Summer Camp, Reimagined with Girl Scouts


*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 08/14/2020
Just because we can’t come together in-person, doesn’t mean that summer is cancelled! We’re offering a variety of ways to stay connected and get outdoors. It’s camp, reimagined with The Summer We Camped At Home!

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately.

Girls in Girl Scouts and non-Girl Scouts ages 5-17 can be registered. The weekly cost including the home-delivered Camp Activity Kit is $60 and non-Girl Scouts will also need to enroll in Girl Scouts at the time of camp registration for $25 - financial aid is available. See details below.

All of our offerings will be held from July 6-August 15 and will be based on the following THEMES:

  • July 6-10: Earth
  • July 13-17: Arts
  • July 20-24: Adventure
  • July 27-31: Friendships
  • August 3-7: Exploring
  • August 10-14: Action 

Camp Activity Kits

Similar to a subscription box service, we’re offering six, week-long sessions, each with a unique theme, led by our creative camp staff, delivered to your door.

Each week we’ll be offering a unique and age-appropriate box for:

  • Daisies and Brownies
  • Juniors
  • Cadettes-14YO

We’re also offering similar programming for Program Aides and CITs

The Camp Activity Kit Experience includes:  

  • Materials for 3 themed activities and invitations for 3 live virtual sessions (M,W,F) to go through the activities with Camp Counselors and the other girls in their group. Please see the Interactive Zoom Session information below for more.
  • Invitation to a virtual “Dining Hall” experience on Tuesday. The traditional camp Dining Hall experience is filled with songs, laughter and more. Girls will be able to pull up a chair and join in on the fun.
  • Automatic invitations to the live Virtual Campfires on Thursday nights. Of course you’ll also receive a mini song book (new songs every week) in your box!
  • Younger girls will have the opportunity to write “pen-pal” letters to our Camp Mascots (Molly the Whale, Rosie the Rabbit and Bernadette the Turtle)
  • Juniors and up will have virtual bunk chats. We know girls are missing their camp friends and we’ll be facilitating times for them to connect. 
  • Instructions for self-led activities including: 3 Outdoor activities, a weekly camp tradition and outdoor cooking recipe.
  • And no camp experience would be complete without a friendship bracelet!
