    SUMMER CAMPGirl Scout2015

  • Girl Scout camping is an experience that provides creative, educational opportunities in groups living in the outdoors. Its purpose is to use the Girl Scout Program, trained leadership, and the resources of the natural surroundings to contribute to each campers mental, social, physical, and spiritual growth.

    Day camp is an experience for girls from different troops and groups to meet outdoors each day. Girls attend as individual campers and are placed in units according to their grade in the fall. Experience day camp and make new friends!

    Resident camp is a camping experience for girls to live in the outdoors for three or more days. Girls from different troops and/or groups sign up as individual campers and are placed in units according to their desired program activity. Girls and their counselors plan activities, taking advantage of the opportunities available to them.

    Troops Love Camping (TLC)... is an experience for the whole troop! Want to share summer camp with your Girl Scout friends? Then this is defi nitely for you! We will supply food, supplies, and activities for your troop.

    Send a girl to campCamp scholarshipsIt is our goal to continue to provide opportunities for girls who want to go to camp. Camp scholarships provide this life-changing experience for girls who may not otherwise be able to participate because of their economic circumstances. Contributions to camp scholarships make it possible for all girls throughout the 45 counties we serve to attend camp and have the same opportunities and experiences regardless of their ability to pay. In addition camp scholarships help underwrite the cost of camp activities, keeping fees low for all girls.

    With your help, we will continue to give Girl Scouts the opportunities they need to become the leaders they want to be today, and the leaders our community needs them to be tomorrow.

    $1,000 = One week of resident camp for four girls

    $500 = One week of day camp for fi ve girls

    At day camp youll try new craft projects, sing, discover the wonders of the outdoors and learn how to live with nature, play games, experiment with science, math, and technology, make new friends, make lasting memories, and for one night, your unit will remain in camp together. Day camp is a great way to build your courage, confi dence, and character!

    Day camp is for all girls who have completed kindergarten through 7th grade. Girl Scouts from other councils, as well as non-members, are welcome to attend day camp.

    Refunds are given only if cancellation is received at least two weeks prior to sessions.

    $25 of fee will be retained for handling charges.

    Refunds are not given to no shows or campers leaving camp early due to personal reasons including homesickness, sports, family vacations, behavior, etc.

    Questions and answers

    1. What do I wear to day camp?Old clothes are the best and should include shorts or long pants, T-shirts or tank tops (no halters or midriffs), socks/shoes (closed-toe and heel only no sandals), jacket or sweatshirt, raincoat or poncho if the weatherman predicts wet conditions.

    What do I bring to day camp each day?Bring these items daily to camp in a backpack or similar type bag. Mark the bag with the campers name, unit name, and bus stop name or car rider.

    Hat or bandana Swim suit and towel Closed-toe-shoes An extra pair of closed-toe-shoes (that you

    don't mind getting wet) A plastic grocery bag for wet close and shoes Raincoat or rain poncho (if weather warrants it) A water bottle (bottles with a screw on lid are

    best; no bottles with straws please) Sunscreen and insect repellent (non-aerosol) Lunch for Monday-Wednesday

    Is there anything my camper can't bring ?We do not allow any of the following at camp:

    Electronic devices (including cell phones and MP3 players) Weapons, alcohol or tobacco products Drugs (prescription and over-the-counter drugs must be turned in to the camp health supervisor)

    If my camper has a game/event, can I pick her up and return her at anytime? We do appreciate all campers remaining at camp for the entire day. It is disruptive to your camper and the other campers in her unit, to pick her up midway through the day and bring her back.

    Refund procedure The fee for resident camp is not designed to cover the entire cost of a girls stay at camp. The remaining cost is covered by various funding sources that support Girl Scouts. For this reason the refund policy is as follows:

    Refunds are given only if cancellation is received two weeks prior to session.

    $25 of fee will be retained for handling charges. The $10 deposit for PAGs will not be refunded if we place your child in a program .

    Refunds will not be given to campers who are no-shows or who leave camp early . No refunds will be made for a child leaving early regardless of the reason. We will try to place your camper in another session if she cannot attend camp due to a failed lice exam. If she cannot be placed, there will be no refund.

