The Tag unit was created expressly for the young children of our staff. Our volunteer staff often have children who are either too young to be left home on their own and/or not old enough for one of our units. This is the only co-ed unit, and ranges in ages from 6-12 for boys and 6-8 for girls. This unit allows our staff peace of mind that their children are safe and having loads of fun, while they enjoy a unique and fantastic camp experience all their own.
As many of the tag campers are quite young, the unit is designed to allow for special bedtime tuck-ins at night. Our experienced and competent tag staff provide such a fantastic camp session that Tags often do not want to return home at the end of the week!
Tags enjoy all the normal camp activities, including crafts, archery, swimming, canoeing, campfires and hiking. The Tags also participate in all-camp events, and their skits and songs are perennial favorites for everyone! Their unit space is large enough to toss a football or build a fort, and they have their own campfire circle. They also have a nap time (or quiet time for older tags) to make sure they have enough energy to last the whole day.
Tags is staffed by young men (college age and beyond) who have grown up at Two Sentinels, spending many summers under the watchful eye of the directors and their own staff moms. They've also completed intensive training programs, and passed all necessary background checks by the Girl Scouts of Northern California. These young men are fabulous mentors for our young Tag boys, and they're joined by volunteer staff, generally moms of older campers, who provide the nurturing and parental experience necessary to help our very youngest campers enjoy an unforgettable week!
