Dear Families, Is your Girl Scout ready to camp like a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™? Whether she’s a first-timer or a seasoned camper, every girl is welcome to be an outdoor adventurer at our four resident and six day camps in Massachusetts and New Hampshire! Girl Scout summer camp can be a life-changing, unforgettable experience where a girl can make new friends and learn about herself in a supportive, all-girl environment. Our summer programs (grades K-12) include: horseback riding, water sports, arts and crafts, bicycling, hiking, theater arts, archery, science exploration, rock wall climbing, low and high ropes challenge courses, zip lining, and more.

Girls can fill their summer with sailing and swimming, hiking and biking, science and sing-alongs, campfires and cooking, high ropes courses and horseback riding, visual and performing arts, day and overnight trips, and much more!

A choice of where, when, and how to experience camp. You choose: white sands or green hills, relaxation or challenge, day or overnight camp. Girls can join us for a few days or the whole summer. They can come on their own, attend with a buddy, or experience camp life with the whole family!

A community like no other. At camp, girls find the courage within themselves to meet new people, make friends, and bond. It’s a safe place for them to learn individual responsibility, work as part of a team, and develop their leadership skills.

A highly-trained team of role models excited to work with girls. We hand-pick our caring, skilled staff from around the world based on their ability to work with girls, teach and share skills, and be part of a team, as well as their commitment to the values of Girl Scouting. Many return each year to help create new memories.

From the most trusted name in girl leadership. Girl Scout camps have been creating summer memories for nearly a century in eastern Massachusetts. All of our camps are accredited by the American Camp Association, and comply with state regulations governing summer camps, as well as local licensing requirements.

CAMP GUIDE | 79


Keeping Girls Safe and Healthy at Camp The American Camp Association (ACA) sets high standards for the health and safety of campers and staff, and the delivery of quality programs. ACA accreditation means that the camp you are considering undergoes a thorough annual review of its operation—from staff qualifications and training to emergency management. The ACA collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth service agencies to ensure that current practices reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation.

Camp Life

Pre-Camp Health Assessment

Girls will be placed a group of 5-30 girls, with two to five staff per group. Girls who choose resident camp will stay in a cabin (6-12 girls), yurt (6 girls), tent-a-lo (5 girls), or platform tent (4-6 girls). All are supplied with cots/beds and mattresses. The program, number of girls, and campers’ ages will determine specific living arrangements. Each unit has shelter for rainy day activities, bathroom facilities, and storage.

Required health forms are provided in camp confirmation packets and are due by May 1, 2019. Girls are required to have a physical examination within the 12 months prior to their arrival at camp and health forms must be completed and signed by a physician each year.

Camp Safety Guidelines

All staff are at least 18 years of age or high school graduates, and are selected based on their ability to work with girls, teach and share skills, and work as a team, as well as their commitment to Girl Scout values. We conduct thorough staff criminal background (CORI) and sexual offender (SORI) checks. Once hired, staff attend one to three weeks of training to bond as a team and gain skills in camping, risk management, safety, positive youth development, and interpersonal communication.

We follow all safety and risk management guidelines set by the local, state, and federal boards of health, Girl Scouts of the USA, and the ACA. All of our camps are ACA accredited. Massachusetts camps comply with regulations of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (105 CMR 430.000), New Hampshire camps comply with the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services Rules (Part Env-WS 1120.00), and each camp is also licensed by the board of health of the town in which it is located.

Campers with Special Needs We make every attempt to offer summer camp opportunities to all girls and can accommodate most special needs. Please call 617-350-8335 to discuss how we can make your camper’s experience exciting, appropriate, and fulfilling. The information you share with us will be held confidential, shared only as HIPAA allows, and in accordance with your wishes.

Care of Mildly Ill Campers A healthcare supervisor (HCS) staffs the camp health center and a healthcare consultant (local physician) is on call. Staff is responsible for reporting any signs of illness to the HCS, who assesses each situation, and may administer over-the-counter medications if authorized by the caregiver. The HCS will determine if the camper should be sent home or seen by the healthcare consultant, in which case arrangements are made under the oversight of the camp director. In both situations, caregivers are contacted as soon as possible.

80 | HEALTH AND SAFETY STANDARDS

Staff Selection, Screening, and Training

Weapons, Drugs, and Smoking Policy We do not permit recreational drugs, alcohol, pets, tobacco products, or weapons of any kind (e.g. Swiss army knives, scissors, etc.) at camp. Girls who regularly take a prescription medication should bring it to camp in its original container with their name on it, and turn it over to the bus monitor or healthcare supervisor upon their entry onto the bus or arrival at camp.

Your Rights To comply with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and to be licensed by the local boards of health, we inform you that caregivers have the right to request proof of background checks, camp healthcare policies, and discipline policies, as well as policies for filing grievances.
