Send a girl to camp Camp scholarships It is our goal to continue to provide opportunities for girls who want to go to camp. Camp scholarship provides this life-changing experience for girls who may not otherwise be able to participate because of their economic circumstances. Contributions to the camp scholarship make it possible for all girls throughout the 45 counties we serve to attend camp and have the same opportunities and experiences regardless of their ability to pay. In addition the camp scholarships help underwrite the cost of camp programs, keeping fees low for all girls. With your help, we will continue to give Girl Scouts the opportunities they need to become the leaders they want to be today, and the leaders our community needs them to be tomorrow.

Camp Sycamore Valley � Day camp

Camp open house | Saturday, May 31 | noon-2 p.m. 8439 State Road 26 E, Lafayette, IN 47905

Day camp at Camp Sycamore Valley …is an experience for girls from different troops and groups to meet outdoors each day. Girls attend as individual campers and are placed in units according to their grade in the fall. Please remember this is not troop camp and the entire troop will not be placed together in one unit. Attend day camp and make new friends!

Child care before and after hours is not provided. Day camp is not the same as troop camping. At day camp, you and one friend will be assigned to a unit where you can work and play together all week. Each girl should list the other’s name on their registration form to guarantee placement together. Girls and parents should agree on their camper’s buddy. Often a buddy’s name is listed, but that girl already has arranged to be buddies with someone else. Placement together will not be possible if more than one name or different names are listed. Troops are not guaranteed to be placed together. Troop members attending the same session are not guaranteed the same unit assignments. All girls are placed in a unit based on the grade they will be entering in the fall.

At day camp you’ll try new craft projects, sing, discover the wonders of the outdoors and learn how to live with nature, play games, experiment with science, math, and technology, make new friends, make lasting memories, and for one night, your unit will remain in camp together. Day camp is a great way to build your courage, confidence, and character! Day camp is for all girls who have completed kindergarten through 7th grade. Girl Scouts from other councils, as well as non-members, are welcome to attend day camp. Girls who are no longer active in a troop or have never been members may attend camp by paying a one time fee of $30.* For girls with a chronic illness or disability, a written statement from her physician is required and must indicate the girl can participate in routine activities without harm to herself.

Our camp is not open to visitors during camp sessions so that we may provide a safe and secure environment for all participants. All participants and staff must be registered prior to camp in order to attend. Please plan to visit the camps during the open house to see the units, staff and program areas.

Older girl leadership at day camp

Girl Scouts of Central Indiana is committed to providing high-quality, affordable outdoor programming for girls. Thanks to the support of product sales and other funding to the council, we are able to keep the cost of camp sessions substantially lower than the actual cost.

Day camp aides have long been a part of the day camp experience. Day camp aides provide a variety of skills, talents, and support to younger campers while continuing to develop their leadership skills in an adult supported and supervised environment.

Car transportation

During the week, girls will also complete the Program Aide Training. Registered Girl Scouts must have completed 7th grade. Cost is $30. The fee of the training includes materials, a day camp T-shirt and patch.

Refund procedure

How may I contact my camper? May I visit or call her?

The fee for resident camp is not designed to cover the entire cost of a girl’s stay at camp. The remaining cost is covered by various funding sources that support Girl Scouts. For this reason the refund policy is as follows:

Parents and other family members may visit the camps during their designated open house. We do not accept visitors during resident camp as seeing a mom or dad may spark homesickness in many campers. Also, because telephone calls from home tend to increase the likelihood of homesickness, we ask that you refrain from calling camp. We need to keep our phone lines available for business and emergency purposes. We also ask that you do not allow your daughters to bring cell phones to camp. Parents may always call camp directors for an update on their daughter.

• Refunds are given only if cancellation is received two weeks prior to session. • $25 of fee will be retained for handling charges. The $10 deposit for PAG’s will not be refunded if we place your child in a program . • Refunds will not be given to campers who are no-shows or who leave camp early . No refunds will be made for a child leaving early regardless of the reason. We will try to place your camper in another session if she cannot attend camp due to a failed lice exam. If she cannot be placed, there will be no refund.

