What is Camp Connection?

Camp Connection is GSNNJ's Virtual Summer Camp Experience!

Girls will interact with camp counselors virtually, enjoy team-building activities, games, arts & crafts, story time, and yoga. Girls will earn badges and participate in activities based on the theme of the week, including Art in the Outdoors, Healthy Living, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.)

Sessions will be offered twice daily in 2-hour blocks (10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00-3:00 p.m.) at the cost of $80 per week. Please note that morning sessions will be repeated in the afternoons, and sessions with the same theme are also repeated information (e.g., Sessions 1 & 4 are the same). 

Each weekly session, designed for Girl Scout Daisies through Cadettes, encourages girls to make friends and participate in 100% live interactive activities with camp staff. Earn a Girl Scout badge and enjoy all of the activities you will receive in your Happy Camper Kit (includes the Girl Scout badge and program supplies you'll need to participate in the weekly session from your own home).

Refer to our Camp Connection Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for more information or email our Customer Care staff at customercare@gsnnj.org.
