Q: Who are the camp staff? A: Camp is open to all girls ages 5-17. Some programs may have entering grade requirements or prerequisites, which must be met to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of all campers. A: Camp staff are enthusiastic, talented, and caring. They are selected based on maturity, program experience, and genuine desire to work with girls. All counselors are at least 18 years old. While most camp staff are from North Carolina, we work with Camp Counselors USA to recruit diverse staff from many different countries around the world. These staff members share their culture with the campers through camp activities. Q: My camper is not a member of Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines but would like to attend camp. Can she attend, and are there additional fees? A: Girl Scout camps are open to all girls. Girls who are not members of our council will pay an additional $50 on their total camp bill. Q: Where will campers sleep? A: Girls are grouped in units. Depending on their program choice, girls may sleep in cabins or platform tents. Each unit has trained counselors housed in separate quarters within the living unit, but close enough to supervise campers. In select sessions, counselors may sleep in the same cabin as girls at Camp Hardee and Camp Mary Atkinson. Q: Can my camper attend camp with a buddy/friend? 2 01 4 S U M M E R F U N G U I D E A: Yes, girls can attend camp with a buddy. During registration, a buddy’s name can be listed. Buddies must be in the same age group and both register for the same session. Sorry, we cannot honor requests for more than one buddy. 8 Q: What type of training does camp staff receive? A: Before camp begins, staff attend an intensive on-site training, which includes activity programming, outdoor skills, songs, games, first aid and safety, emergency procedures, team building, program age level characteristics, dealing with homesickness, and more. Q: My potential camper has special needs. Can she come to camp? A: Each year, many girls with special needs are able to participate in our camp program. Girls must be able to function in a 6:1 girl-to-adult ratio. Special needs may include physical, medical, developmental, dietary, behavioral, or communicative. It is our hope to be able to serve all girls wishing to attend resident camp. Providing a safe and positive experience to all campers is of utmost importance to us. The council reserves the right to make decisions of participation based on the extent of the girl’s needs and our ability to meet those needs in the camp setting, as well as other factors as deemed appropriate. We are concerned about the health and safety of all campers, and we want to ensure we have appropriate professional and medical services to meet needs. Please contact the camp director at 800.284.4475 to discuss the camp program and nature of your girl’s needs before registering for camp. Q: My camper has special dietary needs or restrictions. How are menus managed at camp? With regard to special diets, menus for programs are planned with the general camp population and economy of associated costs in mind. A; We will make every attempt to provide for special dietary needs within the scope of our regular menus. Please contact the camp director at 800.284.4475 for more information. Q: Can my camper call home during the week? A: No, we encourage independence and self-reliance. Campers are not permitted to make or receive phone calls. The camp director will contact parents if the camper has a medical problem, is excessively homesick, or has an emergency. Please let your child know before camp that she will not be able to call home and that you are comfortable with this. It is important that you do not send your child to camp with a cell phone, as there is little or no coverage—and, most importantly, it will send a conflicting message to other campers. We are partners with you in your child’s summer experience, and we hope that you will support us in making camp happy and fun for everyone. Q: What measures are taken to ensure my child’s safety while at camp? A: We are dedicated to providing safe and secure camps for our campers. Each camp follows the guidelines set by the American Camp Association as well as those set by Girl Scouts of the USA through Safety Activity Checkpoints. Staff are housed in close proximity to camper cabins and tents, and buildings and grounds are checked nightly. All camp staff and adults spending the night at camp must successfully complete a criminal background check. Q: If our plans change, how do I cancel my child’s session? Can I get a refund? A: If your plans change and your camper can no longer attend her camp session, please notify the council’s helpdesk as soon as possible. Once you register for a session, you have made a commitment to that session and are responsible for payment in full. No refunds are available unless you have a medical emergency with a written doctor’s statement, or the session has a waitlist and we can fill your camper’s space. In those cases, a refund minus the non-refundable deposit will be considered. Please see page 27 for our refund and cancellation policy. Q: Can I visit my camper during a camp session? Q: When is the last day to register for camp? A: No, to help maintain program continuity and ensure the safety of campers, visitors are only allowed at camp during open house and arrival and departure hours. A: Camp registrations will close two weeks prior to the session your camper wishes to attend. Exceptions can be made if space is available once registration has been closed. Please note that your camper must have a doctor’s signature on her health history form in order to attend camp. Campers must have had an exam within 12 months of the last day of her session. Q: What happens if my camper has a difficult time adjusting to camp? A: Camp staff will do everything possible to help girls adjust to camp life. However, resident camp staff reserves the right to send any girl home who consistently exhibits inappropriate behavior or endangers herself or others. The girl’s parent/guardian is responsible for picking her up, and fees will not be refunded. 9 Whatâ€™s in Store at Camp! Camp is a special place, full of opportunities for growth and personal development. Girls look forward to all the activities and experiences that make camp so special. Camp emphasizes opportunities for a girl to value herself, further develop her skills, build relationships and participate in the camp community, appreciate the natural world, and have fun in a safe, healthy environment. Girls will be taken care of by quality camp staff that truly cares, they will bunk in facilities that will provide a comfortable stay, and they will make new friends and create memories that will last a lifetime. Session themes do not affect the basic camp activities (swimming, canoeing, archery, arts & crafts, etc.). Basic activities go on regardless of theme all summer. Themes affect things such as decorations, music, skits, costumes, etc. A typical dayâ€™s schedule will vary based on the camp and program but will be similar to the following: 2 01 4 S U M M E R F U N G U I D E 7:00 a.m. 8:00 a.m. 9:30 a.m. 12:30 p.m. 2:30 p.m. 6:00 p.m. 7:15 p.m. 9:30 p.m. 10 Wake Up Breakfast/Flag Ceremony/Kapers (chores) Morning Activities Lunch and Rest Time Afternoon Activities/Unit Time Dinner/Flag Ceremony All Camp Activity Shower Time & Lights Out Family FUN SESSIONS!

For the past 35 years, Camp Kaleidoscope has been a huge part of Camp Graham. Through Camp Kaleidoscope, chronically ill children are given a chance to take a break from hospitals and have fun in the outdoors. The boys and girls who attend Camp Kaleidoscope have non-communicable chronic diseases such as cancer, asthma, kidney disease, or heart disease. Doctors, nurses, and other professionals from the Department of Pediatrics at Duke University Medical Center spend the week with the campers in the Kaleidoscope Program. They participate in all aspects of camp. For most of these kids, going to Camp Graham is their first camping experience because they cannot go camping without doctors, nurses, therapists, and special equipment. Without the Kaleidoscope program, many of the children would never have a chance to experience the fun of summer camp! 2 01 4 S U M M E R F U N G U I D E Troop Camp 14 Spend time exploring the wilds of Camp Graham while participating in swimming, archery, or canoeing.

Camp Extras Fees Fees for trading post gift cards, camp care packages, T-shirts and photos are fully refundable with a two-week notice prior to the camp session. Please email your cancellation notice and request for refund to email@example.com. Day Camp Girl Scouts—North Carolina Coastal Pines reserves the right to cancel an event due to insufficient registration, acts of nature, or any other reason beyond its control.
