Camp Addisone Boyce FAQs
What are the hours of operation of camp?

Monday through Friday, 8:15 AM-4:00 PM.

Will there be a counselor on the bus?

Yes, counselors board the bus at the first stop each morning and get off at the last stop in the afternoon. Please make sure to have up to date emergency contact information in Camp Doc prior to the start of camp for the hours of 7:00-8:15 AM and 4:00-5:00 PM.  

NOTE: We will contact you if there are any problems with an over-requested bus.

When will the bus schedule be available?
What does my daughter need to bring to camp?

Your daughter will carry her bag with her all day, so be careful not to over pack.  Every day she will need to bring a reusable water bottle, lunch, swimsuit, towel, water shoes (not flip-flops), close-toed shoes, sunscreen, and bug spray.  Camp runs rain or shine so please check the weather and send your daughter to camp with appropriate attire.  

Will my daughter be in the same unit as her troop?

Possibly, our unit sizes are small and sometimes whole troops cannot be placed in the same unit. Our staff members work very hard to make sure everyone has a buddy and will help shyer campers who may need assistance in making new friends.

One Week programs vs Two Week programs

The 4th and 5th-grade one week and the 4th and 5th-grade two-week programs are two separate programs; the girls will be in different units and have different activity schedules.  6th-8th-grade one week and two-week programs are also separate.

Snacks and Birthday foods

If you would like to send in treats for your camper’s unit please contact the camp first. We can give you correct numbers of girls/counselors in the unit as well as information about any food allergies or dietary restrictions. 

Campfires and Overnights

We’ve changed the way we do overnights. Juniors will no longer be eligible for the weekly overnights.  Instead, we have decided that ALL campers in 4th & 5th-grade sessions are eligible for the weekly campfire, with a pickup time of 9:00 PM.  This includes a cookout for dinner.  We wanted to open the campfire to as many of our campers as possible. 

Girls 6th grade and up have optional overnights each Thursday. Please note that girls in Camp Aides & CIT’s may also stay overnight on Thursday.  There is a late night pick up option after campfire at 9:00 PM.

Why does my daughter’s counselor have a “camp name”?

All staff will select a “camp name.” This is a tradition dating back to the beginning of camping in Girl Scouts. We use camp names for several reasons. A camp counselor guides your camper in a gentle manner, and her camp name helps distinguish her from a teacher, parent or another authority figure. Camp names add to the magic of Girl Scout camp that has been passed down for generations. Please don’t be surprised when camp staff members introduce themselves as “Chuckles” or “Disney.” Be assured, the Camp Director (Tiger) knows everyone’s real names. If you need to know, you can simply ask.
