Camp at Home with Zoom into Summer Camp (ZISC)

Not quite ready for in-person camp? For Girl Scouts who are interested in participating in camp from the comfort of their own home or backyard, we introduce you Zoom into Summer Camp (ZISC)! See our featured programs below as well as all the information you need to participate.

Program Structure

Hosted by our program and community engagement teams, all program materials will be provided when you sign-up for a week of ZISC. These programs were designed with limited screen-time, to inspire Girl Scouts to learn a new skill, explore a topic of interest further and more!

When you sign up for these multi-day programs, you will participate in a program-welcome webinar on the first morning, daily check-in webinars, a Thursday evening family night activity, and a printable activity guide to follow at home. Featured ZISC programs will have additional webinars taking place that week as well. Girl Scouts who participate will also receive a fun patch that will be mailed at the end of summer!

Featured Program!

Hackathon | May 15-16

Before we get into ZISC, we have one special program for Girl Scouts of all ages! Join us for our first ever hackathon on May 15! Girls will receive a challenge and a STEAM kit, and spend the day creating and designing their solution. Challenges will be age appropriate, so Daisies will work on Recyclable Art, Brownies and Juniors will find creative ways to assist animals, and Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors will create solutions in the areas of health, education, and gender equality. Register by April 30 to receive the STEAM kit in time.
