                                       Camp Fee Structure
   Your Girl Scout Camps are supported by the Girl Scout Cookie Program and camp fees. This year each overnight camp
session has two fees listed: FEE and DISCOUNTED FEE.
   In order to be eligible for the Discounted Fee, a camper must be a registered Girl Scout with Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta,
Inc., and have participated in the 2011 Girl Scout Cookie Program. If the camper does not participate in the Girl Scout Cookie
Program in 2011 and is not listed by her troop leader in the eBudde database, the higher fee is applicable. Your initial invoice
will list the higher fee until we verify your camper has participated in the 2011 Girl Scout Cookie Program.
   Summer camp registration is just around the corner – February 3, 2011! We hope you are making plans to support the Girl
Scout Cookie Program and send your favorite Girl Scout(s) to camp with the advantage of the Discounted Fee.

                                Is your daughter ready for camp?
                   Are YOU, as a parent, ready to send your daughter to camp?

    Q:      How do I determine when is
            the right time to send my
    daughter to camp for the first
    time?
    The biggest question to ask is, are
    YOU ready as a parent to let your
    child go? It helps to be clear on why
    you are sending her to camp.
    Whether it is to make new friends,
    learn new skills or gain
    independence, it starts with your
    goals for a positive camp
    experience. If you are upbeat about
    the upcoming experience, your
    child will reflect this same attitude. If
    your daughter has been able to
    successfully spend the night at
    Grandma’s or a friend’s house, she
    is most likely ready for an overnight
    camp experience.

Our goal is for each girl to discover
more about herself while
connecting with other campers and
camp staff. Many first time campers
and camper parents focus on the
activities offered at camp and make
the decision to attend camp based
on canoeing, horseback riding, field
trips, etc. While activities are
important aspects of camp, that’s
not what camp is about. Camp is
about making some of the best
friends of your life. Campers not
only make some of their best friends
at camp, they learn what real
friendship is. Camp is a social
experience – learning to live, work
and play together over the course of
two-fourteen days. Whether your
daughter arrives at camp alone or
with a friend, she will leave camp
with new friends and experiences.
Over the past five years, 99% of our
campers shared they made a new
friend at camp on their evaluations.
