GSNETX members may now camp in both family and troop camp settings
following the same in-person activity size and location guidance above.
At least one volunteer must have the appropriate GSNETX camp
certification training. For camping at GSNETX properties, that
means TR301: GSNETX Camping. For camping at non-GSNETX properties,
that means TR302: On the Road Camping. TR303: Camp Recertification is
now available in gsLearn. Due to COVID-19, any camp certifications
that expired in 2020 will be extended through the same date in 2021.
During overnight activities, face coverings are not required when
engaged in eating, drinking, bathing, etc. but the timing of these
activities should be staggered to allow for social distancing.
Additionally, face coverings are not required while member are
physically in their bunks, beds, sleeping bags, etc. or while
sleeping. However, social distancing guidelines should be followed
within the sleeping area with members divided evenly throughout the
structure rather than all in one area.
GSNETX camp properties will have certain limits on cabin sizes,
groups, etc. based on the specific layout and safety needs of each
facility. Additionally, camp staff will be following camp-specific
protocols such as daily screenings including temperature checks while
members are on property. Registration will be available in UltraCamp
beginning 10/15/2020 at midnight.
Volunteers planning camping activities at non-GSNETX
facilities must submit the 2020-2021
GSNETX Activity Approval Request Form and receive approval
before planning. Overnight trips
are limited to 2 consecutive nights.
Safety information and any additional activity protocols should be
provided to all participants before the camping trip takes place.
Additionally, proper permission forms should be collected, including:
- All participants or parents/caregivers must submit the GSNETX Event/Meeting/Overnight Waiver form. A
copy of this form will be send to the troop leader email address
provided on the form.
- Each parent/caregiver/volunteer
should complete the GSNETX COVID-19 Pre-Screening Form just before
the camping trip— these should responses should be kept for 30 days
after the activity, along with a roster of everyone who attended.
This can be submitted via email to the designated volunteer.
Potential attendees who answer yes to any of the questions should
not attend the Girl Scout camping trip.
- Troops can use the
Activity Permission Form for things that may be considered
high adventure, sensitive in nature, or that the troop leader would
like to get specific permission for.
