What Day Camp is Like
GCNWI day camps run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. You can register your camper for before-camp and after-camp programs or bus transportation at select locations.
Campers bring lunch every day except when there is a cookout.
In many of the communities we serve, talented and enthusiastic volunteers offer local day camp experiences for girls. Led by volunteers throughout our council, these day camps explore the communities around them in a variety of sites, including state and local parks, forest preserves, and Girl Scout camps.
Each volunteer-led day camp provides unique themed and specialized activities, and many provide leadership opportunities for older girls. All volunteer-led day camps are supported by council staff and meet standards regarding program, budgeting, risk management, health, and safety.
