Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay offers two picturesque camp properties for all your outdoor needs. Our camp properties are well-maintained, easily accessible, and available for use by Girl Scout and non-Girl Scout groups alike. Whether you stay for the week, a day, or just a few hours - you'll leave a Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay property rental with long lasting memories!
Camp property reservations are made through our Online Property Reservation System. For questions, email MemberCare@cbgsc.org.
If you are planning a Service Unit Encampment, please email MemberCare@cbgsc.org for assistance with your reservation.
Program activities are available for rent at all of our properties, although some activities are site specific. These activities include archery, zip lining, kayaking, canoeing, sailing and more. You can schedule activity time blocks through our Online Property Reservation System.
What does it mean to schedule a program activity with a facilitator?
Advanced training is required for many of our program activity areas. By selecting the option with a facilitator, a professional facilitator with advanced training will be assigned to your group’s activity time. Your facilitator’s level of training will meet all Safety Activity Checkpoints and American Camp Association Standards, although the adults in your group will still be required to be present to meet ratio requirements and provide supervision to the participants when they are not receiving direct instruction from the facilitator. In the event that a facilitator is not available due to scheduling conflicts, your Outdoor Program Manager will contact you and arrange a refund of any fees paid.
What does it mean to schedule a program activity without/with my own facilitator?
Adults may elect to pay for their own advanced training for program activity areas at camp. In the event that you have an adult available who has received this advanced training, you may elect to pay a lower cost hourly rate and provide your own facilitator. This option gives you access to the equipment only and the fees paid go to the annual maintenance, repair, and replacements for the activity equipment. Adults with the appropriate advanced training must submit copies of their certifications to the appropriate Outdoor Program Manager for verification.
Yes, nonprofits and other organizations are invited to rent our camp properties! Interested parties should email MemberCare@cbgsc.org. Please note that any non-Girl Scout group that makes a reservation through our Online Property Reservation System is required to complete a Facility Usage Agreement within 5 business days of completing the reservation. This form will be attached to your receipt.
Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay reserves the right to refuse rental to any groups that either conflict with the mission of Girl Scouting or wish to engage in activities beyond the scope of the properties.
Reservations can be made up to nine months in advance. Service Unit Encampments are eligible to be made up to one-year advance, but must be reserved through GSCB by emailing MemberCare@cbgsc.org.
At booking, a deposit of 25% of your total facilitation and activity reservations will be due to reserve your dates.
The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to your reservation date. You will receive automated payment reminders from Doubleknot. If your balance is not paid 30 days prior to your reservation, the Property Reservation Registrar will attempt to contact you via phone and email. If the Property Reservation Registrar is not able to reach you after several attempts or you do not contact the Property Reservation Registrar to arrange payment, your reservation may be cancelled.
If I cancel, do I get my deposit back?
No. If you cancel more than 30 days prior to your camping event, you are eligible to a refund of fees paid minus the deposit. If you cancel less than 30 days prior to your camping event, you are eligible to transfer your fees paid to a new date within a nine-month window from your original reservation. If you choose not to reschedule for any of the available dates, your fees will not be eligible for a refund.
If bad weather is predicted, am I eligible for a refund?
If you elect to cancel your reservation due to inclement weather predictions, you are eligible to transfer your fees paid to a new date within a nine-month window from your original reservation. If you choose not to reschedule for any of the available dates, your fees will not be eligible for a refund. Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay reserves the right to close properties in the event of severe life-threatening weather predictions such as hurricanes, in which case the Property Reservation Registrar will work you to find a solution.
What if my facility or program area becomes unavailable?
Occasionally, GSCB facility or program areas may become unavailable at the last minute due to maintenance problems, double-booking, or severe, life-threatening weather. In the event that your facility or program area becomes unavailable for any of these reasons, the Property Reservation Registrar will work with you on a case-by-case basis to find a solution.