    Questions and answersCan my daughter request to go to camp with a buddy?Resident camping is about camping with friends, both old and new. Girls may request to stay in the same unit with one girl in the same session. Please write the buddys name in the appropriate space on the application. Requests must be mutual and only one buddy will be honored. Please mail in the two forms at the same time or we might not be able to place both girls in the same session. Because making new friends is also important, only one request per girl, per unit will be honored.

    Can I take my camper out of camp to play sports? Can I pick her up early?We do appreciate all campers remaining in camp for the entire session. It is disruptive to your daughter and the other campers in her unit if you pick her up midway through her session and bring her back a day later.

    However, if you wish to take your camper out of camp, you will need to contact the camp director prior to or during check-in on the fi rst day. Your camper will need to be picked up at 3:30 p.m. and will not be able to return to camp until 8:30 a.m. the next day.

    How may I contact my camper? May I visit or call her?Parents and other family members may visit the camps during their designated open house. We do not accept visitors during resident camp as seeing a mom or dad may spark homesickness in many campers. Also, because telephone calls from home tend to increase the likelihood of homesickness, we ask that you refrain from calling camp. We need to keep our phone lines available for business and emergency purposes. We also ask that you do not allow your daughters to bring cell phones to camp. Parents may always call camp directors for an update on their daughter.

    What health precautions are taken? Is a physical exam required?All campers attending camp this summer must have a medical history form that has been signed by their doctor, which means they need to have been seen by a doctor in the last 24 months. A resident camp health history and exam form will be included in campers confi rmation packet.

    As part of our check-in procedures, all campers must be seen at the infi rmary on opening day.We will do a head and foot check and discuss any special needs with each camper. If your daughter is on medication, her counselors will administer her medication as noted on the bottle. Campers are required to turn in all medications, both prescribed and over-the-counter, in the original containers, to the health director on opening day.

    What if my daughter has special needs? At camp, we make every effort to allow all girls to enjoy our camp sessions. If you have concerns about your daughters ability to participate in our camp, please call us before registering her for camp. For girls with a chronic illness or disability, a written statement from her physician is required and must indicate the girl can participate in routine activities without harm to herself. Routine activities include hiking at least two miles each day, showering and changing clothes by herself, and walking up and down sizeable hills possibly in the dark with a buddy. If your daughter cannot do these activities without help, we can suggest other camp opportunities that she might enjoy. Unfortunately, we cannot offer one-on-one helpers for campers.

    How often do campers swim and shower? Weather permitting, all campers have the opportunity to swim and shower every day of their session with the exception of opening and closing days.

    Will my daughter need money at camp? No, she will not have the opportunity to purchase anything while at camp. Snacks are free every afternoon and she will receive her T-shirt at the end of the session.

    What if my daughter gets homesick? Because homesickness is common at camp, especially for fi rst time campers, our staff members are trained to provide a caring, supportive environment for your child. Homesickness usually passes in a day or two. Your encouraging attitude both before and during camp will help prevent homesickness. Please remember that campers who overcome homesickness have met a real challenge and can feel a sense of pride in themselves. If a campers homesickness should persist, the parents/ guardians will be notifi ed by the camp director. More information on homesickness will be mailed with confi rmations. Campers do not have access to phones and may not bring cell phones.

    What if the weather is bad?While at camp, every counselor is in touch with the camp director who has access to a weather radio. We are aware of any storms headed our way and have procedures in place to protect our campers. Some activities may be affected by weather, and in this case refunds are not issued. Please keep in mind that there is only one phone line that does need to be kept open during inclement weather in case of emergency.

    What grade does my daughter need to be in to attend camp sessions at camp?The grades listed are the grades that your daughters should be going into in the fall. All campers must be in grades 2-8 to attend resident camp this summer.

    How can I prepare my camper?It is important for parents to talk with their camper about what to expect at camp this summer. Be sure to emphasize the good time she will have. The American Camp Association has great resources for parents available at campparents.org.

    What is camp life like?All campers are expected to participate in all-camp kapers, including making their bed, maintaining their living area, and rotating responsibilities in the dining hall. Each camper is also responsible for her own personal care and grooming. Campers will sleep either in a unit house with their counselors in a separate room nearby, or in tents with the counselors in the unit. Also, campers will earn age-level appropriate Girl Scout recognitions.

