Camp Scherman Weekend Camp

Weekend Camp

Camps are dependent upon current COVID conditions and therefore subject to change, including but not limited to a shift to virtual instead of in-person, rescheduling, or cancellation. Current camp requirements include:
1. Proof of vaccination and/or negative PCR test within 72 hours of arrival
2. Wearing masks indoors, when getting food and other items from the kitchen

Get away with your Girl Scout for a weekend of adventure with family (household members only) or stay-at-home for a weekend of virtual fun at Camp Scherman. The family will have fun developing new skills that last a lifetime. Weekend campers must be accompanied by a parent for the entire weekend to meet proper adult:girl ratios.*

At Camp Scherman, all campers get to try their hand at favorite camp activities, including archery, canoeing, hiking, swimming, and low ropes, ld by trained camp staff.

Weekend participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from camp.
