Meet the new CEO Girl Scouts of Central Indiana’s board of directors is pleased to announce that Danielle Shockey, a Girl Scout alumna, will become our chief executive officer beginning January 1, 2018. Shockey’s experience serving Indiana’s youth spans a career of 20 years.

“As a former Girl Scout, I am a product of the power that exists in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience,” said Danielle. “It has been a long time since I proudly wore my uniform, stood beside my friends, and held up my three fingers and recited the Girl Scout Promise. The valuable life lessons learned by me and millions of other young women is the reason why I am thrilled to serve as the chief executive officer of Girl Scouts of Central Indiana.” Most recently, Danielle served Hoosier youth through her leadership role as the sole deputy superintendent of public instruction for the Indiana Department of Education. In that role, she was at the forefront of Indiana K-12 education, supporting the creation of an education system of equity and high-quality for more than 1 million students. “The legacy that has been created by Deborah Hearn Smith for Girl Scouts of Central Indiana is one that I am humbled to follow,” said Danielle. “Over the last 20 years, I have been fortunate to have served millions of young people from all across Indiana, and I know first-hand, that now more than ever, girls need an organization, a place to call their own, that is dedicated to the unique needs of girls, aligned with their passions, and provides them with skills that will last a lifetime.” Danielle’s experience at the Department of Education included leading the vision and operations of 22 distinctly different divisions such as College and Career Readiness, STEM, Career and Technical Education, special education, eLearning, federal grants, educator effectiveness, and school safety. “We are delighted to welcome Danielle back home as a Girl Scout alumna,” said Diana Sullivan, Girl Scouts of Central Indiana’s board chair. “Our board of directors is confident that she will build on the legacy left by retiring CEO Deborah Hearn Smith, and help our girls reach even greater heights as tomorrow leaders.” Danielle also has experience as a college dean, school principal and educator. She has a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Ball State University and a Master of Science in Educational Leadership from Indiana University.

Early Bird


Every box of cookies is packed with a lifetime supply of learning. Much more than a way to raise money, the Girl Scout Cookie Program is a hands-on leadership and entrepreneurial program. Here are a few examples of how participating in the cookie program teaches Girl Scouts skills that will help them grow into leaders in their own lives, leaders in business, and leaders in the world: 1

Goal Setting

5 Skills

Girl Scout Cookie Program goal setting decision making money management people skills business ethics

Your Girl Scout sets cookie sales goals individually and with her troop, creates a plan to reach them, and develops cooperation and team building skills all along the way! 2

Decision-Making

Your Girl Scout helps decide how her troop will spend their cookie money, furthering her critical thinking and problem solving skills that will help her in many aspects of her life. 3

Money Management

Your Girl Scout takes cookie orders, handles customers’ money and gains valuable and practical life skills around financial literacy. 4 People Skills Your Girl Scout learns how to talk to, listen to and work with all kinds of people while selling cookies. These experiences help her develop healthy relationship, and conflict resolution skills she can use throughout her life.

Digital Cookie is back! Watch for your participation email in late December! More information available at online training and at girlscoutsindiana.org

5 Business Ethics Your Girl Scout is honest and responsible at every step of the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Her business ethics reinforce the positive values she is developing as a Girl Scout.

There is more to Girl Scout Cookies than what's in the box. girlscoutsindiana.org

Program activity descriptions

How to use this guide Through Girl Scouting, you can do anything! The activities in this guide are designed to help you try new things. Use theses tips and tricks to help you and your troop plan for a year of fun and adventure.

1

Look through the guide on your own, selecting program activities that interest you.

2

Create your plan for the year on your own and with your troop.

You don’t have to attend all program events with your troop. Many of the events are perfect for you to attend on your own. Highlight or sticky note activities you are interested in, and share these opportunities with your parents or caregivers.

You can also find out more about special Girl Scout dates, program ideas and receive additional support by following us on social media.

@girlscoutsIN Join the conversation! @girlscoutsIN

3

Discuss which Girl Scout Journeys and badges you and your troop are interested in earning.

