You're a Force of Nature, Girl Scout!

And you're ready for more outdoor adventures.

Whether you’re discovering wildlife in your own backyard, swimming in a lake for the first time at summer camp, or being a citizen scientist observing bees in your neighborhood park, every outdoor adventure grows your "I’ve got this" attitude. And once you unlock that confidence, you'll aim as high as the stars you see outside your cabin window.

Girl Scout summer camps and troop camping are a great way to seek challenges, explore and adventure, learn new skills, make new friends, and develop a deep appreciation for nature.

Summer is when some of the most fun memories are made, but did you know it’s also an awesome opportunity to grow, learn, and become your best self?

Here are some amazing benefits you’ll get from a summer camp or outdoor troop camping experience!

At any camp you choose, you'll make new friends, have tons of time for play, and be all you can be! Join us this summer!

Summer Camp FAQs

(All sessions subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances..)

Does my girl need to be a Girl Scout to register for summer camp?

No! Our overnight and day camps are open to all and we encourage campers to bring a friend, Girl Scout or not! If your camper would like to become a registered Girl Scout before camp, simply register here!

Non-members have a $50 fee added during the camp registration process. Non-members may choose whether they’d like to use this amount toward becoming a registered Girl Scout or not. If you decide to join, the fee will be used for your Girl Scouts annual membership!

Does GSNYPENN offer financial aid for summer camp?

Yes, financial assistance is available for registered Girl Scouts. Please register for camp before submitting for financial aid to ensure your camper's spot. Then, fill out this aid request form and submit it online. If you have any further questions, please contact

What training do GSNYPENN camp staff & volunteers receive?

All staff receives extensive training prior to the arrival of all campers. Training includes activity programming and outdoor skills, health and safety, emergency procedures, age-level characteristics, meeting camper needs, dealing with homesickness, sanitizing and other COVID-19 response protocols and much more. Staff who supervise and instruct high adventure or specialty activities are required to have additional training and qualifications.

What is the ratio of GSNYPENN staff & volunteers to summer campers?

The ratio is based upon camper age and follows GSUSA guidelines. There will be at least two staff members present with the girls at
all times.

Staff to camper ratios:

Daisies (Grade 1) 1:6
Brownies (Grades 2-3) 1:6
Juniors (Grades 4-5) 1:8
Cadettes (Grades 6-8) 1:10
Seniors (Grades 9-10) 1:10
Ambassadors (Grades 11-12) 1:10
What safety standards are followed at GSNYPENN summer camp?

Our camps are required to meet established standards set by state and local health departments, GSUSA and where applicable, the American Camp Association (ACA) for health and safety, site, program and personnel. Each camp is inspected twice a summer by the county health department in which the camp is located.

COVID-19 safety protocols may be mandated by state and county health departments and are strictly enforced. These protocols are ever-changing, so we appreciate your patience as we make the camp experience as safe as possible.

Campers will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test on the first day of camp. Parents may elect to have testing done on their own within 72 hours of camp check-in. If testing is not available in your area, rapid testing will be available onsite at all camps during the check-in process.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as this is still a very fluid and ever-evolving situation. If you have further questions, please contact

What if I do not have a computer or internet to complete my camper’s health profile?

We encourage parents/guardians to complete their camper’s health profile online through CampDoc. If you are absolutely unable to do so, please contact us at 1.315.698.9400 or 1.800.943.4414 to mail forms to you. You will need to complete the forms and send them back to our Syracuse Service Center (960 James Street, Fl. 2, Syracuse, NY 13203) at least two weeks before your camper’s session, along with their immunization list and physical form.

What is Troop Core Camp?

Troop Core Camp is the perfect program for a troop that wants to enjoy a camping experience as a group. Camp staff facilitates programming including archery, waterfront, arts and crafts, and more.
