GSNorCal Camps: 2021 Covid-19 Guide

Safety is a cornerstone of Girl Scouting, and we will continue to put the health and safety of our campers and staff first throughout the summer camp season. We are regularly monitoring COVID- 19 updates and recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA), the American Camp Association (ACA), and state and local authorities, and will continue to adjust our guidelines and processes with the goal of providing a safe and fun outdoor experience. All of our 2021 summer camp programs will be following the guidelines and processes below.

All information presented in this resource is subject to change. Guidelines and requirements may be changed and/or added at a later time pending changes in recommendations from the CDC, GSUSA, ACA, and state and local authorities.

Updated April 28, 2021

  1. Before Attending Camp

    Review our checklist of before-camp expectations and procedures to ensure that all campers are ready to partner with us in creating a healthy camp.

  2. While at Camp

    We have diligently researched best practices in the summer camp field and recommendations by the American Camp Association to introduce several interventions to help us keep campers as safe as possible this summer. Please review these policies with your camper so that they will know what to expect when they arrive at camp.

  3. Understand New Guidelines

    GSNorCal's Camps have updated several policies to better mitigate Covid-19 risk and to keep camp as safe as possible. Please review updates to our camp procedures to see how we are preparing for campers on our sites.

  4. After Camp Follow-Up

    We recommend that following a camp session, camper families continue to have their camper wear masks, social distance, and limit camper’s and family’s contact with people outside of their household (as well as keeping distance from anyone in the household who many have increased risk factors) for two weeks to ensure that they have not contracted COVID-19.


If you choose to cancel camp due to camper’s or family’s comfort level prior to June 1, 2021 or your camper is unable to attend camp due to exposure, symptoms, or a positive case of COVID-19, please contact us at
