Day/Twilight Camp Program
Throughout June and July, Girl Scout volunteers host a variety of day or twilight camps with unique themes and activities. Girls may learn about sustaining the environment, campfire cooking skills, learning new games or sports, outdoor survival skills, tie-dye art or earning some of the newest badges. Day/Twilight camps for 2013 will focus S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering, math). Girls will get the chance to experience the outdoors with a scientific adventure.
Perfect for those younger girls that might not be quite ready to stay the night away from home, Day/Twilight camp is a wonderful outdoor experience, rooted in Girl Scout traditions. Day and Twilight camps offer a unique experience aside from the usual troop activities. Although some camps may have access to a building for part of the camp day, the majority of the time is spent outdoors.
Girls don't have to be a Girl Scout to attend Day/Twilight camps - ALL girls are welcome. (An additinal $15 membership fee will be added to registration.) Bring a friend to show her all the fun that Girl Scouts have!
Day/Twilight camps are usually four hours a day for 4 – 5 days. Girls will have the camp experience but go home each night.
Adults can join in the fun by volunteering to help and your help is very much needed to make it happen for the girls. The Girl Scout daughters of Day/Twilight camp volunteers attend for free! Camps are staffed entirely by volunteers. The number of volunteers determine the number of girls who can attend the camp.
All you have to do to volunteer is to submit the Summer Volunteer Application, complete a successful Criminal Background Check and Play It Safe training. iinformation on training will be sent once approved as a volunteer for camp.
GS-TOP camps are licensed by the State of Texas to meet the highest standards of safety set by Girl Scouts of the USA and the Texas Youth Camp Safety Act.
