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. We are looking forward to celebrating five years of courage, confidence and character at camp!
2015 New from Friends of Camp Tahigwa
We are once again pleased to present several new sessions, including Animal Adventure, Treetoppers, Camp Like a Girl, and Wacky, Weird World. After a successful first Pal program, we will be bringing back PALtastic for another year, as well as our CIT program, CITastic. Check out our Session Description Page to learn more.
In addition to our Camptastic offerings, we are pleased to be bringing back Women of the Wild, our spring weekend for adult women. 2014 was a great success, and we are looking forward to doing it again in 2015! Bridge to Bismarks will be back this fall for year three, with some upgrades to make it the best year yet.
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! We are constantly looking for more volunteers and planning committee members--if you are willing to lend a hand, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
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, and Juliette Bucks again this year. To use these as methods of payment, you MUST mail us a paper registration form and mail them in at the time of registration--or we will not be able to be reimbursed by GSEIWI. 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.
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!