If you are a Girl Scout in grade 5 or above, you may want to create a longer term plan to help you earn higher awards. Use the Ladder of Leadership on page 6, along with your Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting to help you make decisions.

4

Look for program activities that compliment your troop's plan.

If you see a badge icon-like this one-in an activity description, you will earn a badge in this activity. If you don’t see one, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make a connection yourself, and use the skills you learn towards a badge.

5

Create a budget for the year that matches your troop's plan.

Check out pages 11-13 for more information on the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Be a #cookieboss, and use the money you earn to pay for all that you do in Girl Scouting: from fun program activities to paying for your annual membership.

6

Register for fun program activities!

For council-sponsored events, check out page 15 for registration procedures. For community sponsored events, see the event description for details. Register quickly to reserve your spot!

7

Attend the activities you and your troop register for and debrief afterwards.

As a troop or on your own, reflect on your experience, and use your observations to make decisions about future events. Share your photos with us on social media-we love seeing you and your troop participating in fun adventures!

Program activities by level

Program activities by level What Daisies Do • Grades: K-1 Don’t we all wish we could look at the world through a Girl Scout Daisy’s eyes? Everything they do—from planting a garden to putting on a skit to proudly adding that first petal to their vest—sparkles with that "first time ever" newness! Along the way, they’ll use their Daisy exuberance to help others—and they’ll never forget how that feels. Every Daisy meeting is an adventure filled with giggles, energy and excitement.

What Brownies Do • Grades: 2-3 Girl Scout Brownies are ready to take on the world! They want to learn new things and show off what they know. They want to explore the world and meet new people. They get to do all these things and more in Girl Scouts: take that first hike in the great outdoors, visit a science museum, band together as a mighty Brownie team to sell cookies—and use some of the money to help others. Life is good when you’re a Brownie!

What Juniors Do • Grades: 4-5 Want to meet a real-life superhero? Just talk to a Girl Scout Junior who wakes up every day ready to play a new role. They are explorers when they go camping for the first time. They're CEOs when they market and sell cookies. They're scientists when they do energy audits and go on nature walks. And they're product designers and writers when they earn their Innovation and Storytelling badges. Not to mention change makers, big-idea thinkers, and future leaders. Superhero, indeed!

What Cadettes Do • Grades: 6-8 Making true-blue friends, saving the planet, standing up against stereotypes, using their team power for the greater good—that’s what being a Girl Scout Cadette is all about. They blaze new trails in the wilderness, write and direct their own movies, take the stage for public speaking, make delicious meals from around the world, and pick up tools to do some woodworking. Their curiosity and imagination lead the way as they try all kinds of new experiences.


What Seniors Do Grades: 9-10

What Ambassadors Do Grades: 11-12

Girl Scout Seniors are ready to take the world by storm— and Girl Scouts will give them millions of ways to do it. Whether it’s enhancing school-based activities or helping girls make the most of community involvement, the opportunities open to Girl Scout Seniors are virtually unlimited! They are eager to spread their wings—and Girl Scouts helps them take flight.

With a wider world comes even more opportunities— and Girl Scout Ambassadors make the most of every chance they get to improve themselves and their world. But whatever path she chooses, they take action to make a lasting positive impact on their school, their community, their world—and themselves. Their future is bright—and Girl Scout Ambassadors are ready to shine!

Safety and Girl Scouts Every adult in Girl Scouting is responsible for the physical and emotional safety of girls. This is demonstrated by following the 12 Girl Scout Safety Guidelines on the next page at all times and by following the Girl Scout Safety Activity Checkpoints guidelines when engaging in activities with girls. These resources can be found on our website.

Safety Activity Checkpoints Safety Activity Checkpoints are in-depth safety guidelines for you to use for Girl Scout activities, ranging from canoeing to surfing to selling cookies. Girls can also use these checkpoints to ready their group for a girl-led activity. When preparing for any activity with girls, always begin with the Safety Activity Checkpoints written specifically for that particular activity. Each Safety Activity Checkpoint offers information such as where to do the activity, how to include girls with disabilities, where to find basic and specialized gear required for the activity, how to prepare yourselves in advance, and what specific steps to follow on the day of the activity. If Safety Activity Checkpoints do not exist for an activity, check with our Program Department, as some activities are allowed only with written council pre-approval, only for girls ages 12 and over, and some activities are off-limits completely. Safety Activity Checkpoints can be found at girlscoutsindiana.org.

