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.
