GSGST members may now camp in both family and troop camp settings
following the same in-person activity size and location guidance above.
At least one volunteer must have the appropriate GSGST camp
certification training. For camping at GSGST properties, that
means TR301: GSGST Camping. For camping at non-GSGST properties, that
means TR302: On the Road Camping. TR303: Camp Recertification is now
available in gsLearn. Due to COVID-19, any camp certifications that
expired in 2020 will be extended through the same date in 2021.
During overnight activities, face coverings are not required when
engaged in eating, drinking, bathing, etc. but the timing of these
activities should be staggered to allow for physical distancing.
Additionally, face coverings are not required while members are
physically in their bunks, beds, sleeping bags, etc. or while
sleeping. However, physical distancing guidelines should be followed
within the sleeping area with members divided evenly throughout the
structure rather than all in one area.
GSGST camp properties will have certain limits on cabin sizes,
groups, etc. based on the specific layout and safety needs of each
facility. Additionally, camp staff will be following camp-specific
protocols such as daily screenings including temperature checks while
members are on property.
Volunteers planning camping activities at non-GSGST facilities must
submit the 2020-2021 GSGST Activity Approval Request Form and receive
approval before planning.
Safety information and any additional activity protocols should be
provided to all participants before the camping trip takes place.
Additionally, proper permission forms should be collected,
All participants or parents/caregivers must submit the GSGST
Event/Meeting/Overnight Waiver form. A copy of this form will be sent
to the troop leader email address provided on the form.
Each parent/caregiver/volunteer should complete the GSGST COVID-19
Pre-Screening Form (Word)(PDF) just before the camping trip. These
responses should be kept for 30 days after the activity, along with a
roster of everyone who attended. Volunteers may collect the
pre-screening form information through email or an online survey using
the same language on the form. Potential attendees who answer yes to
any of the questions should not attend the in-person Girl Scout
camping trip. Temperature checks are permitted but not required as
part of pre-screening.
Troops can use the customizable Troop Activity Permission Form for
things that may be considered high adventure, sensitive in nature, or
that the troop leader would like to get specific permission for.
