Summer Day & Evening Camps

open-sign_32

Day and Evening Camp registration opens February 13, 2019, 7 AM

Ready to register? Go to eBiz

Financial Assistance is now available for Summer Day and Evening, please complete the survey.

Even with an action-packed summer planned, there's a summer day or evening camp that'll let girls try something new while going home each night.  

From outdoor skills to STEM, crafts and nature exploration, we have camps for every interest and age level sprinkled across our region. Each camp is unique, and run exclusively by a dedicated team of specially trained volunteers who work year-round to make this enriching opportunity possible.

Day and evening camp programs encourage girls to explore the world around them, challenge themselves, and build self-esteem while having a blast at camp. At camp, girls learn songs, play games, make arts and crafts, gain outdoor skills and work towards badges, all while being encouraged to feel comfortable and be their amazing selves. Most programs occur outdoors and encourage girls to participate in totally awesome activities like nature hikes, team building exercises, high adventure, and more. Some programs even offer optional overnights and field trips too!

No matter which camp you choose, you’re sure to have your best summer yet! Scroll down to explore all day and evening camp programs.

Payment

When registering for camp, be prepared to pay the fee in full. Payment plans for day and evening camps are not available. Camp fees vary by camp and by program. The differences in the fees represent the wide variety of programs available across the region. Financial assistance is available, click here for more information.

Volunteer at Camp

You’ll have a lifelong impact on girls, develop your own leadership expertise, gain new skills and tools, and connect with fellow volunteers. There’s no cost to volunteer, and most camps guarantee entry for campers of full-time volunteers; other camps may offer a reduce rate for registration.

Roles include …

  • Unit Counselor: Guide a group of campers through pre-planned activities with the help of another counselor or a teen mentor.
  • Program Volunteer: Teach a skill, or plan and lead a special activity like crafts, gardening, or sports, etc.
  • Health Supervisor: Medical professionals needed! Provide first aid and manage camper and staff safety.

Each camp handles volunteer registration differently. If you are interested in volunteering at a day or evening camp, please contact the camp directly using the volunteer contact listed under each camp’s description.

Who Can Attend Camp?

Most of our Day and Evening Camps are open to girls completing grades K-12. Check the individual camp description for specific grade requirements.

We welcome non-Girl Scouts to attend camp. Any girl who is not a current member is welcome to attend camp, but they must register and become a Girl Scouts Nation's Capital member. The annual registration fee is $25. You must register 24 hours before selecting a camp, through the online events registration site, eBiz. To register as a member, click here. If you have questions about the registration process, have problems, or need to update information please email registration@gscnc.org.

Boys are eligible only at certain camps and must be children of volunteer staff.  Ages vary with each camp. Preschool age children are only eligible at certain camps and must be children of volunteer staff.

Camps can always use adult volunteers too! Our day and evening camps are run by qualified, enthusiastic, and compassionate volunteer camp directors. Parents, guardians, Girl Scout troop leaders and other qualified adults also frequently volunteer their time to help girls have a great camp experience. Each camp handles volunteer registration differently. If you are interested in volunteering at a day or evening camp, please contact the camp directly using the volunteer contact listed under each camp’s description.

Placement

Placement is not automatic for all camps. Some camps place campers based on first come, first served, while others use a lottery system. See the specific camp’s description for more details. Most camps guarantee entry for campers of full-time volunteers – consider volunteering!

Lottery – How it Works

Campers registering for a lottery camp must pay in full at the time of registration. Paying for, and completing registration, does not guarantee the camper will be placed into the lottery. If the camper is not selected through the lottery, a full refund will be issued only after the camper turns down the wait list. For specific dates and fees for lottery camps, please consult the individual camp’s webpage.

Camp Confirmations

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email or letter.

If you have more than one camper, please complete a separate request for each child. All application information is confidential.

Camp Behavior

Providing a safe, healthy and positive experience for every camper is top priority. At camp, we expect campers will act in accordance to the Girl Scout law and be “considerate and caring” of others as well as “be a sister to every Girl Scout.” Please encourage your campers to help create a safe camp community by speaking to staff if they see unacceptable behavior among other campers in their unit, cabins or during activities. The staff are there to ensure every camper is having a safe and fun experience at camp.

The director and camp staff will do everything possible to help campers adjust to camp life.  However, the Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital reserves the right to send home from camp any girl who consistently exhibits unsuitable behavior or endangers the camp community, or whose actions towards others are unacceptable. The camper’s parent/guardian is responsible for picking her up from camp in these cases. There will be no refund.

Leadership for Teens

Teen Girl Scouts are encouraged to participate in leadership roles at day and evening camp. Many camps offer Aide in Training (AIT) and/or Aide programs which give Girl Scout Cadettes through Ambassadors the opportunity to learn valuable, hands-on leadership skills as well as earn volunteer hours towards Girl Scout Journeys, badges or higher awards. Camp Aides and AITs must be available for all required trainings. Trainings and training dates vary from camp to camp. Please refer to each camp’s description or website for more information.