Did you know Girl Scouts of Central Indiana is no longer coordinating lifeguards and archery facilitators for any camp. We strongly encourage all service units to have individuals certified in archery, lifeguarding and small craft. See dates and locations under outdoor activities.

Safety guidelines 1. Follow the Safety Activity Checkpoints. Instructions for staying safe while participating in activities are detailed in the Safety Activity Checkpoints, available on our website and within your Volunteer Toolkit. Read the checkpoints, follow them, and share them with other volunteers, parents and girls before engaging in activities with girls. 2. Points common to all Safety Activity Checkpoints include: Girls plan the activity. Keeping their grade-level abilities in mind, encourage girls to take proactive leadership roles in organizing details of the activity. Arrange for proper adult supervision of girls. Your group must have at least two unrelated, approved adult volunteers present at all times, plus additional adult volunteers as necessary (this is dependent upon the size of the group and the ages and abilities of girls). Adult volunteers must be at least 18 years old, and must be screened by Girl Scouts of Central Indiana before volunteering. One lead volunteer must be female. Get parent/guardian permission. When an activity takes place that is outside the normal time and place, advise each parent/guardian of the details of the activity and obtain permission for girls to participate. Communicate with council and parents. Follow council procedures for activity approval, certificates of insurance, and council guidelines about girls’ general health examinations. Make arrangements in advance for all transportation and confirm plans before departure. Be prepared for emergencies and compile key contacts. Work with girls and other adult volunteers to establish and practice procedures for emergencies related to weather, fire, lost girls/adults and site security. Give an itinerary to a contact person at home; call the contact person upon departure and return. Create a list of girls’ parents/guardian contact information, telephone numbers for emergency services and police, and council contacts—keep on hand or post in an easily accessible location. Always keep handy a well-stocked first-aid kit, girl health histories and contact information for girls’ families. Ensure an adult certified in First Aid/CPR attends all troop activities. Get a weather report. On the morning of the activity, check weather.com or other reliable weather sources to determine if conditions are appropriate. If severe weather conditions prevent the activity, be prepared with a backup plan or alternate activity, and/or postpone the activity. Write, review, and practice evacuation and emergency plans for severe weather with girls. In the event of a storm, take shelter away from tall objects (including trees, buildings, and electrical poles). Find the lowest point in an open flat area. Squat low to the ground on the balls of the feet, and place hands on knees with head between them. Use the buddy system. Using the buddy system, girls are divided into teams of two. Each girl is responsible for staying with her buddy at all times, warning her buddy of danger, giving her buddy immediate assistance if safe to do so, and seeking help when the situation warrants it. Girls are encouraged to stay near the group or buddy with another team of two, so in the event someone is injured, one person cares for the patient while two others seek help. 3. Report abuse. Sexual advances, improper touching and sexual activity of any kind with girl members, as well as physical, verbal and emotional abuse of girls is strictly forbidden. Report any suspected abuse or neglect to the Indiana Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline – 800.800.5556 and contact the Director of Program or the Director of Volunteer Services at 317.924.6800 to alert the council that a report has been filed. Under Indiana law, each citizen of Indiana is considered a “mandated reporter” and state law requires the department of Child Services to protect the identity of the reporter. 4. Travel safely. When transporting girls to planned Girl Scout field trips and other activities that are outside the normal time and place, every driver must be an approved adult volunteer, age 21 or over and have a good driving record, a valid license and a registered/insured vehicle. Insist that everyone is in a legal seat and wears her seat belt at all times, and adhere to state laws regarding booster seats and requirements for children in rear seats. See Transporting Girls on page 5. Ensure safe overnight outings. Prepare girls to be away from home by involving them in planning, so they know what to expect. Avoid having men sleep in the same space as girls and women. During family or parent-daughter overnights, one family unit may sleep in the same sleeping quarters in program areas. When parents are staffing events, daughters should remain in quarters with other girls rather than in staff areas. 6. Role-model the right behavior. Never use illegal drugs. Don’t consume alcohol, smoke, or use foul language in the presence of girls. Do not carry ammunition or firearms in the presence of girls, unless given special permission by Girl Scouts of Central Indiana for marksmanship activities. Role model positive communication with both girls and adultsin person, writing and social media. 7. Create an emotionally safe space. Volunteers are responsible for making Girl Scouting a place where girls are as safe emotionally as they are physically. Protect the emotional safety of girls by creating a team agreement


