Changes for Summer Camp 2021
While camp may not look like “normal” this summer, we’re focused on
planning the enjoyable and meaningful experiences our girls and
caregivers expect and appreciate, with added precautions.
This summer you can expect to see programs that are:
SMALLER – Campers will be in small unit groups with 2-3
dedicated counselors. Camp schedules will be intentionally modified
to limit all-camp gatherings.
CLEANER – We will continue to follow the diligent cleanliness
standards we established during Family Camp last summer. All shared
program areas and equipment will be sanitized between uses,
bathrooms and high-touch surfaces will be sanitized multiple times a
day and an increased focus will be put on campers washing hands and
using hand sanitizer.
SAFER – We will be in line with all NYS guidelines for
COVID-19 safety and following industry best practices recommended by
the American Camp Association. Our healthcare practices will be
fully revised, including COVID-19 testing for staff, the most
up-to-date standing orders as reviewed by a physician and updated
camper/staff screenings both before and during camp.
New for 2021, we will have a voluntary, 3-tiered pricing system.
Realizing that families have different abilities to pay, we are
instituting a voluntary fee structure. Choose the tier that’s best for
Tier A – Our traditionally subsidized cost, representing a
Tier B – Partially subsidized cost, representing a $50
Tier C – Closest to the TRUE cost of camp, if you’re able to
pay this amount—please do so
If additional support is needed to make camp possible for your girl,
financial assistance is available for registered Girl Scouts. Please
fill out this request form and
submit it online.
We've created a Parent Resources page to help you prepare. This
page will be updated with important documents as we get closer to
camp. Thank you for your continued patience as state and county health
guidelines related to COVID-19 may change as reopening progresses.
