  • Cookies = Camp Register online: sdgirlscouts.org/camp Contact us: camp@sdgirlscouts.org, (619) 298-8391 Earn camp by selling cookies! During the Girl Scout Cookie Program (Sunday, Jan. 28- Sunday, March 11), you’ll learn five key life skills (goalsetting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics). Plus, you can earn rewards for reaching certain sales goals — including free camp sessions!
  • Sell 650+ boxes of cookies to earn a free five-day session at day or resident camp.
  • Participating in the cookie program independently (without a troop)? You can use the Cookie Bucks for camp fees! Selling 650+ boxes? Remember:
  • Not all sessions are eligible for the five-day camp reward. Look for the cookie symbol in this brochure to see which ones are.
  • Many camp sessions fill quickly. If you have a specific camp in mind, please reserve your spot as soon as possible with a $25 fee. (That deposit is refundable if you meet your 650+ box goal; previously earned Cookie Bucks can apply as payment.)
  • Rewards earned are announced after the close of the cookie program. If you have reserved a cookie-eligible camp, your reward will automatically be applied and your deposit will be refunded. If you have not reserved an eligible camp, you will receive a code you can use to register online.

Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, you can support the camps you love. Camp fees cover only a portion of actual camp costs. We make up the difference with our share of cookie funds, providing fun and challenging activities, well-trained staff, healthy food and safe facilities for your summer adventure. It takes this many boxes to raise the funds to provide you with camp: 2018: The Summer of the Girl Scout camps are fun ... and they’re also places where girls grow by leaps and bounds. Campers discover new interests, take important time off from school and social pressures, and challenge themselves in a supportive, all-girl environment.

Girls have a say in the activities their groups will participate in, so no two sessions of camp are the same. Each activity — from Art to Ziplining — is designed to support these lasting outcomes: 4 GIRL SCOUTS SAN DIEGO CAMP GUIDE | 2018 GIRL SCOUTS SAN DIEGO CAMP GUIDE | 2018 5 4 Art supplies (one girl, one week) 8 First aid training (one counselor) 10 One archery target 37 Challenge course helmet and harness 132 Pool cleaning and maintenance (one month) 13,858 Horses and hay for a summer Want to go to camp for free ... and give back to Girl Scouts? It’s not too late to participate in the 2018 cookie program! To learn how, email cookies@sdgirlscouts.org.

STRONG SENSE OF SELF Girls have confidence in themselves and their abilities, and form positive identities. POSITIVE VALUES Girls act ethically, honestly, and responsibly, and show concern for others. CHALLENGE SEEKING Girls take appropriate risks, try things even if they might fail, and learn from mistakes. HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS Girls develop and maintain healthy relationships by communicating their feelings directly and resolving conflicts constructively. COMMUNITY PROBLEM SOLVING Girls desire to contribute to the world in purposeful and meaningful ways, learn how to identify problems in the community, and create “action plans” to solve them.

Camp staff All camp staff members are 18 years or older, and selected for their maturity and enthusiasm. Most were Girl Scouts campers as youth, and many return year after year. Staff is trained in CPR, first aid, child development, and activity leadership.

Extended care We offer extended care at no additional cost for campers dropped off and picked up at the Balboa Campus.

Drop your camper off as early as 7:30 a.m. and pick her up as late as 6 p.m. We are unable to provide extended care for camps at the Escondido Program Center and our offsite locations. Camp buddies Campers may register to be placed with one “buddy” for the week. Enter buddy information during online registration. Because day camp programming is age-specific, we can only accommodate buddy placement for girls within one grade level of each other. Confirmations Once you register, you’ll receive a confirmation email with a link to all required paperwork and information about what to expect from camp.

Your camp director may also send a letter with additional details and reminders the week before your session. Campers with special needs With sufficient notice, we can accommodate most campers with special physical, medical, emotional, social or dietary needs. Contact campdirector@sdgirlscouts.org in advance with specific considerations, and fill out the camp health forms in detail. Day Camp 101 Teen Mentor Program Day Camp Aides (DCAs) and Counselors-in-Training (CITs) are campers in grades 7-12 who support younger girls in partnership with adult staff. These teen mentors help lead activities and guide younger campers.

Current training is required for all teen mentors. Grades 7-12 (DCAs): DCAs help campers with crafts, games and songs, assist unit counselors, and learn about leadership from Counselors-in-Training and Girl Scout staff. All first-time DCAs must complete Teen Leadership Training, where they practice leading typical camp activities and learn personal leadership development, what to expect from a day at camp, and tips and tricks to motivate and guide younger girls. Grades 9-12 (CITs): As seasoned older girls, CITs mentor DCAs and younger girls, and take additional leadership opportunities such as planning or leading activities on their own.

Prerequisite: Must have held one of the following leadership roles: DCA, Leader-In-Training (LIT) at Camp Winacka or Camp Whispering Oaks, or an equivalent leadership role with three or more hours of training and 20 hours of leadership time working with younger girls.

CIT Next-Level Teen Leadership Training is required for all first time CITs. It includes skill review from Teen Leadership Training, conflict resolution and working collaboratively — plus, advanced tips and tricks to motivate and guide younger girls, as well as planning and leading typical camp activities like crafts, songs, games and ceremonies. Step-by-step to becoming a DCA or CIT As DCA/CIT positions are very popular, we limit registration to two sessions per girl. We do not accept buddy requests from DCAs/CITs. 1) Register online for camp. Placement is first-come, first-served. 2) Register online for in-person training.

(DCAs/CITs who completed training previously are assigned an online refresher course in place of training.) 3) Complete in-person training or online refresher course before camp starts.

4) Attend camp-specific training, as assigned. Some day camps include additional training sessions prior to the start of camp. If the camp includes separate trainings, the camp director will set and communicate training dates. Volunteer-Led Technology Goddesses D B J C Grades K-6 Drive robots with smart phones, shoot and edit digital pictures and videos, and enjoy crafts and outdoor activities at this STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) camp. Do programming and work with circuits in computer sessions for your age and skill level, and see demos of advanced technology. Other highlights include a sleepover for grades 5 and up, and a Friday field day.
