Typical Day

Camp begins with singing and a camp flag ceremony. After the morning ceremony, girls begin their daily activities. Girls will enjoy swimming, followed by fun activities, such as arts and crafts, adventure, and archery. Then units meet with a program specialist. The majority of the program is planned by the campers with their unit the first day of each session.
