Organizations and Private Group

With our beautiful properties and flexible range of offerings, your group’s stay will be a wonderful experience. From business retreats to weddings, our camps provide the perfect backdrop. If you have any questions about the property or activities available, we are happy to help!

Reservations

Camp is open for weekend camping from 5:00 PM Friday to 11 AM Sunday. All groups applying to use any of the GSCSNJ camps must meet use requirements and have a certified First Aider. Outdoor Training and First Aid/CPR certification is required for adults taking girls camping. 

Please note, the calendar lists all weekends with a Friday start date. (Even if you only plan to camp Saturday to Sunday, you still check availability by the Friday date.) 

Requests can be made to participate in certain activities; however, the schedule depends on instructor availability. We follow GSUSA Activity Guidelines for participation. We will make every effort to accommodate everyone coming to our camps. Your understanding and flexibility are greatly appreciated.

Camp Safety Tips

GSCSNJ wants everyone to have a safe, fun time at our camp properties. The Girl Scout motto is "Be Prepared." We ask that you go over the information below with your girls before heading out to camp.

  • Always have a buddy. Never walk anywhere alone when you're in camp. 
  • Always let an adult know where you and your buddy are going. You should agree on a time to return to your group.
  • Wear the appropriate socks and shoes. This is important to protect your feet and avoid accidents. You don't want to get blisters, cuts or scrapes on your feet - that will really cut down on your activities (No flip-flops!).
  • Dress for the weather. Check the weather forecast. Wearing layers is the easiest way to control how comfortable you feel when you're outdoors. 
  • Remember, even if it doesn't rain, the grass can be wet in the morning and evening. You might want to bring an extra pair of shoes. You'll definitely want extra socks to keep your feet dry and warm. 
  • Agree on a meeting place in camp if there is an emergency. 
  • Read GSUSA's "Activity Checkpoints" to ensure everyone's safety. Leaders, parents and girls should be familiar with these guidelines.
  • Outdoor Training and First Aid/CPR certification is required for adults taking girls camping.
