As we learned in summer 2021, camp can be run during a pandemic. We are excited for the woods to come alive again during Summer 2022 with laughter, fun, adventure, and friendship! Safety is a cornerstone of Girl Scouting. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking special precautions to keep our campers and staff safe and healthy, including increased cleaning measures, reduced capacities, adjusted program and operational procedures, and detailed training for our summer camp and full-time staff. As our regulations are updated, GSEMA will update all procedures and communicate them with families. We are monitoring recommendations from the CDC, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, New Hampshire Department of Health, American Camp Association and GSUSA. Camp plans are subject to change based on all of these factors, but our current plan is to operate camp in summer, 2022, based on the schedules described on our website. Any changes to these schedules will be communicated via our website, email, and social media.
