Summer Camp

Take a deep breath. Catch the scent of pine cones mixed with roasting marshmallows, and you are ready for your summer camp adventure.

There are leaves to rustle through, water to plunge into and trails to explore. There are campfire stories that make you laugh and shiver, like the night air causing you to snuggle deeper into the warmth of your sleeping bag . . . drifting off to dream of the fun you’ll have tomorrow. 

We are excited welcome your camper to Camp Evelyn or Camp Manitou!

At summer camp you can come for the day, for three, five or even 12 nights. You can bring a buddy or come on your own, but in no time you will know all the girls in your camping unit just like your friends back home. That is just the “nature” of summer camp – friends made summer after summer often become your friends for life. You might even come to camp with your whole troop or with your favorite adult!

  • Camp Evelyn is nestled on 240 acres of beautifully wooded property near Plymouth, Wisconsin. You'll jumping off the dock into the clear waters of Crystal Lake, getting your feet wet while looking for wildlife in Mullet River, practicing archery, having fun in the pool, hiking around the trails, and so much more.
  • Camp Manitou is nestled on 140 near Two Rivers, Wisconsin and is on the banks of Serenity Lake in Manitowoc County. You'll love swimming, fishing, stand up paddle boarding and boating in Serenity Lake, trying your hand at disc golfing, going geocaching, hiking the trails, and so much more.

Summer camp is open to all girls entering 1st-12th grade.

Not a Girl Scout? Simply add $30 to the camp fee to become a member, and join in the fun! This is completed at the same time you register for a camp session.

Bring your friends and show them how to have a blast this summer!

Safety & COVID-19

After successfully and safely holding all sessions in summer 2021, we are planning and hoping for another successful and safe camp season! If we are unable to hold camp due to the COVID-19 pandemic, refunds will be provided.

Girl Scouts of Manitou Council will meet or exceed standards of the American Camp Association (ACA), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Sheboygan County Health Department for summer camp operation during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

To see safety precautions and guidelines we followed when operating camp in 2020 & 2021, please check below.

Camper Safety Amid COVID-19

There were safety guidelines Girl Scouts of Manitou Council followed in summer 2020. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and follow all recommendations in 2021 as well. As it gets closer to the start of summer camp, updates on precautions will be updated here.

Girl Scouts of Manitou Council Summer Camp Safety Guidelines
Updated: 8-1-2020

Girl Scouts of Manitou Council is following the recommendations provided by the American Camp Association (ACA), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Sheboygan County Health Department for summer camp operation during the time of COVID-19.

At Camp Evelyn, our camp counselors will continue to make life at camp a fun time of skill building for girls. Implementing these precautions and safety measures are no exception. Learning about ways we can help ourselves stay healthy and prevent the spread of germs and illness is a life skill that will be important as kids go back to school and participate in other activities. Counselors have developed processes and activities to be sure these safety precautions are not scary for campers, but rather are ways to help keep themselves and others healthy - and in many cases can even be fun.

The following are prevention steps that will take place at camp this summer:

  • A pre-camp COVID questionnaire will be sent out and must be completed by families before campers can attend camp.
  • Camp counselors and staff have had limited contact with people outside of camp since early June.  Camp counselors' health is being monitored daily by the camp nurse for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19. 
  • All campers and family members should stay home if they are feeling sick.
  • Campers will be placed into small groups with proper camp counselor supervision for activities, sleeping units, and mealtimes.
  • Activities, including meals, will take place outdoors as much as possible.
  • Camp counselors will wear face masks and other personal protective equipment for indoors and when a small number of activities require close contact. (8-1-2020)
  • Campers  should bring face masks from home to wear when they are inside or participating in a small number of outside activities that require close contact. It will be helpful if campers bring a different disposable or washable face mask for every day of their camp session. (8-1-2020)
  • Campers and camp counselors will wash their hands before and after all mealtimes and snacks, and before and after all activities in which shared equipment is used. 
  • Campers will be guided and reminded in proper self care, like coughing and sneezing into a tissue or elbow and maintaining broader social distance.
  • Kitchen staff will continue to follow all safe food handling procedures and will wear gloves when preparing and/or serving food. Most food items will be single serve.
  • Frequently touched objects and surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected regularly (door knobs, handles, faucets, etc.)
  • A response plan for any potential outbreak has been crafted and will be implemented in partnership with the Sheboygan County Public Health Department based on the specific circumstances.  Parents will be notified should the response plan be implemented.

Important Drop Off and Pick Up Information:

  • Every camper will have their temperature taken with a no-touch thermometer by a camp counselor at check-in. Children with a temperature of 100.4 or higher must go home until they have been fever free for a full 24 hours without the use of fever reducers.
  • A camp counselor will meet you at your vehicle for the temperature check. Please be patient and wait for their assistance and direction.
  • If our camp nurse has questions for you, you will be directed to stop at the camp office. Only one family will be in the office at a time. Please be patient and follow social distancing protocols by waiting on the designated spots.
  • If you would like to walk your camper to their unit, one parent or guardian can leave the vehicle to do that but should bring a face mask for entering the their camper's tent or cabin.
  • During pick up, campers will be near the welcome center and split into groups based on their units.
  • The canteen will not be open at pick up or drop off; however we will ensure that your daughter has plenty of opportunities to shop during her stay at camp.

Parents will be required to sign a statement that while they understand Girl Scouts of Manitou Council is taking many extra precautions to assure that viruses and bacterial infection is not spread through the camp program or on the physical camp site, there is a risk that their daughter or those with whom she comes in contact may contract a virus, or other sickness, including COVID-19, while at Camp Evelyn and/or participating in the camp program or after the camp program, and that they will not hold Girl Scouts of Manitou Council, Camp Evelyn or any of its agents responsible for any illness or sickness contracted by their daughter or those with whom she comes in contact.
