The forecast for July 2nd & 3rd has the staff at GSHCDC preparing for the possibilities. As the campers departed on Tuesday, they were asked to "Bring Your Flip Flops To Camp!" on Wednesday and Thursday. Flip flops, or other summer slip-ons should be tucked into the backpack, along with a plastic grocery bag. If we need to move into Peterson Activity Center, damp athletic shoes will be put into the plastic bag, and the flip flops worn in Peterson.


Please remember to include a rain poncho - no umbrellas, please.

Once upon a time at camp, Girl Scouts journey to a storybook land filled with dragons, fairies, magical potions and inventions (STEM) and possibly rescue a prince.
