Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania (GSEP) launched its first-ever virtual summer camp titled [email protected] with Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania ([email protected]). General registration is now open.
[email protected] will include five week-long sessions beginning July 6 through August 7. Each session is designed by age level, has a unique theme, and is led by GSEP’s camp staff. [email protected] is a mix of live interactive sessions, independent work, recorded materials, supplemental activities, and a box camp kit to provide each Girl Scout the interactive fun camp experience at home.
“At GSEP, we look forward to camp each and every year. After reviewing our operations, we have determined for the health and safety of our girls, leaders, and staff to move our in-person camp season to a virtual experience this summer,” said Kim E. Fraites-Dow, Chief Executive Officer of GSEP. “One adventure at a time, we continue to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. We hope to see many familiar faces virtually this summer as we continue to learn, grow, and face this challenging time together.”
Each week-long session costs $50 to $75 per camper and includes a GSEP camp kit shipped directly to your home or available via contactless pick-up, over three hours of daily virtual and unplugged activities, exclusive swag and goodies, and secured access to the GSEP Zoom Camp experience platform. Daisy and Brownie programs for girls K-3 are facilitated half-day sessions, with morning and afternoon options while Junior (4-5 grade), Cadette (6-8 grade), Senior (9-10 grade), and Ambassador (11-12 grade) programs are full-day sessions. Older Girl leadership programs like Program Aide and Counselors In Training will also be offered…providing an important continuity to progressive leadership experiences at camp. All campers and their families will connect on Thursday evenings for a virtual “All Camp” campfire, featuring a slideshow from the week, a beloved Girl Scout Camp tradition.
“[email protected] is designed with the camper in mind,” said Maureen Maier, Head of Operations and Vice President of Girl Experience. “The sessions will provide girls with the opportunity to learn, connect, have lots of FUN and lead. While we can’t be together in-person this summer, we have developed a program to stay connected and keep the Girl Scout Camp tradition alive.”
