Girl Scout Virtual Camp – Camp Sunshine 2.0
July 20, 2020 @ 9:00 am - July 24, 2020 @ 12:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Monday, repeating until July 31, 2020
Camp Sunshine 2.0
With the launch of Camp Sunshine 2.0, girls can access a one-of-a-kind virtual camp experience from their own homes. Girls will learn real camp skills, and meet girls from across the state and country, all through a safe virtual platform. Girl will create a “flat camper,” an avatar that looks just like them, to keep at home along with a “Build-A-Camp” kit for them to cut out, color, and assemble a 3D camp for their flat camper. Girls will interact with GSNCA staff and camp counselors to learn new skills and see their flat campers participating in activities at camp like canoeing, horseback riding, climbing, archery, and more.
Girls will stay engaged and get out of their chairs by learning real camp skills like how to paddle a canoe, how to safely hold a bow and arrow, how to tie knots and belay in rock climbing, and how to hold the reins on a horse. Girls will also create art in the outdoors and make fun crafts, play games, sing camp songs, make friendship bracelets, and make a camp meal.
Just like at traditional camp, campers will be assigned to a “cabin,” which will allow for girls to interact with a smaller group for a more individualized experience. Assignments for each group will based off of grade and age.
Upcoming dates for Camp Sunshine 2.0 are July 20-24 and July 27-31. Camp lasts from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. each day.
The price for one week of Camp Sunshine 2.0 is $60 for non-members, $25 for GSNCA members, and $35 for Girl Scout members from other councils. The price includes a flat camper and a Build-A-Camp kit. There are several add-ons available. For $25 you can get a Camp Activity Supply Box, which includes gimp to learn knot-tying, “snacktivities” like a s’mores kit, and supplies for an age-appropriate craft, like making a puppet or a barometer. For $50 you can choose a Progressive Specialized Activity your girl is interested in, like STEM, art, or primitive camping, and receive extra programming time plus a kit with all the supplies she’ll need.
