What will Camp look like during the session?

Each morning we will have a daily virtual check in with your camp counselors, and your girls will get to interact as they choose camp names and make their nametags for the session.

Morning check-ins are a great way to share your activities/projects and connect with your counselor and other campers.  Girls will complete one activity per day, with one of the days being an instructor-led, live Zoom session. Other activities will be pre-recorded for your ease of access when your girl is ready. 

Each week’s session will conclude with a live themed All Camp activity, where girls can dress for the weeks’ theme, and share and learn campfire songs.

Each session will also include a bonus activity that girls can complete on their own when they are ready, as well as weekly videos of secret camp spots and camp tours. Stay tuned for weekly camp staff Q&A sessions, so that you can get to know your camp staff even more!

Unboxing Camp!

Each session, Girl Scouts Louisiana East staff will guide you through There’s no Place Like Camp *AT HOME* via zoom activities, morning check-ins, daily how-to videos for activities. In your package, you will receive printed materials such as a calendar and step-by-step instructions for badge work, the corresponding badge, as well as relevant materials for all of the weekly activities.
