We are looking for Girls that are currently in Grades 6-12 that are interested in a Girl Scout Leadership Experience
We will be guiding the girls through Program Aide (PA) training in Preparation for

Bonney Lake Day Camp
 held at Swiss Park, July 10-14, 2023
This Year’s Camp Theme is “Dino Land"

Upon completion of this Leadership Experience including the week at Day Camp, girls can earn the Program Aide (PA) pin. If Girls have already earned their PA pin they can work on earning the Volunteer in Training (VIT) pin.

The cost is $80. This includes all the training, a 2-day retreat, the week at Day Camp, PA Overnight (last day of camp), a camp patch and photo. The training and camp are 100% planned/organized and ran by adult Volunteers. We are always looking for adult volunteers, please let me know if you’re interested.

If your Girl Scout is interested, please email me at with your name and your Girl Scouts name and the email address(s) you would like added to the communication emails. I will add you to the list and in January I’ll start sending out information about our 1st meeting.

Feel free to email, call, or text with any questions.




Program Aides ​ ​Program Aides are role models for younger Girl Scouts. They have an opportunity to deepen their understanding of what leadership development means to them and simultaneously, get excited about guiding younger girls to be leaders in their own lives and in the world.

Volunteers In Training are girls that have gone above and beyond learning the skills taught at camp and are ready for a Leadership role at Camp. This is the next steps in Leadership and they help plan and teach the Program Aide Training.
