Prepare to Camp

We’re so excited that you’ve chosen to camp with us! Girl Scouts has nearly 100 years of experience in providing excellent, safe camps for girls, and we will do everything to make sure your camper has a great experience this year.

If you are attending one of our council-run summer camps, resident camp, day camp, troop adventure camp (TAC), or special events, please follow the step below.

2. Complete Required Camp Forms

First Time Campers:

You will receive a welcome email from within two weeks of registering for camp. This email will allow you to access the CampDoc website to complete your camper’s information profile.

  • Click the link in the email. You will set up a password for your CampDoc account
  • Follow the instructions to complete the required information and forms for your camper.
  • Return to CampDoc at any time to make changes or updates to your camper’s profile.

Camper profiles must be completed by May 15th.

Camper profiles will be locked to changes on the Monday prior to their first session. Any changes after that date, you will need to call the appropriate camp office.


Returning Campers:

Log on to and update any information on your camper’s profile. Your 2020 camp sessions should show in CampDoc within two weeks of registering for camp.

Any additional waivers will appear in your profile after you camp session is confirmed in CampDoc.

3. Get packing!

Use our packing lists as a starting point to ensure your camper has everything she needs for her stay.

4. Map Your Route

Driving directions are available in your Camper Confirmation Packet. Please check your chosen GPS app to ensure the driving directions match the confirmation packets, as some GPS are not accurate for all properties.

5. Pencil in your check-in and check-out

Review our check-in/drop-off and check-out/pick-up times and procedures and write them down somewhere you'll remember (and it wouldn't hurt to make sure you've got those locations down, too!).

6. Address your concerns & get her prepared for the best summer ever!
