How Many Girls Camp?
What percentage of GSNEO girls are using the camps?
2008-2009: 19,258 out of 34,908 girls used the camps (55.2%).
2009 -2010: At the April General Assembly meeting, GSNEO reported there were 36,935 girl members, with camp usage roughly 50.6%.
However, these numbers are not exact because GSNEO does not know how many girls camped more than once. Nor do they know how many applied but were excluded due to programs or sites being filled.
The 2009 -2010 camp usage figures were presented in council publications and currently on the GSNEO website as:
How many GSNEO members participated in camp programs? (numbers reflect 2009 - 2010)
• 1,000 girls at 3 resident camps (2.5 % of girl members)
• 1,452 girls at day programs/camps at 5 GSNEO camps (3.6% of girl members)
• 13,397 troop campers (girls & adults) at 7 camps, throughout the year (25.2% of total members)
