About

If you love the water, then Camp Coles Trip is  for you! Located in Stafford, VA on the banks of Aquia Creek, Coles Trip offers aquatic programs for new and experienced campers. Girls will challenge themselves sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and paddle boarding.  In addition to watersports, girls will participate in archery, hiking, campfire programs, arts & crafts and at least one cookout during their stay at camp. Campers will stay in either platform tents or glen shelters and enjoy both traditional family style meals in the dining hall and cookout/pack out meals with their program groups.

Campers will work to earn stripes on the Spirit Stick by displaying strong Girl Scout Spirit, participate in a theme meal or two planned by the camp’s girl led Camper Council, and enjoy specially planned all-camp activities. Plus, all campers will celebrate the end of the week at a campfire with skits, songs and new lifelong friends. For girls who have completed grades 5-11.

Camp Winona 
Hughesville, MD

About


A perfect camp for both new and returning campers, Camp Winona programs allow girls to explore the wonders of the outdoors in a fun, safe, traditional camp setting. Located in Hughesville, MD, Winona offers a wide variety of programs ranging from weeklong themed specialty activities to two-night minicamps. While at camp, girls will stay in glen shelters and enjoy a variety of meal options including traditional family style dining in the camp dining hall and cookouts/pack outs with their program.

Regardless of her program choice, each camper will have the opportunity to swim daily, tie-dye and try other crafts, experiment with science and technology, explore nature and the environment, work together on teambuilding challenges, and take aim with water balloons or a bow and arrow (2nd grade and up). Campers may also see one of the magical mermairies (the camp mascot) as they hike to visit at least one of Camp Winona’s destination locations during their stay: Fossil Creek, Wish Tree, Mermairy House or Hammock Village. For girls who have completed grades K-11.

What is Sleep-Away Camp?

Our four Girl Scout Sleep-Away Camps, Camp Coles Trip, Camp May Flather, Camp Potomac Woods and Camp Winona, provide unique environments that help girls develop positive self-esteem, leadership skills, and social skills all while having the time of their lives. The camp setting allows girls to develop a strong sense of self, gain practical life skills, become resourceful problem solvers, and cultivate healthy relationships by living and working together. Camp is a great place for girls to unlock their potential and discover the wonders of the outdoors and the adventures that await.

All sleep-away camp programs include campfires, cookouts, swimming daily (except Camp Coles Trip), hiking, nature activities, arts and crafts, archery (2ndgrade and up), making new friends and more!

Camp life is the best life! Share our programs with your girl and let her find the camp that’s right for her. 

Camp Open House

Check out camp before your sleep-away adventure begins! Join us on site for a chance to see it all – the dining hall, sleeping units, activity areas, and more as you explore camp and meet the staff. Each of our Camp Open Houses provides a wonderful opportunity for you to see the facilities for yourself, meet the camp staff and ask any questions you may have before the summer begins. Plus, it’s a great chance to watch your camper become more excited about camp, especially as she makes friends with the camp staff and hears more about all of the activities and cool things she will get to do.

Open Houses run rain or shine. Please dress for the weather – tours are outdoors. Closed toe shoes preferred.

Please remember, pets and smoking are not permitted on camp property.

Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the end time.

Bus Transportation

Hop on the bus for a ride to camp that’s fun for girls and easy for parents! For just $50 one-way or round trip, parents can save time and gas, while girls enjoy singing songs, chatting and bonding with fellow campers. Parents may also drive their campers to and from sleep-away camp; however, most campers enjoy taking the bus as a way to transition into the new camp environment.

We have two bus stops: Montgomery County, MD, and Fairfax County, VA. After registering your camper, you will receive a detailed Parent Information Book that contains drop-off times and specific locations for each bus stop. Due to traffic and location, bus transportation is recommended for all campers attending Camp May Flather and Camp Coles Trip.

When you register online, please select the appropriate Add-On for your transportation preference -- one way or round trip. We must meet a minimum number of bus riders per bus. If minimums are not met, the bus will be cancelled. Financial aid available. 

The Virginia bus stop will offer transportation to Camp Winona in Charles County, MD for 4 weeks throughout the summer (June 23-28, July 7-12, July 21-26, and August 11-16).

