A blog post written by Einstein (Val Harle), Director of Camp Conestoga
As a camp director one of the things I have heard a lot from girls who have gone to camp is that they want to be able to do a certain activity more than once or that they wanted to do an activity like archery and the rest of their group did not.
Since camp is planned by girls and the group of girls decides what they’d like to do, there are times one activity gets left undone in favor of something else. For example, the group decides to spend time canoeing instead of taking a nature hike. What if you really wanted to take that nature hike?
Well, there is a new camp session to solve this problem. The Choice is Yours lets the girl decide individually what she wants to do each day.
So, if archery is your thing or you really want to learn more about developing photos in the dark room, you can spend time learning that skill. The best part is that a girl can go to camp with a buddy or even her whole troop and decide what she wants to do and do it. There’s still plenty of time to hang out with friends at meals, at the unit but the girls pick what they want to do without having to compromise with the group.
Canoeing everyday? Not a problem. Zipline twice? Sure. Don’t like arts and crafts? Girls don’t have to go. The Choice is Yours. This session is for girls entering 6th-12th grades and girls can register individually, with a buddy or as a troop.
The Choice is Yours will be held at both Camp Little Cloud and Camp Conestoga this summer. Registration opened March 1. Register early so you don’t miss it!
