Summer Camp 2014 Adventures Imagination Excitement Girls Rock!

Happy Fun Friendship


Why Girl Scout Camp?

Because Girl Scout camp rocks! With tons of exciting adventures for girls of all ages -both Girl Scouts and non-scouts.

Girl Scouts of Central & Southern NJ (GSCSNJ) runs 3 summer camps, where girls can: • hike trails • cook outdoors • enjoy a campfire • try archery • conquer the rock wall

• fly down the zip line • cool off in the pool • go canoeing • enjoy outdoor sports and games …and so much more!

GSCSNJ summer camps provide girls with both a sense of adventure and the chance for personal growth. We encourage girl participation, personal achievement and skill improvement so every girl feels comfortable and successful. We offer lots of activities and program options specifically designed to meet the diverse and expanding recreational needs and interests of our campers. Camp teaches girls to take responsibility, and the importance of meaningful relationships in life. It is where they can truly be themselves, and accepted for who they are. Self-esteem is boosted, confidence increases, and girls learn about investing in themselves and the things that matter. An interesting thing happens at camp when kids are taken out of their usual environment: the rules change. Everything changes. Authenticity is rewarded. Responsibility is cool. Maturity adds clout. Camp builds confidence. Confidence in one’s abilities is a transferable skill. A child begins to think, “Well, if I can do that, then I can probably do this too…” Girls learn to do things they thought they could not do and recognize their strengths. New to our summer camps? Visit one of our Open Houses. Tour and meet the staff: Inawendiwin and Sacy are having their Open Houses on Sunday, May 4th; Oak Spring is having an Open House on Sunday, May 18th. No registration is necessary. Family and friends are welcome. Safety is our #1 priority. Staff is hired based on experience, ability to serve as a role model and a genuine desire to work with children. All staff participate in pre-camp training. Our camps are accredited by American Camp Association (ACA) and are certified by the NJ Youth Camp Safety Act.

Bear in winter.... waiting for summer!

I’m Vicky Allen, Sacy’s Resident Camp Director and Camp Program Manager, but I’m known as “Bear” to all of my camp friends. I started as Oak Spring’s Camp Director 20 years ago when I followed my passion from the Edison Township school system into the woods of our camps. This is my fifth summer at Sacy Resident and I’m more excited than ever for this coming summer! Girls who came for their first resident camp experience are growing up – and now they’re coming back to join the Camp Aide in Training (CAT) program and become tomorrow’s camp leaders! I hope to see you at camp this summer, joining me in this wonderful opportunity!

Nalette on a hike in Japan.

Hello! I’m Nalette Castillo, Camp Director at Oak Spring. I’m enthusiastic about all things camp and outdoors! I first became involved with Oak Spring Day Camp in my college years, and after a few years of teaching in North Jersey and Japan, I returned to Oak Spring last summer as Camp Director. I am passionate about giving girls the best camp experience possible. I truly believe that camp builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place! I am looking forward to seeing girls grow during their time at Oak Spring Day Camp!

Hi all! I’m Shena Seppanen, Inawendiwin’s Day Camp Director, but at camp I’m known as “Stumbles”. 2014 will be my 14th summer working at Girl Scout camp! I’ve made my way from Kettle Run to Sacy to Inawendiwin and worked up the ranks from Assistant Unit Leader to Unit Leader to Assistant Camp Director and finally Camp Director. It has been a wonderfully rewarding journey so far. Throughout the years, the most amazing thing I’ve seen is the transformation of my campers into confident, responsible, accomplished young women…some of whom are even part of the counseling staff now! I’m looking forward to meeting all of our new campers and welcoming back returning campers for new adventures! Shena Seppanen 856-795-1560 x 236 sseppanen@gscsnj.org

What you should know so you’re ready for a summer of fun No matter what your age – there are plenty of summer programs from which to choose. Camp is designed for YOU.

Our rustic camps offer day long, outdoor, summer activities. Hiking is definitely a daily activity just because our camps have so much to offer. Wearing sneakers and socks is a must – no time for flip-flops at camp. Girls have places to go and friends to make! Camp is about friends. Camp allows kids to take a deep breath and unplug from their electronics. Cell phones are not allowed at camp. Girls need to be able to be away from home without needing to call home. It has been our experience that calling home tends to make campers more homesick and is disruptive to other campers. The Camp Director will contact parents or guardians if problems arise. Every attempt will be made to place girls together when coming with friends, but it is not guaranteed. Girls must be in the same camp session and age level to be buddies in the same program.