Living Units

While camp is rustic in some aspects, it allows girls to build connections with nature and fellow campers. During their stay, campers live in groups based on grade and program in different campsites called units. Each unit accommodates 12-24 campers and consists of sleeping facilities, a unit house or shelter, latrines or flush toilets (depending on the camp), washstand or sinks, fire circle, and screened glen shelters or platform tents. Each platform tent or glen shelter contains cots with mattresses, mosquito netting and nightstands for four to six girls. Most units do not have electricity. Camp staff sleep in a separate, centrally located shelter in the unit. At night, the campers use their personal flashlights to find their way and lanterns mark the location of the latrine, washstand and staff shelter.

Unit placements are not determined until immediately prior to each session, and staff assign girls to living units by age, program and buddy requests (where possible). Staff work with parents and campers after check-in to make tent or cabin/shelter assignments to help ensure a positive experience for every camper. 

Camp Facilities

We have glen shelters at all four camps. A glen shelter is a wooden structure with four screened sides, a wooden roof and a wooden floor. In the event of inclement weather, there are canvas curtains that cover the windows to shield the inside of the cabin. Depending on their size, glen shelters will sleep four to six campers.

Platform tents are located at Camp Coles Trip and Camp May Flather. Platform tents have wooden floors with a large canvas tent secured over a wooden frame. There is an extra tarp, which acts as a rain fly, over the top of the tent. Most platform tents sleep four to six campers.  

Facilities also include a dining hall and kitchen, camp office, health center, arts and crafts building, and central shower house. Potomac Woods, Winona and May Flather have swimming pools, while Coles Trip has river access.

Meals

Food service professionals prepare all of our meals except for cookouts, and menus are planned with hungry, growing girls in mind. At camp, we provide kid-friendly food for all of our campers, consisting of foods like chicken nuggets, macaroni and cheese, spaghetti, tacos, pizza, and more.  All meals include fresh vegetables and fruits. During their stay at camp, campers have the opportunity to plan a menu and cook outdoors or have a picnic. A vegetarian option is available at all meals and our food service staff can meet most special dietary needs. We collect dietary restriction and allergy information on the Health Form provided after registration. If you have questions about dietary restrictions and food allergies, please contact the Sleep-Away Camp team, at sleepawaycamp@gscnc.org or 202.274.3308.

Camp Staff

Camp staff members are enthusiastic, talented, and caring individuals who are 18 years of age or older. We recruit both regionally and from around the world, and carefully select staff from colleges and universities, Girl Scout referrals, and international cultural exchange organizations. Campers’ health and safety are our top priorities. We select staff based on their maturity, program skills, experience, and their ability to serve as role models. A health manager is in residence at the Health Center and all staff must attend an intensive pre-camp training session, including safety, activity planning, camper care, teambuilding, and much more. Staff members who supervise high-adventure activities such as the pool, water sports, challenge course, archery, caving and other areas receive additional training and certifications. 

How to Register

Remember, camp sessions fill up very quickly. We receive a large number of phone calls and emails on opening days of registration. Please check your account information at least 1 week prior to the opening day to test your account.

Log into your eBiz account here

  • If you have previously registered your camper for camp or for a Council event, your login has remained the same.
  • If you have trouble accessing your account or cannot remember your log in information, please email registration@gscnc.org for assistance.
  • If your contact information is incorrect in eBiz, email registration@gscnc.org with your updated information.
  • If your camper’s Girl Scout membership is with a different council, please email registration@gscnc.org for further instructions.

When registration opens, log in and click Activities to find quick access to all of our summer camp offerings.

Remember: Campers must register for the program units based on the grade they will be completing in the 2018-2019 school year. 

Girls with Special Needs

Girls with Special Needs Girl Scout camp is for all girls. If your camper has medical, physical, developmental, social, or other special needs, we encourage you to work with us to find her the most appropriate camp program. If your camper has special needs, please contact Denise Viau, Camping Services Manager, at dviau@gscnc.org or 202.274.3308, before registering your camper to discuss options and to ensure that your camper finds the camp and program that best suits her needs.

Non-Girl Scouts

Sleep-Away Camp is open to all girls completing grades K - 12. Any girl who is not a member current member is welcome to attend Sleep-Away Camp, but they must register and become a of Girl Scout Nation's Capital member. The registration fee is $25. You must register 24 hours before the start of camp registration. To register as a member, please click here. If you have questions about the registration process or have problems, please email registration@gscnc.org.

