Your day begins
Your day begins at 8:30 am with a daily staff meeting in Marilyn’s Place, the children of these volunteers gather in the meadow to play. Your day ends when the buses leave at 3:30 pm.
If you are an adult volunteer that is riding the bus, then please have someone from your unit attend this daily staff meeting.
Your day begins at 8:15am when you arrive at the bus location and ends when you arrive back at the bus location around 4:00 pm (the exact time is dependent on the traffic from camp).
Generally buses arrive at camp by 9:00 am and leave camp at 3:30 pm.
All campers will sing camp songs, play games, take nature hikes, do arts and crafts, learn archery, make ice cream, and participate in other fun outdoor activities.
Each day of the week will have a theme…think crazy socks or dress like your camp name. Campers will receive an email ahead of time to prepare for these.
Tuesday is unit picture day so be sure to wear your Mountaindale t-shirts.
Campers entering the 4th grade and above in Fall of 2023 are invited to stay overnight on Thursday, July 27. After the younger campers leave, the older campers will have dinner, participate in skits, and sleep under the stars on the meadow. Breakfast and lunch for Friday will be provided. A permission slip will be emailed the week before camp.
Mountaindale North Facebook group page:
We will post daily announcements, camp details, any breaking news, and camp photos during our week. Due to GS policies, this is a monitored, private group. Photos posted in the group may NOT be publicly shared on any social media, or printed, for the girls’ privacy and safety. Parents will receive an invitation to join the Facebook group by email.
Health & Safety
Mountaindale North is staffed by a team of 3 nurses who provide first aid, administer medications to the campers, and ensure that all medical protocols set by GSOSW and the local health authority are followed.
Camper medications MUST be in their original containers labeled with the camper’s name, the name of the med, and instructions. A signed note with specific instructions for administering that med must accompany it. Meds will be turned in to the First Aid Station at the beginning of each day, except respiratory inhalers or EPI pens (see below). It is the camper’s responsibility to pick up their medications at the end of the day or at the end of camp from First Aid.
Inhalers/ EPI Pens:
Campers may carry these IF the camper is knowledgeable with their use and has written permission from a parent/guardian. It is the camper’s responsibility to pick up their medications at the end of the day or at the end of camp from First Aid