and coaching girls to honor it. Agreements typically encourage behaviors like respecting a diversity of feelings and opinions; resolving conflicts constructively; and avoiding physical and verbal bullying, clique behavior and discrimination. 8. Ensure that no girl is treated differently. Girl Scouts welcomes all members, regardless of race, ethnicity, background, disability, family structure, religious beliefs and socioeconomic status. When scheduling, planning and carrying out activities, carefully consider the needs of all girls involved, including school schedules, family needs, financial constraints, religious holidays and the accessibility of appropriate transportation and meeting places. 9. Promote online safety. Instruct girls never to put their full names or contact information online, engage in virtual conversation with strangers, or arrange in-person meetings with online contacts. On group websites, publish girls’ first names only and never divulge their contact information. Teach girls the Girl Scout Internet Safety Pledge and have them commit to it. 10. Keep girls safe during money-earning activities. Girl Scout cookies and other council-sponsored product sales are an integral part of the program. During Girl Scout product sales, you are responsible for the safety of girls, money and products. In addition, a wide variety of organizations, causes and fundraisers may appeal to Girl Scouts to be their labor force. When representing Girl Scouts, girls cannot participate in money-earning activities that represent partisan politics or are not Girl Scout–approved product sales and efforts.

Girl Scouts of the USA recognition awarded at the service unit level A nomination form is completed and submitted to the service team recognition coordinator or to Volunteer Services by March 1. Nominations are reviewed by the service team recognition committee who approves or denies the nomination. The service team submits a list of recipients to volunteer services by April 1. Volunteer of Excellence This award recognizes volunteers who have contributed outstanding service while partnering directly with girls in any pathway to implement the Girl Scout Leadership Experience through use of the National Program Portfolio or who have contributed outstanding service in support of the council’s mission delivery to girl and adult members.

Tools and tips for writing successful nominations Nomination guidelines The nomination should be results oriented, measurable and include real impact stories. GSUSA has designed the guidelines and provided examples on how to write nominations that demonstrate measurable impact. It does not need to be difficult; some simple numbers will do. Some basic questions to ask and answer as nominations are written include How many? What? How? Who? Keep in mind the 3 keys to leadership: Discover, Connect, and Take Action.

from their service? What skills have they developed? What have they learned? • “She ensures that the girls in her troop have a balanced experience in Girl Scouting.” What makes it balanced? What kind of experiences? What new skills have the girls learned?

Helpful definitions Mission Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Vision Girl Scouts strives to be the premier leadership organization for girls and experts on their growth and development. Goals Each local council sets their own goals based on national goals, initiatives, and direction. Each service unit within Girl Scouts of Central Indiana has annual membership girl recruitment goals which are communicated to the service unit manager and/or service team through the membership development manager assigned to the service unit. In addition, the service unit manager and/or service team is responsible for setting other additional goals, for example, planning a specific number of events and activities to recruit a specific number of girls. The membership development manager and/or service unit manager can help you find out the goals. Mission delivery Thriving mission delivery grows and sustains membership through volunteer delivery of the GSLE using the national portfolio. The Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE)

• "She has retained girls in her troop.” How many girls has she retained?

The three keys to leadership: girls discover themselves and their values; connect with others; and take action to make the world a better place. At Girl Scouts, everything centers around the girl: activities are girl-led, which gives girls the opportunity to learn by doing in a cooperative learning environment.

