The volunteer led Camping Subcommittee invites you to attend Songs, S’mores and More- a weekend at Camp Conestoga just for adult camp alumnae and Girl Scout volunteers! Relive camp memories, and make new ones during this weekend dedicated to all things outdoors. All Adult Girl Scout Volunteers are invited, whether you have been to camp as a girl, or if you have never visited any of our facilities!
We have two options filled with fun: an overnight for Girl Scout Camp Alumnae and a Saturday afternoon for any adult who loves camp, or wants to experience it for the first time! Here is our schedule of events:
For anyone who has ever attended Girl Scout Camp, wherever you attended!
6 p.m. Friday, September 19 – 12 p.m. Saturday, September 20
$15 per person, includes, supplies, activities, lodging and breakfast on Saturday
Friday Evening- Spend the evening sharing stories, singing songs around a campfire and help us create a camp banner for 2014, then spend the night in a tent or cabin.
Saturday - Start the day off with breakfast, then explore camp through a variety of activities including canoeing, zip line, archery, and tours of camp by hayrack. You’ll also have time to meet with Girl Scout staff to discuss the designs for our new facility and share your ideas for making camp the best it can be for girls.

Saturday Afternoon- Invite the adult volunteers you know to come and experience all that camp has to offer, because why should girls have all the fun?

We are encouraging adult volunteers who have never been out to camp before to spend an afternoon sampling some of the favorite activities we offer including archery, canoeing or even challenge yourself on our zip line.
