Why Camp?

We are excited that you are considering sending your daughter to Camp Molly Lauman this summer! Camp is a place for girls to grow and develop, build confidence, and make new friends in a safe and nurturing environment. We understand that choosing to send your daughter to camp can be a tough decision and hope that you will find the following information helpful.
It is our goal that a girl at resident camp will:

  • Work in a democratic partnership with camp staff to help select, plan, and carry out environmentally sound program activities.
  • Practice human-relation skills by living harmoniously with others in a culturally diverse environment.
  • Grow in self-esteem through her interaction with others and by planning and participating in program activities.
  • Have fun while learning new skills.

Benefits and anticipated outcomes from a camp experience include development in the following areas:
1. Social Skills – leadership, communication, and participation.
2. Self-Respect, Character Building, responsibility, resourcefulness, and resilience.
3. Community Living/Service – caring, fairness, citizenship, and trustworthiness.

Camper Forms

Health and permission forms are required for every camper. These can be submitted via CampDoc.com.

CampDoc.com is an electronic record system for camps that will help us consolidate and integrate camper health information, permission forms, and releases into a centralized and secure location. Not only will this make filling out your camper’s forms a breeze, but it will also give our healthcare staff instant access to camper health information, and eliminate uncertainty over whether your forms have been received by camp or filled out correctly or legibly.

Additionally, the information will automatically be transferred to the roster of any GSOH camp that your camper is attending this year, both day camp and resident camp. Plus, if your camper returns to camp next year, you’ll only need to review and update the information!

The security, confidentiality, and privacy of your camper’s personal information will always be protected. Only healthcare staff and/or administrators for each specific session will have access to camper information, and the CampDoc.com site is secure, encrypted, and password protected.

NEW USERS – Within two weeks of registering for camp, look for a welcome email from CampDoc.com with information about how to complete your camper’s forms. Please set register@campdoc.com as a ‘safe sender,’ to avoid accidental delivery to junk and spam folders. If you have not received your welcome email by the first day of the month following your registration, please contact us and we’ll help you troubleshoot.

EXISITING USERS – just log on to app.campdoc.com to update your profile. Your new camp sessions should show in CampDoc within two weeks of registration.