• “Her troop participates in service unit events.” What events specifically? How many events?

The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting

Here are some examples: • “Brittany has been a leader for several years.” How many years? What kind of leadership qualities does she bring?

• “The troop has done many community service projects.” How many projects? What are they? Who have they served? Who benefitted? What need have they met? • “The girls in the troop have benefited from their community service.” How have girls benefited

Girls at every grade-level have a Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting. Through fun activities, girls can earn a variety of badges to build the skills and gain the confidence they’ll use to change the world. They can even develop and complete activities to make their own badge.


National Leadership Program through Journeys

Need some support writing nominations?

At the core of the GSLE are national leadership Journeys, fun and challenging experiences grouped around a theme and spread over a series of sessions. Each Journey has all the important components of the GSLE sewn right in. Journeys ensure that every Girl Scout receives a consistent, high-quality experience that engages girls in realizing leadership potential.

We want to ensure the success your adult recognition nomination. If you need help or have questions contact:

Skill building badge sets The skill-building badge activity sets offer girls the opportunity to earn additional badges throughout their Leadership Journeys. Activities are designed to turn the experiences and inspiration of the Journeys into tangible skills that girls can use throughout their lives. Pathways Pathways are the flexible ways girls and adults can participate in Girl Scouting such as troop, camp, events, series, travel, and virtual.

Why do you volunteer?

President’s Volunteer Service Award

"Girl Scouts gave the girls in my troop the opportunity to try new things in a safe environment. Even though some of the girls may have been a little afraid the first time we slept in a tent or went horseback riding, they worked through those fears, and they were so proud of themselves for completing something they thought they might not be able to do.

The President’s Volunteer Service Award is part of the Points of Light and is a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service. As an affiliate of GSUSA your local troop or service unit can register to be a Certifying Organization. Go to presidentialserviceawards.gov to learn more about these awards and how to become a Certifying Organization. Use GSU003 as your ID when registering.

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 scholarships provide this life-changing experience for girls who may not otherwise be able to participate because of their economic circumstances. Contributions to camp scholarships 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, camp scholarships help underwrite the cost of camp activities, 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. $1,000 = One week of resident camp for four girls $500 = One week of day camp for five girls $260 = One week of resident camp for one girl $100 = One week of day camp for one girl Donations can be made at girlscoutsindiana.org or complete the form below and mail to: Girl Scouts of Central Indiana, 7201 Girl Scout Lane, Indianapolis, IN 46214

What if the weather is bad?

How to register

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. How can I prepare my camper? It is important for parents to talk with their camper about what to expect at camp this summer. The American Camp Association has great resources for parents available at www.campparents.org. Can my daughter request to go to camp with a buddy? Summer camp 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.

Girls who are not current Girl Scouts will pay a fee of $35 per summer, which includes the Girl Scouts of the USA membership fee. This will allow girls to attend summer camp, as well as participate in Girl Scout Program activities, such as the ones in this program guide, all year long. Adeventure awaits!

Please fill out the camp registration form. Camp fees 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. Listed below are brief descriptions of each type of summer opportunity, along with answers to some frequently asked questions. If you have additional questions, or need more information after reading through the camp brochure, please contact Camping Services at 317.924.6827 or mmontgomery@girlscoutsindiana.org.

Day camp Day camp is for all girls entering grades 1-7, and is a day-only experience for you to meet girls, just like you, who are excited and ready for adventure! Explore the outdoors with new friends for several days in the summer. Some camp activities will allow you to explore the great outdoors, and you will get to learn outdoor skills and about nature. Other experiences will happen indoors, and you will get to learn science or technology skills on a college campus. There are many experiences availalble, and there is something for everyone! Some day camps offer bus transportation, and some do not. Some are week long experiences, and some are only a few days. Attend camp as an individual camper, and you will be placed in a unit according to your grade in the fall. Please remember this is not a troop activity and the entire troop will not be placed together in one unit. You can, however, request ONE friend as a camp buddy. This is your chance to make new friends! This is a perfect first camping experience if you have never spent a week away from home before, as you will be able to go home in the evenings. Several of the day camps offer an overnight option one night for girls to experience overnight camp with their unit. At day camp, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll try new craft projects, discover the wonders of the outdoors, explore nature, play games, experiment with science, math, and technology, make new friends and make lasting memories. Your unit will get to spend one night laughing, singing and in camp together. If you take a bus to camp, 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 • Questions and answers What do I wear to day camp? Old clothes are best and should include shorts or long pants, T-shirts or tank tops (no halters or midriffs), socks/shoes (closed-toe and no sandals), jacket or sweatshirt, raincoat or poncho if wet conditions are predicted.