What health precautions are taken? Is a physical exam required? All campers attending camp this summer must have a medical history form that has been signed by their doctor, which means they need to have been seen by a doctor in the last 24 months. A resident camp health history and exam form will be included in camper’s confirmation packet.

Questions and answers Can my daughter request to go to camp with a buddy?

As part of our check-in procedures, all campers must be seen at the infirmary on opening day.

Resident camping is about camping with friends, both old and new. Girls may request to stay in the same unit with one girl in the same session. Please write the buddy’s name in the appropriate space on the application. Requests must be mutual and only one buddy will be honored. Please mail in the two forms at the same time or we might not be able to place both girls in the same session. Because making new friends is also important, only one request per girl, per unit will be honored.

We will do a head and foot check and discuss any special needs with each camper. If your daughter is on medication, her counselors will administer her medication as noted on the bottle. Campers are required to turn in all medications, both prescribed and over-the-counter, in the original containers, to the health director on opening day.

What if my daughter has special needs?

Can I take my camper out of camp to play sports? Can I pick her up early?

At camp, we make every effort to allow all girls to enjoy our camp sessions. If you have concerns about your daughter’s ability to participate in our camp, please call us before registering her for camp. For girls with a chronic illness or disability, a written statement from her physician is required and must indicate the girl can participate in routine activities without harm to herself. Routine activities include hiking at least two miles each day, showering and changing clothes by herself, and walking up and down sizeable hills possibly in the dark with a buddy. If your daughter cannot do these activities without help, we can suggest other camp opportunities that she might enjoy. Unfortunately, we cannot offer one-on-one helpers for campers.

We do appreciate all campers remaining in camp for the entire session. It is disruptive to your daughter and the other campers in her unit if you pick her up midway through her session and bring her back a day later. However, if you wish to take your camper out of camp, you will need to contact the camp director prior to or during check-in on the first day. Make sure you know what time your camper will need to be picked up and dropped off again.

Camp Sycamore Valley ďż˝ Resident camp

How often do campers swim and shower?

How can I prepare my camper?

Weather permitting, all campers have the opportunity to swim and shower every day of their session with the exception of opening and closing days.

It is important for parents to talk with their camper about what to expect at camp this summer. Be sure to emphasize the good time she will have. The American Camp Association has great resources for parents available at campparents. org.

Will my daughter need money at camp? No, she will not have the opportunity to purchase anything while at camp. Snacks are free every afternoon and she will receive her T-shirt at the end of the session.

What is camp life like? All campers are expected to participate in all-camp kapers, including making their bed, maintaining their living area, and rotating responsibilities in the dining hall. Each camper is also responsible for her own personal care and grooming. Campers will sleep either in a unit house with their counselors in a separate room nearby, or in tents with the counselors in the unit. Also, campers will earn age-level appropriate Girl Scout recognitions.

What if my daughter gets homesick? Because homesickness is common at camp, especially for first time campers, our staff members are trained to provide a caring, supportive environment for your child. Homesickness usually passes in a day or two. Your encouraging attitude both before and during camp will help prevent homesickness. Please remember that campers who overcome homesickness have met a real challenge and can feel a sense of pride in themselves. If a camper’s homesickness should persist, the parents/ guardians will be notified by the camp director. More information on homesickness will be mailed with confirmations. Campers do not have access to phones and may not bring cell phones.

What are the age restrictions for the adventurous activities? Archery

9 years old

Climbing Wall

9 years old

Zip line

10 years old

Typical day at camp

What if the weather is bad? While at camp, every counselor is in touch with the camp director who has access to a weather radio. We are aware of any storms headed our way and have procedures in place to protect our campers. Some activities may be affected by weather, and in this case refunds are not issued. Please keep in mind that there is only one phone line that does need to be kept open during inclement weather in case of emergency.

2014 CAMP GUIDE


Camp Dellwood � Day camp

Camp open house | Sunday, May 18 | 2-4 p.m. 2301 N Girls School Rd, Indianapolis, IN 46214

Day camp at Camp Dellwood …is an experience for girls from different troops and groups to meet outdoors each day. Girls attend as individual campers and are placed in units according to their grade in the fall. Please remember this is not troop camp and the entire troop will not be placed together in one unit. Attend day camp and make new friends!

