Camperships
campership

Girl Scouts of Silver Sage is committed to providing opportunities for all girls to experience camp.  If your family or Girl Scout would benefit from financial assistance, please select “Financial Aid” as your payment type when registering for camp.  A registration deposit of $50 is required from every camper to reserve your spot at camp.  If you do not receive the campership amount requested, you can receive a full refund of payments, including the $50 deposit.

Once you register for camp with “Financial Aid” as your payment type, you will receive an email from Silver Sage with a link to the Campership Request Form.  You will need to complete this form for your request to be reviewed.  Each request is considered on an individual basis and decisions are based on the girl’s need and availability of funds.  We ask that Program Credits ("Cookie Dough") and earned rewards (e.g. "2022 Adventure Credits") be utilized whenever possible. There is a limit of one campership per girl. 

Campership requests are reviewed mid-April and all applicants will be notified of their application's status by April 30th.  Any requests received after the review period will be considered until funds are depleted.

I have registered my camper for camp, when should I expect to receive the family information packet?

We are anticipating sending out the family information packet on the week of April 25, 2022. This packet will include all camp paperwork, directions to camp, more information about our program and the emergency telephone number for camp. Family information packets are sent out via email so please check your MyGS account to ensure you have the correct email listed.

Do campers earn Girl Scout badges at camp?
All campers will be receiving a special 2022 camp patch for their Girl Scout uniform. If campers complete full badges while at camp, they will also be sent home with their completed badges. Not every session will be completing Girl Scout badgework.

My girl isn’t in a Girl Scout troop, can she still go to camp?
Yes! All girls are welcome to join any of our camp sessions. When you register for camp, you will also be prompted to complete your Girl Scout membership.  Memberships cost $40 to $55 a year and allow girls to attend fun activities throughout the school year in addition to camp. Financial aid is available.

My camper has special needs or accommodations, what is the best way to tell camp staff?

We want all of our campers to have the most successful week at camp. If your camper has any special needs, learning differences or need for accommodations, please include that information in our camp registration in the “Special Circumstances” section. The more details and information you provide for us, the better we can accommodate your camper. Our Outdoor Program Manager may reach out to families with campers who need accommodations.

At school, my camper receives one-on-one support from an aid. Can an aid or parent attend camp with my camper?

Yes! If your camper receives support from a one-on-one aid at school, we encourage a trusted adult to accompany your camper at camp. Please contact Customer Care at customercare@girlscouts-ssc.org prior to enrolling in camp. Our Outdoor Program Manager will reach out to your family about your camper, their accommodations and any other information we need prior to your camp session.

Can my camper have her cell phone, smart watch, tablet, gaming device, pager, or other electronic device at camp?
We do not allow any electronic devices including phones at camp. By disconnecting and leaving all electronics at home, girls are able to create friendships, build independence, connect with nature and discover new skills. In case of an emergency at home, please call or email the Camp Director and we will connect you with your camper.

What if my camper has food allergies or dietary restrictions?
We strive to provide all campers with delicious and healthy foods regardless of dietary restrictions. When registering for camp, please list all your camper’s dietary needs, allergies and severity of allergies so we can prepare for her arrival. Please speak with your camper about advocating for her dietary needs when she is at camp.

All medications that are brought to camp will be given to the qualified camp health staff on drop-off day. All prescription and over-the counter medications need to be sent  in the original bottle with the doctor’s name, dosage, and usage  instructions on the bottle, if applicable.

Where do the Camp Counselors sleep?
Our Camp Counselors sleep in a cabin/ tent in the same campsite area as their camper however, they do not sleep in the cabin/tent with the campers. This allows campers to build independence with a trusted adult nearby.

Can my camper be put in a cabin with her buddy or other girls from her troop?
Yes! When registering, please list up to three campers who you would like your camper to be buddies with. While we try to ensure that all buddy requests can be honored, we are sometimes unable to place buddies if the age gap is too large (for example, a 7 th grader buddy requesting a 3 rd grader). If friends, sisters or troopmates are put into another group, they will be able to see each other during meals and evening programs.

Our Philosophy
Summer camp is a special place where magic appears, friendships are made and girls learn not only about themselves, but about the outside world in which they live. It’s a place where girls are able to challenge themselves mentally and physically in a safe and fun environment. The Girl Scouts of Silver Sage’s summer camps, Camp Alice Pittenger (CAP), Camp Echo, and Camp Ta-Man-A-Wis (TAM) hires over 40 individuals from all over the United States and internationally, to bring the magic and fun our campers crave. Safety and supervision are top priorities at CAP, Camp Echo, and TAM. We highlight respect for self and others, trying new things and giving girls an opportunity to accept and be accepted. Our staff believes in the Girl Scout Promise and Law.

Our Training
Safety and supervision are top priorities at Camp Alice Pittenger, Camp Echo, and Camp Ta-Man-A-Wis. Staff consists of adults who are carefully screened and selected based on their abilities to work with youth in an outdoor setting. During this time, staff will be trained on Girl Scout Basics, Site Use, Day To Day at Camp, Camp Programming, Outdoor Skills, Health, Safety, and Emergency Procedures, and Behavior Management.