Oak Spring is a 120-acre camp, bordering the Delaware-Raritan Canal in Somerset County. Oak Spring is our camp of rolling hills and grassy fields. Lower camp offers shaded and wooded sites along with the Craft Shack, Daisy Den, Camp Office and Health Center. “The HILL” includes Oak Spring’s new pool, archery range and zip line.

How can you get to camp? All of our camps offer optional busing. The proposed bus stops and schedules are included with each of the camp’s pages. You will get updated information closer to the start of your daughter’s week at camp. We are committed to keeping the bus routes – slight adjustments might have to be made based on registration. Parents should be at the bus stop about 10 minutes prior to the pick-up and drop-off times. All campers must be met and signed out at drop-off; no camper will be left at a stop. Campers who are not met, effect the schedule for the remaining stops, so parents or guardians need to make every effort to be on time. Note: Parents are responsible for picking up their camper if she attends the Night Lights program on specified weeks. The Night Lights program ends at 8PM on those Thursdays. You also have the option to use “Before/After Care” at both Inawendiwin and Oak Spring Day Camps. The drop-off/pick up times have been established to control traffic and safety for the bus dismissal. Whether you bring your camper or put her on a bus – all campers must be signed in and out.

Before you get to camp – registration has been set up so that girls attend programs based on their age level and interests. Program size is limited so that each girl has opportunities to try all of the activities and even improve skills. Staffing is based on age, program size and adultgirl ratios established by GSUSA and ACA. Everyone will receive a confirmation packet with complete information in about a week after you register. The confirmation packets will also be available on campforgirls.org. Once at camp – Girls should wear comfortable clothing. Light colors help reflect heat. Don’t wear new clothes to camp – you’re going to get dirty if you expect to have fun. Sneakers and socks are required – no flip flops, sandals or open-toed shoes – remember girls are participating in outdoor activities. Everything needs to be labeled with the camper’s name. Girls should know what’s in their backpack – so if it gets misplaced, they can identify it in Lost-N-Found. Everyone needs a water bottle, lunch*, towel, swim suit, bug repellent, and sunscreen. Girls might want to bring extra socks and underwear. If rain is in the forecast – don’t forget to pack your poncho – you’ll still be walking around camp! *You’ll get a reminder about cookout day. Overnights include dinner and breakfast. We’re going to take good care of your daughter. Each camp has a Health Center, staffed by a qualified Health Supervisor who is on-site during all camp activities (including overnights). Our camps meet the health and safety standards established by GSUSA, ACA, and NJ Health Department. If illness or injury requires additional medical attention, the Health Supervisor will call the on-call doctor or necessary emergency personnel. Please do not send your camper if she is sick or doesn’t feel well – it is better to have her stay home for a day so she’s able to feel better and return to camp the next day.

No BULLY ZONE Camp life is an excellent opportunity for girls to live and work together – proper behavior is always required. One behavior that will not be tolerated is bullying. GSCSNJ reserves the right to send any person home who willfully disobeys camp or bus rules, or whose behavior towards others is unacceptable. 3

Get Ready. Get Excited. Hope you’re as excited as we are.

Each week has some things in common – something extra to look forward to. Welcome to Camp — Each camper will see the Health Supervisor. Picture Day is Tuesday. Each program (day camp) and resident camp unit gets a group shot taken by a professional photographer. Pictures are given out on Friday and are the perfect way to remember friends and fun. All campers receive a camp t-shirt on their first Tuesday in camp. Each summer there is a new design featuring all 3 summer camps (represented by their animal mascots). Campers attending multiple weeks should wear their t-shirt each Tuesday for picture day! Day Camp cook-outs are either Wednesday or Thursday. You’ll get more information about which day and what’s on the menu earlier in the week. Campers can still bring their own lunch as a substitute. Menu choices take into account special diets – so that there is something for everyone. Please make sure you include special dietary needs and restrictions on your camper’s health record with CampDoc.

Traditions of camp include Opening and Closing flag each day, with units taking turns as the Color Guard. The day camps have their closing campfires on Friday afternoon. Sacy has a Sunday night campfire where Chief White Fang welcomes the campers – and a closing campfire by the lake on Thursday evening where we start to say our goodbyes to friends and a great week at camp.
