National Virtual Camp Marketplace

We may not be able to be at camp together in person this summer, but across the country Girl Scout staff and volunteers are planning ways for girls to participate in camp virtually! Girl Scouts are now able to visit a virtual camp marketplace hosted by Girl Scouts of the USA to register for virtual camps through sister Girl Scout councils nationwide. Explore the camps at the virtual marketplace to discover themed camps, live virtual events, and plenty of activities to complete away from the screen, independently, or with a caregiver.  Explore the virtual camp marketplace here: https://www.girlscouts.org/en/girl-scouts-at-home/camp-adventures.html

Note: GSCO Camp Staff are continuing to develop contingency plans for summer programming, stay tuned for more information later this summer.
