The health and safety of the girls, volunteers, families and staff of Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road is always the highest priority.  Due to the uncertainty that we are currently facing, we have made the difficult decision to close our camps through the end of July.  This will include in person outdoor programming, events, troop camping, volunteer and staff-led day camps and resident camp.

We understand how heartbreaking that a summer without Girl Scout camp will be for all of us.  However, the safety and well-being of those that we serve comes before anything else in our organization and our decision to close is based on that very commitment in these uncertain times. 

At this time, we hope to resume programming in August, however we will continue to evaluate and keep everyone posted as we make decisions.  Our camp team will be providing virtual options throughout the summer, in addition to virtual programming already taking place.  Refunds will be provided to all current registrants and earners of the Golden Tickets will receive alternative options.  Please watch for emails from our teams with details.

Thank you for your continued patience and support during this difficult time in our history.  We are honored to serve our Girl Scout community and know that we will all get through this together.  Stay safe.
