Virtual Summer Camp Sessions

Registration is open!

   

We are reimagining summer camp to be sure our girls can experience the richness of a camp experience even with the limitations of this crazy summer. The fun of connecting with your camp friends and the joy of receiving snail mail combine to create a one-of-a-kind experience for girls. Camp is Calling for you!

Camp is Calling offers five, week-long sessions for each age group, each with a unique theme, led by our creative camp staff, delivered to your home.

Each week, you’ll receive a box for your session. Inside you’ll find surprises and fun-filled activities, including STEAM-lovers, art enthusiasts, and nature aficionados! Plus, your invitation to join our online camp community app to connect with your camp friends. But don't worry—this virtual camp encourages limited screen time and instead, focuses on providing opportunities to explore new skills at home. You can register for a one-week session or as many weeks as you’d like.

Spend the week with us as you make new friends, explore, play games, and have fun!

Camp is Calling is $100 per weekly session, per girl/box and includes:

  • Session instructions, materials, and supplies to participate in activities and experiences for the specific session.
  • 1-2 hours of virtual and "unplugged" activities specific to your session each day for groups of 25.
  • Zoom into a traditional Morning Meeting complete with Flag Ceremony and Girl Scout traditions, afternoon Flag lowering with an end of day wrap-up and two All Camp Evening Programs with all of the week’s virtual campers.
  • Exclusive swag and goodies
  • Secure access to the GSGATL zoom app, a secure digital space that is computer, phone, and tablet friendly.

Camp experiences will be led by the Camp Teams from Meriwether, Misty Mountain, and Timber Ridge. This summer will be like no other because you get to travel virtually to all three properties to experience unique traditions at each of our amazing camps.

Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta thanks our Camp Champion sponsor, Accenture, for their support of our virtual camp programs this summer. Their support will give all girls, especially those from our most vulnerable communities, an opportunity to enjoy an authentic camp experience from home.

Easy registration is available for GSGATL members through the Doubleknot Program Event Software. All girls are welcome to participate. If you are not a current member of Girl Scouts a $25 membership fee will be added to your final balance. Payment options include credit card, 2019 or 2020 Cookie Dough (must be mailed in with a copy of your invoice) or financial aid. Please note: Financial aid is limited; decisions will be processed within 2 weeks of submission. The link for the financial aid application is in your confirmation after you register for your virtual camp session.
