Girl Scout troops can go camping on their own at any one of our Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee properties. The options are endless to customize your camping trip to fit your needs and interests.
- Day Use
A day-use reservation is for those you who want to enjoy a picnic at one of our properties or come out for the day and have your troop participate in one of our great activities. You can reserve a unit for the day, or just reserve space to enjoy the property!
Required trainings for reservations include Camp Ready, Camp Prep, Camp Information & Procedures, and Camping Skills 1 (for cabins), Camping Skills 2 (for screened cabins, platform tents, and outdoor cooking), and First Aid and CPR.
- Troop Camping (currently unavailable)
Troops travel to Camp Holloway, Camp Piedmont, and Camp Sycamore Hills to experience cooking, outdoor adventure, camp activities, horses, Girl Innovator programs, and the beautiful nature on the properties we own. Troop camping is a wonderful experience to introduce your Girl Scouts to the many offerings available to her!
Generally, the third weekend of each month is reserved for troop camping and can be requested 90 days out. Troops may also request other open dates on CouncilAlignMENT. You may reserve up to two units at time for your reservation. Reservations are limited to one active and open reservation at a time. For example, if your troop reserves a unit in October, you may not reserve another unit until you have completed the final attendance or cancelled the October reservation.
- Service Unit Camporees and Service Unit Events (currently unavailable)
The first weekend of every month is reserved for service unit camporees. A camporee is a weekend event where new and seasoned troops can enjoy troop camping with the other troops in their service unit. Enjoy troop time and activities with everyone in the service unit. Service unit events are an opportunity for the service unit to get together for an event like Cookie Rally and are available on the fourth and fifth weekends of the month. These weekends are available on a first-come-first-served basis. You may reserve other weekends for camporees or service unit events as available.
You may reserve units 180 days before your desired camporee date; however, you may only hold one reservation at a time. For example, if your service unit reserves a camporee in May, your service unit may not reserve another property or date until you have completed the final attendance or cancelled the May reservation.
When cooking for service unit camporees or events, you need to reserve the commercial kitchen. The kitchens in each unit are designed to cook for the maximum capacity for each specific cabin. The service unit or event will be assessed the full fee of the industrial kitchen if you cook for more than the capacity of the unit.
To be considered a Service Unit Camporee or Event you must meet the girl minimum below:
- Camp Holloway – 45 participants
- Camp Piedmont – 40 participants
- Camp Sycamore Hills – 100 participants
- Outside Group Rentals (currently unavailable)
