The Power of Possibilities Dear GSGLA Girl Scouts and Girl Scout Families: I love Girl Scout camp—and it’s not just because of the memories I have as a girl doing things like learning to build a campfire and earning my Outdoor Cooking badge at our very own Camp Osito Rancho. I love Girl Scout camp, because its effects last far longer than the week- or weekend-long sessions themselves. Camp lingers in profound ways. Tackling our ropes course at camps Osito and Lakota inspires girls to face other fears with confidence. Working hard to hit that bullseye in archery at El Ranchito helps girls overcome setbacks while working toward goals. Running for “camp mayor” at Mariposa moves girls to speak up and advocate for their ideas. Building DIY water filters at Marine Landing sparks a new passion for STEAM. Identifying native plants on a hike at La Casita motivates girls to protect our environment. The list goes on…

Dont forget: We have Outdoor badges and requirements, too. The newest badges are Trail Adventure and Snow or Climbing Adventure.

Girl Scout camp gives girls the power to choose their own paths. It's a safe, inclusive space in which girls can discover something new every time—something beyond the screen of a cell phone, laptop, or tablet. They discover themselves and the world around them. I feel fortunate to be joining GSGLA at a time when girls are presented with such a robust list of camp offerings. I’m particularly excited for the girls who will attend our newly reopened Camp Lakota! Girls Bucket Hat $28

LED Camp Lantern $25

7 pc Table Mess Kit $25

Water-Resistant First Aid Kit $7.50

I can’t wait to see which camp experience you choose—and to see who you will become because of your experiences there. Yours in Girl Scouting,

GIVE THE GIFT OF GIRL SCOUT CAMP

HOW THE CAMP EXPERIENCE TRANSFORMS GIRLS SOCIAL SKILLS DEVELOPMENT • Leadership • Communication • Participation

SELF-RESPECT AND CHARACTER BUILDING • Responsibility

We know you have many choices to make when it comes to how your Girl Scout spends her summer. We are glad you are considering gifting her time in the outdoors. Beyond making new friends and participating in fun outdoor activities, your Girl Scout will gain life skills that build her confidence and grow her desire to try new things. In our unique all-girl environment, our outdoor experiences turn into lessons in leadership and healthy risk taking. Girl Scouts are more likely to develop healthy relationships as well as an appreciation of nature and the world around them, specifically because of the time they spend with their peers—unplugged and outside. So get your Girl Scout outdoors this summer and watch her blossom!

OVERNIGHT CAMP

Overnight camp, also known as resident or sleep-away camp, is the quintessential summer camp experience!

ALL ABOUT OVERNIGHT CAMP! EARLY BIRD SPECIAL! Register for any traditional overnight camp at Osito Jan. 20 through Feb. 20, 2020 and save $25! Visit girlscoutsla.org/summercamp to get started.

At GSGLA’s overnight camps, girls get the opportunity to sleep away from home and experience the joy of making new friends and (re)discovering the wonder of the great outdoors—all while launching their independence. Campers can choose from a number of sessions at our beautiful mountain camps, where they’ll learn to step outside of their comfort zone and be rewarded with newfound confidence. It’s a tale of two camps! Camp Lakota is re-opening summer camp sessions for the first time in over a decade, and Camp Osito Rancho has doubled its camp offerings for the new summer camp season! Campers can soar on zip lines, find their balance on ropes courses, and take aim at archery—and that’s just the beginning! At Lakota, all ages—including Daisies— can enjoy overnight troop camping; older girls can enjoy an awesome backpacking adventure. Meanwhile, Osito is offering up daily adventures at Big Bear Lake and a discount for early registration! Take advantage of sessions at both camps!

Fun Fact: I am a yoga instructor. Favorite Camp Memory: Our campfires! I love seeing all of the staff and campers dressed up creating their own camp memories!

Please see full camp descriptions for Osito beginning on p. 8 and for Lakota beginning on p. 14

DID YOU KNOW?! Bunking has benefits! Overnight camp is one of the best ways kids learn independence, new skills ... and how to appreciate parents!

OVERNIGHT CAMP This picturesque camp is nestled in the San Bernardino Mountains at 7,500 feet with views of Big Bear Lake and surrounded by tall pines, boulders, and our very own Merriman Meadow.

WEEKLY THEMED PROGRAMS Each program option will be offered during each weekly session of camp. All campers, in addition to their chosen program theme, will enjoy archery, swimming, low ropes, high ropes (for fourth grade and above), and zip line.

GLOW G.I.R.L.

