The 2019 Camp Theme is…

Earlier in October, we asked all our membership for camp theme suggestions for 2019. Not only did membership hear the call, they delivered! After reviewing nearly 200 incredible suggestions, our committee selected:

2019 Camp Theme Announcement

Thank you to Ariana DiNezza, a Brownie, for your excellent suggestion! Ariana’s entry will be featured on all our camp publications for the following year. Even better, it gives you the chance to engage with us. Any time you post about camp, be sure to add #GirlScoutCampLife to share loud and proud what girls can do.

We’re still in the process of planning out all the camp details, and our theme of #GirlScoutCampLife is helping to guide us to another fantastic year of camp!

What is S.P.P. camping?

A Girl Scout’s summer is filled with opportunities to have the time of her life at camp. We offer so many great programs for girls entering kindergarten through 12th grade in the fall and want to make sure we have something for everyone. For some girls and troops, this looks a little different than traditional resident or day camp.

 

SpecialtyProgramsProvided (S.P.P.) Camping is a great way for troops to get the best of camping together and experience specialized programs, like ropes courses, archery, and boating. The troop leader is responsible for most camp-related considerations with GSWNY providing the specialty programs and times.

In order to host troop camp like this, leaders must have either their Level I (for lodge camping) or Level II (for cabin and tent camping) camp training. Additionally, an adult with current first aid and CPR certifications must attend.

Specifically, our camp provides the boating and archery programming while leaders provide everything else, including meals. Our lakeside facility includes a like, central dining hall, infirmary, shower house, lodges, cabins, platform tent units, and an archery area. Your troop can choose from options at either Camp Seven Hills or Camp Piperwood.

For troops in the Buffalo area, Camp Seven Hills has two sessions available for S.P.P. Camping. Girls in grades K-12 are welcome to camp with their troops Friday, July 20, through Sunday, July 22, and Wednesday August 1, through Friday, August 3. The cost per girl is $35.

For those in the Rochester area, Camp Piperwood can welcome your girls in k-12 from July 27 to 29. The cost is $45 and the girls will get to experience archery and the ropes course!
