Here are some Girl Scout camp experiences:
Resident Camp includes girls who have finished
kindergarten and older. Girls camp for three to fourteen days and
nights (the average is five nights). Girls sign up as individual campers
or go with a buddy. The girls and their counselors/volunteers plan
activities, taking advantage of the resources available at the campsite.
A council may sponsor summer resident camp with a specially trained
staff and facilities.
Day Camp includes girls in kindergarten and older who
typically camp for three or more consecutive days for four hours or
more. The occasional overnight may be offered. Girls may sign up as
individual campers or go with buddies. The girls and staff plan and
carry out activities. Day camping is usually council sponsored or
approved, with the council training the staff and approving the
facilities and site. A day camp may be at a council-owned site or a site
contracted by the council.
Weekend Camp includes girls in kindergarten and above, and
typically lasts for two days and one overnight. Weekend camp
experiences are planned and carried out by a group of girls and their
volunteers, using council-approved sites. Some weekend camp experiences
are designed to include staff with program expertise—a good choice for
girls and adult volunteers who may want support with their camp
Travel/Travel Camping is planned and carried out by a group of experienced
campers—girls and adults. The group travels by foot or human power and
uses motorized or non-motorized transportation to move from one site to
another over a period of three or more nights. Motorized transportation
is usually a bus, van, or automobile but may also be an airplane, boat,
bicycle, train, or combination of vehicles.
