How will I know what my camper is supposed to be doing each day?
Each camp kit contains level-appropriate day-by-day guided activities for the session, a chore chart, and a schedule to keep her on track.
What is in the camp kit?
A list of materials you will need if any, a camp t-shirt, camp logo cup, lanyard and name badge, craft supplies, challenge patch list, songs, games, and other fun surprises.
What type of technology will I need for my camper to participate in the online community?
Two different online platforms will be utilized; the Band App and Zoom. Both platforms can be used via phone, tablet, and desktop computer. User access to Band requires a phone number or email address. You will need internet access or cell service. To participate in video Zoom calls, a video camera is suggested, but not mandatory.
Can my camper participate if they don’t have access to the internet or an electronic device?
Yes! Your camper can complete all the activities in the box without interacting with the online platforms and while we encourage participation, it is not mandatory.
How soon will my daughter need to check-in for online sessions?
Once online registration is closed, the invitation link will be sent to each participant using the email provided during registration. Click the link 5-10 minutes before the start of each session.
Will I need to participate with my daughter?
All activities are designed to be age-appropriate, so your camper should be able to participate on her own. However, she may need your supervision and assistance with certain activities or craft projects. We recommend an adult stay close by during online sessions to ensure the camper is behaving appropriately and all computer rules are being followed.
What about my camper’s online safety?
The council and camp staff will supervise all online sessions. Your camp session is a private group, and access is by invitation only. Photos, videos, and comments posted will not be shared. Internet Safety guidelines are in place for all campers.
How much screen time will my camper have each day?
Online sessions will last 20-30 minutes in the morning and 20-30 minutes in the evening.
When do I pick up my daughter’s camp kit?
You will receive an email with the details about when and where to pick up the kit 5-7 days before your camp session. If you choose to have your kit shipped to you, those will arrive 3-5 days before your camp session and will be an extra $5.
Will my Girl Scout earn a badge/patch?
Your camper will complete half the requirements for the GS Love the Outdoors Challenge patch during the first camp session and complete the requirements during the second camp session. If she does not attend both sessions, she will have the opportunity to earn the patch on her own.
Do I need to be a registered Girl Scout?
No, any girl can register.
