Day Camp for Daisies and Brownies
Can we get a sneak peek of camp?
Yes, most day camps will run their own Camp Sneak Peek. Check back here December 1 for a listing of dates and locations. This is a great way to meet your volunteer director and give the girls a chance to try activities that they can do at camp.
There are Open Houses at two of the camp properties (Camp Winding River and Chinook Program Center) on Saturday, March 8, 2:00-4:00 p.m.
for troops and/or families.
Is she old enough?
Yes! Last summer over 1900 Daisies and Brownies attended day camp.
The schedule is created specifically for each grade's interests, needs, and abilities. Crafts and games fit their level so it keeps girls interested and keeps them learning new skills. It's all about progression! Each year they will learn something new and different.
What will she gain from day camp?
Girls learn more about nature and themselves through camp as they explore the outdoors in the fresh air.
Why is day camp important?
61% of volunteers saw girls making new friends.
62% of parents said that in just five days of camp, they noticed their Girl Scout had more self-confidence and was more independent.
89% of girls learned skills or lessons that they can use in other places like at home, with friends, or at school.
Children make genuine connections with other girls and caring role models, rediscover the fun in being active, learn their own strengths, and find their own voices. They get a chance to unplug from the constant buzz of computers, video games, television, and phones at camp - this is where they find themselves.
Can adults go too?
Yes, adults are invited and wanted at camp! Sign up to spend a day or the whole week with her. Recruit other adult family members so they can experience the fun of camp too while bonding with their Girl Scout. Over 1600
adults volunteered at camp last summer. Be one of them!
