Thank you for your interest in joining us at the Dale Earnhardt Environmental Leadership Campus at Oak Springs for Summer 2022! Unfortunately, we are no longer accepting Camper registrations. We hope to see you for Summer Camp 2023, though! Please check back in December 2023 for more info on our next summer of fun!

Summer Camp FAQs

Please see below for some of our most frequently asked questions about our change in plans for Summer 2022. Additional questions? Reach out to to get more info.

Why is registration for Summer Camp 2022 closed?
Unfortunately, we have made the difficult, but necessary, decision to suspend our planned Summer 2022 Resident Camp programs at the Dale Earnhardt Environmental Leadership Campus at Oak Springs (DEELCOS) in light of the impact of staffing shortages on our camp team. This is a heartbreaking decision given the importance of outdoor experiences as part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, but delivering a quality, robust, impactful, and safe experience to our Camp Family is our top priority.

If I was already registered for Summer Camp 2022, what happens to my payment toward my Camp balance?
Payments will be refunded in 7-10 business days following the notice of our Camp updates (4/5/2022). Campers who used Buzz Bucks to pay for all or a portion of their camp registration will be re-issued 2022 Buzz Bucks.

What if I had planned to use recently earned Buzz Bucks or selected Summer Camp as my Cookie Reward and hadn't yet registered?
Buzz Bucks earned during the 2022 Cookie Season can be used to pay for Camp Registration for Summer 2023 when this launches in the fall. Reminder: Your Buzz Bucks do not expire until December 2022, so there is still plenty of time to use your hard-earned reward for awesome and memorable Girl Scout programming!
Girls who selected Summer Camp as a Cookie Reward during the 2022 Cookie Season will be contacted separately to select a different reward.

What about other outdoor programs at the Dale Earnhardt Environmental Leadership Campus at Oak Springs?
We have already started planning family fun days at camp, and can’t wait to see you there! Once these dates are set, we look forward to inviting the entire Hornets’ Nest Membership to still enjoy all the summer fun at camp. Our registered campers for Summer 2022 will receive exclusive first access to these events. We look forward to sharing more information about these family fun days when it is available, as we plan to wait until the planned upgrades and repairs are solidly completed before extending the invitation.

What about Summer 2023?
We’re so excited to see our Camp Family in 2023, and know we have lots of adventure to catch up on! We hope those who planned to join us in 2022 will join us at DEELCOS for Summer 2023, and are extending a $50 credit toward their registration for all the fun at our Camp Family reunion! Once Summer 2023 registration is open, this year’s Campers will receive an additional email with information to secure their session and use their credit.
