Registered Participants

Registration for prescheduled activities

The moment you have been waiting for is here! Registration for prescheduled activities at the Celebration of the Century event opens on Nov. 1! We are so excited for each girl who registered for the celebration during the general registration to select one time slot for one prescheduled activity at the event. Because space is limited, participants cannot select multiple activities or multiple time slots for one activity. This will help us to ensure that more girls can participate in these popular activities.

Registration for prescheduled activities is on a first-come, first-served basis, so be sure to register as soon as you can. Registration closes on Nov. 17. 

There is no additional cost to select a prescheduled activity. Adults are not eligible for prescheduled registration. 

There are no waitlists for the prescheduled activities. Standby queues will be available for all prescheduled activities, but registrants in the standby queue are not guaranteed the opportunity to participate. Should you wish to participate in more than one of these special offerings, you can schedule one and attempt to do another by entering the standby queue. 

Please note:  
Registrants arriving more than 10 minutes after the scheduled start time of their prescheduled archery, zip lining, vaulting, or Love, Hug, and Groom session must enter the standby queue and are not guaranteed the opportunity to participate. Late arrivals CANNOT be accommodated for the rifle program or any of the horseback riding activities; participants arriving after the start time for these activities must enter the standby queue and are not guaranteed the opportunity to participate.

Additionally, please note the Girl Scout level for each activity, the required waivers for some activities, and the required clothing and equipment needed.

Campsite Reservations

 

Want to book a camping site to extend the weekend festivities? Camp reservations for troops are only $15 per person for the whole weekend and will ensure you the shortest commute to the party activities. At this time, overnight camping is only available for troops.  Registration will open for weekend camping on Oct. 7! You MUST purchase a Celebration of the Century ticket prior to securing a campsite reservation. 

Camp reservations will differ for Celebration of the Century from a typical troop camp weekend. Troops will register for weekend accommodations on myGS Events rather than using the F-127 camp unit request form.

Troops should plan to arrive at the Treelake Welcome Center (Camp Arnold, Misty Meadows Ranch, and sites formerly known as part of Silver Springs) or at Camp Robinwood on Friday evening between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. Troops can depart on Sunday morning after their designated check-out time. All check-outs will be complete by noon on Sunday.  

Saturday morning arrivals and evening departures cannot be accommodated for this event. Please note that troops assigned overnight camping at Camp Robinwood will need to provide their own transportation to and from Treelake where all of the Centennial events are taking place on Saturday.   

Troops will not be able to request specific accommodations or accommodation types for this event. Troops will be placed to maximize the number of girls that can spend the weekend. Accommodations will be at Camp Arnold, including the area formerly known as Silver Springs, Misty Meadows Ranch, or Camp Robinwood.  Accommodations may be in platform tents, cabins, elevated treehouses, or dorms. Troops will be notified two weeks before the event of their camp location and type of unit assigned.

To register for camping, troops must have a Camping and Overnight Basics (COB) trained adult or the legacy camp training certification plus an adult with a current First Aid/CPR certification. You can find the Camping and Overnight Basics on gsLearn. All adults must be registered and background checked to attend. Parents/guardians staying overnight with individual girls cannot be accommodated at this time.   

If there is a specific need or accommodation, please note it on the registration and send a follow up email to customerservice@sjgs.org with additional details so we can best place the troop. Accommodations could include the need for an electrical outlet due to a CPAP machine, additional adult needed due to medical condition, accessible unit due to mobility issues, etc.

Helpful Tips:

  • Kitchen units will be shared among multiple troops. Easy to cook or no cook meals are recommended. (Lunch and two snacks are provided as part of the event).
  • Departure times will be assigned based on the unit. The expected range for most units is between 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Sunday. A 30-minute expected check-out timeframe will be provided in the accommodation email sent two weeks before the event.
  • Troops will need to bring their food, any special equipment, toilet paper, paper towels, soap, and cleaning supplies. A suggested packing list will be provided.
  • Pack your cooler with ice prior to arriving at camp.
  • To access gsLearn, go to www.gssjc.org. Log into your myGS account from the green bar near the top of the screen. Choose My Account, the yellow button at the top of the screen. Next, select gsLearn from the left hand rail. Choose 591 Camping and Overnight Basics. This on-demand course will take about two hours to complete. You can start and stop the course as needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you provide more details on the activities that make this event unique?  

This indoor/outdoor event spread out over Misty Meadows Ranch, Camp Agnes Arnold, and Adventure Park will be bigger than anything you have ever attended in our council. We'll have special offerings like fireworks, carnival entertainers - jugglers, magicians, and balloon artists - and petting zoos. The festivities also will  inlcude a main stage with music and video entertainment.

You will have an opportunity to share experiences with our special interest groups and some of our VIPS, too. How about hula hooping with CEO Mary “Hoops” Vitek? Bet you didn’t know she was a competitive and award-winning hula hooper. While some of the activities may be familiar, there have never been so many offered at the same time and place. Since it is our centennial, there will be more than 100 activities to participate in over the course of the day.

What time does the event end?  

The day ends with the fireworks show, which will take place at dark, approximately 5:30 p.m. or 6 p.m.

Can someone who is not attending the event come help us set up?
No, for security reason we are not allowed to have anyone who is not a participant of the event past the check in area. 

How will parking work?
Please pack light and bring the fewest number of vehicles as possible! Parking will be tight for this event. When you arrive at camp, proceed to the Welcome Center.  You will be directed from there.  At the parking lot please follow the directions of the parking crew and park close but sensibly.  Remember to watch for girls in the parking lot!

How will check-in work?
Bring the Troop/Group Roster, and Farm Animal Waiver forms.  YOU WILL BE CHECKED IN BY TROOP NUMBER. DO NOT unpack everything until you are checked in.  

How will check-out work?  
If you are attending for the day only, you’ll be dismissed after the fireworks show.  If you are camping, you will check out your unit with the Reserve Rangers on Sunday.  After that, you are free to leave.

How will kapers work?  
We will assign event kapers to each troop/group that is camping. These will be listed in your Troop packet that you pick up at check-in.  All groups are responsible for the unit kapers in their unit (trash, clean up, etc.) as well as their “all-camp-kaper.” 

Can we bring SWAPS?
Yes, but swaps are at the discretion of the individuals and groups attending. We will also have a swap station where you can make your own swaps to trade. There is not a designated area at camp to trade your swaps – just do it anytime you meet a new Girl Scout! (In front of the Centennial Stage is a great location!)

Does the event provide toilet paper?
The event will provide toilet paper and paper towels for the day on Saturday. Troops that are camping must bring their own.  Be sure to also bring hand soap and cleaning supplies for your unit.

Can I bring snacks for my troop?
Sure!  Especially if you are travelling a long way to get to camp, we know your girls (and adults) might get hungry!  Feel free to bring snacks, coolers/ice chests, etc.  If you have a lot to carry, think about a backpack or tote bag to put it all in.  You may also bring a wagon or cart; just be aware that wagons and carts will not be allowed on the people movers.

Can we bring chairs / picnic blankets / etc?
Sure!  You might enjoy having something to sit on by the stage.  (Sit-Upons, anyone?) In fact, we encourage everyone to have a towel or blanket to sit on. To ensure everyone can see the stage, please do not set up chairs in the Centennial Field near the stage.  (Chairs on the edge are fine.)
