GSOFCT Camp Laurel (Resident)

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sat, 08/10/2019
Situated amongst rolling hills, Camp Laurel provides the quintessential sleepaway-camp experience. Girls will live in cabins or tents; enjoy delicious meals in our spacious dining hall; go swimming, boating, and paddleboarding on the waterfront; and make lifelong memories. They will treasure the traditions experienced and friendships formed at Camp Laurel.

Week 1 (6/30-7/6)
Wands, Wings, and Wonder: Transform into a butterfly, fairy, or wizard as you explore the wonders of nature and camp. Make a butterfly garden, design a fairy house, create outdoor art, and participate in a pop-up dance program. End the week with a one-of-a-kind party for wizards of all ages.

Week 2 (7/7-7/13)
Think Like a Detective: Hone your investigative skills as you participate in an all-camp "Who Done It" mystery. Interview suspects, track prints, and collect clues around camp. Put your problem-solving skills to the test.

Week 3 (7/14-7/20)
Art, Arrows, and Adventure: Take in the inspiration of the outdoors and design your masterpiece! Discover the artist in you by experimenting with different paints, materials, canvases, and scenery - then display your talents at an art show at the end of the week. Campers in grades 4 and up can also participate in an archery tournament. And all campers will take their outdoor adventure to the next level with CAMP QUEST!

Week 4 (7/21-7/27)
Time Travelers: Build a time machine and travel back to the Wild West, the "hippie days," and the disco era. Campers are also invited to a "Very Groovy Sleepover" under the stars, where they can stay up late, sleep in, and get up for late-morning activities. The entire week is on "night owl" time!

Week 5 (7/28-8/3)
Campfire Chef: Get ready for a week of culinary adventure! Learn to cook over a campfire and prepare meals to enter in our Campfire Chef Competition! Events will include a cookie bake-off and a candlelight meal to cap off the week.

Week 6 (8/4-8/10)
Take a Walk on the Wild Side: Calling all creatures of the wild! Explore the forest with trailblazing. Dress as your favorite animal at a jungle ball designed for the truly wild. Plus hiking options at sunrise and nightfall!
