Guam Girl Scouts Summer Camp

Guam Girl Scouts Summer Camp

Guam Girl Scout will be offering a “Summer of STEM” camp during the month of July. Each week will be a different age level: Week 1 (July 2 – 6) Kinder and 1st; Week 2 (July 9 – 13) 2nd and 3rd; Week 3 (July 16 – 20) 4th and 5th; Week 4 (July 23 – 27) 6th through 12th. Our camp runs from 9:00 – 3:30 every day. You will be assisting our camp facilitator with the activities scheduled during the week. You do not need to participate in every week, but all camp aides must attend a training on June 26 and 27 prior to assisting with camp. 
 

You can participate in as many weeks as you would like. Here is the breakdown of possible hours that you can potentially earn service learning hours for:
Week 1 (July 2-3,5-6): 8:30 - 2:30 - 6 hours x 4 days = 24 hours

Week 2 (July 9-13): 8:30 - 3:30 - 7 hours x 5 days = 35 hours

Reflection Instruction:
We would like students to think about the importance of education and the importance of volunteering. You learn something new every day! Our camp gives girls the opportunities to learn and experience new kinds of activities that may not be as easily available in a classroom. Our camp is not possible without volunteers to assist with our girls. You are a big part of our summer camp!
