Camp 2020 Open - Feature Story v2

Registration for Summer Camp opens November 20!

Our Summer Camps give campers the opportunity to meet people of different backgrounds in a safe environment, without judgments and expectations of the outside world. In a community free of electronic devices, campers focus on interacting with one another in a natural setting.

Each of our camps provides a unique experience and come with their own fun-filled activities that will leave girls wanting more outside adventure time!

Types of Summer Camp:

Day Camp

Campers will build their courage and self-confidence through our Day Camp programs. Camp staff will be there to help girls build resilience and independence during the day, while spending the night at home. Girls will spend their days growing and learning through intentional activities and programs that fit specific themes.

To give your girl more adventure, optional one-night overnights, Night Lights, and Family Nights are offered on specific weeks. 

Locations:

Camp Oak Spring | Somerset, NJ

Camp Inawendiwin | Tabernacle, NJ

Camp Sacajawea | Newfield, NJ

Sleepaway Camp

Campers will continue to build their self-confidence and independence while at our Sleepaway Camp program. Girls will be able to choose their activities, and deepen their relationship with the outdoors, all while fostering their creativity by unplugging from the digital world. Whether she spends four days or six weeks with us, you’ll see a more mature and independent girl at home by the end of the summer.

Summer Camp Info:

Financial Assistance

We believe that every girl should have the opportunity to go to Summer Camp. GSCSNJ offers Council Cares to those who need assistance paying for camp. Please complete the Council Cares Form and send to customercare@gscsnj.org to start the process. All applicants for Summer Camp financial assistance must be current registered members of Girl Scouts.

Early application is recommended.

CampDoc Information

CampDoc.com is the electronic health record management system we utilize during summer camp. It will help us consolidate and integrate camper health information into a centralized and secure location. The CampDoc system will give our Health Supervisors and Nurses instant access to camper health information, a key component in providing patient care. Families who used the CampDoc system last summer will not have to re-enter all of the camper’s information. All you have to do is update and make any necessary corrections.

The security, confidentiality, and privacy of your campers’ personal health information will always be protected. The CampDoc.com site is secure, encrypted, and password protected.

You will receive a “Welcome E-mail” from CampDoc.com with information about how to set up your account and complete your camper's health information within 2 weeks of your registration being processed.

If you have any questions regarding CampDoc, please email bclemson@gscsnj.org.

CampDoc Tip: Make sure to set register@campdoc.com as a “safe sender” to avoid accidental delivery of emails from CampDoc to junk and spam folders.
