Summer Camp for ALL Girls

Don’t forget, Girl Scout camp is for ALL girls, not just current Girl Scouts. If you or someone you know are interested in spending part of the summer outdoors, in the Columbia River Gorge, with activities like rock wall climbing, whitewater rafting, backpacking, canoeing, arts and crafts, and nature study, sign up! Non-Girl Scouts pay an extra $10 — that’s it!

PLEASE Register ASAP!

Please, encourage everyone you know (girls age 7-17 and parents/guardians) to register for Camp Arrowhead as soon as possible.  We are at the point where we need to decide if sessions will be cut due to low enrollment.  We need your support!  Below is a message from resident camp committee chairperson Kari Rothi.

Camper registrations have been sluggish and we could really
use an all-out effort from everyone to encourage people to
sign up for camp. The sooner the better, as we are going to
have to start cancelling sessions soon. So if you or
someone you know are considering camp this summer, get your
registrations in ASAP. Along those some lines… if we do
cancel sessions, that will open up space for troops to do
some troop camping this summer, like we had last summer.
So, if the regular sessions aren’t working for you,
consider troop camping 🙂

We’d also like to encourage people to recruit a friend to
come to camp with them. Remember that GS camp is for
everyone, not just current members. A registered camper can
get $5 off the price of her own registration for every girl
she recruits to come to camp. Recruit 5 friends and save
$25! Recruit your whole troop and save even more!! The $5
off coupons are available on the council website. Click on
the Camp Arrowhead announcement from the homepage to get to
the CAMP page, then look for the pink rectangle.

Life is Good…

Meet the Camp Director!

From the GSCRC website:

We are pleased to announce the hiring of our new Camp Director, Leah Kalish!

Leah, aka Sprout, has worked in Girl Scouting for over 10 years at camps throughout the United States. She has also had the opportunity to work for North Atlantic Girl Scouts Overseas in Germany, as well as volunteering at Our Cabana, one of the WAGGGS World Centers in Cuernavaca, Mexico. As a result, Leah is quite familiar with GS program goals, procedures and expectations; she has a diversity of experience that will allow her to think creatively about problems that arise and to offer solutions that others may not have thought of.

Outside of Girl Scouts, Leah works in Environmental Education, currently serving as a Site Supervisor for Outdoor Science School during the academic year. We are very lucky to have her on board and she is excited to join the team at Camp Arrowhead for what is sure to be a great summer season!

Register Now — Online or On Paper!

Camp brochures have been mailed out (we received ours yesterday), and registration is open! We need campers to help make our grand re-opening great!

Campers can register using the form in the brochure, or online at http://www.girlscoutscrc.org/CMS/programResources/camp.aspx. Non-Girl Scouts are welcome to register, too — they simply pay an extra $10 and become Girl Scout members for the summer.

Financial aid is available for up to 30 percent of the cost of camp. Cookie credits can also be used toward camp fees.
