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 2020 UPDATE
Posted: May 1, 2020
Safety is our highest priority. So it is with the best interest of our campers and staff, and with a heavy heart, that we announce the canceling of Girl Scout Howard County Day Camp for Summer 2020.
At the time of this writing, Girl Scout properties in Central Maryland are closed. Under Governor Hogan’s Recovery Plan, camps will most likely fall at the end of Stage Three. If the recovery plan reaches this stage by early Fall, GSHCDC will look into hosting a few small events to recognize camp milestones that would have occurred this year (such as Bridge to Adult and 6th Grade Sleepover). We will provide details when they are available for any potential activities.
Girls who would have taken Program Aide (PA) Training at camp this Summer (rising 7th grader) are advised to take their training through GSCM if they want to be a PA the Summer of 2021. They may also wait and take their training with us at Ilchester as a rising 8th grader during the Summer of 2021 camp. Regardless of age, all girls must go through a council-approved training before serving as a Program Aide.
Refunds! Our team will be working over the next month to process cancellations and full refunds for all participants. If you would like your refund to be automatically processed onto the card you paid with, we ask that you check to be sure the card information is saved into your CampDoc account. This will need to be done by May 15 to ensure that your refund is processed in a timely manner.
For anyone whose card information is not saved in CampDoc, we will be processing refunds via check. Those will begin processing on June 1 and should arrive shortly thereafter. If you do not receive your refund by July 1, please contact us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
