Volunteer-Led Day Camps!

Our day camps are five-day sessions in the great outdoors in communities throughout eastern Oklahoma. A typical day will include opportunities to explore nature, learn songs, play games, get creative with projects, and gain outdoor confidence.

Girl Scouts will sail away to Adventure Island in 2023, guaranteeing a time of fun in the sun!  While shipwrecked, Girl Scouts will learn outdoor survival skills and also dive into the amazing worlds of marine life and island environments through hands on art and science activities! It’s SHORE to be an unforgettable time!

GSEOK’s Day Camps are designed and facilitated by volunteers in your local community.

Volunteers Needed!

GSEOK’s day camps are designed and facilitated by volunteers in your local community. Are you thinking about volunteering for day camp but have questions? Register for our Q&A Zoom Meeting to get answers!

Encourage curiosity and inspire adventurers by volunteering at day camp! No expertise in camping required.

For each day of camp, one adult is needed for every five to eight girls to follow girl to adult ratio. That means adults from each family and/or troop are needed to volunteer to make camp happen. Recruit aunts, uncles, grandparents, college students, past campers, and friends.  The number of girls accepted for camp depends on the number of adult volunteers.

Day Camp volunteers must:
- Have current Girl Scout memberships and background check
- Complete GSEOK’s online day camp training
- Attend in-person site training for specific day camp

All volunteers that meet training requirements and volunteer for the full 5-days of day camp will receive a reduced rate for their full paying girl-relative Girl Scouts.

ACA Accredited / Camp Standards
ACA H Logo

Our council hosts week-long day camps in five locations across Eastern Oklahoma. Proudly, they are all accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA). Developed exclusively for the camp industry, this nationally recognized organization has established high benchmarks for the health and safety of campers and staff, as well as quality program delivery. Trained ACA representatives have conducted an independent evaluation and we have earned this mark of distinction.

Special Health, Medical, or Emotional Needs

It is the mission of Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all campers while creating a successful and rewarding experience. GSEOK will make every effort to provide reasonable accommodations for all campers who might need them.

If your camper has a specific need, please contact our Day Camp Manager  in advance of registration, and we will work together towards a possible solution and/or determine availability.

In order to ensure that all campers receive the requisite care and attention, it is imperative that GSEOK be notified of all camper’s medications, disabilities, and any physical, emotional, or behavioral difficulties on the Participant Health History and Camper Participant Information forms in CampDoc.

Health & Safety

Your camper’s safety is our number one priority. We follow ACA accreditation and Girl Scout safety standards which include, but are not limited to:

- Background checks for all adult camp staff and volunteers
- Certified lifeguards, archery, canoe instructors

Each camp has a health supervisor on staff all day and a first aider for each overnight.

Weather is monitored, and plans are in place for heat, storms, and emergencies. Day Camp Directors are volunteers and trained in child development, leadership development, and emergency procedures.
