Dear Camp Families, Is your girl ready for another exciting year of outdoor adventures?! Summer starts here... at Girl Scout Camp! This summer, girls will get to explore their inner Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, and Leader (G.I.R.L.), which means they will practice leadership and experience success while trying new things, develop a range of new skills, and feel comfortable failing and trying again in a safe all-girl, girl-led environment. Your G.I.R.L. will develop grit and determination by diving into new adventures in the outdoors and demonstrate creative thinking by practicing environmental stewardship and using creative and artistic talents to explore nature. Girl Scouts will have the opportunity to discover anything is possible while enjoying all of the amazing amenities that our camps have to offer. Our three summer resident camps feature fun outdoor activities like swimming, watersports, archery, campfires, and so much more. Each camp also offers a variety of activities unique to that camp property such as climbing the Alpine Tower at Camp Mary Atkinson, sleeping among the trees in our Tree House unit at Camp Graham, and exploring the Pamlico River at Camp Hardee. No matter which session or camp your girl attends, she will have an awesome time exploring the great outdoors and building important life skills such as teamwork, independence, and leadership. Your girl will be guided by our encouraging staff to take the lead, explore her potential, and build her bravery. She’ll be lifted up, cheered on, and supported along the way by campers and staff from across North Carolina and the world. At Girl Scout summer camp, girls experience unique opportunities in a fun, safe, and healthy environment. We know that by sharing your camper with us, you are placing the utmost trust in our ability to take good care of her. That’s a responsibility we take seriously — and it’s why we remain dedicated to helping prepare girls (and families) for an unforgettable summer experience with Girl Scouts. One of the best ways to help prepare your girl for camp is to attend our free camp open house events this spring. Campers and their families are invited to tour the property, meet camp staff, and discover the adventures that await! Plus, it’s a great opportunity to see your girl get excited about camp and learn more about new skills, friendships, and memories she’ll bring home from Girl Scout camp this summer. So, what are you waiting for?! Summer starts here… at camp! Camp registration opens February 4, 2019. We can’t wait to see how your girl takes the lead like a G.I.R.L.!

Every Girl

GIRL SCOUT CAMP IS FOR

Girl Scout camp is all about trying new things, meeting new friends, and having fun. Whether you’re interested in horses, archery, swimming, canoeing, hiking, adventure trips, or are looking to try all of the above, you can have a great summer at Girl Scout camp!

Camp Standards

Important dates

Camp Graham, Camp Hardee, and Camp Mary Atkinson are proud to be accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA), a national organization that sets high standards for the health and safety of campers and staff, and the delivery of quality programs. In addition to meeting the established standards for health, safety, program, and personnel criteria set by federal, state, and local governments, our camps meet the standards set by Girl Scouts of the USA.

Outdoor s

Girls dive into a whole new world of activities at Girl Scout camp — swimming freely in lakes, working together to steer a canoe, practicing the perfect shot in archery, exploring nature during an afternoon hike, learning to cook over a fire, and cheering on friends as they challenge themselves to try new things. Girls also strengthen their skills and grow their passion for environmental stewardship through our outdoor leadership programming. When a girl goes to camp… • She will grow in self-confidence and know that her voice counts; • She will support others and be supported; • She will increase her circle of friends, lead a group, follow others, compromise, and make decisions for herself; • She will create a community that values differences; • She will discover that anything is possible.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Q: Who can attend Girl Scout camp? A: Camp is open to all girls ages 5-17. Some programs have entering grade requirements or prerequisites which must be met to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of all campers. Q: My camper is not a member of Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines but would like to attend camp. Can she attend? Are there additional fees? A: Girl Scout camps are open to all girls. Girls who are not members of Girl Scouts or Girl Scouts - North Carolina Coastal Pines will pay an additional $75 on their total camp bill per session. Q: Where will campers sleep? A: Girls are grouped in units. Depending on their camp and program choice, girls may sleep in cabins, tree houses, or platform tents depending on the camp. Each unit has trained counselors housed in separate quarters within the living unit, but close enough to supervise campers. In select sessions at each camp, counselors sleep in the same cabin as girls (see camp session descriptions for more details). Q: Can my camper attend camp with a buddy/friend? A: During registration, a buddy’s name can be listed. Buddies must be in the same age group and must register for the same session. We are not able to honor requests for more than one buddy. Q: Who are the camp staff? A: Camp staff is enthusiastic, talented, and caring. They are selected based on maturity, program experience, and genuine desire to work with girls. Counselors are 18+ years old with the exception of older Girl Scouts completing our Counselor-in-Training (CIT) programs. While most camp staff are from North Carolina, we work to recruit diverse staff from many different countries around the world. These staff members share their culture with the campers through camp activities. Q: What type of training do camp staff receive? A: Before camp begins, staff attend an intensive on-site training which includes activity programming, outdoor skills, songs, games, first aid and safety, emergency procedures, team building, program age level characteristics, working through homesickness, and more. Q: My child has special needs. Can she attend camp? A: Each year, many girls with special needs participate in our camp program. Girls must be able to function in a 6:1 girl-to-adult ratio. Special needs may include a range of physical, medical, developmental, dietary, behavioral, or communicative abilities. It is our hope to be able to serve all girls wishing to attend camp. Providing a safe and positive experience to all campers is of utmost importance to us. We reserve the right to make decisions of participation based on the extent of the girl’s needs and our ability to meet those needs in the camp setting, as well as other factors as deemed appropriate. We are concerned about the health and safety of all campers, and we want to ensure we have appropriate professional and medical services to meet needs. Please contact the camp director at 800-284-4475 to discuss the camp program and nature of your girl’s needs.

