Announcements
    Getting To Camp - Where Do I Go?
    Coming in to the Park.  Stop at the gate and tell the gate keeper you are with Girl Scouts.  They will give you a pass - this pass is good for the entire week.
Please watch your speed while driving in camp - Speed limits are enforced, and we have many children walking.  Cones are set up to limit traffic, please do not go around the cones.  The roads are paved, so it is tempting to drive fast, however, please keep to the posted speeds.

  • Site Volunteers (adults working at Site 3) are pre-approved to drive to their sites and park there after checking in
  • Unit Guides (adults supervising a unit of Girl Scouts or siblings) should park in the Daily Volunteer parking lot by Site 2
  • Everyone else - check in at Site 5/Camp Headquarters
  • Few helpful reminders:  First day check in is always stressful and chaotic.  Please be patient with us.  We will get your child where they need to be and get you where you need to be.  Issues will be addressed as soon as possible.  Don’t let bumps in the road get you down – we will resolve any issues as soon as possible.  Having a great time at camp is our priority.  
  • Picking your children up early: If you have to get your child early, you will need to check in at HQ and we will find and bring your child to HQ.  Please bring ID so that we can confirm that you are authorized. Do NOT drive around camp looking for your child.  Unit Leadership WILL NOT release your child from the site.

Twilight Camp is Under Way!

We're only checking email occasionally during the day now. If you have any questions please call Camp Headquarters at (612) 419-5461

Adult Volunteer Changes
If you can't make it tell us immediately. Call the camp voice mail at (612) 419-5461 

Parents/Babysitters/Nannies/Guardians


It happens every year...you're running late so you ask your sitter/spouse/partner/older child to swing by camp and pick up your child. They pull into camp at 7:30, see the child standing by her friends, tell her to hop in, and take off...and she leaves without signing out.

 

Unfortunately, we don't know she got picked up...and our assumption is that she's still camp. While we frantically call your mobile phone to confirm where she is, the older girls begin scouring the woods and the adults head to the beach to begin an underwater grid search looking for a submerged swimmer. Meanwhile we alert Carver County Fire and Rescue, Three Rivers Parks spins up their helicopter, and the County Sheriff

SIGN YOUR CAMPER OUT!
