Girl Scout Questions & Answers

Camping is not permitted on the beach. In the spring, campers are set up inside the Boardwalk’s Cocoanut Grove, excluding tents.
For the fall event, campers may set up along permitted exclusive areas along Boardwalk walkway beside the rides and certain areas do have ocean views.

You may bring an RV to camp overnight. Parking for an RV will be $25 and must park in the Main Parking lot. You will need to process payment on Friday at the check-in ticket booth. An employee will give you a confirmation paper that must be displayed on your dashboard overnight. Security will be notified of your RV. Failure to process payment on Friday will result in full $50 RV parking fee on Saturday.

This overnight has a separate sleeping area designated for males. Due to limited spacing, only family camping will be allowed. No troop camping. The Girl Scout attendee can choose to sleep with their male chaperone in this area. No males can sleep outside this designated area. The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk follows the Girl Scout Standard, “There may be trips when fathers or male leaders/advisers are part of the group. It is not appropriate for males to sleep in the same space with girl members. They may participate only if separate sleeping quarters are available for their use.
