Is Your Daughter Ready for Camp?
Your Score: 0
You received 1 point for each question you answered A, 2 points for each question you answered B, 3 points for each question you answered C.
11-16 Points: Talk with your child more and see if resident camp is the appropriate choice for her this year. If your camper is really interested in going, but scores low on this quiz, review your answers and see what you can do to change her score. Can you teach her to tie her own shoes? Can she try some overnights with her troop or some friends to practice being away from home? Can you go with her to the library so she can learn about bugs and wildlife she may encounter so she's not so frightened? If not, you may want to try Girl Scout day camp as a first time Girl Scout camp experience.
17-25 Points: It seems like you have a pretty ready camper on your hands. A great way to make sure she's prepared is by taking the Virtual Tour together. You may also want to attend an open house where you can both ask questions about camp. Invite her to be part of the planning process by looking through the web pages together and picking the camp that fits your schedule and her interests. For more tips and tricks for camp preparedness, look for the camp planning guide in your confirmation packet.
26-33 Points: Your camper seems very prepared for resident camp! Encourage her to be part of the planning process by looking through the website together and picking the camp that fits your schedule and her interests. Invite her to take a helping role in preparing for camp. With your help, she can shop for supplies, pack her own bag and pre-address stationery to use at camp. See you this summer!
