Girl Scouts of Manitou Council Sites:
If your troop is suddenly in need of a troop meeting site due to the interpretations of COVID-19 restrictions on public buildings and are in the area around Camp Manitou, Camp Evelyn or the Girl Scout Center, Girl Scouts of Manitou Council is offering our troops the opportunity to use council buildings for troop meetings free of charge. Camp buildings are not open to the public and attendance at your troop meeting is by invitation only (updated 8-20-2020 & 10-7-2020).
Camp buildings will be available for troop meeting use Sunday 4:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m., and all through the week daily 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., to Friday at 3:00 p.m.
The Girl Scout Center will be available for troop meeting use from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. daily. During the week day, when the Girl Scout Center is open to the public, the capacity for meeting at the Girl Scout Center is limited to 25 people. During the evening and weekend, attendance in the building is by invitation only. No one should enter except those invited by your troop or by council staff or volunteers (updated 10-7-2020).
It is our hope to schedule troops for 1.5 hours per meetingn, leaving a half hour between meetings to allow for social distancing and sanitizing. All safety and COVID-19-related guidelines must be followed in council buildings. We will be asking troop leaders to do basic sanitizing of buildings after each meeting to prepare for the next troop.
