Campers will experience outdoor activities, learn camp skills, participate in flag ceremonies, and design their own camp shirt.  Girls can participate with their unit on the Climbing Tower* and at the Archery Range* to learn basic skills and safety (*Daisys are excluded from both). Units will work on badge requirements while at camp. There will also be hiking, crafts, songs, games, and lots of new friends. The camp overnight will be on Wednesday. Girls will help plan and prepare the unit's meals and learn how to cook at camp using a campfire, box oven, dutch oven, buddy burner or a combination of these methods. During the overnight, there will be a special flag ceremony where girls will learn how to properly retire a tattered or torn flag that should no longer be used.  On Thursday, there will be an all-camp picnic. During the week, each unit will plan a skit to present to the rest of the camp on Friday. Daisys will have alternate activities in place of the high risk activities. The advanced unit will also overnight on Tuesday.

 * Parents must complete and sign the High Risk Activity Permission Form for girls to participate at the Climbing Tower and Archery Range.
