Day Camp

NOTICE: Due to low enrollment numbers, Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland has decided to cancel Dillon Day Camp the week of July 21–28. We will notify registered campers and issue a full refund. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Day Camp gives girls the opportunity to experience the great outdoors in a five-day camp session. daycampThe fun-filled days include flag ceremonies, songs, games, archery, crafts, camp fire cooking, and some sites are able to offer canoeing and swimming.

Day Camp is available to all girls who have completed kindergarten and up (Non-Girl Scouts may attend if they become registered members). Girls can register individually or with a buddy, but Day Camp is not a troop activity. There are also opportunities for teenage girls to complete leadership hours as a Day Camp PAL (Program Aide Leader) or APL (Advanced Program Leader).

Volunteering at Day Camp

DSC_0007We rely on dedicated volunteers to make camp happen. We are looking for adult volunteers to help staff this year’s day camps.

Volunteering isn’t just for the girls—there are benefits for you too:

  • Training and skills to work with girls outdoors.
  • Eligibility for one fee waiver and guaranteed placement into day camp for any relative who is a currently registered Girl Scout.

What are you waiting for? Volunteer now and be involved in planning individual camp sessions for 2014.
