4.3.2. Resident Camp

Resident Camp

Have you been looking for a resident camp for 2018? Well, look no further…it’s here! This year, Girl scouts of Southern Illinois has once again partnered with Touch of Nature (on Little Grassy Lake) and Camp Ondessonk (in Ozark, IL) to give our girls some amazing resident camp opportunities!

Girls attending the mini-session (4 days/3 nights) or week long session (7 days/6 nights) at Touch of Nature will stay in cabins with electricity and air conditioning. Girls will use flush toilets and covered showerhouses during their time at camp. Camp activities may include swimming in Little Grassy Lake, canoeing, hiking, archery, environmental education, rock climbing (older girls), high ropes (older girls), camp crafts, badge work and, of course, Girl Scout songs and camp fires!

Girls attending the week long session (7 days/6 nights) at Camp Ondessonk will stay in rustic, 3-sided cabins. Girls will use latrines in their unit but have access to flush toilets and showerhouses nearby. Camp activities may include swimming in Lake Saint Isaac, canoeing, archery, riflery, handicrafts, hiking, horseback riding, challenge courses, overnight campout under the stars, Girl Scout songs, camp fires and an all-camp marathon to end the week!

Financial assistance is available for those who qualify. If you would like to help another Girl Scout have the opportunity to attend camp, please contact us and make a donation to our campership fund.

Counselor in Training (CIT)

The CIT Program is an opportunity for older girls (grades 9-12) to start their leadership journey. At camp, you will participate in various camp activities while learning about becoming leaders, different leadership styles and camper dynamics. Girls must take CIT training before coming to camp, where they will complete the second portion of their training (trainings can be found on GSSI’s online calendar throughout the year).
