Make new friends, paddle your own kayak, zoom down a zipline, or sing songs around a campfire. All of this and more is possible at Volunteer-Led Day Camps.
Volunteer-Led Camps happen all around our council and provide a closer-to-home option for girls and troops. Whether it is your first camp as a Daisy or you’re leading as a Senior Program Aide, these camps will bring adventure to your summer!
These opportunities are led by the amazing volunteers in your area! Areas or service units decide what locations will best serve the girls in their locale, who will serve on their staff, and plan the program for the camp. Council staff trains the camp’s hub staff, supports them in their planning and program development, and sometimes provides specialty staffing.
Depending on the event, girls either attend as individuals/buddies or as part of a troop/group with accompanying troop/group adults.
Volunteer hub staffs–directors, business manager, and leaders–are recruited to plan and carry out
the program with the campers. Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors serve as teen mentors to
assist the campers with their program. Day camps and Camporees offer girls the opportunity to expand their camping skills beyond their troop with adults and older girls that they may already know through other local events.
Stay tuned: Registration information coming soon!
Every Girl Scout should be able to make lasting memories at summer camp! Financial aid is available to provide everyone with access to the same outdoor opportunities. In every instance the amount requested should reflect the true need of the family. Providing leadership opportunities through camp experiences is made possible by the Joyce Seymour Leadership Fund. All applications must be received by April 30, 2024. To apply, click here.
