Encampment is Girl Scouts of Alaska’s largest camping event! Every two years, Girl Scouts from across Alaska meet at the Palmer Fairgrounds to spend the first weekend in June camping out, meeting new friends, learning new skills, and having fun!

Encampment 2022 will be GSAK’s 20th Encampment! Not much has changed at Encampment since Captain Cook’s Returnagain Roundup in 1978 and we have heard from our members and seen in the registration numbers that what worked in 1978 (and beyond) may not be working anymore. Our 20th Encampment seems like a great opportunity to freshen up the programming and make some changes.

We need your input to help make this the best Encampment yet! Check out the video below to learn more about how Encampment has worked in the past and the proposed changes for 2022. After watching the video, share your feedback by completing the survey. 

The ideas and options in this video and survey are just ideas and options – we have not made any decisions or finalized any plans yet. 

If you have other ideas, we’d love to hear them! You can email your ideas to
