Dear Camper and Parent/ Caregiver,

Can you believe it’s time to get excited for the camp season already? It feels like just yesterday that it was only two weeks into the 2017 camp season! Camp Alice Pittenger and Camp Ta-Man-A-Wis are gearing up for another amazing summer. Camp Ta-Man-A-Wis has a new corral that is ready for horses and Camp Alice Pittenger is newly accredited by the American Camp Association. Girl Scouts builds girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place and it’s no different when girls attend camp. This summer we will be celebrating courageous and confident women; super heroes of movies, books and history. Safety and supervision continue to be top priorities at both Camp Alice Pittenger and Camp Ta-Man-A-Wis. Staff at both camps consist of adults who are carefully screened and selected based on their abilities to work with youth in an outdoor setting. We highlight respect for self and others, trying new things and giving girls an opportunity to accept and be accepted. Our staff believes in the Girl Scout Promise and Law and receives in-depth, pre-camp training. Registration opens January 15th, 2018. We look forward to seeing you at camp this summer! Your Camp Team, Courtney “Yooper” Russell Thompson, Camp Manager & Carol “Echo” Ashton, Camp Registrar

Courtney holds two degrees from Northern Michigan University in Early Childhood Development and Outdoor Recreation Leadership and Management. She has years of experiences working for the Girl Scouts and the YMCA day and summer camps. She loves leading camp songs, teaching girls about the great outdoors and anything that requires being on water. 2


Camp Traditions

Girls get a chance to try new things, make new friends, and connect with other Girl Scouts. Girl Scout camp is a place where girls find their adventurous side, and build the courage and confidence to take risks in a fun and safe environment. It’s the place where girls have the freedom to be themselves! Our Camps Camp Alice Pittenger (CAP) is located near Ponderosa State Park on Payette Lake in McCall, Idaho. CAP features water activities, including swimming, lake kayaking, and canoeing. Girls also explore arts and the great outdoors.

Our Camp Staff Girl Scouts of Silver Sage recruit and screen mature, qualified candidates who have a desire to share their enthusiasm for camping and the outdoors with your camper.

Camp Ta-Man-A-Wis (TAM) is located in the heart of the Caribou-Targhee National Forest, near Palisades Reservoir near the Snake River. TAM features extensive hiking trails and beautiful scenery for backpacking and traditional camp activities. Our camps are beautiful and rustic, and may not meet all American Disability Act Guidelines. The Girl Scouts of Silver Sage will make reasonable accommodations so that any girl can enjoy a camp experience. Not a Girl Scout? Not a Problem! All girls entering 2nd through 12th grades in the Fall of 2018 are invited to attend any of our camps. Girls entering 1st grade in the Fall of 2018 can attend Girls’ Weekend, Jack & Jill Weekend, or Family Camp. You do not have to be a member of Girl Scouts prior to camp, however you must register as one before camp. Financial assistance is available for registration and camp sessions.

ALL CAMP ACTIVITIES All campers and staff come together to enjoy fun games and challenges. This is a great opportunity for each unit to bond with girls from different age groups and units in camp.

Camp Name: 3

Selection of camp staff is based on the individual’s experience, ability to serve as a role model, and a genuine desire to work with girls. All camp staff are backgroundchecked and must have current first-aid and CPR certification. Pre-camp training includes program guidance, camping skill enhancement, relationship skills, and more. Specialized staff direct water activities, archery, team challenge courses, and other areas. Both male and female staff may fill positions such as site maintenance manager, bus driver, life guard, cook and medical support.

Opening campfire is a special introduction to the camp session. Campers meet counselors, sing camp songs, and make s’mores. At closing campfire, girls prepare skits or lead songs, and share memories from the week.

All Girl Scout camps have traditions and one that they all seem to have in common is camp names. Camp staff choose camp names at the beginning of their Girl Scout Camp careers based on their personality, a hobby or something that best describes them. If your camper comes home talking about how silly “Camo” was or that their favorite counselor was “Jazzy”, don’t be alarmed. They are just carrying on an old camp tradition!

To ensure placement together, both girls must submit camp registration forms for the same session with each other’s buddy name. Only one buddy request per camper. Camp Visitors Parents may receive a camp tour when they drop off their camper(s).

Digital cameras are the exception to this rule and are allowed at camp. If a camper is caught using an electronic device, it will be removed, labeled with her name, and returned at the end of the camp session. Adults may use cell phones, however cabins do not have electrical outlets for charging. Weather Girl Scouts of Silver Sage reserves the right to alter activities due to weather conditions.

Girls and adults attending more than three days of camp will be required to have a health exam (within the last 24 months from the session’s opening date). No camper will be admitted to camp without a current Health History Form, which must be turned in at check in. Girls and adults attending less than three days of camp need to complete the first page. Medical Professionals Camps have a medical professional on site. If campers require additional medical attention, area medical centers are on-call and if needed campers will be transported there. A parent or guardian will be called if a fever arises, contagious symptoms exist, or camper needs to be transported to the hospital. Health Screening Girls will go through a brief health screening upon arrival at camp. Girls and adults found to have a high temperature or contagious disease will be sent home. All girls are checked for head lice during check-in at camp and if found, the camper will need to be picked up by a parent or guardian for treatment and cleared by a doctor before being allowed back at camp. The health supervisor has the right to refuse admittance to any girl/adult who does not meet acceptable health standards. Note: This health screening does not eliminate the need for a health exam for girls and adults attending more than three days of camp. Medication The health supervisor will administer prescribed and over-thecounter medications. Note: MEDICATIONS MUST BE IN ORIGINAL CONTAINERS AND WILL ONLY BE ADMINISTERED TO THE SPECIFIC PERSON TO WHOM IT WAS PRESCRIBED. Health and Hygiene Girls need to be able to take care of their basic health and hygiene such as applying sunscreen, brushing their hair and teeth, showering, and changing their clothes each day. Counselors will help cue girls with basic needs, however girls are ultimately responsible for self-care.
