Changing the World:

Superhero Style

Discover your many strengths and find new ways to use them. Faster than a speeding paddleboat. More powerful than a PA carrying firewood. Able to leap tall platform tents in a single bound. It’s nature…it’s outdoor cooking…It’s Day Camp 2014! Put on your cape and join us for an incredible experience. You’ll marvel at all that our day camp has to offer. Spectacular scenery, clever crafts and stupendous songs await you on an electrifying adventure with sidekicks (friends) both old and new. This year, develop your superpowers and see how together, we can save the world.

Adult volunteers - vital to our success Volunteer-led day camp cannot happen without adults like you! Volunteering one, two, or more days gives you the unique opportunity to spend time with your camper while ensuring that we meet our safety standards. If you cannot volunteer during the week of camp, please offer to help with pre-camp preparations or camp set-up or take-down. In most troops, parents share the adult volunteer responsibilities. Our 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.

“I had a great time. I am new to Girl Scouts and feel I learned a lot at camp, especially from my CIT (Counselor in Training) and PA (Program Aide), and even some from the troop. The camp volunteer team made me feel comfortable and answered all my concerns and questions. They were easy to talk to. I can’t wait to come back next year.” – Olivia, Brownie mom and first-time day camp volunteer
