Troops & Camporees Rentals

kpccampfire1Camping is an important part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Girls develop independence, resourcefulness and respect for themselves and the environment at camp. They learn trust, teamwork and their own strengths. Best of all, they have lots of FUN!

All of our camping properties offer exciting opportunities for both camping with your troop or as a camporee. Troop camping is a year-round camping experience of 24 or more consecutive hours planned and carried out by a group of girls and their leaders at a council property or council-approved site.

A Camporee is defined as a camping experience hosted by a Service Unit that includes multiple troops from within the SU.  The event needs to be a minimum of 24 consecutive hours. A camporee is planned and carried out by a community of Girl Scouts-  troops and adult volunteers – during which a minimum of two all-camp activities are offered to bring together the Service Unit community.

Before a troop or camporee can stay overnight at one of our camp properties, there are required trainings that a troop leader must have. Please contact our Camping Services Manager to verify what level of training is required for your type of camping trip.

You can see facility pictures and amenities offered in each unit or building on the Facilities/Virtual Map page under each camp.

Online Troop Camping Reservations

Troops are now able to view campsite availability and reserve units online with a credit card.
We are using the same system as our summer camp registration, so if you had a camper attend camp this past summer you already have an account!

 

To access the online reservation system:
Note – we only accept reservations 3 months in advance. 

For April 2017-September 2017 reservations, please click HERE.

For October 2017-March 2018 reservations – COMING SOON!

  • Once in the system, to make viewing easier click on Calendar View.
  • From the calendar you can easily scroll through and see what units are available.
  • On the calendar page you are also able to filter your camping options by, camp location, camping date and/or unit style
  • You can find out specifics about the unit by clicking on the unit name.

There is a $5 registration fee that will automatically be applied to your order for each unit you select.

 

Once you go through the entire registration process and enter your payment information, you will receive an automatic email confirmation for your weekend with important information about your visit and instructions on how to select activities. This will take the place of the packet that has previously been mailed. You will also receive an electronic receipt for your purchase, and if you do not have an Active Account already, you will receive an invitation to create one. This will make future reservations a snap!

Paper registration will still be available, but the online system will make your reservation instantly if the unit is available.

 

Units will be available for booking (either online or paper) three months in advance.

 

 

Camporees should not use this method for reservations. If you are interested in hosting a camporee, please continue to complete the SU Camporee Request form found in the forms and resources section and submit up to 13 months in advance.

Troop Camping Reservations

Troops are welcome to submit a request for a campsite up to three months in advance of the date. If the unit requested is not available someone will contact you as soon as possible. You will receive a confirmation packet via e-mail to confirm your reservation, within two weeks. If you do not receive a response, please contact our Camping Services Manager.
Troops should submit the Troop Camp Reservation Request Form with their top three dates and units. We will do our best to place the troop in their first choice.
Before a troop can stay overnight on camp property in a self-contained facility (lodge style, everyone in the same building), someone in the troop must complete the Be Safe, Be Ready online course. There are two parts to this online training – Outings and Overnights and Girl Planning. After completion, leader will receive an Overnight License.
Before a troop can stay overnight at our resident camps, an adult with the troop must have an Overnight License. The Overnight License is earned by completing the two online Be Safe, Be Ready courses (Outings and Overnights and Girl Planning).

  • In order to build a fire and cook marshmallows or a meal, a Cook Out License is required. Earn it by first holding an Overnight License and then attending Fire Building and Outdoor Cooking skills classes.
  • Troops planning to pitch and sleep in tents OR to camp at a non-council facility will need a Camp License. Requirements are that you hold Overnight and Cook Out Licenses and complete the Tenting skills class.
  • For more information on these courses, as well as when they’re scheduled, please visit the online calendar.

Camporee Preparation

Before a troop can stay overnight at our resident camps, an adult with the troop must have an Overnight License. The Overnight License is earned by completing the two online Be Safe, Be Ready courses (Outings and Overnights and Girl Planning).

  • In order to build a fire and cook marshmallows or a meal, a Cook Out License is required. Earn it by first holding an Overnight License and then attending Fire Building and Outdoor Cooking skills classes.
  • Troops planning to pitch and sleep in tents OR to camp at a non-council facility will need a Camp License. Requirements are that you hold Overnight and Cook Out Licenses and complete the Tenting skills class.
  • For more information on these courses, as well as when they’re scheduled, please visit the online calendar.

Any day or overnight trip to a camp property requires that an adult with current CPR and first aid must accompany the troop. Additionally, the size of the camporee itself might require a Level II First Aider be on-site. Consult the Safety Activity Checkpoints and be sure that copies of all certifications are on-site during the camporee.
Carefully read the camp and unit descriptions when planning where to assign the troops for the camporee. Consider program age level, the volunteers’ level of outdoor training and the specific site requests troops have made on their forms.

Your Girl Scout Troop is welcome to come out to camp and join us for the day!

Fees for the day are based on your group size and what amenities you would like to utilize while at camp.
