Getting Ready for Camp

Camp Like a Girl Scout

Making Memories that Last a Lifetime Girl Scout-led. Girl Scouttested. Girl Scout-approved. At Girl Scout camp, campers feel comfortable trying new things, testing their limits, and acquiring new skills in a safe and supportive environment.

Every camp activity under the sun (and moon). Campers can fill their summer with sailing and swimming, hiking and biking, science and sing-alongs, campfires and cooking, high ropes courses and 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 resident camp. Join us for a few days or the whole summer—come by yourself or with a buddy, and make new friends to last a lifetime.

Not a Girl Scout yet? No problem! Prior Girl Scout or troop membership is not required.

4

A community like no other. Campers 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 youth. We hand-pick our caring, skilled staff from around the world based on their ability to work with youth, 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. Campers have been creating summer memories at Girl Scout camps for nearly a century in eastern Massachusetts and New Hampshire. All of our camps are accredited by the American Camp Association, and comply with state regulations governing summer camps and local licensing requirements.

Getting Ready for Camp

Camp Like a Girl Scout

Camp Life Girl Scout camp is the perfect place for campers to explore their interests, gain new experiences, and grow into confident leaders. Plus, they’ll have a blast and make amazing new friends! Every camp session is a one-of-akind experience; campers take the lead and enjoy their dream camp experience with support from professional trained staff. Visit gsema.org/camp to learn about our camp directors! Campers are placed in groups of 4-24, with 2-5 staff per group. Resident campers stay in cabins (6-10 campers), yurts (6 campers), tent-a-los (5 campers), or platform tents (4-6 campers) with cots/beds and mattresses. Each camp has shelter for rainy day activities, bathroom facilities, storage, and a health center.

Start the Fun on the Way to Camp! Bus transportation is included in the cost of day camp. Bus stop locations and times for each camp are included in this guide. To register for bus transportation, complete the Day Camp Bus Selection Form, which is available in your CampInTouch account, by May 31, 2022. Bus transportation pick-up procedures are on the next page.

Be Prepared Visit our GSEMA shop in Waltham for all your camper’s needs. Trading posts at each camp will also have fun camp items and gear for sale, as well as limited quantities of adult-size camp apparel. See page 47 for a resident camp packing list! Be sure to preorder camp T-shirts and hoodies when you register for camp to ensure your camper gets the right size! Youth sizes are only available for preorder. Keep an eye out for deadlines for your camp apparel this spring. Announcements will be made via email to all families. Register online at gsema.org/camp.

Keeping Campers Safe and Healthy

A Safe Summer Camp Experience As we learned in summer 2021, camp can be run during a pandemic. We are excited for the woods to come alive again during summer 2022 with laughter, fun, adventure, and friendship! Safety is a cornerstone of Girl Scouting. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking special precautions to keep our campers and staff safe and healthy, including increased cleaning measures, reduced capacities, adjusted program and operational procedures, and detailed training for our summer camp and full-time staff. As our regulations are updated, GSEMA will update all procedures and communicate them with families. When you register your Girl Scout for camp, you will begin receiving monthly emails from GSEMA with any updates about camp safety both prior to camp and while your Girl Scout is at camp. These updates will be in alignment with any requirements or recommendations established by the CDC, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, the New Hampshire Department of Health, the American Camp Association, and Girl Scouts of the USA. Please be sure that your email address in CampInTouch is accurate. In addition to these emails, we will also communicate all camp updates on our website and social media. Adherence to all safety procedures ensures that all campers get the summer camp experience of their dreams! Thank you in advance for helping us keep camp safe and fun.

Gender Inclusion at Summer Camp GSEMA pledges our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging as an ally and advocate for underserved and/or underrepresented members of our community, regardless of race/ethnicity, disabilities, LGBTQ, sexual orientation, national origin, age, religion, or socioeconomic status. With this commitment, GSEMA welcomes non-binary youth and transgender boys in addition to anyone who identifies as a girl. As a youth-serving organization, our priority is the safety and well-being of the young people in our community. Troop leaders, families, and GSEMA staff can work together to support and empower non-binary and transgender youth within Girl Scouting.

Keeping Campers Safe and Healthy Camp Safety Guidelines 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.

COVID-19 Precautions We are taking special precautions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to keep our campers and staff safe and healthy, including increased cleaning measures, reduced capacities, adjusted program and operational procedures, and detailed training for our summer camp and full-time staff. Caregivers of registered campers will receive monthly communications from GSEMA with updated safety regulations and procedures based on any new requirements and recommendations from the CDC, the Massachusetts and New Hampshire Departments of Public Health, the American Camp Association, and Girl Scouts of the USA. For summer 2022, all GSEMA staff (including our camp staff) will be required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19.

Staff Selection, Screening, and Training All staff are at least 18 years of age or high school graduates, and are selected based on their ability to work with youth, 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.

Bus Transportation Campers taking the bus must be picked up at the selected bus stop by an authorized pick-up person. We cannot accept notes from caregivers to have campers walk home from the bus stop alone. You can log into CampInTouch to update your list of those who are authorized to pick up your camper by May 31, 2022. Please include their names and phone numbers. Everyone picking up a camper from the bus must show a photo ID. Register online at gsema.org/camp.

Getting Ready for Camp

Pre-Camp Health Assessment Required health forms are provided in camp confirmation packets and are due by May 2, 2022. Campers 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.

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 with the oversight of the camp director. In both situations, caregivers are contacted as soon as possible.

Campers with Special Needs We make every attempt to offer summer camp opportunities to all youth who want to attend Girl Scout camp. We can accommodate most special needs and dietary restrictions/preferences. Please email customercare@gsema.org to arrange a meeting with a member of our camp team 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.

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. Campers who regularly take prescription medication should bring them to camp in their original containers with their names on them, and turn them over to the bus monitor or healthcare supervisor upon arrival to the bus or camp.

Your Rights To comply with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and be licensed by the local boards of health, we inform you that caregivers have the right to request a copy of our background checks policy, camp healthcare policies, and discipline policies, as well as policies for filing grievances. To make an appointment to do so, contact customercare@gsema.org.
