Many of these activities are weather dependent. In the event of sub-optimal weather we will substitute other activities and still have an awesome time that keeps all our scouts safe. There is no such thing as bad weather, only ill prepared people.

Participants not coming for the entire weekend will NOT complete their entire badges.

Daisies will earn Space Science Explorer.

Brownies will earn Space Science Adventurer.

Juniors will earn Space Science Investigator.

Cadettes will earn Night Owl.

Seniors will work on their Paddling badge or another program of their choice.

Ambassadors may work on a program of their choice. Please work with the camp committee to ensure that we have the resources you need to succeed.

Lodging

Lodging will be assigned by camp coordinators based on group size and needs. If you would like to tent, you can bring your own or Camp Golden Pond has several tents that are available for use.

Please indicate any preferences or special needs in the registration comments.

New Scouts

This camp is open to all registered Girl Scouts.

Girls looking to join a troop for the upcoming scouting year, can register now for an extended year option and attend summer camp with us. Girls without a troop must attend with a parent or guardian.

Pricing

Early registration for overnight participants will run from March 31st until May 24th.

Regular registration will run until June 9th (or camp is full).

To qualify for early registration rates, all fees must be paid no later than May 24. Regular rate fees are due no later than June 16th.

Girl Scout Sibling* Adult Leader In Training**
Weekend $60 ($50 early) $50 ($40 early) $30 ($25 early) $35
Day Only $40 $30 $20 NA

*Sibling: Girl Scouts or tag-a-longs with sisters attending camp at the full rate are eligible for the “Sibling” rate. Please note the name of the sister in the registration notes.

**Leader in Training: 8th grade and older Girl Scouts who would like to participate in our “Leader in Training” program.  Leaders in Training will run activities for younger scouts.

There will be 1-2 mandatory pre-camp training meetings that girls will need to attend. We will send out programming guides and requirements by the end of May so that our Leaders in Training will have an opportunity to review their programs and add their own spin to it.

Leaders in Training are expected to be at camp for the entire weekend and will earn volunteer hours for their service. We encourage (but do not require) our Leaders in Training to arrive with the camp preparatory team on Thursday evening.

While our Leaders in Training will get time to relax, camp, and work on their own program, their focus for the weekend will be helping out with programming for the younger girls. Older girls who are NOT interested in participating in the Leader in Training program should register at the “Girl Scout” rate. If you have any questions about whether or not this program is right for you, please contact us.

Facilitators: Adult facilitators are not charged for the day they are facilitating activities.  If you are interested in facilitating a camp activity (archery, canoeing, or fishing), please let us know.

Tag-a-longs: Tag-a-longs are minor children who are not registered Girl Scouts. Children who are eligible for Girl Scout membership (Girls in grades K-12) must join Girl Scouts and register as a Girl Scout. Tag-a-longs must be accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times.

Financial Assistance: Financial assistance may be available through council. To apply for financial aid from council, click here.

Camperships: Families from Service Unit 416 who require assistance can apply for a “campership.”  Our funds are extremely limited so we do ask that anyone seeking financial aid first apply through council. If you are unable to obtain aid through council, please send a letter to the camp committee explaining your situation and how much aid you are requesting.

Feel free to contact the camp committee if you have any questions about pricing.

Registration Instructions

All registrations should be done online. When registering you will need to know the following information for each participant:

  • Name and age/grade level
  • Parental contact information for minors
  • Emergency contact information (someone NOT at camp)
  • Allergies/restrictions – be specific! Our definition of kosher or vegetarian may not match yours.

Other things to note on your registration are lodging preferences and groupings (if you want to be near another troop) or special needs such as electricity for medical devices.

Troop Registration

If you are part of a troop attending Summer Camporee, talk to your troop leader. Troop leaders can choose to handle the troop registration themselves, or ask individual parents to register on their own.

Note that if want your parents to be able to pay their camp fees directly to the Service Unit online, they must do their own registrations. Troop leaders will be able to view and manage their whole roster even if individual parents register themselves.

If you ask your parents to register themselves, please remind them that they need to have an account on our site (NOT the same as their GSHPA account) and they must be able to receive our emails. Because we are a small site, we are not whitelisted by any email providers and overly aggressive spam filters will not deliver our mail. Please check your settings with both your provider and email client.

Troops are responsible for providing enough adults to meet the GSHPA Safety Activity Checkpoints girl/adult ratios. Ratio adults must be registered and cleared through GSHPA.

Individual Registration

If you are not part of troop attending Summer Camporee, you must be accompanied by a parent/guardian who will remain with you at camp. All adults staying overnight must be registered and cleared through GSHPA.

Grade Level and Badge Program

Please select the grade level for your Girl Scout to reflect the badge program she intends to complete. Girls who are bridging can choose to complete their current level’s badge or the badge for the level they are bridging into.

Adult Volunteers

Camp is an all volunteer run event and the volunteers are the attending adults.

All overnight adults must be registered and cleared through GSHPA.

Everyone “working” the camp registers for camp and pays the registration fees. Adults attending camp are expected to help with camp activities – supervising stations, check-in, check-out, dining hall operations, etc.

146 spaces are available for this event.

  1. How can I register for your service unit? I’m from GSWPA but I’m from Clearfield and would like to get involved with some of your activities, since we do live closer to you. We are also very interested in the summer camporee.

    1. Deanna, I just approved your registration. You should have a confirmation email with a link (which is the same link you went to to build your roster). Thanks!

  2. Hi Megan~ I just need the approval email to attend camp, then final step to pay for camp! Many Thanks
