What is Camptastic?
Camptastic is a Service Unit sponsored event, open to current Girl Scouts and girls wishing to register for Girl Scouts in order to attend. It is an opportunity for girls who would like to experience a traditional camping overnight event at Camp Tahigwa. Girl Scout values will be present throughout the week, and non-Scouts are welcome to join us by registering for Girl Scouts. Camptastic is on pace to sell out this year! Register today to save your space!
What's New for 2014?
We are pleased to present several new sessions, including Healthy All Stars Adventure, Tahigwa's Gone MAD (Music, Art and Drama), Night Owls, Tower of Power, and the Tahigwa Games. In addition, we have two new programs to allow girls to prepare to transition to Camptastic volunteers, and to allow adult Pals to join their campers in the fun. We are pleased to present PALtastic and CITastic! Check out our Session Description Page to learn more.
As always, Camptastic is 100% volunteer run by outstanding Camp Tahigwa alumni and other Girl Scout volunteer leaders. This year, we are proud to share that Camptastic volunteers will receive their Overnight Readiness and Camp Skills trainings at camp, so once camp is over, they have all the training required to take troops camping on their own!
Every Girl, Everywhere.
A Message from the Camptastic Planning Team
Dear Campers, Parents and Friends,
At Camptastic, we believe that a resident-type camping experience based on Girl Scout Values allows girls to grow in courage, confidence, and character in ways that are only possible at camp. This is why we will continue to provide Camptastic programming that is affordable and accessible for girls as long as Camp Tahigwa remains open to Girl Scout groups. Camptastic has no paid employees--everything from building this website to cleaning up after the girls leave camp is done by volunteers. Our volunteers are a group of highly motivated volunteers with decades of experience in camp leadership, non-profit management, and youth development.
We always want Camptastic to be affordable to girls, and will be accepting Cookie Credit, Camp Credit, Juliette Bucks again this year. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
before registering to use these for payment. We also have financial assistance available this year. Please contact us for an application! Because we are all volunteers and have no office space, the best way to reach us is via email, but if you need to contact us via phone, please call 630-957-8003.
Thanks to our excellent volunteers, we are pleased to be able to expand our program choices to include two programs never before offered at Camptastic. We hope you enjoy them! If you have questions about Camptastic, please do not hesitate to contact us
As always, we are looking for adult volunteers to help make our programs possible, or donations of supplies for camp. If you are interested in getting more involved, please do not hesitate to reach out!
