Dear Families, Thank you for your interest in our Summer Resident Camp Programs. We are excited about all of the programs we are offering this summer, including some returning programs such as arts and crafts, swimming, hiking, cooking and archery. Your camper will experience the great outdoors in a safe, secure environment with trained staff. She will discover new things about herself and connect to the world around her. We have three wonderful camps for you to choose from: •

Camp for All Seasons (CFAS), located on the west side of Tallahassee just off State Road 20.

Camp Kolomoki, located west of DeFuniak Springs, north of Highway 90.

Kugelman Campus, located in Lillian, Alabama on Perdido Bay.

All of our facilities have large meeting spaces with fully equipped commercial kitchens and dining areas where she will eat well-prepared meals, participate in programs in the evenings and during inclement weather. There are sporting fields, archery ranges, and horse stables. We have hiking trails, water activities, and much more at all locations. Our arts and crafts rooms, pools, and clinics are staffed with qualified personnel. Register your daughter for camp and she will have the opportunity to discover new things and connect with girls from various backgrounds and locations. Allow her to discover the power of being a girl! Whether she is a returning or first time camper, we look forward to creating a second summer home for her at our camp. We look forward to seeing her there!

During activity sessions girls will be earning badges and/or journey awards appropriate to her age level. The awards girls will earn are located in the camp session descriptions. These may be part of the Girls Guide to Girl Scouting or a Journey. Because the activity sessions at camp can sometimes be quite varied girls will often work on several different badges at one time. Some follow up work may need to be completed at home. Please keep in mind the weather does have an impact on some activities, especially swimming and canoeing. Campers will receive the badges and/or journey awards they earn at camp during check-out.

6:00pm Dinner

Camp Activities Although a camper will register to attend a session based on a particular theme, she will also have the opportunity to participate in general camp activities. Some of these activities are canoeing, swimming, archery, arts and crafts, sailing, crazy games, hiking, dance parties, scavenger hunts, water relays, and so much more! Campers will also be given sessions each day for choice activities. This allows girls to participate in the activities that they love the most. All of the activities are supervised by qualified trained staff who are certified in First Aid and CPR.

7:00pm Night Activity (example team scavenger hunt) 9-11:00pm Back in Unit and Lights Out (varies by age)

Aquatics/Canoeing at Camp If weather permits, swimming is offered daily as part of the camp program. Campers are evaluated on swimming abilities on opening day so staff can keep them safe in and around the water. Certified staff instructs and supervises girls at the pool and the lake. All campers must wear a Personal Flotation Device (provided by camp) while canoeing on the lake.

 5 


Camp Staff Camp staff members are carefully selected for their skills, experience and maturity. We look for individuals with an ability to serve as role models and a genuine desire to work with children. All staff attends training which includes, but is not limited to, camp skills, Girl Scout programs, safety and emergency procedures and human development skills such as dealing with homesick campers, certification in First Aid and CPR, team building and age characteristics of girls. Staff supervising aquatic activities, horseback riding and archery are required to have additional specialized training.

Safety Standards Your child’s health and safety are our top priorities. Each camp meets standards set by Girl Scouts of the USA and conforms to regulations of the State of Florida. Every night the main gate is locked. Local law enforcement patrol daily. Red Cross and Safety Activity Checkpoint regulations are observed during all activities including swimming and canoeing. Health and accident insurance covers all campers. This cost is included in the Girl Scout membership fee. Pre-existing illnesses or conditions are not covered. Camp is staffed by a Level II First Aider or nurse, and staff are First Aid/CPR certified. A local physician is on call at all times.

Medications All medications are to be turned in at the Health Clinic upon your arrival at camp by the parent or guardian.

Physical Exam/Health Form Each girl attending camp must provide a physical health examination form completed after May 1, 2012 .This form must be signed by a licensed physician or nurse practitioner. Proof of a current tetanus vaccination is recommended and a signed parent permission letter, which includes an emergency medical release statement is required. All forms are available in this brochure.

Health Check-In Upon arrival at camp, your child will visit our Camp Health Administrator. At this time we will check her for head lice and check her temperature. If illness, head lice, or other health conditions are present, your child will not be admitted to camp until cleared by a primary physician. If recently treated for such conditions, a note from the treating physician should be brought to camp stating that the child is no longer contagious. During the check-in, you will need to discuss with the nurse/health administrator medical conditions, medicines or any other type of health problem that camp staff needs to be aware of. All medicines are given to the nurse in their original containers and will be kept with a nurse during camp. Medicine will be returned to parent/guardian once camp is over.

Camper Behavior

Campers will be assisted in taking medication only if the medication is in its original container, includes detailed written instructions, is prescribed for her by a physician, or is over the counter and approved by parent or guardian.

My child has special dietary needs If your daughter has special dietary needs, please specify this on her health form AND registration form. You may need to reiterate any special needs to the camp director and/or camp nurse.

6

Camp life is an excellent opportunity for girls to live and work together. Camp is also a community of many people and certain standards of behavior are expected. The director and staff will do everything possible to help girls adjust to camp life. However, the Girl Scouts of the Florida Panhandle reserve the right to send home any girl who consistently misbehaves, willfully disobeys camp rules or whose behavior towards others is unsafe or otherwise unacceptable. No refunds will be given for girls who are sent home due to behavior issues. The girl’s parent/guardian is responsible for picking her up from camp.  6 


Camp Buddies Going to camp with a buddy can make camp more fun, especially for first time campers! Two girls who wish to stay in the same cabin MUST list each other in the Camp Buddy section of the registration form and be in the same camp session. Every effort is made to place the camper with her requested Camp Buddy, although it cannot be guaranteed. Unit assignments are made by the camp director.

New 2013! Camper Email Parents/Guardians are welcome to email your daughter at camp this summer. Emails may be sent to camp@gscfp.org. All emails received by 9pm EST/CDT will be delivered to the camper the following day during the camper’s rest time. When sending your camper an email please use the subject “camper letter.” In the heading of the email please include: camper’s and camp session name.

Trading Post Our camp store, the Trading Post, allows campers to purchase t-shirts, patches, stationery, and other novelties. A credit in your child’s name enables her to make purchases at the Trading Post without the worry of handling money. A Trading Post credit may be left during camp check-in or may be pre-paid with the registration or fee balance. The average deposit is $20. Unused money will be returned to you when your child leaves camp. Cookie/ Nutty Bucks can also be used towards a Trading Post credit. Please do not pack cash in your camper’s bags or send cash in the mail.

Camp Sampler It is recommended that every parent/guardian of every first-time resident camper attend one of the camp samplers. Parents/guardians will be given an orientation on how to prepare their child for a great summer experience, as well as take a tour of camp. All family members are invited to explore the camps and ask questions about the summer programs.

Arrival and Departure Times All camp sessions begin on Sunday, with check-in between 3:00PM and 4:30PM (local standard time). Camp pickup is between 3:00 and 4:30 pm (local standard time) on Friday, unless otherwise stated in your confirmation letter. If you have special needs, please contact the council office at 800-876-9704 or camp@gscfp.org. The penalty for picking up or dropping off campers more than 15 minutes late without prior notice is $15.
