girl.


See FAQ's below and direct additional questions to Customer Care.

Will camp registration be through CampDoc again this year?
No, this year camp registration will be through our program registration system Doubleknot. You will be able to access camp registration on www.gsmw.org/camp

Cookie Camp Earners
For those who have reached the 1,000 box level, one choice of the following reward options are  available.
1. $200 Amazon Gift Card
2. One 2020 Camp Session (from the adjusted schedule) + $50 Amazon Gift Card
3. Carry my camp over to the 2021 Resident Camp Season
The reward options above are also be available at the 2,000 box level. 

Troop Leaders
We understand that the timing of the camp registration opening and our cookie sale is not ideal.  If you have a girl in your troop whose intention it is to sell 1,000 boxes and attend the adjusted camp offering this summer (Option 2 above), please assign those boxes to the girl in eBudde by May 13th.  Prior to attending camp, those boxes will need to be paid in full.

What if the 2020 Camp I choose gets canceled?
If Cookie Camp Earners choose option 2 above and we must cancel their chosen camp, the girls can choose to reschedule to a later 2020 camp (if capacity exists) OR receive an additional $150 Amazon Gift Card (for a total Amazon Gift Card of $200).

Code! SciGirls
The world of technology, design, and invention opens the doors to endless possibilities at this limited-edition summer camp. This week of coding and contraptions includes ample opportunity for girls to explore technology as well as the outdoors. Campers will solve real-life problems by learning to code and practicing computational thinking, creativity, ingenuity, pair coding, and leadership. This program is designed to give girls experience in the coding realm but also the soft skills to be successful down whatever path they choose. By the end of the week, campers will have programmed LED’s, a digital display, speakers, and motors to create their final project that will be presented in the family portion of the event. This camp requires four hours of family commitment – two hours prior to the start of camp, and two hours at the end of camp. This camp is funded in part by Twin Cities Public Television and the National Science Foundation.

Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park Service Adventure
Take Action this summer and earn the “National Park Service Resource Stewardship” patch along with the “Glacier Park Girl Scout Ranger” patch. Campers will explore an awe-inspiring national park and perform service projects for the National Park Service. They will work alongside Glacier National Park staff performing service projects that may include removal of non-native plants, building picnic tables, or painting historic structures.

To earn both patches, girls will perform a total of 15 hours of service. During non-service hours, there will be opportunities for girls to hike, attend ranger talks, and learn camping skills. Campers get to sleep in tents, and units will take turns cooking outdoor meals. GSMW can help supply some of the camping gear, so come out and give this service adventure a try!

Families are responsible for transporting their girls to Glacier National Park near West Glacier. Upon registration, girls will receive a confirmation letter with directions to the park, a free park entrance pass, and a packing and preparation list. GSMW will provide transportation to and from service project sites. This means less walking and more time for sight-seeing in the Park!

Yellowstone National Park Ranger Experience
Travel deep below the bubbling surface into the mysterious geology and history of Yellowstone Park. Join GSMW and the wonderfully inspirational park rangers of Yellowstone National Park for an immersive outdoor program steeped in science, art, and history. Side-by-side with our dedicated Park Rangers, girls will provide service to the Park and earn their Girl Scout Resource Stewardship patch from the National Park Service.

Girls will spend four days in the Park conducting citizen science observations while learning about the incredibly powerful geology and history of the Park. Campers will spend each day outdoors, no matter the weather! They will live in a dormitory setting and help prepare meals together.

All campers will meet in Gardiner, Montana at noon on the first and last days of the program. Limited adult chaperone spots are available. Only one chaperone registration per household. Registered adults will chaperone all girls, not just the ones who arrive with them. Participating adults will help transport girls to programs throughout the Park. All adults must be registered GSMW members with a completed criminal background check.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Out-of-State Camp Restrictions
As of March 30th, Montana is under a state directive requiring travelers arriving from another state or country to Montana for non-work related purposes to undergo a 14-day self-quarantine. This directive is in place until the end of the emergency, so GSMW advises all Wyoming citizens to register for Camp Sacajawea camps unless they otherwise are planning on self-quarantining in Montana for two weeks prior to camp. At this time, there is no limitation on travel from out-of-state into Wyoming.

At-Risk of Severe COVID-19 Symptoms 
Before registering for camp, please consider if you are at a higher risk of severe COVID-19 symptoms (i.e. people over 65 years old and those with underlying medical conditions like cardiovasucular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer). GSMW will follow all CDC recommended COVID mitigation guidelines for residential camps.

Camp Registration 
CampDoc will NOT be used this year for camp registration. This year camp registration will be through our program registration system, Doubleknot. 

Camp Patch and T-Shirt
Camp patches will be distributed to each camper at checkout, however due to limited resources there will not be a 2020 Summer Camp t-shirt this year. 

Cancellation Policy
A full refund will be given if for any reason GSMW cancels camp. If a camper needs to cancel for medical reasons, a full refund will be given with family's written request and council approval. Please review the entire camp cancellation policy on your confirmation receipt that will be emailed to you after registration. 

COVID-19 and Social Distancing Requirements
As always, the health and safety of our campers and staff is of the utmost importance. We will evaluate current conditions as the summer progresses and make adjustments as required. We will also have additional safety precautions in place.
