During each Resident Camp experience, your Girl Scout can visit our Trading Post and purchase fun camp items like water bottles, stuffed animals, books, patches or nut-free snacks.
I often have parents ask me how much money is appropriate to leave with their camper to use at the Trading Post. Most of our families leave between $10-20, just the right amount for a girl to choose a couple of items that catch her eye!
New this year, our campers can donate their change from the Trading Post to an important camp fundraising initiative, Mattress Madness! By donating remaining change from the Trading Post, families can help ensure our future campers have a good night’s sleep.
Each year, our Council hosts more than 10,000 girls and adults at overnight camp. That much wear and tear means it’s time to replace our mattresses. The Mattress Madness funding campaign, introduced in November 2016, aims to replace mattresses at camp and give our girls’ bunks a fresh new look and feel!
A little leftover change can make a big different to our camps!
