2nd Annual Oakville Service Unit Campership
The mission of the Oakville Service Unit Camp Scholarship or "Campership" is to provide a camp experience to Girl Scouts that might not have the opportunity to attend a Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania camp. By attending camp, girls are able to discover valuable life lessons that can be developed throughout her life.
Any registered Oakville Service Unit Girl Scout is eligible to enter the annual essay contest.
All applications and corresponding essays will need to be returned by February 19, 2015.
The service unit will award three (3) camperships in the amount of $250.00 made out to the recipients' Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania camp of choice. The campership awards will be divided by age: Daisy/Brownies, Junior/Cadette, and Ambassador/Senior. The older girls will have the option of using their campership toward approved Girl Destinations. All Recipients will have the option of using their campership for the Oakville Service Unit Day Camp. If that option is selected the award will be for the cost of Day Camp. The recipients of the camperships will be announced at the March 2015 Service Unit Meeting.
All essays will be reviewed by the selection committee and will be awarded based on originality.
Each essay should include: what the girl wants to discover through a camp experience and how she will connect what she discovers with other girls in her troop and service unit.
The original funding was received through a donation made by the Church of the Incarnation which was made possible through an endowment by one of their parishioners.
The Service Unit TEAM decided that the best use of the funds would be to create a "Campership" to help defer the cost of attending a Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania Camp. The Campership will be sustained by holding an annual spaghetti dinner and silent auction. This event will be organized by volunteer girl scouts of all ages in which the winners of the campership will be honored.
