For more than 100 years, Girl Scouts have discovered outdoor adventures full of learning, challenges, friendships, and tons of fun by going to camp. Join us in the great outdoors over the summer to start creating your own camp story!
Through our program registration and reservation site, you can register for day camp, overnight camp, year-round programs for troops or individual campers, and book troop-led camp reservations!
If you have used the registration site before, use your current log-in information! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you forgot your username and/or password. Please note: the program registration site is not the same system as MyGS and requires a separate activation and login.
If this is your first time logging in, you must create an account. Click “Create an Account” and follow the instructions to create your family account.
Any Girl Scout who is a registered member of GSGCNWI is eligible to receive financial assistance for one day or overnight camp program per year. GSGCNWI makes funds available for participants whose caregivers could otherwise not afford the cost of camp. Assistance is distributed based on available funds. Questions about financial assistance can be sent to email@example.com
How to receive financial aid:
Register for summer camp and only pay the deposit. Camp registration must be completed prior to applying for financial aid.
Complete the Girl Scout Financial Assistance Application which is available at girlscoutsgcnwi.org/financial-assistance#camp
Approved financial assistance will be deducted from the total owed for the summer camp program.
If payment of deposit or other factors pose a barrier, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
Join us for an amazing summer at day camp! Enjoy spending time outdoors, building friendships, and learning new skills, while continuing to develop your courage, confidence, and character. Every program will include traditional camp activities including, but not limited to, exploring nature, making crafts, conducting science experiments, playing games, and cooking over a fire.
Our Day Camps:
All day camp programs run 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. C.S.T., Monday through Friday, with an optional extended day on Thursday for campers in grades 4+.
Day campers can arrive and depart camp each day by using personal transportation or by registering to ride a chartered school bus for an additional fee to Camp Greene Wood or Camp Palos. The transportation method must be determined at time of registration.
Please Note: Bus transportation is not available for half-day camp programs, during evening extended day pick-up, or for those who choose to register for the add-on Before-Camp and After-Camp program. Bus transportation locations differ week to week. Please refer to the Summer Camp Guide for more details.
Day camp families who need an earlier camp drop-off or later pick-up can choose to register for the Before-Camp and After-Camp Program.
This is an add-on program that requires campers to be registered for a camp program happening during the same week.
Campers can be dropped off as early as 7:30 a.m. and stay as late as 6:00 p.m. A light breakfast and an afternoon snack are included as part of this program.
We have many hard working, enthusiastic, and dedicated volunteers who work together to plan, prepare, and run week-long day camp programs for individuals in their service units. If you are interested in attending one of these programs, or for more information, please refer to the full camp guide or contact your service unit manager.
Overnight camp programs provide you with the opportunity to expand your comfort zone and achieve more than you thought you could! Overnight camp offers a variety of overnight programs. Every program will include traditional camp activities like swimming, hiking, making crafts, playing games, cooking over a fire, and making new friends! Campers can choose to stay for a three-day sampler, a week, or longer. Weeklong programs begin Sunday afternoon and run through Friday evening.
Our Overnight Camps:
Backcountry trips involve intensive, next-level primitive camping. It’s a great opportunity to take a trip “off the grid” and learn how to work with a group in the wilderness. Campers will take an active role in organizing trip details, carrying or paddling all gear, cooking meals over a fire, purifying water, navigation, and following the Leave No Trace principles as they explore the great outdoors. Backcountry trips provide a great opportunity to practice skills and leadership at every level!
Our overnight camp locations run backcountry programs level 1-4. Look for backcountry levels listed in overnight camp program descriptions.
