Site Managers

If you cannot make it to the site that you scheduled, please contact the Site Registrar at 305-253-4841 ext. 252 as soon as possible. Our property managers work hard to maintain our beautiful properties and to prepare them for your arrival. Cancelling your plans and notifying us in advance allows us to offer the site to others and in addition it allows the property manager to reschedule their time. Since some of our properties do not have a resident on-site manager, you are responsible for opening/ closing gates for participants and for securing the site when you leave. Camp Wesumkee in the Florida Keys is our only site that has resident site managers who will check in and check out visitors to the camp. While on site, the managers will offer assistance as needed and explain the operation of the camp.

Once a reservation has been confirmed, keys to the site may be picked up at the Council Service Center at the designated time provided by the Site Registrar. Sorry, keys will not be provided any earlier than the reserved days. While using our sites, please be a stellar Girl Scout and use resources wisely. Clean up is essential and leaving the site better than you found it, is the Girl Scout way. Please only drive on designated roads or driveways and be mindful of neighbors. Trash should be taken with you and/or left secured in the appropriate trash canisters. Kitchens are provided for the convenience of the user; therefore, ALL food, staples, etc. should not be left behind.

We take pride in offering a wide array of properties for use, each one offering a unique setting and differing amenities.