Is there anything my camper can't have with her at day camp? We do not allow any of the following so that girls are safe and they gain the full benefit of the camp experience: •

Electronic devices (including cell phones, tablets, electronic games and music playing devices)

Weapons, alcohol or tobacco products

Drugs (prescription and over-the-counter drugs must be turned in to the camp health supervisor)

What do I bring to day camp each day? Bring these items daily to camp in a backpack or similar type of bag. Mark the bag with camper’s name, unit name, and bus stop name or “car rider.” •

Hat or bandana

Swimsuit and towel

Closed-toe-shoes

An extra pair of closed-toe-shoes (that you don't mind getting wet)

A plastic grocery bag for wet clothes and shoes

Raincoat or rain poncho (if weather warrants it)

A water bottle (bottles with a screw on lid are best; no bottles with straws)

Sunscreen and insect repellent (non-aerosol)

Camper name (first and last name), unit name

Lunch for Monday-Wednesday Sycamore Valley and Na Wa Kwa Day Camp only

Light-weight sleeping bag or bedroll (blankets)

Day pack items (carry daily)

Extra trash bag (labeled) for return trip home-many bags tear and a replacement is necessary

If my camper has a game/event, can I pick her up and return her at any time? We do appreciate all campers remaining at camp for the entire day. It is disruptive to your camper and the other campers in her unit to pick girls up midway through the day and bring girls back. If it is critical 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. Your camper will not be able to return to camp until 8:30 a.m. the next day. Please provide a note with the day, time, reason, and who will be picking up to the camp director on that day.

What do I bring if I am staying overnight on Thursday? Some campers will be in tents, and others will be in cabins, depending on the camp and the age of the girl. Bring these items to camp in a duffle bag or similar type bag on Thursday. Place all items in a trash or water-resistant bag that the camper can carry. Please label all bags with the following information (duct tape and a permanent marker works best):

Campus camps

Family or troop camp

These are either day or overnight experiences at a college or academy campus. Girls will engage in hands-on learning of skills such as coding, fashion design with electronics, or construction. Or girls may choose to explore leadership and get started on their Girl Scout Silver or Gold Awards at Journey University. No matter the camp a girl chooses, she will experience campus life, engage with professors and college students, and get to explore new ideas and challenges.

This is an overnight experience for the entire family, just one parent or favorite adult, or the entire troop. Specialty staff provide activities such as swimming, archery, crafts, nature, campfires, and other activities as noted in the program description. You can have your meals provided, or you can choose a program where you cook all your meals. Whichever program you choose, girls and their families or troops will get to have planned programming as well as free time to explore camp, work on badges, or hang out and enjoy the outdoors. See page 30 for Camp Na Wa Kwa and page 50 for Gallahue, for more information on Family Camp.

Camp info • Resident camp

Resident camp Are you ready for summer camp? Get ready for a summer you will never forget. Resident camp is an experience filled with excitement, exploration, laughter, and friendship. For more information about the many different resident camp experiences we offer, visit girlscoutsindiana.org. Resident camp is an overnight experience where you will get to stay in a tent, cabin, lodge, or even a college campus for two nights or up to two weeks. Attend with a friend, camp buddy, or by yourself. You will make new friends with lots of girls from across our 45 counties. Troops and/ or groups can sign up as individual campers and will be placed in units according to your desired session. You and your counselors will plan activities together, taking advantage of the unique opportunities available at each camp. Summer camp staff are chosen carefully for their ability to work with girls and teach specific skills. All staff undergo a stringent interview and reference check, and must pass a background check. Camp staff also spend a week–or longer–learning the specific skills, safety, and procedures required by Girl Scouts. If you have not spent the night away from home very often, you may want to try a shorter period of time for your first resident camp experience. If you are very outgoing or adventurous, regardless of your age, you may want to just jump right in with a full-week experience! Girls must bring their health form to camp on the first day of camp. Do not mail it or fill it out online.

