Currently registered troops are eligible to apply for camping at all of our camps. Camps are open year-round and are available any night of the week for reservations.
Council service units are eligible to apply for encampments or camporees at both of our local camps: Camp Tongawood and Camp Prairie Schooner. Service unit camping will be available for designated weekends each Spring and Fall.
Full details regarding troop and service unit camping are on our main site.
Service Unit Day Camps take place May through August and are typically three to five days long. These camps are coordinated by the service unit with teen girls and adult volunteers working together to plan and carry out innovative outdoor activities.

express yourself camp
Experiencing a loss often brings up powerful and complicated emotions. To help children ages 5-14 deal with the unique feelings following a loss or life change, the Girl Scouts of NE Kansas & NW Missouri and Saint Luke’s Home Care and Hospice are offering a special two-day camp June 4 & 5 at Camp Tongawood.
The camp is designed for kids who’ve experienced a loss or change, such as a death of a loved one, a divorce in the family, moving, the death of a pet, losing a home, a serious illness in the family or changing schools.
Express Yourself Camp offers:
• All-day activities to promote healthy coping skills.
• A safe environment for youth to express emotions associated with loss.
• Professionally trained staff including grief counselors and volunteers.
• Healthy breakfast, lunch and snacks.
Small group activities include music therapy, a multi-media project, physical activities, arts and crafts, skits and a closing ceremony. Campers will learn different ways to express their feelings of loss and to remember a loved one or a life change in a celebratory way.
*This event is open to all youth ages 5-14 years old. Youth do not need to be a member of Girl Scouts to attend.
