Guidelines for Fall 2021 Property Usage

Overnights:

Please be advised that due to Covid 19 restrictions, Rock Hill Camp and Camp Addisone Boyce facility availability has been decreased resulting in smaller capacities to comply with social distancing guidelines.   In addition, all Covid guidelines as outlined on our website will be in force as well, and must be complied with.  Below is an outline of the available camp facilities for Fall 2021 usage.

Rock Hill:

Woodlander and Frontier are not available this year. 

Forester, Ranger and Explorer currently have 6 tents available and each tent has 3 beds.  That makes the total capacity for each unit 18.

The cabin capacity has been reduced to half, which is 8 girls and 2 adults.

New this year - a new area has been opened up for reservation - the Explorer BYOP Deck - bring your own popup!  This area can hold approximately 4 two man tents.

 

Camp Addisone Boyce

No platform tents are available this year.  Cabin capacity has been reduced by half to 9 total.  Pitch tent areas are available as directed by Julio.

 

House overnights -

Fanny Fay- 10 total

Larchmont - 12 total

New Rochelle upstairs only - 15 total

Port Chester upstairs only  - 12 total

Tuck/East upstairs only  - 12 total

Rumsey Road - 10 total

Crestwood - 10 total

Day Use:

Troop meetings are on a first come, first served basis.

New this year, all troop meeting reservations - camp and the houses -  are 2 hours, and will carry a $5 charge for each 2 hour increment to cover the cost of disinfection and maintenance.  The cabins in Rock Hill now have a 2 hour troop meeting reservation under the facility tab. 

 

Pleasantville office location:

Please note that the Pleasantville Office is no longer available for use as a troop meeting location.

*****For Property Access ******

**Many of our properties utilize a lockbox for access.  Beginning in May 2020, access information will be emailed to the address on your profile when you reserve property. Please ensure you locate that email.  If you do not receive it, please contact Customer Care.  Access to our properties that utilize a lockbox will not be possible without this information!

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 customercare@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 Octavia Ford at oford@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.
