Girl Scout COVID-19 Safety Guidelines & Updates

UPDATED February 2022

Badgerland Girl Scouts and COVID

This guidance is based on resources from Girl Scouts of the USA, Centers for Disease Control, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and the State of Wisconsin.

Troop Meetings.
Girl Scouts USA recommends limiting in-person meetings to aa maximum ten people (eight girls and two unrelated adult volunteers).  However, check your local restrictions for small gatherings.  If more restrictive, follow the local restrictions.  

Virtual troop gatherings are always an option.
Access a troop Zoom Account at a pro-rated, low cost.

Effective March 1, 2022, face masks are strongly recommended but not required at Badgerland Council properties. This guidance is subject to change depending on county health recommendations.

Masking requirements are based on guidelines recommended by health departments with the Badgerland jurisdiction. Since the beginning of the pandemic, Badgerland has abided by the strictest protocols outlined among our 23 county health departments.

Badgerland Badgerland Council encourages Girl members and adult volunteers to voluntarily vaccinate. Badgerland Council requires all staff members to be fully vaccinated.

Vaccine Mandate at Badgerland Camps Summer 2022

  • COVID-19 vaccines are required for all 2022 overnight Badgerland campers.
  • A complete vaccination conforms with CDC recommendations dependent on your vaccine series: two doses for Pfizer and Moderna, and one does for Johnson & Johnson.  A booster dose is preferred but not required.
  • The vaccine mandate encompasses all Badgerland Council overnight camp experiences.

Vaccine Mandate at Badgerland Cookie Reward Overnight Trips

  • Vaccines are required for the three overnight adventures girls can choose to earn as a reward in the 2022 Cookie Program: Ice Age Trail, Sleep on a Submarine, and San Francisco.
  • Proof of vaccination is required at all restaurants in the city and may be required to access the private behind-the-scenes activities at the Zoo and Aquarium in the summer.

NO Vaccine Mandate for Troop-Sponsored Overnights

  • The vaccine mandate does not include troop-sponsored overnight experiences.
  • Badgerland troops hosting their own overnight camps should abide by any local vaccine guidelines.
  • Badgerland troops holding overnight experiences at Badgerland properties (beyond summer camp) are not held to the vaccine mandate.
