Youth Information




All campers need to complete a GSHCDC application via CampDoc.


Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis via the CampDoc web site. No phone or mail-in registrations will be accepted. 

For campers and Program Aides in Training (PATs), once initial spots are filled, those who register will be placed on a wait list in the order in which their registrations are received. If a spot opens up, it will be offered to the next person on the list.




Camper: Girl Scouts in grades 1-6 as of September 2024


Program Aide in Training (PAT): Girl Scouts in 7th grade (or higher) as of September 2024. Girls must earn at least one Leader in Action (LiA) award with their troop or on their own—before attending camp as a PAT, if possible. (See: PAT Information)


Program Aide (PA): Girl Scouts in grades 8-12 as of September 2024. To be a PA, an applicant MUST have completed PA Training either at GSHCDC or at another GSCM camp. (See: PA Information)




  • To attend GSHCDC, campers, PATs, and PAs must be registered Girl Scoutswith Girl Scouts of Central Maryland or another Girl Scout council. If a girl is not currently a Girl Scout, but wants to join, she can register for GSHCDC but must also register as a Girl Scout (as an individual, or as part of a troop) by no later than Outdoor Training.

  • The Maryland Health Department requires that all Health History Forms have the date of the camp attendee's last tetanus shot. Applications will NOT be accepted without tetanus shot information.

  • If GSHCDC get more adult volunteers after camper registration opens, we may be able to accept more campers. In that case, some campers on the wait list will get a spot. Confirmation emails will be sent for going on (and coming off) the wait list. 


  • GSHCDC adult volunteers get guaranteed placement of their children at camp. But you still need to register your camper(s). If your child is initially wait listed, don't worry! We will update the registration on our end to move your camper(s) off the wait list and into camp.
