Twilight Camp Week

Girl Scouts holds two Twilight Camps each summer.  This camp is Week 1, July 20-23, hosted by Northern Skies Girl Scouts (Chanhassen and surrounding areas).  Week 2 is, July 29- Aug, hosted by Autumn Ridge/Southern Stars Girl Scouts (Chaska and surrounding areas).  Girls are welcome to attend either camp but usually attend the week affiliated with their troop.

Pre-Registration Checklist

You'll need the following for each Girl Scout, Volunteer, and Sibling Care participant:
  • Health History - Physician, insurance info, medications, allergies, immunization record (kept confidential)
  • Volunteer Dates - The dates you can volunteer, if you know them, or how many days you plan to volunteer (1-4)

Cookie Credits

"Cookie Credits" are sales rewards girls can opt in for instead of the award prizes, and can be used by Girl Scout Campers and Caddies toward camp fees.  Each credit is worth $5.00.  If you're using Cookie Credits for your Girl Scout Camper or Older Girl, select the Cookie Credit option towards the bottom of the registration form.  Email with questions.

Q: Can I use Cookie Credits for an Adult T-Shirt or Sibling Care?
A: No, sorry, they can only be used toward camp fees for registered Girl Scouts

Q: I have a Cookie Credit from 2018 or earlier, can I use it?
A: No, Cookie Credits must have been issued this year or last year, 2019 or 2020

Q: What do I do with the physical Cookie Credit paper slip once I register?
A: Please mail them to Brenda Darkow, Twilight Camp Registrar, 2198 Red Fox Circle, Chanhassen, MN 55317 by June 15th

Campers, invite a friend who isn't a Girl Scout to camp!

Girls entering grades 1-6 can bring a non-Girl Scout girl friend in the same grade to Twilight Camp.  We’ll make every effort to place them in the same Unit.  This is a great way to try out Girl Scouts!  Have the friend register as a camper and indicate the Girl Scout who invited her.  Be sure to list the other girl as a placement request when you register (there's a spot for the other girl's name on the form).

Sibling Care
Sibling Care is free for 4-day Volunteers

We want parents/guardians to able to volunteer at Twilight Camp.  Sibling care is available on the days you volunteer for dependent children ages 4-13 (child must be toilet trained and at least 4 yrs of age at the start of camp).  Your child may not attend sibling care if you are not physically present, volunteering in camp that day.  Sibling Care is free for four-day volunteers otherwise it's $20/sibling/day.  Girls entering first grade or older must register as a Girl Scout Camper, not a sibling.  

Volunteering at Twilight Camp
New!  Select Your Volunteer Assignment via SignUp Genius 

We rely on adult volunteers to help with camp and maintain our safety ratios.  We schedule camp late in the day ("twilight") to allow adults to volunteer while accommodating work and home schedules.     Sign up to volunteer now and we'll send a Sign-Up Genius in late spring with days/times/spots available so you can pick a volunteer opportunity that meets your schedule.  We ask each camper to have an adult volunteer for an afternoon at camp or similar commitment. Four-day volunteers receive free sibling care and a free t-shirt.