    What are the age restrictions for the adventurous activities? Archery 9 years old

    Climbing wall 9 years old

    Zip line 10 years old

    is an experience for girls from different troops and groups to meet outdoors each day. Girls attend as individual campers and are placed in units according to their grade in the fall. Please remember this is not troop camp and the entire troop will not be placed together in one unit. Attend day camp and make new friends!

    At day camp youll try new craft projects, sing, discover the wonders of the outdoors and learn how to live with nature, play games, experiment with science, math, and technology, make new friends, make lasting memories, and for one night, your unit will remain in camp together. Bus transportation will not be offered Thursday night or Friday morning if you choose not to spend the night. Day camp is a great way to build your courage, confi dence, and character!

    Day camp is for all girls in grades K-7. Girl Scouts from other councils, as well as non-members, are welcome to attend day camp. Girls regardless of their ability, may attend the session of their choice at camp. Girls who are no longer active in a troop or have never been members may attend camp by paying a one time fee of $30.* For girls with a chronic illness or disability, a written statement from her physician is required and must indicate the girl can participate in routine activities without harm to herself.

    *Includes Girl Scouts of the USA membership fee.

    Please fi ll out the girl member registration form in the back of this book along with the camp registration form.

    There are day camp aide opportunities for girls entering grades 8 through 12. A day camp aide assists the adults in leading a unit of girls at camp.

    Volunteers make up most of the day camp staff.

    Positions that are held by volunteers include directors, assistant directors, craft leaders, unit leaders, and assistant unit leaders. Wont you please consider becoming a volunteer this summer? The camps also employ paid, seasonal personnel such as: health care supervisor, lifeguards, kitchen staff, tag-a-long unit staff, day camp aide instructors, bus monitors, and Math and Science Center staff.

    Day camp begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. All campers will have the opportunity to spend one night (Thursday) at camp. On the overnight, girls will sleep in a tent/cabin with other girls. Adults will have separate sleeping quarters. Only registered adults volunteering the entire 5 days are allowed to stay for the overnight. Child care before and after hours is not provided.

    Day camp is not the same as troop camping. At day camp, you and one friend will be assigned to a unit where you can work and play together all week. Each girl should list the others name on their registration form to guarantee placement together. Girls and parents should agree on their campers buddy. Often a buddys name is listed, but that girl already has arranged to be buddies with someone else. Placement together will not be possible if more than one name or different names are listed. Troops are not guaranteed to be placed together. Troop members attending the same session are not guaranteed the same unit assignments. All girls are placed in a unit based on the grade they will be entering in the fall. Camp buddies should be in the same grade.

    Questions and answersWho may attend Girl Scout camp?Camp sessions are open to all girls entering grades 2-12 in the fall regardless of race, color, creed, or national origin. All girls who are registered Girl Scout members may attend. Girls who are no longer active in a troop or have never been members may attend camp by paying a one time fee of $30.* For girls with a chronic illness or disability, a written statement from her physician is required and must indicate the girl can participate in routine activities without harm to herself.

    *Includes Girl Scouts of the USA membership fee.

    Please fi ll out the girl member registration form in the back of this book along with the camp registration form.

    Can my daughter request to go to camp with a buddy?Resident camping is about camping with friends, both old and new. Girls may request to stay in the same unit with one girl in the same session. Please write the buddys name in the appropriate space on the application. Requests must be mutual and only one buddy will be honored. Please mail in the two forms at the same time or we might not be able to place both girls in the same session. Because making new friends is also important, only one request per girl, per unit will be honored.

    Can I take my camper out of camp to play sports? Can I pick her up early?We do appreciate all campers remaining in camp for the entire session. It is disruptive to your daughter and the other campers in her unit if you pick her up midway through her session and bring her back a day later.

    How may I contact my camper? May I visit or call her?Parents and other family members may visit the camps during their designated open house. We do not accept visitors during resident camp as seeing a mom or dad may spark homesickness in many campers. Also, because telephone calls from home tend to increase the likelihood of homesickness, we ask that you refrain from calling camp. We need to keep our phone lines available for business and emergency purposes. We also ask that you do not allow your daughters to bring

    cell phones to camp. Parents are always welcome to call the camp director for an update on their daughter.

