Girl Scout camp is an amazing and structured experience for girls where they decide what they want to do as a group with their counselors. Campers are supervised 24 hours a day and stay in groups called patrols or units. A typical day at camp looks like this:
- Wake up
- Eat breakfast
- Several hours of chosen activity
- Eat lunch
- Rest time in the heat of the afternoon to read, write home, and relax
- Several more hours of chosen activity
- Eat dinner
- Large all camp game, campfire, special ceremonies/skits
- Time for bed!
Girls cook over a fire at least once, shower every day and swim (weather permitting). Along with that, girls do as many of the following activities as time and weather allows.
- Bird/Tree/Plat Identification
- Creek Stomping
- Fire Building
- Knives and Knots
- Challenge (ropes) Course
- Weather Preparedness
- Arts and Crafts
- Sports and Games
- Ecological Education
- Water Games/Slip and Slide
Camp session specific activities include trip planning, forensic science, basic chemistry, advanced cooking skills, horseback riding, robotics, photography and backpacking.
Campers stay in a variety of lodging but most stay in platform tents (tents with wood flooring, cots and sometimes hard roofs). As girls choose, they may pitch a tent or sleep under the stars for a night or two.
Girls always stay with other campers and counselors sleep a few yards away.
Food at Camp
Balanced (yet kid friendly) meals are served family-style with options for those that may not care for a particular food served. We serve many campers with special dietary needs (vegetarians, gluten-free, diabetic) and picky eaters.
During the day, snacks are provided.
This camp store sells souvenirs, jewelry, t-shirts, stuffed animals, toys and more! Each girl will visit the store at least once. Cash, checks and Cookie Program Credit are accepted.
