What About Camp?

Camp provides exciting activities that may include arts and crafts, swimming, singing, canoeing, outdoors skills, and games. Please see individual camp for information on what ages are eligible.

Several camps are for all ages (K – 12) this year. For most camps girls who will complete kindergarten through 5th grade by the end of the 2013- 2014 school year may register.

Girls who have completed 6th – 11th grade will be eligible to attend as a Program Aide. Program Aides are older girls who want to work with young children, are willing to accept responsibility, and attend a pre-camp training session. Registration cost includes T-shirts and patches.

  • Day Camp – a daytime camp experience where girls register individually and are placed in units. The participants and unit staff plan and carry out activities in addition to participating in all camp activities. Day camp is council sponsored. The council approves the staff, the facilities, site and program.
  • Overnight camp – the same as day camp but with opportunities for girls to stay overnight. It will typically last for two or three days.
  • Staff – All camps are run by well trained volunteers with necessary certifications required for girl safety.
  • Transportation – Bus transportation is available for several camps at a cost of $15 per rider. See each camp's information for details. If bus transportation is not available at your camp, consider having an adult from your family volunteer to drive for the week. Ask your troop leader which girls are attending camp from your troop and arrange a carpool.
  • Insurance – All registered girls and adults have accident coverage while participating in camp. This coverage is supplemental to your personal insurance. Girl Scouts of Louisiana – Pines to the Gulf will cover the cost of extra insurance for all volunteers, Pixies, and Tadpoles.
  • Financial Assistance – Limited financial assistance is available for any girl attending camp. An application form is located on the council website. The deadline to apply is May 1, 2014.
  • Pixies and Tadpoles – Pixies are girls and boys under 6 years of age. Tadpoles are boys 6 -10. Pixies and Tadpoles are required to stay in their assigned units during Day Camp. Pixie and Tadpole units are designed for children of DAY CAMP VOLUNTEERS ONLY ON THE DAYS THAT THEY VOLUNTEER.
Limited financial assistance is available for any girl attending camp. Deadline to apply for financial assistance is May 1, 2014.