    What health precautions are taken? Is a physical exam required?All campers attending camp this summer must have a medical history form that has been signed by their doctor, which means they need to have been seen by a doctor in the last 24 months. A resident camp health history and exam form will be included in the campers confi rmation packet. As part of our check-in procedures, all campers must be seen at the infi rmary on opening day. We will do a head check and discuss any special needs with each camper. If your daughter is on medication, we will administer her medication as noted on the bottle. Campers are required to turn in all medications, both prescribed and over-the-counter, in the original containers, to the health director on opening day.

    What if my daughter has special needs?At camp, we make every effort to allow all girls to enjoy our camp sessions. If you have concerns about your daughters ability to participate in our camp, please call us before registering her for camp. For girls with a chronic illness or disability, a written statement from her physician is required and must indicate the girl can participate in routine activities without harm to herself. Routine activities include hiking at least two miles each day, living in a tent with steps, showering and changing clothes by herself, and walking up and down sizeable hills possibly in the dark with a buddy. If your daughter cannot do these activities without help, we can suggest other camp opportunities that she might enjoy. Unfortunately, we cannot offer one-on-one helpers for campers.

    During the horse session, how many lessons will she have? What might she learn about horses at camp?Weather permitting, girls in Yearlings will go riding in the ring two times. They will also have two ground lessons. Campers in Hoofprints will be split into four riding groups. Each day, the groups will rotate through cleaning, tacking, and riding the horses. Each girl will have time to ride each day, not including opening day, closing day, and Sundays. Girls attending Ringmasters, and Mini Wranglers and Wranglers will also have time to ride each day. They will spend some of their time

    at the barn learning more advanced horse care and do some trail riding. Yearlings will not leave the riding ring.

    How often do campers swim and shower?Weather permitting, all campers have the opportunity to swim and shower every day of their session with the exception of opening and closing days.

    Will my daughter need money at camp?No, she will not have the opportunity to purchase anything while at camp. She will receive her T-shirt at the end of the session. If, however, your daughter is in a session that will be traveling out of camp, you may send extra money along with her. We ask that your daughter does not bring an excessive amount, as her needs will be taken care of while attending camp. The money you send will be spent on anything she wants.

    What if my daughter gets homesick?Because homesickness is common at camp, especially for fi rst time campers, our staff members are trained to provide a caring, supportive environment for your child. Homesickness usually passes in a day or two. Please do not be alarmed if the fi rst letter you receive from your daughter refl ects her feeling of homesickness. It was probably written at a low time, and by the time you receive it your daughter is having a great time playing with her new friends. Your encouraging attitude both before and during camp will help prevent homesickness. Please remember that campers who overcome homesickness have met a real challenge and can feel a sense of pride in themselves. If a campers homesickness should persist, the parents/guardians will be notifi ed by the camp director. More information on homesickness will be mailed with confi rmations. Campers do not have access to phones and may not bring cell phones.

    What if the weather is bad?While at camp, every counselor is in touch with the camp director who has access to a weather radio. We are aware of any storms headed our way and have procedures in place to protect our campers. Some activities may be affected by weather, and in this case refunds are not issued. Please keep in mind that there is only one phone line that does need to be kept open during inclement weather in case of emergency.

    What grade does my daughter need to be in to attend camp sessions at camp?The grades listed for each session are the grades that your daughters should be going into in the fall. All campers must be entering second grade or higher to attend resident camp this summer.

    How can I prepare my camper?It is important for parents to talk with their camper about what to expect at camp this summer. Be sure to emphasize the good time she will have. The American Camp Association has great resources for parents available at campparents.org.

    What is camp life like?All campers are expected to participate in all-camp kapers, including making their bed, maintaining their living area, and rotating responsibilities in the dining hall. Each camper is also responsible for her own personal care and grooming. Campers will sleep either in a unit house with their counselors in a separate room nearby, or in platform tents with the counselors in their own tent in the unit. Campers are given a voice in planning all activities, which could include art projects, swimming, cookouts, and campfi re activities.

Whether a girl dreams of being an Olympian, riding in rodeo, or simply loves to ride horses every summer, campers will be taught in a safe and comfortable learning environment. Our instructors all have previous experience teaching horseback riding, and provide close and constant supervision during all aspects of the riding program.

    Emphasis in all programs and levels is on skill development, progression and expanding knowledge of horses and horse care. Girls will take part in the horse care and management by feeding, cleaning and grooming. Within their registered program, campers are placed in classes based on their skill level.
