Now more than ever, going to camp is a big decision. At GSCSNJ
Summer Camps, you can feel at ease, knowing your daughter is well
cared for, happy, and exploring the great outdoors!
As she tells stories around the campfire, paddles a canoe, shoots a
bow and arrow, or climbs a rock wall for the first time, something in
her begins to change—she gains a sense of pride by facing her fears,
she grows as a person by learning new skills, and becomes stronger and
happier by making new friends. She comes home with a spring in her
step and a new light in her eyes.

Camp is transformative. At Girl Scout Summer Camp, campers entering
grades K-12 are encouraged to discover who they are and what they can
become while gaining independence and self-confidence. Trained, caring
staff respect and challenge them, and girls gain a better
understanding of themselves and their leadership potential. All Girl
Scout Summer Camp programs are designed with girls’ interests in mind
to grow their passions and take healthy risks in a safe, supportive environment.

Summer Camp COVID-19 Updates
We know this summer will look different, but we are excited for the
woods to come alive again with laughter, fun, and friendship. At this
time, GSCSNJ is planning and preparing for in-person Summer Camp
programs with extensive health & safety modifications.
COVID-19 risk is fluid, and the guidance provided by GSCSNJ does
not supersede more recent government guidance or
GSCSNJ plans to release the council's decision for total camp
capacity and update the COVID-19 Safety Guidelines by Memorial Day.
We believe that every girl should have the opportunity to go to
Summer Camp. GSCSNJ offers Financial Assistance to those who need help
paying for camp. Special consideration is given to families impacted by COVID-19.
By taking the necessary precautions last summer, we were able to
serve over 550 girls at our in-person Summer Camps with ZERO cases of
COVID-19. These extra safety measures allowed girls to continue
building their independence and self-confidence in a safe and fun way,
while connecting and having fun with others.
Each GSCSNJ Camp is accredited by the American Camp Association
(ACA). What does this mean to your family? It means that you are
sending your girl to a healthy, safe, and high quality program.
Maintaining accreditation is important to GSCSNJ because we hold
ourselves to the highest standards, and by undergoing routine review
of our operations, we ensure we are providing the best experience
possible for your family.
ACA camps must meet up to 300 standards for health, safety, and
program quality. These standards are recognized by courts of law and
government regulators as standards of the camp community.
Accreditation is voluntary; our continued accreditation reflects our
commitment to maintaining industry standards.
