Camp Activities

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.

  • Hiking
  • Bird/Tree/Plat Identification
  • Astronomy
  • Creek Stomping
  • Fire Building
  • Knives and Knots
  • Archery
  • Canoeing/Kayaking
  • Challenge (ropes) Course
  • Orienteering/GPS
  • 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.

Sleeping Arrangements

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.

Trading Post

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.