Buddies

After registration, you may list a name for your camper’s buddy while submitting your Camper’s Health Paperwork in Campdoc.com. This will not guarantee a program registration for this person. They must register independently. If your camper would like to attend camp with a buddy, we encourage you to apply in a similar time frame so that you are both able to secure a space. To be buddies while at camp, girls must be attending the same program, during the same week of camp, and in the same age group. We have found that placing more than two requested campers together tends to impact group dynamics and our emphasis on making new friends. Therefore, we are not able to honor requests for more than one buddy. 

Camp Health Forms

In our continuous efforts to provide the best possible care to our campers and staff, our four Sleep-Away Camps (Coles Trip, May Flather, Potomac Woods and Winona) will use Campdoc.com to collect health information in advance of your child attending camp.

Campdoc.com is an electronic health record system for camps, which helps us consolidate and integrate camper health information into a centralized and secure location. The system gives our camp directors and health staff electronic access to camper health information so that they can provide accurate and quality patient care.

Camp Behavior

Providing a safe, healthy and positive experience for every camper is top priority. At camp, we expect campers will act in accordance to the Girl Scout law and be “considerate and caring” of others as well as “be a sister to every Girl Scout.” Please encourage your campers to help create a safe camp community by speaking to staff if they see unacceptable behavior among other campers in their unit, cabins or shower house. The staff are there to ensure every camper is having a safe and fun experience at camp.

The camp staff and Director will do everything possible to help campers adjust to camp life; however, Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital reserves the right to send any girl home from camp who consistently displays unsuitable behavior, endangers herself and/or the camp community, or exhibits unacceptable physical/verbal actions towards others. The camper’s parent/guardian is responsible for picking their camper up from camp. No refunds will be given if a camper is sent home due to unacceptable behavior or inordinate home missing.

Weekend Accommodations

There are no weekend accommodations for campers unless they are registered for a two-week program at May Flather or Coles Trip. All campers in Counselor-in-Training (CIT) I, CIT II, and the Junior Counselor program must leave camp on their weekend breaks. There are no exceptions as there is no adult supervision available. 

Visitors

To avoid interrupting camp activities and because camp sessions are short, there are no visitor days during the camp session. Due to limited parking, visiting is not permitted when you are dropping off or picking up your camper. If you wish to see the camp, the sleeping accommodations, facilities and more, please plan to attend one of our camp Open House events. 

Registration Confirmations

Emails
Immediately after registering for camp, you will receive an email confirmation. A link to the online Parent Packet will be included in your email confirmation. Please be sure that the email address associated with your camper’s account is an email address you check often. We will also use this email address to contact you regarding health form submissions through Campdoc.com, to process payment information, and to send other parent updates and/or information associated with your camper’s registration..

Paper Packets
Within 1 month of registering for camp, you will receive a confirmation packet in the mail with additional information to help you and your camper prepare for Sleep-Away Camp. This packet will include an important parent information book, information regarding Health Forms, and a packing list.

Program Deposits

To help with program planning and preparation for the summer, we collect a non-refundable deposit of $50 at the time of registration. Payment can be made with MasterCard, Visa, Discover or American Express on our registration website.

Full payment for all Sleep-Away Camp programs is due April 5, 2019. 

Cancellations/Refund

The $50 registration deposit is non-refundable. The remainder of the camp fee (excluding the deposit) will be refunded if:

  • The camper withdraws and Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital receives a written request at least five weeks prior to the start of the camper’s session.
  • The camper leaves camp due to an illness or injury and Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital receives a written request for a refund within two weeks of her return home. Refund will be prorated on a per diem basis.

If a camper leaves early due to behavior, missing home, or parent request no refund will be provided.

If a program is canceled and no alternate program is available, you will receive a full refund.

Financial Assistance

Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital strives to make camp available to all girls regardless of their family’s economic situation. To apply for financial assistance, first secure your camper’s space by registering for the program and session of choice, and paying the $50 registration deposit. After registration, please apply for financial assistance here.

Benefits of Girl Scout Camp

A key benefit of being a Girl Scout is having access to our beautiful camps. In a girl-led, girl-friendly environment, girls challenge themselves and take healthy risks, surrounded by supportive friends and camp staff. When girls spend quality time outdoors and increase their exposure to nature they thrive physically, emotionally and intellectually. 

And that’s great news—because when Girl Scouts get outside, they:

·Discover that they can better solve problems and overcome challenges.

·Develop leadership skills, build social bonds, and are happier overall.

·Become team players and care more about protecting our environment.

Girl Scouts believes in getting girls outdoors. Our summer camps allow girls to unplug from their smartphones, laptops, TVs and tablets, and get outside to enjoy nature.
