Girl Scout camps inspire curiosity, discovery, and problem-solving, all while helping campers to develop courage and teamwork skills. Not only will your camper experience activities like rock climbing, archery, boating, hiking, and off-campus excursions, they will also make new friends and memories that last a lifetime!
Registration for overnight camp and day camp is now open!
We are here to help you in any way possible—please check out all the helpful information below! If you still have any questions please email your questions to CustomerCare@gssne.org, or call us at 401-331-4500 (or toll-free at 800-331-0149).
Summer Camp Forms and Resources
Please bring all completed required forms to the first day of camp.
All Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England camps are proudly accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA). This means that our camps comply with more than 300 industry-established standards in health, safety, and program. For more information about what accreditation means to you and your camper, visit acacamps.org/parents-families. All GSSNE camps follow ACA guidelines and state laws, in addition to Girl Scouts of the USA’s guidelines.
The magic of summer camp will be back this year in full force—the friends, the activities, the counselors—all waiting for YOU to experience camp like never before!
Our summer camp programming has always been focused on building social and physical skills, strengthening confidence, and helping campers to find their voice, and in today’s society, these things are more important than ever. This camping season, we will be offering both overnight and day camp options at Camp Hoffman and Camp Rocky Farm. Our programs will focus on building strong interpersonal connections with others, becoming an integral part of a community, and developing new skills Girl Scouts will carry with them throughout their lifetime. All of our programs will offer our traditional camp activities like archery, hiking, swimming and boating, campfires and smores, and so much more, with an added twist based on the theme you register for. If you are joining us for day camp, don’t forget about the optional Thursday night campout!
GSSNE is continually updating its COVID-19 protocols to meet guidelines set by the CDC, state guidelines, and the American Camp Association suggestions.
Although we do not currently have any covid restrictions, we are:
We suspect that we will encounter changes between now and the start of camp therefore we will be releasing more camp specific information closer to the start of camp.
You may be used to receiving a more traditional summer camp program guide, but in an effort to use resources wisely, and to keep programming current and accessible, we’re moving to a one-stop-shop approach to signing up for camp on our website, allowing you to register with the click of a button! If you'd prefer to view our programs in a printed format, check out our shortened summer camp guide!
Yes! All of our camp programs are designed with Girl Scout badges in mind. All campers will have had completed at least one badge by the end of each camp session. All badges will be available for purchase in the camp trading post or at the GSSNE council shop.
If your Girl Scout has already earned the designated badge with their troop or individually, there are always camp fun patches for purchase in the camp trading post or at the GSSNE council shop.
Yes! We offer several leadership opportunities and older camper programs at our summer camps. We provide the training and experience you'll need to become our next great counselor!
Any girl or gender-expansive youth! Whether or not your child was previously registered for a camp program, they now have access to attend any (ALL) of the summer activities for their age level. If you’re new to Girl Scouts, or curious about what Girl Scouts is all about, now is a great time to experience the magic of Girl Scouts!
Yes! The day camp experience begins with songs, laughter, and meeting new friends on the bus! If you wish to use the bus, sign up for your preferred bus stop location when you register for camp.
NOTE: Due to normal morning and afternoon traffic, our buses are occasionally delayed! Please plan to be available for a 30-minute window during both your bus stop drop-off and pick-up times. Any adults picking up a camper will be required to show a photo ID.
YES! Girl Scout Cookies can power an amazing adventure!
GSSNE has adjusted the Summer Camp Cookie Credit ranges to bring us into better compliance with GSUSA and IRS guidelines. Camperships will also still be available to those who need them. GSSNE aims to ensure that any Girl Scout who wants to go to camp has that opportunity, regardless of her family’s ability to pay!
Cookie credits begin at $10 for 50 packages and go up in $5 increments for every 25 packages sold. Credits may be pooled by sisters in the same family (if transferring, the Camp Cookie Credit Transfer form must be completed). Summer Camp Cookie Credits cannot be transferred outside of families and can only be applied to GSSNE Summer Camp. Girls in troops who choose Older Girl Proceeds do not earn Camp Cookie Credits.
We believe that every child should have an opportunity to experience summer camp! To that end, we encourage applying for our camp scholarships. Nothing should stand in the way of a summer filled with friendship, fun and new-found confidence. All girls and gender-expansive youth are welcome to attend camp without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, or socio-economic status.
Thanks to the generosity of individuals, civic organizations, and foundations, camp scholarships to attend GSSNE summer camp programs are available for children who, without this assistance, would not be able to attend Girl Scout camp.
We recommend completing and mailing the Camp Scholarship Application and required documentation to GSSNE as soon as possible since our funds are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Completed applications may be mailed to GSSNE, 500 Greenwich Ave, Warwick, RI 02886. Financial aid applications are evaluated on a rolling basis.
