Talk about and practice self-care. Examples of this would be taking a shower by themselves, brushing their teeth, brushing their hair, putting on deodorant, etc.

At check-in, your camper will be screened for lice/nits. Campers will not be allowed to stay if they have lice/nits and parents/guardians are responsible for treatments. No refunds are given for lice/nits. Girls may return to camp after receiving treatment at home and, if found to be lice/nit free, may then join camp.

Girls will have many opportunities to make new friends during their time at camp and coming on their own is always an exciting adventure. However, some girls prefer to attend with a close friend. Two girls wishing to attend camp as buddies must provide that information in their registration. Space is provided to indicate one friend’s name, and both buddies must request each other. We cannot accommodate more than one buddy combination per girl. Cabin/tent assignments will be honored for one buddy only.

Each camp has various activities that girls can participate in. Most of these include the climbing wall, archery, boating (canoeing, kayaking or paddle boating), hiking, arts and crafts, daily swimming (weather dependent), outdoor cooking, team building activities, Congdon Adventure Park (Keyauwee Program Center only) and many more!

You can join the waitlist for your preferred program at no cost! We recommend registering for your second choice program, just in case no spots become available in the preferred program. If a spot becomes available, we will reach out to members of the waitlist in the order they registered, and we can transfer payment over to the preferred program.