Positions that are held by volunteers include directors, assistant directors, craft leaders, unit leaders, and assistant unit leaders. Won’t you please consider becoming a volunteer this summer? The camps also employ paid, seasonal personnel such as: health care supervisor, lifeguards, kitchen staff, tag-a-long unit staff, day camp aide instructors, bus monitors, and Math and Science Center staff.

At day camp you’ll try new craft projects, sing, discover the wonders of the outdoors and learn how to live with nature, play games, experiment with science, math, and technology, make new friends, make lasting memories, and for one night, your unit will remain in camp together. Bus transportation will not be offered Thursday night or Friday morning if you choose not to spend the night. Day camp is a great way to build your courage, confidence, and character!

Day camp begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. All campers will have the opportunity to spend one night (Thursday) at camp. On the overnight, girls will sleep in a tent/ cabin with other girls. Adults will have separate sleeping quarters. Only registered adults volunteering the entire 5 days are allowed to stay for the overnight. Child care before and after hours is not provided.

Day camp is for all girls in grades K-7. Girl Scouts from other councils, as well as non-members, are welcome to attend day camp. Girls regardless of their ability, may attend the session of their choice at camp. Girls who are no longer active in a troop or have never been members may attend camp by paying a one time fee of $30.* For girls with a chronic illness or disability, a written statement from her physician is required and must indicate the girl can participate in routine activities without harm to herself.

Day camp is not the same as troop camping. At day camp, you and one friend will be assigned to a unit where you can work and play together all week. Each girl should list the other’s name on their registration form to guarantee placement together. Girls and parents should agree on their camper’s buddy. Often a buddy’s name is listed, but that girl already has arranged to be buddies with someone else. Placement together will not be possible if more than one name or different names are listed. Troops are not guaranteed to be placed together. Troop members attending the same session are not guaranteed the same unit assignments. All girls are placed in a unit based on the grade they will be entering in the fall. Camp buddies should be in the same grade.

*Includes Girl Scouts of the USA membership fee. Please fill out the girl member registration form in the back of this book along with the camp registration form. There are day camp aide opportunities for girls entering grades 8 through 12. A day camp aide assists the adults in leading a unit of girls at camp. Volunteers make up most of the day camp staff.

All participants and staff must be registered prior to camp in order to attend. Please plan to visit the camps during the open house to see the units, staff and program areas.

Day camp aides have long been a part of the day camp experience. Day camp aides provide a variety of skills, talents, and support to younger campers while continuing to develop their leadership skills in an adult supported and supervised environment.

2014 CAMP GUIDE


Camp Gallahue � Resident camp

Questions and answers

cell phones to camp. Parents are always welcome to call the camp director for an update on their daughter.

Who may attend Girl Scout camp? Camp sessions are open to all girls entering grades 2-12 in the fall regardless of race, color, creed, or national origin. All girls who are registered Girl Scout members may attend. Girls who are no longer active in a troop or have never been members may attend camp by paying a one time fee of $30.* For girls with a chronic illness or disability, a written statement from her physician is required and must indicate the girl can participate in routine activities without harm to herself.

What health precautions are taken? Is a physical exam required? All campers attending camp this summer must have a medical history form that has been signed by their doctor, which means they need to have been seen by a doctor in the last 24 months. A resident camp health history and exam form will be included in the camper’s confirmation packet. As part of our check-in procedures, all campers must be seen at the infirmary on opening day. We will do a head check and discuss any special needs with each camper. If your daughter is on medication, we will administer her medication as noted on the bottle. Campers are required to turn in all medications, both prescribed and over-thecounter, in the original containers, to the health director on opening day.

*Includes Girl Scouts of the USA membership fee. Please fill out the girl member registration form in the back of this book along with the camp registration form.

Can my daughter request to go to camp with a buddy?

What if my daughter has special needs?

Resident camping is about camping with friends, both old and new. Girls may request to stay in the same unit with one girl in the same session. Please write the buddy’s name in the appropriate space on the application. Requests must be mutual and only one buddy will be honored. Please mail in the two forms at the same time or we might not be able to place both girls in the same session. Because making new friends is also important, only one request per girl, per unit will be honored.

