Coronavirus COVID-19 Update


Following new executive orders from Governor Lamont, we will be extending the suspension of GSOFCT sponsored in-person activities and events until July 15. If desired, but not required, in-person troop meetings will be allowed to resume at that time, following the State of Connecticut, CDC, and GSOFCT guidelines outlined in Phase 3 of Connecticut’s Reopening Plan.

Before troop meetings take place, upon receiving a copy of guidelines/safety measures from the co-leader, the caregiver/parent will be asked to complete and return the COVID-19 Informed Consent Form prior to a girl’s participation at an in-person event.

We encourage you to continue to take advantage of virtual meeting solutions to stay connected with your troop. You may also stay engaged by visiting GSOFCT at Home to participate in our virtual programming.   

GSOFCT will also continue to adhere to Governor Lamont’s recommendation that nonessential businesses and nonprofits operate remotely so Connecticut residents can Stay Safe by Staying Home. Our GSOFCT staff will begin the first wave of returning to the office beginning July 6.

GSOFCT’s Camping Services will be moving forward with the opening of four of our day camps for the 2020 Summer Camp season – Aspetuck (Weston), An-Se-Ox (Oxford), Merrie-Wood (Manchester), and Laurel Day Camp (Lebanon). Opening day for day camp is July 6. Residential camp programs (Camp Laurel Residential) are to remain closed per the State of Connecticut's guidelines restricting overnight camping.

GSOFCT Camp properties will open to all membership, staff, and long-standing outside user groups (no new outside user groups at this time) effective Monday, July 15, 2020.
