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 Girls who are no longer active in a troop or have never been members may attend camp by paying a one time fee of $30.* For girls with a chronic illness or disability, a written statement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.

Older girl leadership at day camp

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.

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.

Meals

If you want to be a day camp aide this summer, here’s what you need to do: Attend a day camp Aide-in-Training week at Camp Dellwood (for new day camp aides).

Lunches and snacks for each day will be provided. Thursday dinner, evening snack, and Friday breakfast are provided for those staying overnight. To ensure camper safety, food allergies and/ or special diets cannot be accommodated. No discount can be provided if a camper does not eat the camp meals or snacks.

This training is designed to reinforce basic skills and to give a foundation for leading and working with younger girls in the outdoors. During the week the 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.

No price adjustment will be given if a girl chooses not to participate in the overnight.

Interested parents and adults are invited to register. Each adult volunteer can send one girl to camp for free!

Staff training All day camp volunteers must attend the pre-camp meeting for the session(s) they are assigned to. At this meeting, volunteers will receive a day camp volunteer staff manual; receive unit assignments, unit lists, and unit schedules; learn about the specifics of the session; meet the people they will be volunteering with; and work with others to develop activities for their unit.

Volunteer selection The Camping Services Department in consultation with the day camp directors approve all registrations.

To apply, submit the Program Assistance Grant application with your camp registration form and health history form. A $10 deposit per girl is required. This deposit is not refundable unless your child cannot be placed into a session. Use a separate grant application per girl. Please do not mail in your PAG without your camp registration form.
