How many camps are there in our council, and where are they?
GSCSA is home to three camps: Camp Adahi in Cloudland, Georgia, Camp Tanasi in Andersonville, Tennessee, and Camp Wildwood in Johnson City, Tennessee.
What is Summer Resident Camp?
Summer Resident Camp is when girls come "live" at camp from anywhere from three nights to two weeks! There are many different weeks and activities to choose from. Don't miss our camp-specific FAQ section, too!
Is there financial assistance for Summer Resident Camp?
Yes. Financial assistance is available for families with financial needs for summer resident camp. Girls must be registered Girl Scouts to apply. Funds from the Girl Scout Cookie Program, area United Way organizations and contributions from businesses, friends, and families help underwrite the actual cost of resident camp, allowing us to keep fees as low as possible.
We encourage all troops to participate in GSCSA sponsored product sales. These sales allow girls to learn budgeting and goal setting skills while allowing them the opportunities to pay for shop items, uniforms, badges, and program events from sales proceeds. Participation in product sales is required to be considered for a campership.
What are the requirements to go camping as a troop?
In order for a troop to go camping at a council owned site or another off-site location within 30 minutes of medical help you MUST have the following:
- One approved volunteer with Child and Adult CPR (and/or AED) and First Aid training.
- One approved volunteer with a one-time Outdoor Basics training and a completed Camp Policies take-home exam (every three years). Cadettes and up can also take the training.
- You do not need to have the trainings and certification before you make your camp reservation but names and copies of certification cards MUST be turned in prior to your camping date.
