BIRMINGHAM — Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama (GSNCA) will offer virtual camp this summer, in order to offer safe options during the coronavirus pandemic. Camp Sunshine 2.0 will be open to Girl Scouts and non-members.
The camp will take place in the home of participants. They will learn camp skills and meet other girls from across the state and country through a virtual platform.
Participants will use an avatar known as a “flat camper” and will assemble a 3D camp with a “Build-A-Camp” kit.
“Girls will stay engaged and get out of their chairs by learning real camp skills like how to paddle a canoe, how to safely hold a bow and arrow, how to tie knots and belay in rock climbing, and how to hold the reins on a horse,” said Allie Hulcher, Communications Manager of Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama. “Girls will also create art in the outdoors and make fun crafts, play games, sing camp songs, make friendship bracelets, and make a camp meal.”
Dates for Camp Sunshine 2.0 are July 20 – 24 and July 27 – 31. The camp lasts from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. each day.
The price for one week of Camp Sunshine 2.0 is $60 for non-members, $25 for GSNCA members, and $35 for Girl Scout members from other councils. The price includes a flat camper and a Build-A-Camp kit. There are several add-ons available.
