Day Camps (Service Unit)

Camp Registration Notice - May 4

The health and safety of our Girl Scouts, families, volunteers and staff is always our highest priority. After much consideration of the public health data on COVID-19 and its spread in our community, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all 2020 summer camp programs through August 9. We know that this news is disappointing to our campers and families, and we ask for your patience and understanding as we navigate these unprecedented times.

We have been following closely the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in our state. We have reviewed guidance from medical experts, Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA), the Georgia Department of Public Health, the CDC and the American Camp Association. Although the pandemic is a constantly evolving situation, the information shows our community is not at the point of recovery, and gathering large groups of campers and staff presents too great a risk of further community transmission. After careful deliberation, we determined that continuing with 2020 summer camp was not a safe, responsible course of action. You can find more detailed information on our blog.
