COVID Guidance

Troop and Group Activity & Travel Guidance: Last updated June 15, 2021

In line with both state and school authorities, GSK no longer requires individuals to wear masks. It is up to adults and caregivers to decide what is in the best interest of your Girl Scout. Per the CDC Guidelines, unvaccinated Girl Scouts, volunteers, or staff should continue to wear masks, social distance, sanitize frequently, and engage in outdoor events or virtual meetings for the safest experience. A person’s vaccination status is on their honor, and we encourage everyone to follow whatever safety measures you feel comfortable with to protect yourself, your family, and the community. Though we are transitioning to a mask and distance optional mindset, we remain a mask and distance friendly place. 

These policies will be reviewed and updated as necessary.

  • Day use of buildings at camp properties in Kentucky and Indiana is available at full capacity. It is highly recommended that windows are open and fans are running while in the building to allow for proper ventilation. Click here to learn more and make a reservation.
  • Troop and household overnights are now available in seasonal tents, three season cabins, and primitive units. For more information or to make your reservation, click here.
  • Overnights in buildings will be available beginning July 1. Online reservations will be available beginning June 21.
  • Troop and group day trips and outings may take place. Please see the Travel Guide and Safety Activity Checkpoints for more information.
  • If you are planning to travel you are encouraged to check and follow the COVID-related restrictions, if any, at your destination.

The following guidelines should be observed when meeting:

  • Ensure that families in your troop or group are aware of and comfortable with how you will conduct any in-person activities including mask/social distancing-optional interactions.
  • Choose outdoor environments, when possible.
  • All participants should practice frequent hand washing or use of hand sanitizer.
  • Troops should limit physical contact such as the friendship squeeze, high-fives, handshakes, hugs, etc.
  • No personal items should be shared. 
  • No shared water coolers or shared drinking stations. 
  • Immediately isolate and seek medical care for any individual who develops symptoms while at the meeting/activity. 
  • If an attendee tests positive or exhibits symptoms of COVID-19 after the meeting, the troop leader should notify GSK.
