FAQs Boys and Preschoolers

This sounds like a great camp! How do I enroll my son and/or preschooler?

That's easy! Become a full-time adult staff volunteer and your son can accompany you to camp each day!


What do I do with my "non-Girl Scout" children if I become a staff member?

Ports of Prince William offers both a Preschool Unit and a Boys Unit.  Teen-aged sons can also work as Program Aides with the Boys Unit.  Girls of Girl Scout age will be placed in the regular units with girls their own age.  These units are open only to the children of our full-time volunteers.


What is the Boys Unit?

The boys of our full-time staff volunteers participate in many of same activities as the girls but tailored to their interests.  For instance, we select special craft projects for the boys.  The personality of the unit changes slightly each year and that is dependent on the ages of the boys who attend.  Our youngest boys are Kindergarten aged (if boys are under 5, they do better in our co-ed Preschool Unit).  Our oldest boys have been as old as 7th graders.  We do know that the boys tend to beg their moms to return as volunteers to camp next year -- so we know they have fun coming to our Girl Scout Camp!


What is the Preschool Unit?

We have a co-ed Preschool Unit for the preschoolers aged 2 - Kindergarten.  Preschoolers must be potty-trained and willing to spend the day in the Preschool Unit (they can't go with Mom to the Junior Unit).  The Preschoolers do many of the same activities, but tailored to their interests and attention spans.


Is there a fee for the Boys or Preschoolers?

The cost is $40.00, half of the regular registration fee for on-time registrations.
