Welcome to Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson Property Reservation System

 

ROCK HILL ANNOUNCEMENT

Due to needed repairs, the Explorer tent unit will be temporarily closed until further notice.  Once the repairs are completed and the unit can be reopened, we will post that here.

 

 

 

New for 2024

As was previously mentioned here, in order to better serve our members and provide the best possible property reservation experience, the council has entered into a partnership with G1 Facility Services.   It has now been determined that G1 will need a 72 hour (3 day) advance booking period for their maintenance and staffing needs.   Should you have an urgent and immediate need for space, please contact us at 845-558-9436 to discuss.

UPDATE ON THE BETTY TAUBERT GIRL SCOUT HOUSE, SCARSDALE

Friday night overnights in the downstairs space are now available to reserve.  Please be aware that the Village has usage of the upstairs on Saturday mornings between 9am and 12noon and programs may be going on upstairs between those hours on that day.

PLATFORM TENT CAPACITY UPDATE - Rock Hill and Camp Addisone Boyce

 New York State Code has stated that for platform tents there should be 50 square feet of floor area per occupant with heads 6 feet apart.  This means that for a 14 x 14 platform there should be 3 beds per tent, and for a 14 x 16 platform, there should be 4 beds per tent.  In order to comply with this current code in Rock Hill, the Ranger tent unit will have 3 beds per tent, and all the other tent units will have 4 beds per tent.  Camp Addisone Boyce will follow the same guidelines once the platform tents are up.   Please plan accordingly.

Please note:

Should the need arise for GSHH to change your reservation due to a conflict with a council program or event, every effort will be made to notify you with ample time to reschedule. We will always try to honor your reservation, however, please be aware that  there may be times when unanticipated changes will need to be made on short notice.  Should that situation arise, we will be in touch as soon as we can to give you as much time as possible to move or reschedule your reservation.

It is our hope that this system will make it easier to reserve the property you need with less effort and paperwork.  We have many beautiful properties and would like nothing more than to have them utilized by our members.

Reservations will not be accepted via fax, email or phone; please make all reservations online. If you have questions please email property@girlscoutshh.org.

 

Archery and Ropes:

Please note when reserving the Archery Range or Ropes facility at any GSHH camp,  you are responsible for securing a GSHH approved Facilitator.  A list of rules and facilitators can be emailed to you by contacting membercare@girlscoutshh.org

Boating:

Please note that boating is only available on a case by case basis because we do not have Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson facilitators.  Below is a summary of what is required for boating in our camps - if you have a facilitator that you believe has the needed qualifications, please contact Maggie Pichura at mpichura@girlscoutshh.org  to discuss.

Boating requires a Lifeguard with current CPR for the Professional Rescuer and Waterfront Certification, plus an adult with documented experience in the specific type of boating or Small Craft Safety certification.  Consult Safety Activity Checkpoint for girl to Lifeguard and watcher ratios.

Thank you for your cooperation!
