Camping

Camping offers girls an opportunity to develop leadership skills while learning an appreciation for the outdoors, and a respect for our environment. The Camping Department is available to provide help and resources to any Guider planning a camp or outdoor activity. They are also responsible for circulating information about inter-provincial camping opportunities for girl and adult members as well as planning and province-wide camps that may be offered. The Camping Department may also work with the Training Department in presenting camp trainings which will improve the volunteer experience and enhance the Guiding program.

Connect! Explore! Evolve! 2021

Provincial Virtual Camp is being planned for July 12 to 15. It is open to Guides, Pathfinders, Rangers, and Guiders. It will be a mix of online presenters, challenges to do on your own (outside or at home), online activities with your fellow site campers, and obviously Guiding camping fun! Of course, camp isn’t camp without a crest and t-shirt too. The deadline for clothing orders and payment is April 30. The deadline to sign up for camp is May 31. Contact Andrea at nl-camping@girlguides.ca with any questions. To register for the camp, complete the Online Registration form.
