GSHCDC SUMMER 2023
Camp Ilchester was sold to Howard County in Fall 2022, and the county has begun a renovation project that will extend into 2024. No camps are being held there this Summer.
But we heard it loud and clear from our campers, families, and volunteers alike -- GSHCDC is special. We love camp!
So ... we searched for a new place to call home this year. And we found it, thanks to the kindness of Temple Isaiah in Fulton.
In their beautiful outdoor space, we hosted one week of camp this Summer, following this year's theme...
This year's theme:
" REINVENTING CAMP "
Invention-themed activities joined camp favorites such as songs, dance, games, crafts, archery, STEM, leatherworking, snowcones, and much more! Camp traditions returned as well, including unit Cooking Days, all-camp activities, and finding Heidi around camp.

BADGE REQUIREMENTS AT CAMP (2023)
Below is a list, sorted by Girl Scout level, of the badge requirements that were fulfilled at GSHCDC this year. Many thanks to Doodle and Hawkeye for pulling this information together!
Please note: At the bottom of the list are two patches that were created by individual Girl Scout councils -- the "Raise Your Hand" patch by Girl Scouts Nation's Capital (GSCNC) and the "Oh What a Flag!" patch by Girl Scouts of Central Maryland (GSCM). Both are available to all Girl Scouts, but requirements may vary by level.
