Rainbow PAs

This unit is a teaching and leadership unit.  All of the units in camp come to here to learn basic outdoor skills.  The PAs in this unit are given the opportunity to work with all levels of girls and to practice their leadership skills on a board basis.

Rainbow Lead PAs (Additional application and interview necessary)

You must be entering 10th grade to apply to be a Lead PA for the Rainbow unit.

The Lead PAs in this unit will help to plan what the unit will be doing from the skills to the activities.  They use their experience as leaders to work with the other PAs in the unit to schedule and hone their own leadership skills.  They are the point of contact between the PAs and adult leaders in the unit.  Being a Rainbow Lead PA we are expecting a two year commitment to allow for development of the program and transitioning to new Rainbow leads.

ODS (Outdoor Skills) PAs (Additional application and interview necessary)

You must be entering 10th grade to apply to be a Lead PA for the ODS unit.

The PAs in the Outdoor Skills unit plan, execute, and lead the activities of this unit.  They work closely with their adult leaders to utilize the resources available to them and to make sure that the required material for this unit is covered.  This is a very involved unit, and to ensure the continued development of the program and the transition to new PAs, it is an expectation that girls who request to be a PA in this unit commit for at least 2 years.

PAIT (Program Aide In Training) PAs (Additional application and interview necessary)

You must be entering 10th grade to apply to be a Lead PA for the PAIT unit.

The PAs in the PAIT unit are leaders teaching girls to be leaders.  This is the “last stop” for girls working through the progression to become PAs.  This is unit is very important because this is where the girls get the training they need to be PAs at camp the following year.  The PAs in this unit are expected to be strong leaders that are well organized, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable in the skills necessary to be a PA.  They will work very closely with the adult leaders in this unit to utilize resources, assure that training material is covered, and girls are still having fun in this hard working unit.  Since this is a very involved unit, it is important that PAs who apply to unit understand that they will be asked for at least a two year commitment in order to ensure the development of the program and allows for transitioning to new PAs into the unit.