6 | 2019 Summer Fun Guide


Q: My camper has special dietary needs or restrictions. How are menus managed at camp? A: Menus are planned with the general camp population and economy of associated costs in mind. We will make every attempt to provide for special dietary needs within the scope of our regular menus. Please contact the camp director at 800-284-4475 for more information. Q: Can my camper call home during the week? A: Campers are not permitted to make or receive phone calls. We encourage independence and self-reliance during camp. The camp director will contact parents if a camper has a medical problem, is excessively homesick, or has an emergency. Please let your child know before camp that she will not be able to call home and that you are comfortable with this. It is important not to send your child to camp with a cell phone. There is little coverage on our properties, and more importantly, it will send a conflicting message to other campers. We are partners with you in your child’s summer experience, and we hope that you will support us with this camp policy. Q: Can I visit my camper during a camp session? A: To help maintain program continuity and ensure the safety of campers, visitors are only allowed at camp during open house and arrival/departure hours. Q: What happens if my camper has a difficult time adjusting to camp? A: Camp staff will do everything possible to help girls adjust to camp life. However, resident camp staff reserves the right to send home any camper who consistently exhibits inappropriate behavior or endangers herself or others. A camper’s parent/guardian is responsible for picking her up and fees will not be refunded. Q: What measures are taken to ensure my child’s safety while at camp? A: We are dedicated to providing safe and secure camps. Each camp follows the guidelines set by the American Camp Association as well as those set by Girl Scouts of the USA through Safety Activity Checkpoints. Staff is housed in close proximity to camper cabins and tents, and buildings and grounds are checked nightly. All camp staff and adults spending the night at camp must successfully complete a criminal background check. Q: If our plans change, how do I cancel my child’s session? Can I get a refund? A: Please notify our customer care team as soon as possible if plans change and your camper can no longer attend camp. Once you register for a session, you have made a commitment to that session. Refunds are available under special circumstances minus the non-refundable deposit. Please see page 24 for our refund and cancellation policy. Q: When is the last day to register for camp? A: Camp registrations will close two weeks prior to the start of each session. Exceptions can be made if space is available. Please note: for Adventure Trip and some Specialty Session campers will also need to have had a physical completed by a physician within the past 12 months. Q: When can I expect to receive confirmation information about summer camp? A: Once you have completed your registration for camp, you can log back in your MYGS account and access the 2019 Summer Camp Confirmation on the My Activities page of your Member Profile. Confirmation packets will be emailed to all campers registered on May 1, 2019. 7


Camp

GRAHAM Camp Graham is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream come true! This Girl Scout property is situated on beautiful Kerr Lake with 155 acres of lake front, open areas, and woodlands. Girls will unleash their inner G.I.R.L. as they explore a wide range of camp activities including hiking, field and nature games, archery, swimming, sailing, and more. At camp, girls move through the daily schedule as a unit participating in activities with girls who are in the same cabins or tents. Morning sessions follow breakfast and activities are dependent on the camper’s age, but could include taking aim at the archery range, enjoying the waterfront with a swim or exploring our property by foot, canoe, or kayak. Lunch and rest time follows before girls are off on afternoon outdoor adventures and fun – including a camper favorite, tie-dying! Campers will spend the evenings enjoying all-camp activities and spend the night in platform tents, tree houses, or cabins, based on their session.

Camp

HARDEE Summer days at Camp Hardee are spent on the beautiful waterfront of the Pamlico River. Girls are able to admire the property while exploring nature and spending quality time with their unit, who are the other girls at camp in the same age group. Each day, girls channel their inner G.I.R.L. by taking on new adventures like swimming, hiking, boating, and arts and crafts. As the smallest of the three properties, Camp Hardee becomes one giant family by allowing girls to make new friends by choosing where they want to sit at each meal and having nightly camp wide activities. In the mornings and afternoons, girls head out to activities where they try new things, develop and hone outdoor skills, and encourage fellow campers to step out of their comfort zone and try something new. The long summer days allow for an evening full of fun and adventure after dinner. Depending on the night of the week, there is a different activity where the entire camp comes together to have a blast. These evening activities include things like a campfire, pool party, international night, or an all-camp activity based on the weekly theme. Girls then head to their air-conditioned bunks to get a good night’s sleep for the next exciting day at camp.

