Camps for Seniors and Ambassadors

DSCN3590

Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts have so many options at summer camp. They can go to our most adventurous camp sessions to hone their outdoors skills, they can go on extended trips, and they have amazing options with Troop Camps (new High Adventure Troop Camp!) and Family Camps too. Whatever the camp, Seniors and Ambassadors are bound to make lifelong friends and build skills that will come in handy as they grow into adulthood. Register your Girl Scout for camp now! Review camp sessions. Here is a list of open sessions at our camps at this time:

Adventure camps are a hit with Seniors and Ambassadors! They provide a level of challenge and skill mastery in a community atmosphere of support.
TR27 TARDIS
TR39 Expedition Wild! (12-days! Perfect for the girl that never wants to leave camp!)

Is horseback riding your thing? Seniors and Ambassadors can take a Colorado horseback adventure. In this trip, girls will take a 3-day, 2-night adventure on horseback. They’ll then spend 3 days on a working ranch at cowgirl camp. One day will be spent whitewater rafting.
TT01 Colorado Horseback Adventure

Three-day camps offer Seniors and Ambassadors a taste of camp without the huge time commitment! We know Cadettes often have busy summers, but there is still time for camp!
SH34 Wizarding World of Beasts (3-day)
TR45 Tri Wizard (3-day)

Leadership sessions enable trained Program Aides and Counselors In Training to further their skills leading girls and programs at camp. Program Aide should be completed during the Cadette years and then allows girls to register as a PA at Overnight Camp once they are entering 9th grade. CIT’s must complete a training their first year, and then continue their leadership with CIT 2 the second or third year after that. Our CIT 1 sessions are full at this time.

Why Send My Daughter to Girl Scout Camp?

camp.email.older

Well the answer is not simple. It is so much more than to just “have fun.”

Based on our 2015 survey results the BEST part about summer camp for our parents was #1: “my camper’s experience” and #2: “my camper learning independence and self-sufficiency”

We strive at Girl Scouts of Colorado’s summer camps, to make your child’s experience at summer camp the whole package, full of campfires, friends, songs, caring camp counselors, activities, fun and personal development.

It has been shown that summer camp helps to increase the qualities within girls such as: communication, self-awareness, self-sufficiency, independence, respect, confidence and a sense of adventure.

Five Great Reasons Parents Send Their Kids to Camp” from the Sunshine Parenting blog, is about the impact camp has on children regarding their social skills. Research they had done reported that 95% of children surveyed said they had an overall improvement of social skills. And unsurprisingly, all campers (100%) reported making new friends at camp, with 99% of campers’ parents reporting the same.

Learn more about relating a child’s happiness & increase in social skills to their time at summer camp in this American Camp Association article.

Camp offers opportunities which can be difficult to come by-the chance to shoot an arrow, to hike to the mountain top, to sing around a campfire while making s’mores, to ride a horse, to go fishing, to go rafting, to fly across a zip line and to make lifelong friends.

So, why send your daughter to camp? Because it’s GREAT for her mind, body and soul.

Register your daughter now for Girl Scout camp!

19210842171_b054435133_o

How will your girl spend her summer? Will she cook s’mores around a campfire with the new friends she’s made at Girl Scout Camp?

Check them out, so you’ll know what to sign-up for when registration opens on Wednesday, December 9, 2015 at 9 a.m. You’ll want to register on this day if your girl wants to attend sessions that traditionally sell out quickly. For example:

  • Horseback riding

You’ll also want to register early if your girl wants to attend any of our sessions which are “back by popular demand.” Those include:
