Be a part of Girl Scout Day Camp to experience all the fun, friendships, new skills, and lifetime memories.
 
The Importance of Volunteer-led Day Camp
  • Volunteer-led day camps are community-based adventures led by talented volunteers who have organized a camp experience for Girl Scouts and the community.
  • Each day camp has their own unique activities and traditions. Every camp provides leadership opportunities for older girls and outdoor skill building for younger girls.
  • Girls come year after year while they build on their skills from the summer before. Progression is built in all programming from kindergarten through high school.
  • Day camps rely on adult volunteers in all aspects of camp. Without you, these camps are unable to serve girls in the community.
  • All camps are supported by council staff and meet or exceed state and national standards for programming, health and safety, budgeting, and more.
Volunteers tell us that their favorite part about being at camp is spending time with their camper, getting to know her friends, and seeing her build new skills and have fun.  
 
How do I get updates all year?
Make sure you are a current Girl Scout so you get the day camp book  and any emails about camp. Everybody in K5 through adults can become Girl Scout members. The new membership year starts October 1, 2014. Register as a Girl Scout.
