Overnight Camp and Day Camp registration begins tomorrow, March 5, at 7 a.m.! The Outdoor Program team is very excited for this summer, and all the awesome programs we will offer at Day Camps and Overnight Camps around the state. If you haven’t had a chance to look at the Summer Program Guidebook yet, we recommend you check it out. There is something for everybody!!
Feel like trying out your acting skills? Maybe you’ve always wanted to learn how to cook over a campfire, or perhaps you’ve just wanted to try sleeping under the stars? Can you see yourself riding a horse with your hair blowing in the mountain air while you ride through aspen groves, up hills, down valleys, and across camp? You could be the adventurous type and want to try rock climbing, rappelling, and high ropes courses. Or, are you a mad scientist who wants to learn some new scientific facts and techniques. We offer many different opportunities for any kind of camper. We have backpacking, photography, horseback riding, archery, arts and crafts, outdoor living skills, rock climbing, high and low ropes courses, and many other options for just trying something new. Not all programs are offered at all of our properties. The 2013 Summer Program Guidebook has all the program information listed by location. If you have not received one in the mail, please feel free to view it online at: http://www.girlscoutsofcolorado.org/summer-program-guide .
Summer camp is a great opportunity for any child. Summer camp – both Day Camp and Overnight Camp — teaches independence, social skills, practical living skills, personal values, leadership, teamwork, strength, perseverance, a love of nature and the outdoors, and it’s a fun way to learn! Girl Scout camp has a way of creating a camaraderie and sisterhood among campers that lasts a lifetime. Camp is an environment unlike any other learning opportunity. Campers learn to respectfully interact with peers, and adults. Campers also learn the values of living by the Girl Scout Law and Promise.
A few additional programs to look for are our Troop and Family Camping options that can be found on the Activity Finder. Programs include, but are not limited to: Day archery programs; Reach for the Peak at Sky High Ranch; and troop and family camping at Lazy Acres, Tomahawk Ranch, Magic Sky Ranch, Meadow Mountain Ranch and several other locations across the state.
We look forward to this summer and all the great opportunities Girl Scouts of Colorado is offering. We are super excited to meet all the new campers, and see all returning campers again.
So don’t forget to check out the Summer Program Guidebook now and be ready to register tomorrow morning. Some camps fill fast, so don’t delay.
