What is Day Camp?

Day camp is a place where girls are encouraged to try new experiences, learn basic outdoor skills, and make new friends. Our aim is for each and every girl to have a positive camp experience as she becomes more comfortable with the outdoors and in her own abilities and sense of self.

Day Camp will be just the beginning of your outdoor experience with Girl Scouts. Girls will discover nature, learn flag ceremonies, do kapers (camp chores), cook outdoors, spend time with PAs (teen mentors), make crafts, go creeking, and much more through a 5-day session held Monday–Friday typically between 9:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.

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 Program Aide or Advanced Program Aide Leader.

 

How Do I Register for Day Camp?

Registration begins April 1.

We will have staggered scheduling this year, where some camps will have different starting registration times. Camps fill on a first come, first served basis, so be sure to secure your spot!

Staggered Registration schedule

Registration opens 8:00 a.m.

  • All camps* *except those registering for Sugarbush 2, Ken-Jockety 3, or Ken-Jockety 9

Registration opens 10:00 a.m.

  • Sugarbush 2

Visit www.gsoh.org to register online using the Council Online Registration Access (CORA) service. In order to register online using CORA, you must be a currently registered Girl Scout member and pay with a credit or debit card.

OR

Complete the day camp registration form or email camp@gsoh.org to request one, or by calling 1-800-621-7042.

All paper registration forms that arrive before registration opens will be held and treated as equal on April 1. Any registration forms received PRIOR to March 13, 2015, will be returned to sender. If you cannot be placed because there are no spaces available, a complete refund of fees paid will be made.

Please check your dates carefully! A $20 transfer fee will be applied if you chose to switch to a different week after your registration has been processed.

 

Is There Bus Transportation to the Day Camps?

Busing is available for an additional $50 per person at the following camps:

  • KJ-2
  • KJ-3
  • KJ-8
  • KJ-9

Is There Financial Assistance Available for Day Camp?

Absolutely! Request Financial Assistance by completing the Financial Assistance form or by emailing camp@gsoh.org, or by calling 1-800-621-7042. Also, a parent or guardian may consider volunteering, as each volunteer receives one fee waiver to be given to any relative who is currently a registered Girl Scout.

 

What If I Need to Cancel? Will I Receive a Refund?

To qualify for a refund of a camp fee paid, you must submit a written request to the Council no less than 15 business days prior to the first day of the day camp and state why you will be unable to attend.

A refund request based on last minute cancellation because of sudden illness, death of a family member, or other family emergency must be submitted to the Council within two weeks after the first day of the camp session you were to attend. In the event of any cancellation, 10% of the fee paid will be retained for handling charges.

Refunds will not be issued for no shows, verbal requests, requests made after day camp, or less than 15 business days notice.

 

 

How Do I Volunteer at Day Camp?

Are you interested in providing girls their first outdoor experience with Girl Scouts? Do you love nature and want to make an impact, while also creating fun memories? Then volunteering at day camp my just be your thing!
We depend on dedicated volunteers to help us create and deliver nine successful, fun-filled weeks of day camp each year. The number of girls who can be accepted for camp is tied directly to the number of adults who volunteer. So, we ask that you, or anyone else you know who may be interested, to please consider volunteering at day camp. With your help, this summer is going to be a blast with memories and laughs to last a lifetime!

What are the benefits?
• The opportunity to make lifelong friends and memories you’ll talk about for years!
• Guaranteed placement in the day camp of your choice
• One fee waiver to be given to any relative who is currently a registered Girl Scout.
(Pre-school and boys programs are available at most camps at a minimal cost.)

 

Girls are waiting for you! Please sign-up by Friday, March 13, 2015. This allows us to know how many girls we can accommodate in planning ahead for each individual camp. To apply, you’ll need to complete the:

*If you have previously completed the Application for Service in Girl Scouting and are an active volunteer, you only need to complete the Day Camp Volunteer Position Request Form.
Once approved as a volunteer, there are additional day camp training requirements. Please contact the camp director for details.

What Are The Opportunities for Teen Leadership at Day Camp?

Day camp is the perfect environment for girls 6th-12th grade to engage in leadership opportunities. You will work closely with younger girls, sharpen your skills, and earn different leadership awards.

Please read the descriptions carefully below to know which program is for you!

Leader in Action – Formerly PIT (PAL In Training) are girls who have completed 6th grade and are at least 12 years old. In the Leader in Action program you will learn leadership and communication skills and your group will get to choose which of the three LiA Awards you’d like to earn. You will also learn basic outdoor skills and learn how to teach them. No previous day camp experience is required.
Program Aide Leader – Girls who have completed 7th grade, are at least 13 years old and/or are a Program Aide Leader for the first time. The Program Aide leadership training will be provided at camp and is designed to help you become a more confident, effective leader and will teach you skills for working with younger Girl Scouts. The program is designed to practice teaching activities to each other and learn how to serve as a mentor, role model, and leader to younger girls. We will also help you become proficient in outdoor skills and other day camp tasks.

 

Program Aide Leader 2- Girls who have completed 8th grade, are at least 14 years old and have been a PA1. You will earn service hours towards recognitions, assist day camp adult volunteers, and continue to build upon your leadership skills.
Advanced Program Aide Leader – Girls who have completed 9th grade, are at least 15 years old and have progressed through both a PA1 and a PA2. You will demonstrate leadership skills by developing and leading a special activity. Once you’ve registered, the day camp director will contact you to discuss your program activity.

 

Note: All teen mentors must be currently registered Girl Scouts and there are training requirements for all levels of Program Aide Leader.

 

How Do I Register For One of the Teen Leadership Programs?

Complete the camper registration either online or a paper registration form. The regular day camp registration fee applies to the LiAs (formerly PITs) as they are still campers. Program Aides, Program Aide 2s and Advanced Program Aides pay a $15 registration fee.
