Girl Scouts of Colorado 2014 Summer Guide

Welcome to your Girl Scout summer (and spring)! We’re so excited to have this publication in your hands in the throes of winter when we start dreaming of spring and summer. (This year, you can get registered for camp beginning Jan. 22.) In Girl Scouts those dreams are of fun and adventure with BFFs in your troop, of trying different things and making new friends at summer camp or traveling to far off places. It’s all inside this guide—your path to fun and adventure. We hope your Girl Scout year got off to a great start and that you are in the midst of a super successful Cookie season. Girls learn valuable business skills from the cookie sale and they also give back to their communities. And, they can pay their own way for the exciting Girl Scout events, trips and camps in this guide through cookies. How empowering is that? So whether you are a troop leader helping your girls plan a fun, end-of-school year activity, or engaging your girls to plan a 3-day troop camping experience, use this guide to get started and your adventure will take off. Or if you’re a Girl Scout or her parent, eagerly anticipating the simpler days of summer; use this guide to pick your path to adventure at our beautiful resident camp properties, at day camps in locations across the state, on travel experiences or at summer events.

We’ve added some farm programming at Magic Sky Ranch, as well as the chance for girls to “survive in the wild” and sleep out under the stars or in a fort they construct themselves. Girls will connect with nature while participating in more hiking and backpacking adventures than ever before. If being out on the water is your thing, we’ve got that too. We have several day camps where girls will learn to pilot all kinds of water vessels. And we’re offering a chance for older girls and adults to earn canoeing certifications. I’m thrilled to see the new kinds of day camp programming being offered by our dedicated volunteers. A “novel” camp where girls will spend the week with their favorite literary characters features activities based on their favorite books. What a great way to make books come alive! Favorite day camps are back too, from science to archery to badge-earning and much more. Anything’s possible! Let’s make this the best summer ever! (But don’t forget spring—flip this guide over for events, activities and programs coming up March–July).

Stephanie Foote, CEO

I hope you’re as excited as I am about more adventure and challenge explorations at Magic Sky Ranch and a new focus on simple, sustainable living at Tomahawk Ranch. Homesteading at Tomahawk Ranch is a really cool way for girls to be on the forefront of simple living—by taking care of the animals on the farm, learning about the food cycle and really exploring what recycling, composting and sustainability mean. It’s a perfect fit for Girl Scouts as this 101-year-old organization was into “green” long before being green was cool.

Welcome to the GSCO Summer Guide

How to use this Guide The GSCO Summer Guide has information on resident camp, family camp, troop camp, day camp, boating certification opportunities and travel. Flip the Guide over for a spring/ summer programs and activities section that contains events and activities listed by month from March through July.

Registration We are excited to introduce a more streamlined registration system this year with CampInTouch, where you will register, access health forms, make payments and submit other forms all at one place! However, because we are registering girls for a variety of opportunities, one registration system does not fit all. Please take note of all registration instructions in each section. If in doubt, use the Activity Finder on the GSCO website to be directed to the correct registration system. Resident camp and council-supported day camps register through CampInTouch. You’ll find a link on the Girl Scouts of Colorado website when registration opens Jan. 22 at 9 a.m. Troop and family camps will have registration instructions detailed in each listing. Volunteer-run camps manage their own registration; instructions are provided within each listing.

Fall Sale 2014 The Fall Sale (9/20 – 10/12/2014) is a wonderful way for girls and troops to build funds for their troop before the Cookie Sale gets started. Fall Sale and the Cookie Program develop five essential life skills:goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. Learn more at girlscoutsofcolorado.org/fall-sale

Trips and Travel

There are many opportunities to travel with Girl Scouts. Learning to plan trips and travel as a group is a foundation of Girl Scouting. Travel is about fun, exploration and progressive experiences in appreciating the outdoors, new places and other cultures. As girls grow older and become more seasoned travelers, the scope of their travel broadens to include trips across the country or abroad on girl-planned trips with sister Girl Scouts, or as an individual in a council- or Girl Scouts of the USA-sponsored destination. Register for these events as noted in their descriptions.
