2018 TAC Opportunities

choose-your-adventure

TAC is a progressive camping experience where troops choose their activities and adventures at Camp Stonybrook. Whether this is your first troop camp experience or you’ve been doing this for years, TAC is right for you. Enjoy making crafts, hiking, swimming, creeking, outdoor living skills, building teamwork at our low challenge course (fourth grade and above) or working on badge or Girl Scout Journey activities. If you’ve been to TAC a few times, try an adventure trip to enhance your session.

Note: Some program dates and details may have changed since the printing of the 2018 Camp Guides. The following listings have the most up to date offerings.

Important TAC Information

Planning Your TAC Activities

TAC gives girls the opportunity to plan their camp adventure with the help of their leaders. It is important that the girls and adults work together during the planning process.

Check out the TAC activities offered at Camp Libbey and Camp Stonybrook:

Accommodations and Meals

There are three types of sleeping accommodations available:

Cabins: Sleep in a dormitory style building, which includes a common living area, kitchen, fire ring and bathroom. Leaders stay in the cabins, but are not permitted to sleep in the same room as the girls. Girl Scout Brownies have priority for building space, but are placed in tents once buildings are filled. Older girl troops may be placed in cabins only after all Girl Scout Brownie troops are placed.

Platform Tent Units: Sleep in a unit of large canvas tents on wooden platforms. Each tent includes four cots and mattresses within easy access to the kitchen shelter and fire ring. Leaders stay in the unit, but in their own tent separate from the girls.

Meals are served family style in the dining hall. Troops have the option to request cooking out over the fire.

Health History

All TAC participants (both girls and adults) must provide a current health history (within six months of dates of attendance). A physical exam is not required to be completed by a doctor.

Troop Leader Orientation

Leaders are not required to be Basic Camp Certified, but at least one adult from each troop that has never attended TAC should attend the webinar on May 2, 2017, 6:30 - 7:30. Registration coming soon!

Troop Leader Supervision

Troop leaders accompanying the troop are responsible for maintaining Safety Activity Checkpoint ratios and adequately supervising the girls. The camp staff provides camp expertise and leadership for the program activities while Junior Instructors/CITs are on hand to assist the staff and troop leaders with activities. Troop leaders must provide supervision of girls in the below ratios.

Two adults for every:

  • 12 girls enteringsecond and third grade 
  • 16 girls entering fourth and fifth grade 
  • 20 girls entering sixth grade and above 

There must be a minimum of two adults at least 19 years in age or older in attendance with every troop at TAC at all times. These required adults attend camp without paying a fee. Any adult attending who is not required to fulfill Safety Activity Checkpoint ratios must pay the full cost. The priority is to accommodate as many girls as possible. Please limit adults to the required ratios. Arrangements can be made for girls with special needs. Adults may not bring “tag-a-longs” (adults and leader’s younger children). Attendees must be registered Girl Scouts attending camp with their troop or group.
