Camp Sunshine Staff Program Orientation @ Camp Ginger Cascades
Sep 14 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Camp Sunshine is a leadership program for girls in grades 7-12. These older Girl Scouts work together as a staff to plan an overnight camping experience for younger girls in grades 3-5, whom have never been a Girl Scout and/or have never had the opportunity to experience camp. This REQUIRED orientation will give you an overview of the program and detailed job descriptions of all the leadership positions available for the event. The girl staff designs the activities, learns techniques to work with younger girls, expands their leadership and organizational skills and gains self-confidence in themselves by helping others. Camp Sunshine staff are selected by application only and applications MUST be received by October 1, 2014, to be considered.

If selected, girls MUST be available to attend the following meetings and training to be held at Camp Ginger Cascades: October 26, November 16 and January 11 from 3-5 p.m. and a required training March 21-22, 2015, with the actual event April 10-12, 2015. Please Note: If you are applying for a position on the leadership team, there are additional meeting dates that you MUST attend.

Leaderfest @ Camp Ginger Cascades
Jan 10 @ 8:30 am – 6:00 pm

REGISTER NOW!

Leaderfest is a one-day fun, casual and relaxing A.W.E.S.O.M.E. event for volunteers – whether you are a volunteer working with girls, other youth groups or even adults. There are no opening or closing ceremonies, no gifts to bring and no special dress. Just a chance to sit back, enjoy yourself and make new friends! You can also extend your weekend by staying overnight Friday and/or Saturday at camp. New this year is a change of season. While we have traditionally held Leaderfest in the fall, we’ve decided to enjoy this relaxing event after the holidays! Learn more about the event!

While you enjoy this great leadership retreat, your school-age children (both girls and boys) can enjoy the Sing In the New Year childcare, a day of singing and activities around camp 8:30 am to 5:30 p.m. on the same Saturday for a fee of $10. Register for childcare at Leaderfest Childcare: Sing In the New Year. If they are not already linked to your account, you can utilize your ADD FAMILY MEMBER button within your eBiz account to add your child. You can then register yourself for Leaderfest and then register your child for Sing In the New Year.