At camp, we make every effort to allow all girls to enjoy our camp sessions. If you have concerns about your daughter’s ability to participate in our camp, please call us before registering her for camp. For girls with a chronic illness or disability, a written statement from her physician is required and must indicate the girl can participate in routine activities without harm to herself. Routine activities include hiking at least two miles each day, living in a tent with steps, showering and changing clothes by herself, and walking up and down sizeable hills possibly in the dark with a buddy. If your daughter cannot do these activities without help, we can suggest other camp opportunities that she might enjoy. Unfortunately, we cannot offer one-on-one helpers for campers.

Can I take my camper out of camp to play sports? Can I pick her up early? We do appreciate all campers remaining in camp for the entire session. It is disruptive to your daughter and the other campers in her unit if you pick her up midway through her session and bring her back a day later.

How may I contact my camper? May I visit or call her?

During the horse session, how many lessons will she have? What might she learn about horses at camp?

Parents and other family members may visit the camps during their designated open house. We do not accept visitors during resident camp as seeing a mom or dad may spark homesickness in many campers. Also, because telephone calls from home tend to increase the likelihood of homesickness, we ask that you refrain from calling camp. We need to keep our phone lines available for business and emergency purposes. We also ask that you do not allow your daughters to bring

Weather permitting, girls in Yearlings will go riding in the ring two times. They will also have two ground lessons. Campers in Hoofprints will be split into four riding groups. Each day, the groups will rotate through cleaning, tacking, and riding the horses. Each girl will have time to ride each day, not including opening day, closing day, and Sundays. Girls attending Ringmasters, and Mini Wranglers and Wranglers will also have time to ride each day. They will spend some of their time

30


at the barn learning more advanced horse care and do some trail riding. Yearlings will not leave the riding ring.

How often do campers swim and shower? Weather permitting, all campers have the opportunity to swim and shower every day of their session with the exception of opening and closing days.

Will my daughter need money at camp? No, she will not have the opportunity to purchase anything while at camp. She will receive her T-shirt at the end of the session. If, however, your daughter is in a session that will be traveling out of camp, you may send extra money along with her. We ask that your daughter does not bring an excessive amount, as her needs will be taken care of while attending camp. The money you send will be spent on anything she wants.

What if my daughter gets homesick? Because homesickness is common at camp, especially for first time campers, our staff members are trained to provide a caring, supportive environment for your child. Homesickness usually passes in a day or two. Please do not be alarmed if the first letter you receive from your daughter reflects her feeling of homesickness. It was probably written at a low time, and by the time you receive it your daughter is having a great time playing with her new friends. Your encouraging attitude both before and during camp will help prevent homesickness. Please remember that campers who overcome homesickness have met a real challenge and can feel a sense of pride in themselves. If a camper’s homesickness should persist, the parents/ guardians will be notified by the camp director. More information on homesickness will be mailed with confirmations. Campers do not have access to phones and may not bring cell phones.

What grade does my daughter need to be in to attend camp sessions at camp? The grades listed for each session are the grades that your daughters should be going into in the fall. All campers must be entering second grade or higher to attend resident camp this summer.

How can I prepare my camper? It is important for parents to talk with their camper about what to expect at camp this summer. Be sure to emphasize the good time she will have. The American Camp Association has great resources for parents available at campparents.org.

What is camp life like? All campers are expected to participate in all-camp kapers, including making their bed, maintaining their living area, and rotating responsibilities in the dining hall. Each camper is also responsible for her own personal care and grooming. Campers will sleep either in a unit house with their counselors in a separate room nearby, or in platform tents with the counselors in their own tent in the unit. Campers are given a voice in planning all activities, which could include art projects, swimming, cookouts, and campfire activities. Also, campers will earn age-level appropriate Girl Scout recognitions.

What if the weather is bad? While at camp, every counselor is in touch with the camp director who has access to a weather radio. We are aware of any storms headed our way and have procedures in place to protect our campers. Some activities may be affected by weather, and in this case refunds are not issued. Please keep in mind that there is only one phone line that does need to be kept open during inclement weather in case of emergency.
