Fall School Information

* For Financial Aid Availability please contact the Council Office


1.     NO Alcohol is permitted on Girl Scout Property

2.    Smoking of cigarettes is ONLY permitted in fire circles.  Adults are asked to bring a small tin to use as an ashtray.  No “butts” should be thrown into the fire or fire circle.  The tin should be taken home and disposed of.

3.    Driving at Camp – Driving is not permitted in camp.  If you need a ride, please let us know.  We will do everything we can to facilitate your movement around camp. 

4.    Three Step Rule – If you see a vehicle driving on the road on which you are walking, take 3 steps away from the road.  When the vehicle has passed, resume your travels.

5.    Sign up on the Kaper Chart in your unit to help keep it clean.  You should sign into the site on the sheet provided in the unit house and sign up for a job.  This will facilitate leaving a place better than we found it. 

6.    Recycling – there are recycling containers at each site.  Please help us in this important effort and make sure recyclables make it to the recyclable dumpster.

7.    As always, if you see something amiss, report it.  If you see trash, pick it up.  Help us keep it clean.
