Campers will experience outdoor activities, learn camp skills, participate in flag ceremonies, and design their own camp shirt.  You can participate with your unit at the Climbing Tower* (this activity excludes Daisys), go to the Archery Range* and learn basic skills and safety, and complete requirements to earn a badge. There will also be hiking, crafts, songs and games, and you will make many new friends. The camp overnight will be on Wednesday. You 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 flag that is tattered or torn and should no longer be used.  On Thursday, there will be an all-camp picnic. During the week, each unit will plan a skit they feel represents their week at camp and they will present it to the rest of the camp on Friday. 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.
