GSOFCT Camp Merrie-Wood

*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 08/02/2019
Girls will be able to foster their individuality and grow as independent thinkers as they explore the mystery and wonder of the great outdoors. They will be mentored as they experience a blend of traditions and modern camping skills, with sports, games, nature exploration, open-fire cooking, and hiking the trails. And since each week features a different theme, girls are free to discover their interests, their passions, and themselves.

Week 1 (6/24-6/28): Artful Antics
Ready to get artsy? Get your fingers dirty with our over-the-top art projects. Come ready to have fun, be messy, and unlock your creativity this week.

Week 2 (7/1-7/5): Carnival Shenanigans
What better way to enjoy summer than at the fair? Join us for carnival-themed crafts, snacks, and games! Come ready to be silly, win prizes, and have a ball at the carnival!

Week 3 (7/8-7/12): #CampingHacks
Girl Scouts give the camping experience an upgrade with these ingenious DIY tricks. From traditional campfire cooking to out-of-the-box, let's make some fun preparations for your next camping trip!

Week 4 (7/15-7/19): Water Odyssey
Beat the summer heat with our wet, wild, and wacky games. Campers will enjoy aquatic activities from bucket relays to water tag to Merrie-Wood's own "Brookstomping"!

Week 5 (7/22-7/26): Choose Your Own Adventure
The choice is yours! A mystery with science and nature, an artistic invention, an exciting sports game - YOU decide which adventure you'll participate in!

Week 6 (7/29-8/2): Fire, Food, 'n' Fun
Experiment with all things that can be cooked in the great outdoors. From apples to zucchini - you name it, we cook it!
