RENO, NV – Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada (GSSN) will be doing summer camp a little different this year. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions in California, where Camp Wasiu II is located, and a temporary halt on improvements, such as bridge repair, that are unable to be made during the pandemic, Camp Wasiu II will remain closed for Summer 2021. Instead, GSSN will be offering Wasiu on the Road, a five-week day camp program that will travel the council area this summer, with camp taking place in a different location every week.
“We know how important the Girl Scout camp experience is to our members and how difficult last summer was on their morale,” said Brittany Taylor, Outdoor Experience Manager at Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada. “We so wish we could reopen Camp Wasiu II this summer, but we hope Wasiu on the Road will help fill that void and offer new opportunities for girls throughout our council to experience some of that camp magic. Each week of camp will feature all our favorite Camp Wasiu traditions and be specially tailored to the locations we’ll be visiting.”
Wasiu on the Road kicks off June 16-18 in Portola, before stopping in Tahoe June 21-25, Reno June 28-July 2, Elko July 19-23, and wrapping up in Bishop July 29-31. In addition, GSSN will be offering a week of all virtual camp with Wasiu on the Web June 14-18. There will also be a week of special one day events in Reno June 7-11, as well as Wasiu One Days July 12-16, a week of one day programs sprinkled throughout the council area.