OSITO RANCHO OVERNIGHT CAMP @CampOsitoRancho

Star light, star bright—which activities will you enjoy at Osito tonight? Explore camp by glow stick, flashlight, and moonlight as you swim, climb, and hike even after the sun goes down. After sleeping in, you will also enjoy plenty of activities while the sun is out.

H2OSITO Pack your swimsuits and goggles for a splash-filled week at camp! Canoe on the pond, play water games in and out of the pool, and enjoy popsicles and other summer favorites. Back on land, you will dive into your favorite camp activities.

O

sito Rancho, our overnight camp located in beautiful Big Bear Lake, offers campers a summer of adventure like no other! With high- and low-ropes challenge courses, a climbing wall and natural rock wall, twin and high zip lines*, gaga pit (a friendly version of dodgeball), archery range, swimming pool, and pond—the options are limitless! Our variety of housing facilities—including cabins with electricity, rustic cabins, and platform tents—help to make each program unique! If you are a camper entering grades 2–8 and looking for more time in the water, more adventures on our challenge course, more time exploring at night, or more time with horses, Osito is the place to be this summer! When you select a program theme, you’ll spend half of the day Mondays–Thursdays enjoying those activities (weather-permitting).

Campers entering grades 9–12 may opt to participate in our popular three-week Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program as well as our new one-week Older Girl Experience (OGE). The OGE combines the fun of taking camp on the road during daily trips to Big Bear Lake and hiking all the beautiful trails that Osito Rancho has to offer. Camp Osito Rancho is proud to be accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA). Every 3–5 years, the camp goes through an accreditation process with onsite visits to evaluate and verify compliance with a set of national standards established by professionals in the camping industry. This is an action we take voluntarily. The standards establish guidelines for needed policies, procedures, and practices in the administration of key aspects for camp safety management. *Our zip lines have a weight and age limitation. In order to provide the safest and best experience for girls, our twin zip line participants must be entering second grade and above and our high zip line participants must be entering eighth grade and above. All participants must weigh 80–250 lbs.

MISSION COMPLETION! Your mission: Spend a high-adventure week up in the trees! Your challenge: Fly through the air on our twin zip line, race to the top of the climbing wall, and master the high-ropes course. Experience a true taste of adventure and collect a treasure trove of amazing camp stories to share upon your mission completion!

Psst… Here’s more on Mission Completion! • We’ll work toward The North Face Climbing Adventure badges! (Session-specific trail activities tailored to each grade level.) • Grades 6–8 can climb our natural rock wall.

OLDER GIRL EXPERIENCE (OGE): WHAT’SUP SUP OSITO Don’t miss the only camp program with trips out of camp designed specifically for our high school-aged campers! Spend time Monday through Thursday kayaking, boating, and stand-up paddle boarding on Big Bear Lake. Then, lace up your hiking boots and explore some of our newly discovered camp trails.

SADDLE UP** Calling all horse lovers! Saddle up for a week of horsecentered fun! Spend your mornings or afternoons learning horsemanship, riding on exciting trails, and helping to care for our resident horses. You’ll leave camp with an even greater appreciation of our equine friends!

COUNSELOR-IN-TRAINING I (CIT I) Discover, connect, and take action as you spend three weeks at camp building your leadership skills! Grow your confidence through team-building, self-discovery, and creating activities that leave a lasting impact with campers. Plus, spend time participating in your favorite camp activities!

COUNSELOR-IN-TRAINING II (CIT II) For CITs who have completed two years of CIT I, this threeweek session will focus on a specific program area as you continue to grow your leadership skills. Help create, design, and lead activities in your chosen area of interest.

• Grades 2–3 will spend extra time on a team challenge course (in lieu of the high-ropes course).

**Girls who have registered for our Saddle Up sessions are guaranteed time with the horses daily. Based on time and weather, we do our best to provide non-Saddle Up participants time with the horses.

IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT OVERNIGHT CAMP SESSIONS (NOT APPLICABLE TO TROOP TREKKERS) PROGRAM NOTES

HEALTH FORMS

Every girl who attends overnight camp will receive a commemorative item, camp patch, and any badges earned.

Health history forms are completed through CampDoc.com, a secure, encrypted, and password-protected electronic health record system for camps. Within two weeks of your registration, you will receive a link to set up your account and complete your camper’s health history. Each camper is required to have a physical examination (physician signed) within 12 months of her scheduled camp session. Health forms must be completed one week before the start of your camper’s session. All health forms are submitted/uploaded via CampDoc.com. If you have any questions, please contact the camp directors at ositocamp@girlscoutsla.org or lakotacamp@girlscoutsla.org.

Campers participating in our equestrian programs (Saddle Up) are scheduled for daily horse time (weather permitting).