Are you ready for camp? Take the quiz on pages 14-15 to see if you and your parents are ready for camp.

Resident camp questions and answers 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. How may I contact my camper? May I visit or call her? 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 parent/ caregiver 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 a cell phone to camp. Parents are always welcome to call the camp director for an update on their daughter. What health precautions are taken? Is a physical exam required? 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.


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. If your daughter is on medication, we will administer her medication as noted on the bottle. What if my daughter has special needs? At camp, we make every effort to allow all girls to enjoy our camp sessions. If you have concerns about your daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 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.

Please do not be alarmed if the first letter you receive from your daughter reflects her feelings 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 camperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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.

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 may 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.

Meet Deb Thomas This is my second year as the camp director at Sycamore Valley and I can’t wait to spend it with you! I literally grew up at a summer camp (my mom was a camp nurse), and I have been camping my entire life. I was a Girl Scout troop leader for 7 years and my two daughters are often at camp with me. I go camping with my son’s troop as well. We are a camping family! One of my favorite parts of camp is watching girls grow in confidence and independence as they learn, grow, and make friends. Whether it’s your daughter’s first time at camp or she’s a pro, my goal is for her to have a great time learning new skills and having a different experience each week. See you at camp!


Day camp at Sycamore Valley ... is an experience for girls from different troops and groups to meet outdoors each day, and have outdoor fun! Fun and exploration are on the agenda every day as girls swim, sing, make crafts, play games, and more. Girls attend as individual campers and are placed in units according to their grade in the fall. Please note: This is not troop camp and an entire troop is not guaranteed to be placed together in one unit.

Meet Barb Nichols, or BC Camp director, Camp Gallahue This will be my tenth summer as the director at Camp Gallahue! I love being at camp and riding the horses and hanging out at the lake! Being with girls at camp means so much to me. I enjoy getting to know campers and their amazing families! I love cooking over the campfire, and my favorite dessert is banana boats! "Many girls come to overnight camp because they want to have fun, but they leave with so much more! Your daughter will come home with new friends, bolstered confidence, leadership and outdoor skills, and a lifetime of memories that you made possible - all by giving her the gift of camp. Find her summer adventure today!"

Camp Gallahue

Camp Gallahue Units Camp Gallahue has 7 different units that your daughter might stay in. Each unit has a different theme to it. We try to stay in the unit posted in the camp guide, but sometimes due to weather or if a unit isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t full, we will move the girls to a different unit. You will be told at check in if there is a change in the unit. For example if we know it will be a rainy week, we try to not have girls stay in the valley and will put them in a platform tent unit.

Ardath / Village / Art Colony / Reservation These are our platform tent units. Each unit has ten tents a unit house and a latrine. The unit house has electricity and is used for activities at night, rainy weather, and the girls will sleep inside if there is inclement weather at night. Ardath is our water unit because it sits right on the lake. Village is near the central part of camp and a great unit to move out of Hill Crest. Art Colony is used for older girls and more themed units. Reservation is for our horse units because it is so close to the barns.

Harley's Hill

Harleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hill is our most primitive unit. It has Adirondack style platform units to sleep in. It is a favorite of the girls to stay in!

For our oldest girls who are in special units, we stay in the valley in pup tents. The girls love the independence and outdoor experience of the valley.

Hill Crest Hill Crest is the unit for girls in 2nd thru 5th grades. It has 3 sleeping wings with electricity indoor toilets, and showers. The counselorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sleep in a separate room in each wing.
