Coming Soon: Meadow Mountain Ranch will soon be available for Girl Scout groups to use for day hikes, and the Nature Trail and accompanying patch program. We are currently monitoring fire conditions in the Meadow Mountain Ranch area, but look for a blog post with the details on how to reserve the Meadow Mountain Ranch Nature Trail when it opens for troop and Girl Scout group use later this month!

NOTE: Given the developing and quickly changing nature of COVID-19 in our communities, GSCO reserves the right to cancel any Troop Day program at any point if there is a concern for the health and safety of staff or participants. Additionally, as we head into the winter season, if the weather makes road travel to camp unsafe or is determined to be unsafe for participants to be outside, we also reserve the right to cancel a program. If we need to cancel a Troop Day program, all registered participants will be given a full refund and we will work with the group leader to reschedule the program.

We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.
