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 email@example.com 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.
- 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.
