Welcome to

Girl Scout Howard County Day Camp

at Camp Ilchester


GSHCDC is located in Ellicott City, across from Ilchester Elementary and in the same location as the GSCM Clementine's Corner store. We are a completely volunteer-run day camp with two week-long sessions every summer.


Come enjoy traditional camp activities with our own Ilchester Girl Scout spin to it! With exploration, adventure, and laughter galore, your daughter is sure to have a blast with us! 




GSHCDC regrets that our hopes for a fun-filled in-person camp are again postponed due to safety concerns. With the uncertainty of the times, we cannot move forward with camp plans without the certainty of providing a healthy environment for our campers and staff.


Plans are in the works for a Bridge-to-Adult ceremony this Summer for interested families.


Virtual Camp 2021: June 28-July 2, 2021


However, we ARE moving forward with plans for Virtual Camp 2021!




Campers ... PAs ... Leaders ... Troops ...


We’d like to add YOUR face(s) to GSHCDC Virtual Camp 2021!


Do you:

  • like to speak or sing for an audience?  

  • play an instrument?

  • love to dance?


We are soliciting video entries for several daily spots in our VIRTUAL CAMP, to be presented daily, June 28-July 2.  


To participate, please sign up using SignUpGenius. (You do not need a SignUpGenius account.)


Your participation will be confirmed by April 10, with video submissions due by April 24.


We will need digital video segments for the Pledge of Allegiance, the Girl Scout Promise, Taps, Camp Songs, Dance Breaks, etc. The more scouts you could include (while appropriately distancing), the better!


We will also be looking for original artwork. Details on that to come.


We can’t wait to “see” you at Virtual Camp 2021!


-- Your GSHCDC leadership team
