The girl scout difference Girl-led. Girl-tested. Girl-approved. At Girl Scout camp, girls feel comfortable trying new things, testing their limits, and acquiring new skills in a safe and supportive all-girl environment.

Every camp activity under the sun (and moon). Girls can fill their summer with sailing and swimming, hiking and biking, science and singalongs, 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: swimming or boating, relaxation or challenge, day or resident camp. Girls can join us for a few days or the whole summer. They can come on their own, attend with a buddy.

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 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. Girls have been creating summer memories at Girl Scout camps 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 and local licensing requirements.

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

A Safe Summer Camp Experience Summer camp in 2021 will look a little different, but we are excited for the woods to come alive again with laughter, fun, adventure, and friendship! Safety is a cornerstone of Girl Scouting. 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. When you register your girl for camp, you will begin receiving monthly emails from GSEMA with any updates about camp safety both prior to arriving at camp and while 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 GSUSA. Please be sure that your email address within 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 girls get the summer camp experience of their dreams! Thank you in advance for helping us keep camp safe and fun.

Please be aware that the photos in this Camp Guide are from summers prior to 2020 and may not reflect the safety precautions we are implementing for 2021 summer camp.

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.

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.

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.

6

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 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.

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, 2021. Please include their names and phone numbers. Everyone picking up a camper from the bus must show a photo ID.

Pre-Camp Health Assessment Required health forms are provided in camp confirmation packets and are due by May 3, 2021. 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.

KEEPING GIRLS SAFE AND HEALTHY AT CAMP

GETTING READY

Care of Mildly Ill Campers

Weapons, Drugs, and Smoking Policy

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.

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 name on it, and turn them over to the bus monitor or healthcare supervisor upon arrival to the bus or camp.

Campers with Special Needs We make every attempt to offer summer camp opportunities to all girls. We can accommodate most special needs and dietary restrictions/ preferences. Email customercare@gsema.org, and a GSEMA staff member will schedule a call 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.

Register online hercamp.org

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, email the Director of Camp and Outdoor Experience at customercare@gsema.org.

⇨ Financial aid is provided on a rolling basis as long as funds are available. ⇨ The deposit is refundable if financial assistance is not approved. ⇨ All information related to financial assistance will be kept confidential. ⇨ Funding for assistance is limited and not all requests may be granted.

To Apply

Review and Next Steps

1

Complete the online camp registration form on CampInTouch and pay the $50 deposit per session.

⇨ Financial assistance applications are reviewed as they are received, and families will be notified of decisions within two weeks of review.

2

Once you have submitted the registration form and paid the deposit, go to the CampinTouch Forms & Documents section and complete a financial assistance application.

⇨ GSEMA may request proof of income documentation during the review process. ⇨ Final payment of remaining camp fees (after the deposit and any financial assistance) is due May 31, 2021. ⇨ Campers receiving financial assistance are subject to all cancellation policies (see page 74).
