Welcome to our NEW Girl Scout online program registration website!  If you have never registered through this system, please note you will have to create a profile with a NEW login. This system will not recognize your MY GS login and password. 


Program Description: Join GSVSC for the 56th Anniversary Camp at beautiful Camp Sacajawea. We are excited to work on the NEW Outdoor Journey! For total list of Outdoor Journey badges and requirements please visit the Volunteer Toolkit or the Badge Explorer on our website. This will require troops to come with an Outdoor Ed trained leader. Individuals may attend with an adult Girl Scout member chaperone but will be paired with a troop for outdoor skills activities such as cooking, camping and camp fires. Daily activities will be divided into age levels so girls can achieve their specific badge requirements! This is a great way for girls to meet new Girl Scout friends as well as get outside of their comfort zone. Leaders with multi level troops will be divided among age levels to even out adult ratios during daily activities. To see a tentative/subject to change schedule of camp activities click here to view. A finalized schedule will be sent out via email a week prior to camp as well as a paper copy given in Troop packets upon arrival to camp.

IMPORTANT: There are a few items girls and leaders need to have prepared before camp.

1. Plan out a meal with your Troop for Saturday night that will be cooked outside over a fire (is. foil pack, one pot, etc). Per Outdoor Ed training, there should be $8.00 per person budgeted for dinner. Bring all necessary food, materials and utensils needed for cooking when you come to camp. Each campsite unit has a refrigerator for food storage but remember you will be sharing with others. Bring coolers and plan accordingly. GSVSC will provide ice! 

2. Create a Troop Kaper Chart. Leave space for additional items you might want to add after you get to camp!

3. Organize and pool your gear. When camping its important to see what gear can be used by the group and what each individual needs. We will send out a packing list as well to make sure everyone has what they need.

 

*If your troop has Seniors & Ambassadors that would like to volunteer, please click here to register them as camp volunteers.

 

What Troop/Group positions or certifications are required for troop/groups to participate in this event:

  • Troop/Group Co-Leader

  • Troop Outdoor Education certified adult - Troops without an Outdoor Ed leader may buddy up with another troop attending camp with an Outdoor Ed leader that they coordinate prior to registering.

 

Attendance Parameters: Participants may attend as individuals with a guardian/parent/adult or with troops that provide the appropriate number of leaders and adult chaperones needed to meet the girl-to-adult ratios for their age-level. Guardian/parent/adult chaperones and troop leaders are required to stay during the entire program.