TRANSPORTATION (OSITO ONLY) Round-trip bus transportation** is included as part of the cost of each session at Osito. Due to Osito’s mountain roads and remote location, we highly recommend bus transportation. It gives campers an opportunity to meet other girls before they arrive at camp. It also reduces the wear and tear on the camp’s natural environment. Overnight camp buses are chaperoned by camp staff.

El Ranchito, Marine Landing, Mariposa, La Casita, Camp Lakota, and Camp Osito Rancho allow for deposits. All other camps found in the camp guide require full payment at the time of registration. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable between camps.

CAMP/PROGRAM CREDIT CARDS Camp/Program Credit Cards can be used to pay for camp sessions in full or in partial payments through paper registration only. They cannot be used to pay for the

36

Camp fee balances are due four weeks prior to the start of every camp session. Late payments or payments not received will result in a loss of placement in the camp and loss of the deposit. It is the responsibility of the camper’s parent to pay camp fee balances by this deadline. Balance reminders will not be sent. Balances may be checked through your eBiz account. If a registration is submitted after balances are due, payment in full is required. If your camper is dropped from the camp due to balance not being paid by the deadline, and if you still wish for the camper to attend the camp, you will need to pay a new deposit fee along with the remainder of the camp balance. Payment must be in full and space must be available at the camp—no exceptions.

IS FINANCIAL AID AVAILABLE? Yes, financial aid “camperships” are available for campers whose family financial circumstances might otherwise prevent them from attending camp. Interested applicants must submit the Campership Application with their Camp Registration Form and family contribution by May 24, 2020. For more details, see p. 38.

WILL MY CAMPER NEED A PHYSICAL EXAMINATION TO ATTEND CAMP? For Osito overnight camp and the Lakota older girl experience, yes. Each camper is required to have a physical examination within 12 months of the starting day of their scheduled camp session. A Health History Form is required for all campers and must be completed no more than two months prior to the camper’s session.

WHAT IF MY CHILD NEEDS MEDICAL OR SPECIAL ACCOMMODATIONS WHILE AT CAMP?

REFUND POLICY No refunds and no prorated refunds will be made for campers who arrive late, leave early, attend only part of the camp, or choose not to attend the camp. All deposits for all camps are non-refundable and non-transferrable. Please check school calendars prior to registering your camper to avoid loss of deposit. If your camper is required to attend summer school, please contact registration@ girlscoutsla.org.

Overnight camp has a health supervisor on site, and all camps have first-aid-certified adults on site at all times who administer routine health care and any medications. An emergency contact plan is in place should any medical emergencies occur. Parents are notified as soon as possible in the event of any special medical or emergency situation. If your camper has any special needs (physical, behavioral, etc.), every effort will be made to accommodate her. Please include any past or potential concerns on the Health History Form on CampDoc.com. The camp director will contact you prior to your daughter’s session.

CAN SPECIAL FOODS BE PROVIDED? Most special dietary needs can be met if camp directors are notified in advance. At Osito overnight camp and the Lakota older girl experience, meal options due to medical, religious, or other reasons are available. Please indicate these requirements on your camper’s Health History Form. Vegetarian alternatives are offered at every meal.

CAN MY CAMPER BE IN THE SAME UNIT AS HER FRIEND? Girl Scout camp is a wonderful way to meet new people. A camper may request one “buddy” when registering for camp. Both campers must register for the same program and week at camp. Make sure you and your child’s buddy and her parents are planning this together. Bunk buddy placement is not guaranteed. See “How to Register” on p. 36.

WHO ARE THE CAMP STAFF? Camp staff (paid and volunteer) are enthusiastic, fun, caring, energetic, well-trained, and experienced individuals who are hired based on their ability to work with children in a learning and nurturing environment. All hired staff are required to complete a background check and 10–40 hours of training, depending on their respective position. American Camp Association accreditation for overnight camp requires training for all overnight camp staff on topics including youth supervision, child development, program planning, conflict resolution, first aid, CPR, and additional certification for specialized program delivery. The resident camp ratio of staff to campers in fourth grade and above is 1:8; and, for second and third grade, it’s 1:6 with a ratio of 1:6 for high-adventure programs. The day camp ratio is 1:10 and for aquatic activities, it is 1:8.

WHAT CAMP HEALTH AND SAFETY STANDARDS ARE MAINTAINED? All GSGLA camps meet the health and safety standards and guidelines established by Girl Scouts of the USA and the State of California. Copies of the California Health Department’s inspections are kept on file at council offices.

If a camper can no longer attend camp due to illness or injury—a physician’s letter must accompany the refund request prior to the start of camp. Please email to registration@girlscoutsla.org. Refund requests must be submitted by email to Camp Registration at registration@girlscoutsla.org.