Camp

MARY ATKINSON Mornings at Camp Mary Atkinson bring a variety of activities including boating, archery, swimming, or crafts - just to name a few! Girls will rotate through activities with their lodging unit, while horse campers head to the barn for their day of riding and activities. Depending on age and ability, girls may canoe, kayak, or paddle board on our small lake. Girls may find themselves channeling their inner G.I.R.L. while exploring nature trails, fishing, or playing games. Girls entering grade 4 and up may have a chance to climb the Alpine Tower: best view in camp! The evening brings flag lowering, dinner, and an evening activity such as a pool party, large-group game, or an all-camp activity based on the weekly theme. During the final evening at camp, girls and staff will enjoy a Girl Scout staple - a campfire. Staff lead everyone in much-loved camp songs and units perform skits they’ve created and practiced throughout the week. We can’t wait to see what our G.I.R.L.s bring this year!

Meet Alicia

a camper ship recipient

She loves working on community service projects and always leads her troop in cookie sales. She’s dedicated to her troop, she’ll do anything you ask her to do to help, and is flourishing through the Girl Scout program. Alicia’s mom is a single, working mom. In the spring, her mother was evicted from their home. They are now living with Alicia’s grandmother.

You would be hard-pressed to find a Girl Scout more deserving of a campership. A once-in-a-lifetime trip to summer camp couldn’t have come at a better time - providing Alicia a safe, supportive environment during a period of intense transition and uncertainty. As a rising sixth grader, Alicia attended Around the World Week at Camp Mary Atkinson. Nature hikes, archery, swimming, the 50-foot alpine climbing tower, canoeing, kayaking, and paddle boarding! Alicia did all this and more! 23 | 2019 Summer Fun Guide

Final Payment Date Camp fees must be paid in full by May 1, 2019. Your camper’s registration will be cancelled, and no refund will be made if payment is not received by the deadline. Depending on the number of girls on the waitlist, your camper’s slot may be filled immediately. Please be mindful of this important date, as we usually have wait listed other girls who want to attend camp. Payments can be made online or via check, credit card, or Cookie Dough at one of our four service center locations. Financial assistance is also available for those in need.

Early Registration Incentive All registrations placed prior to March 31 will be billed at the discounted rate published in this year’s program guide. Any registration received after March 31 will be billed at the higher rate listed in the guide. The $75 non-member fee will be added to the registration fees regardless of whether the registration is received before or after March 31.

“When I picked her up, she was all smiles. She shared that she met a lot of new people and formed a deep bond with one girl in particular.” How excited is your Girl Scout right now as she looks through this guide and imagines all the possibilities for fun this summer? How excited are you for her? Imagine being in Alicia and her mom’s shoes when the Summer Fun Guide arrived last year; they both knew that even with her Cookie Dough, camp wasn’t an option. BUT, imagine their excitement when they learned she received a campership! Alicia was able to attend Around the World Week at Camp Mary Atkinson thanks to our generous donors.

That excitement is contagious, and we want to spread it!

I’d like to help spread the excitement and send a Girl Scout like Alicia to camp! While we work to keep camp affordable, there are girls whose financial situation is such that camp is not a possibility. Each year we provide nearly $70,000 in financial assistance for Girl Scouts to have a camp experience, to try new things, to make lifelong friends, and to return home all smiles. You can help make summer camp possible for a deserving Girl Scout like Alicia with your gift to our Campership Fund. Thank you! $50

Camp Financial Assistance Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines understands the value of camp and continues to provide financial support to offer these important programs at affordable rates. Camp fees cover most council direct costs such as food, program supplies, supplementary health and accident insurance, and camp counselor salaries. Indirect costs such as planning and administering the program, registration, and property maintenance are costs subsidized by the council. Our council’s total expense for a week at one of our three Girl Scout resident summer camps exceeds $650 per girl. Families are only asked, on average, to pay $325 per girl. Did you know that cookies help to make summer camp happen? Proceeds from the Girl Scout Cookie Program help our council provide high-quality summer experiences for all girls regardless of their socio-economic status.

Camperships Financial assistance in the form of camperships enables all girls to enjoy the Girl Scout camp experience. Camperships are made possible thanks to our many generous donors and are available to currently registered Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines members who are unable to pay the total cost of a camp experience. To be considered for a campership, a girl must be a registered Girl Scout member, have selected and registered for her summer camp session, and paid the non-refundable deposit fee. For more information about camperships or to apply online, please visit www.nccoastalpines.org. A request form is included on page 26. Applications are due by April 1. Please note: Families may apply for up to $200 in financial assistance per girl member. Awards are limited to one session per girl member, not to exceed $200. If you would like to make summer resident camp possible for a girl, please mark your donation to the Campership Fund during the online registration process or on the registration form. Donations are tax deductible.

Sue “Skipper” Csorba Award The Sue “Skipper” Csorba Award is a campership honoring a Girl Scout alumna from Annapolis, Maryland.
