Summer Camp FAQs
Thinking about having a summer of fun with new friends, but don't know if the Hornets' Nest camp programs are right for you? Let us help make the decision a little easier! Dive into a few of our top questions we get about our one-of-a-kind programming.
Do I have to be a registered Girl Scout to attend camp at the Dale Earnhardt Environmental Leadership Campus at Oak Springs?
No, you don’t have to already be a registered Girl Scout to sign up for our Camp programs! Each Camper will be registered as a member of Girl Scouts upon signing up for their desired program session.
Are you offering day camp sessions this year?
For Summer 2022, our Outdoor Program team is hard at work behind the scenes preparing for resident camp program, and we're so excited to engage more Girl Scouts at our Summer Camp lineup this year. To allow the Outdoor Program team to fully focus on developing our resident camp program, our Council has decided not to offer day camp for this season, but look forward to offering it again in the future. Daisies who would have otherwise attended day camp are encouraged to explore outdoor programming available in the spring and summer hosted by both our Council and by their Service Unit.
Can I take a tour of camp?
We'd love to help you see all we have to offer at the Dale Earnhardt Environmental Leadership Campus at Oak Springs, in Statesville, NC! Unfortunately due to staff availability as we gear up for an amazing summer at camp, we are not offering in-person tours of the property at this time. You can learn more about everything we have to offer at camp and check out photos across the property here.
What communication can I expect after I register?
Once registered, you will receive a receipt and our confirmation packet via e-mail. If these do not show up, please check your spam box. If you do not receive a copy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
More questions? We get it!
Stop by one of our virtual Summer Camp Q&As for a brief presentation on our Resident Camp program, and an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the 2022 season! Please note this event is designed for parents/guardians with questions about our upcoming camp programs. We will have Camper Q&As scheduled a few weeks before Camp starts, where campers will have the chance to ask all of their burning questions about what they will be doing, what to pack, and maybe even meet a few of the staff who will be working at Camp this summer! Sign up to receive an email with the Zoom link to the Q&As here.

Health and Safety
While planning a full schedule of fun for girls this summer, our outdoor program team is working behind the scenes to make preparations to keep campers safe while they explore the outdoors and experience a fundamental part of Girl Scouting.
In an effort to keep you informed of our plans to keep your Girl Scout, all her new friends at camp, and our dedicated camp staff safe, we look forward to sharing our updated health and safety protocols you can expect this summer. These precautions will be developed in conjunction with the NC Department of Health and Human Services Summer Camp Guidance and the CDC's guidance on overnight summer camp.
We expect to share this guidance closer to the beginning of summer 2022 and look forward to keeping you up to date as that time approaches.
