What is a Day Camp?

Girl Scouts Heart of Central California summer camps are the place for adventure, fun, excitement and learning. With a variety of programs and camps available, there is something here for every girl. Day camps are three-day to five-day themed events for Girl Scouts usually held during the summer. They take place during the day or in the evening and are a great way to make friends, learn new skills and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Camp/Program Aides
For many camps, girls ages 11-17 play a big part. There are two ways you can help:
Camp Aides- Girl Scouts who have not completed program aide training and help in non-leadership roles.
Program Aides- Girl Scouts who have completed Program Aide training and who assist at camp in leadership roles, such as leading songs and games and helping in a specific unit.

Adult Volunteers
Volunteers are the vital ingredient that makes our camps possible.  All camps must maintain a specific ratio of adults to girls appropriate to each grade level. This is why adults are needed as camp volunteers.  Each day/short term resident camp provides training for volunteers prior to camp. Some camps offer discounted camper fees for the children of full-time camp volunteers who have completed camp training. Some also offer boy and/or preschool units for the children of full-time camp volunteers who have completed training. Preschool-aged children must be toilet-trained.

Non-registered Girl Scouts
Girls who are not Girl Scouts are encouraged to join the summer fun! Non-Girl Scouts just need to include an additional $15 membership fee, to be paid with the camp registration.

Cookie Credits
Day Camp registration fees can be paid for with 2010 Girl Scout Cookie Program Cookie credits. Anyone wishing to use Cookie credits from 2009 must register for camp prior to the expiration of April 30, 2010.  Only 2010 Cookie credits can be used after May 1, 2010.

All refund requests must be received in writing three weeks prior to camp (excluding medical emergencies). Since supplies must be purchased prior to camp, full refunds may not be possible.
