Troop Camping is Back!

New troop camping opportunities at GSTOP-owned properties will be available soon.

Things to do before requesting a weekend:

  • Verify all troop girls and volunteers have a current Girl Scout membership. Only currently registered girls and volunteers will have access to camp properties. No tagalongs are allowed at this time.
  • All troop camping is currently at 50% capacity.
  • Talk with your troop about what dates and which camp you wish to reserve.
    • You may request multiple weekends but will be approved for only one.
    • When you choose a camp, you also may select your preference for location within the camp.
  • Review the information below under Things to Know Before You Go.

New dates for the fall will be available soon.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Only currently registered girls and volunteers will have access to camp properties.
  • Each camp has a 50% capacity limit for camp lodging. Each camp also has two sets of 10 spots (two persons per tent) available for tent camping.
  • You must follow the Texas state guidelines under “Overnight Youth Camp Operators,” “Overnight Youth Camp Families,” and “Youth Clubs.”
    • When maintaining 6 feet of separation is not feasible, use other methods to slow the spread of COVID-19, such as washing or sanitizing hands frequently and avoiding sharing utensils or other common objects.
    • Make hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, soap, and water (or similar disinfectants) readily available.
    • All individuals age 10 and older must wear a face covering (over the nose and mouth) wherever it is not feasible to maintain 6 feet of social distance from another individual not in the same household or, for those engaging in physical activities outdoors, wherever the individual is not able to maintain a safe physical distance from others not in the same household.
    • Once arriving at camp, do not have contact with the outside community until the camp session ends, including leaving the camp for school or family functions.
  • Troops and service units must provide their own food. Food may be cooked, plated, and served to the individual groups by one person.
  • Carpooling: It is imperative to take all safety precautions when girls are travelling in motor vehicles. Coronavirus transmission risk is high when people are less than 6 feet apart. The risk increases when people are in a closed area or indoors for longer than 15 minutes. When transporting girls, always space out the girls to avoid crowding, have girls wear a mask, and keep the windows partially open to provide ventilation. Make sure parents are aware ahead of time if girls will be in a car together. Always—for every in-person event, meeting, or transportation arrangement—conduct the prescreening process. Individual parent drop-offs and pick-ups are also an option.
  • Camping at non-Girl Scout locations is allowed by following state guidelines, receiving approval of a completed troop camping request, and following Girl Scout Safety Activity Checkpoints.
  • If we must close Camp Kiwanis, Camp Rio Blanco, or Stevens Ranch before your arrival, we will automatically cancel your reservation and issue a full refund.

We know this is a lot of information, so please read our FAQ. You may ask us about camp reservations, guidelines, and usage at customercare@gs-top.org.

We look forward to welcoming girls and volunteers back to camp!
