Contact Your Camper

Girl Scouts River Valleys provides three ways for family to stay in touch with their campers. You can send mail to your campers, we have care packages that families can purchase to send to their campers, and we partner with Bunk1.com to allow parents to send online messages that are delivered as notes on their campers’ pillows.

In order to allow campers and staff fully enjoy and benefit from camp, we do not allow campers to make or receive phone calls and do not allow campers to have cell phones.

Send Mail to Your Camper

Everyone loves to get mail at camp! Please write to your camper frequently during her stay. Happy mail is the best type of mail to send.

Please do not send food to your camper as it attracts bugs and other critters. If a camper receives food, it will be kept in the kitchen until departure.

Mail should be addressed as follows:

Camper Name followed by:

Camp Elk River
10775 237th Avenue
Zimmerman, MN 55398
Camp Lakamaga
12303 Lakamaga Trail North
Marine on St. Croix, MN 55047
Camp Northwoods

Camp Singing Hills

Camper Care Packages

Whether it’s her first or tenth time at camp, nothing is quite as comforting as getting a camp care package on her first night away. Order one of our care packages today and it will be delivered to your camper the first night she is at camp.
