Overnight camping for one or two nights (as appropriate according to age level) within the Council area (Miami Dade or Monroe County)

Troops must follow all local COVID guidelines/policies.  Masks are required at all times and physical distancing must be enforced.  Troops are responsible for ensuring that all COVID safety regulations are followed and that all participants have appropriate PPE (masks, hand sanitizer, etc.)  Sleeping areas may not be shared with anyone outside of a girl's family group. 

Troop must submit a signed  COVID Waiver  to GSTF with Trip and Travel form.

Troop/Community must collect individual COVID Waivers from all participants (girls and adults) - kept by Troop leader(s).

Domestic and international travel are not permitted at this time.  Troops are welcome to submit a Trip and Travel form to CustomerCare@girlscoutsfl.org, with future travel dates so they can be reviewed at such a time that our council is permitted to process and approve them. 

Transportation (car-pooling): Based on the risks surrounding COVID-19, and due to the proximity within a confined space of carpooling and/or public transportation, GSTF strongly discourages any shared transportation. Individual families should provide required transportation for the girls in their own household.
