How do I reserve a Girl Scout house?

Reservations for Girl Scout houses are handled through the Service Unit of that Scout house. Visit our website at www.gsctx.org/aboutus/facilities for a list and description of the Girl Scout houses. Click on the location you're interested in and fill out the request form. It will be forwarded to the person who handles reservations for that Scout house.

Do you have to be a Girl Scout to reserve a Girl Scout house?

Many Service Units allow outside groups to reserve their Girl Scout house, however use of the building for Girl Scout events is given priority.

How much does it cost to use a Girl Scout house?

Each Service Unit determines the fees it will charge for the use of its Girl Scout house, but fees are very reasonable and generally are much less than building use fees charged by other organizations in the community.

We'd like to donate some our time for a service project for one of the camps. Whom should we contact?

Each of our camps has either an on-site Ranger or a local caretaker or volunteer who will work with groups or individuals regarding projects. The Facilities portion of our website provides a form to the contact person for each camp.

How can I donate facilities related equipment, supplies, etc...to the council?

We always appreciate when our volunteers and community members consider us as a worthy recipient of their generosity. Anyone wishing to make a donation other than cash should contact the Facilities Director at 800-460-4497 prior to any donation with information about the item(s) they wish to donate. We want to ensure that donations can be put to good use. If an item doesn't complement or support our long term plans, we want to make it possible for that item to go to another organization that can best use it.
