This summer, girls ages 5-17 can participate in a variety of activities during the day and return home in the afternoon or evening. Day camps typically start around 9 a.m. and twilight camps around 6:30 p.m. Each day/twilight camp offers a wide variety of activities for girls to enjoy together. Typical offerings include practicing outdoor skills (fire building, cooking or knot tying), making arts and crafts, singing songs, playing games, as well as stargazing, dancing, hiking and playing sports. Girls may also earn badges!
Ready to go to camp? Here's how to register for a day/twilight camp:
2. Don't forget to mail the completed registration form (one per child) with your check or money order (no cash) to the address listed with the camp information! Mark the envelope “Day Camp.” Please do not send registration forms to the Girl Scout Center unless specified. This will delay the registration process.
3. Make all checks and money orders payable to GSSJC--and that's it! After a camper is registered, a confirmation with more specific information will be sent prior to the start of camp. Girls are placed on a first-come first-served basis. Children of camp volunteers will have priority placement. Each camp’s capacity is noted in its listing. Girls will be placed as long as there is adequate adult leadership. If a girl cannot be placed in the camp of her choice, parents will be notified.
Adults can go to a day/twilight camp too!
At this time, camps are busy recruiting volunteers for many staff positions. Adults interested in volunteering any amount of time should complete the Adult Volunteer Interest Form (found on pg. 10 of The Golden Link, March/April issue) and submit it to the appropriate camp registrar. Adults working with campers must be registered with GSUSA and have a criminal background check on file and have completed the child protection test. The day camp director provides training of all day camp staff.
We can't wait to see you there! For more information on how you can join us for day/twilight camp this summer, go to daycamp.gssjc.org!
