This program is designed for girls and their significant male adults – dads, uncles, grandpas, etc. You and the rest of the group will spend the weekend at Camp Ginger Cascades on camp construction projects and sprucing up camp itself. You will enjoy great meals, a father/daughter craft and archery or the climbing wall. The Camp Ranger will lead your group in the camp project (roofing, painting, construction) and will provide the materials, training and direction as we all work together to improve camp property! So campers bring your favorite adult “guy” out to camp and show them how much fun Camp Ginger Cascades can be. By the end of the weekend, you will leave knowing you’ve left your mark on camp! Snack provided on Friday; all three meals on Saturday and continental breakfast on Sunday.
