GSNEO's camps provide diverse opportunities and outdoor experiences for girls to develop an appreciation and respect for the environment. Girl Scouts of North East Ohio offers four camping locations. Discover the uniqueness of GSNEO's camps and all they have to offer!
Troop/Group Camping is a year round camping experience of 24 or more consecutive hours, planned and carried out by a group of girls and their advisors/leaders at a council property or council-approved site. Troops and Service Units scheduling less than 3 months out are required to use the online registration system to reserve dates. Service Units will continue to mail in Service Unit Camping and Day Outing Request forms to reserve dates outside of the troop 3 month window. No walk-in or telephone reservations are accepted. The GSNEO Trip Application must be used for troop camping off GSNEO Property.

Resident Camping is an overnight camping experience in which campers live at either Camp Ledgewood or Camp Timberlane. Girls sign up as individual campers or go with a buddy. The girls and their counselors/leaders plan activities, taking advantage of the resources available at the campsite. All summer resident staff are specially trained. Resident Camp opportunities are listed in the Summer Camp Guide. For more information about Resident Camp click here.
Each summer GSNEO offerers one-day summer camp program sessions at Camp Ledgewood. The one-day programs are for Daisies entering first grade through Cadettes. For more information about One Day Girl Summer Camp Programs click here.
Day and Twilight Camping is generally a summer program run for three to five days for no more than seven hours per day under the approval and direction of GSNEO. This creative outdoor experience is generally theme based creating a common thread for the activities. Girls may sign up as individual campers or go with buddies and are put in units of peer group living. The council assists with training the staff and approving the facilities and site. A day/twilight camp may be at a council-owned or approved site.
Daytime camp experience for Daisies & Brownies. Young Girl Scouts can join the summer camp fun for a week or more. Five weeks of day camp are scheduled this summer at Camp Ledgewood. Day camp has a variety of themed camp weeks to select from, and no matter with week girls attend, they still get to experience traditional camp activities.
Core Camping is a troop camping experience in which girls live at an established site in peer groups. Council provides the site, facilities and core staff to deliver pre-planned programs. Each troop is responsible for their own plans, adults and girls providing the trained adults required for an outdoor overnight activity. Troops may or may not choose to take advantage of the activities offered by the core staff. Core Camping opportunities are available through out the year.
