Summer Weekend Camp

Introducing: Summer 2018 Weekend Camp*!

Weekend troop camping and themed weekend camps will be available at Camp Hawthorn Hollow during the weekends of June through August. Weekends will have fun themes like Outdoor Skills Challenge and Innovator's Weekend Workshop. A full array of traditional outdoor camp activities will be available, and meals will be served and/or prepared in the individual cabins.

We're looking forward to a great summer of weekend fun and learning for our girls—and even better camp facilities once construction is completed!

* Camp Playfair will be offering the same weekend troop camping as in previous years.

About Troop Camping

Troop camping will be available most weekends June through August (except August 10 - 12). Troop camping is open to all Girl Scout levels and adults.

Troops pay one price for the whole weekend and are responsible for all meals, activities and the supervision of girls while at camp. Pricing for all troop camping summer weekends is $500.00 per cabin and $260.00 per village.

Add-on camp activities are available for $5.00 per girl. Add-ons currently offered for troop camping are: Campfire, S’mores, and Songs, Animal Tracking, Orienteering, Letterboxing, Low Ropes/Teambuilding, Night Hike/Stargazing, and Outdoor Sports. When certified staff are available, troops can enjoy archery and the pool, too.
