Black Moshannon State Park
Uniform Hiking Boots
Spring Camporee is an unstructured event where troops are invited to camp to just hang out, work on a badge, and generally do their own thing. This year we will be at Black Moshannon State Park.
Troops are encouraged to look at the Environmental Stewardship Badges. We will be doing a Service Project for Black Moshannon State Park. Badges will not be provided with registration.
Activities that will be available: fishing, level based STEM Mobile activity, service project to benefit Black Moshannon State Park, and more.
Daisy Day is a structured program for Daisies on Saturday during camp to introduce our newest scouts to being outdoors and the Leave No Trace philosophy. The program will run from 9AM to 4PM. Daisies coming for Daisy Day will be provided an afternoon snack, but should make sure to bring a bagged lunch.
Early registration will run until April 7. Regular registration will continue until April 28, or until camp fills.
The cost for attending Spring Camporee is $10 per adult and $20 per girl. Girls registered (and paid) before April 7 will receive a $5 discount.
Daisies coming for Daisy Day should pack a bagged lunch.
Daisy Day will conclude before the evening meal and campfire.
The will be a group dinner and a group campfire with S’mores.
Troops are welcome to use any of the charcoal grills at Black Moshannon across the road from the Main Tent Camping Area (or in other areas of the park). There are also three campfire areas in the main tent camping area we are using that can be shared by troops. Troops are responsible for bringing their own wood/charcoal. Keep in mind that troops will likely be sharing campfire space.
Troops/Groups are responsible for their own lunch and breakfast at this camp.
There is no refrigeration available.
Troops of Brownies and higher level are invited to spend Saturday night at camp.
It is very important that we have accurate counts of day only vs overnight in order to ensure that there are enough tenting space. When building your roster, please pay careful attention (and double check) that you selected the correct options for each participant.
Each troop must provide their own tent and sleeping gear. It is recommended to only pack what you need.
The main camping area does not have electricity. If you have a health issues that requires electricity, please talk with the Camp Committee to make accommodations.
Daisies generally do not spend the night at spring camp. Instead, Daisy Day is a structured program put on by Cadette Scouts that runs from 9AM until 5PM on Saturday during camp.
Daisies may spend the night under two scenarios:
- Their older sister and a parent are also spending the night with the older sibling’s troop.
- 1st grade Daisies who are part of a mixed (multi-level) troop.
Individual troops may place other restrictions on their overnight Daisies, such as requiring a parent/guardian stay overnight with their Daisies. It is our experience that Daisy troops are generally not prepared for the unstructured nature of spring camp. For our littlest scouts yearning to spend a whole weekend at camp, we encourage you to enjoy the Daisy Day and then plan to come out to Golden Pond for Summer Camporee.
If you have any questions about this policy please contact the Camp Committee.
Tag-a-longs are unregistered minor children. Only children who are not eligible to be girl members are eligible to be tag-a-longs (boys and preschool girls). Girls who are in kindergarten+ must be registered members of GSHPA. Tag-a-longs must be accompanied at all time by a parent or legal guardian.
Tag-a-longs will be charged the girl rate.
All groups are responsible for having appropriate adult/girl ratios as laid out in the GSHPA Activity Safety Checkpoints.
All adults staying overnight must be GSHPA registered and cleared. It is your responsibility to ensure that your adults are properly registered and cleared through GSHPA. Failure to have the appropriate clearances in place may prevent your entire troop from being able to attend camp. Please review our event policies.
This is a troop registration event. Troop leaders should complete the registration process for the entire troop. If you do not have a troop or your troop is not attending, please contact the camp committee.
For each participant you will need to have parental contact information, emergency contact information (someone who is NOT at camp), allergy information, any medical/cultural items that camp needs to be aware of, and if we have photo release (check box located at the bottom of the GSHPA general permission/health form).
Remember, you do not need to do your whole roster at once. You can add girls one at a time as they commit to you and then submit when you have answers from your whole troop.
If you have girls who will NOT be following the troop schedule, please indicate so in their registration comments.
200 spaces are available for this event.
