Girl Leadership Opportunities at Camp Tuckerman
AIT 1 Requirements: Must be in 6th, 7th,
or 8th grade and attended a Girl Scout day/evening camp.
AIT 1 leaders will email all registered AIT 1s and their parents,
detailing camp expectations and what an AIT 1 commitment entails, as
well as all the mandatory training dates that they are required to
attend prior to the camp session. AIT 1s are required to attend an
overnight training with other AIT 1s before camp. AIT 1s will learn to
become leaders the first week of camp and will lead the Wide Games for
all of camp at the end of the first week. The second week, AIT 1s will
be assigned to units and help the aide(s) in that unit, who will serve
as their mentor(s). AIT 1s are invited to attend a special teen thank
you outing to see a movie and can choose to spend the night at camp
and have s’mores. AIT 1s can earn Student Service-Learning hours, a
Girl Scout award/recognition, and the Volunteer Presidential Award if
they choose to.
AIT 2 Requirements: Must be in 6th, 7th,
or 8th grade and completed AIT 1 at Camp Tuckerman. AIT 2
leaders will email all registered AIT 2s and their parents, detailing
camp expectations and what an AIT 2 commitment entails, as well as all
the mandatory training dates that they are required to attend prior to
the camp session. AIT 2s are required to attend an overnight training
with other AIT 2s before camp. AIT 2s will cement their leadership
skills by teaching camp skills to each unit in camp. AIT 2s are
invited to attend a special teen thank you outing to see a movie and
can choose to spend the night at camp and have s’mores. AIT 2s can
earn Student Service-Learning hours, a Girl Scout award/recognition,
and the Volunteer Presidential Award if they choose to.
Aide Requirements: Must be in 9th grade or above and
completed AIT 1 and AIT 2 at Camp Tuckerman. Those who have completed
AIT 1 and 2 may be invited back to be aides at Camp Tuckerman. If they
are invited back, they will be contacted by their leaders during the
winter to fill out an application prior to registering. Only those
invited back may register to be an aide. Aides will be emailed the
registration information, aide position description, parental
permission slips for the mandatory pre-camp training and mandatory set
up day training, information about the dress code, their fun overnight
complete with s'mores, and their outing to the movies as a thank you.
All aides are required to attend all the mandatory trainings prior to
our camp session. Aides will get the chance to rank their unit choices
for placements and are expected to be present for the duration of the
camp session. Aides must never leave camp or their unit without
permission from their unit leader or a director. Principal duties of a
Camp Tuckerman aide include assisting unit leaders in program
implementation and enriching the program by sharing expertise with
campers, such as outdoor camp skills, flag ceremonies, simple
songs/games/skits, nature appreciation, and arts and crafts talents.
Aides are also responsible for providing a good example to campers
through actions and attitudes by obeying all rules and customs of camp
– including (but certainly not limited to) exercising camp appropriate
behavior and following proper safety, dress code, and creeking procedures.
