Top 10 Girl Scout Camp Essentials

We get it.

You’re busy.

Schools out for the summer and you’re trying to juggle work, family vacation, daycare and of course your Girl Scout’s summer camp experience.

Take a breather and relax! We are here to help take some of the load off. What better way than to help you know exactly what to bring to Girl Scout camp. Here you will find the Top 10 Girl Scout Camp Essentials to ensure she is prepared! Better yet, almost all of the items on this list can be found at your Girl Scout Retail Store.

Let’s get started!

1)      Dunk Kit

If you are new to Girl Scouts, you’re probably wonder what the heck is a Dunk Kit?? A Dunk Kit contains a plastic plate, bowl and cup, along with plastic silverware packed inside a mesh bag. This is a camp must!

2)     Sunscreen

Whether it is sunny or cloudy, sunscreen is very important! Remember that time you got burnt to a crisp and could barely move? Let’s not have that happen again.

3)     Sit Upon

These comfy mats will protect your Girl Scout from scratchy grass or hard rocks and are especially useful for sitting around the camp fire!

4)     Metal or Plastic Water Bottle

Stay hydrated with these handy bottles!

5)     Bug Spray

There is nothing worse than an annoying, itchy bug bite. Pack your bug spray and you won’t have to worry about that!

6)     Journal

What better way to document your camping experience than a journal? It also comes in handy to share contact information with all the new friends you will make at camp!

7)     Headband

Keep your hair out of your face with a headband. We especially think this Girl Scout tie-dyed camp headband is great!

8)     Camp T-Shirt

While at camp, avoid wearing sleeveless shirts. An alternative is this fun t-shirt that will match perfectly with your Girl Scout camp headband.

 9)     Poncho

Let’s face it. We live in the Midwest and sometimes the weather just doesn’t cooperate. Be prepared for anything with a poncho. This Girl Scout poncho comes packed in a small case for easy storage.

10)    Sling Bag

What better way to store all of your camp gear than in a styling Girl Scout sling bag? This lightweight bag will fit all your essentials in one place.

There you have it! The Top 10 Girl Scout Camp Essentials! Although there are other camp items to bring along, we think this list is a great start to help you begin the packing process. Be sure to check with your Program Specialist for complete packing lists.

Happy camping!
