Unit Day Camp |
to Rio Olympic This year’s theme is "Off to Rio Olympic Celebration!!". Let’s celebrate the upcoming Olympics that will be held in Rio this summer in August. We will belearning about the spirit of the Games, their history, values, and symbols. Girls will participate in activities related to the Olympic sports. We will be exploring the culture and traditions of Brazil. Wayzata Day Camp 2016 will be held July 25th-28th.
Day Camp is run strictly by volunteers and is open to all girls in our service unit, and who are entering 1st grade up to 12th grade in the fall. Day camp is help at Camp Elk River and consists of 13 units with 14-17 girls in each unit. Caddie-to-be training is offered in 1 unit to girls going into 7th grade. Girls who will be in 8th-12th grade participate as Caddies or Unit Assistants. In addition, campers entering 4th grade and up (in the Fall), may participate in an optional overnight camp out. Confirmed campers will receive an invitation to the overnight.
Care! We will have sibling care available (4 days) at camp for boys and girls, ages 3-10 (must be potty trained) of adults who are 4-day or 2-day volunteers at camp. Sibling campers may attend camp only on the days that their parent is volunteering. The siblings will spend the day on the "resident" side of camp with council camp staff. Preschool age girls and boys do not need to be registered members of Girl Scouts. However, school age girls must be registered and will be placed into a unit.

Volunteer at Day Camp and
spend quality time with the girls!
Can you give a couple of days so your daughter can have a great experience at camp?
We need Adult (including parents, aunts, uncles, older siblings 18-years and older), Unit Assistant (girls going into 11th or 12th grade) and Caddie (girls going into 8th –10th grade in the fall) volunteers to help us deliver the program the week of camp. The number of Girl Scouts accepted at camp is determined by the number of volunteers we have. Our maximum capacity is 225 Campers. If more than 225 registrations are received and/or we do not have enough volunteers to accommodate 225 campers, a lottery will be held. Girls who have a 4-day or 2-day adult volunteer at camp are guaranteed acceptance.
Why Volunteer at Day Camp?
It's a great experience and a wonderful way to make a positive impact in the life of a camper. Parents and adults who have volunteered in the past have told us it's the best time they had all summer.
We Need You!
Wayzata Day Camp is completely volunteer run by parents and adults in our service unit. You don't need any experience with camping, outdoor skills, or nature - just a desire to help put on a great program for the campers.
Where Are You Needed Most?
We have the greatest need for adults who can volunteer at camp for four days and work with campers. We must have two adult volunteers in a unit, and at least one needs to be a four-day adult volunteer to ensure continuity for the girls. Everything will be prepared for you, with older girls in charge to provide assistance and guidance! The staff and directors will do everything possible to help girls adjust to camp life. However, as an approved day camp of the Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin River Valleys, the Wayzata Service Unit Day Camp reserves the right to send home from day camp any girl who consistently exhibits unsuitable behavior, endangers the camp community, or whose behavior towards others or herself is not reflective of the Girl Scout Promise or Girl Scout Law. The girl’s parent/guardian is responsible for picking her up from day camp. In this case there is no refund.
