GSHCDC SUMMER 2023
GSHCDC is returning this Summer! YAY!
Camp Ilchester was sold to Howard County in Fall 2022, and the county has begun a renovation project that will extend into 2024. No camps are being held there this Summer.
But we've heard it loud and clear from our campers, families, and volunteers alike -- GSHCDC is special. We love camp!
So ... we searched for a new place to call home this year. And we found it, thanks to the kindness of Temple Isaiah in Fulton.
In their beautiful outdoor space, we will host one week of camp this Summer, following this year's theme...
This year's theme:
" REINVENTING CAMP "
Invention-themed activities will join camp favorites such as songs, dance, games, crafts, archery, STEM, leatherworking, snowcones, and much more! Camp traditions will return as well, including unit Cooking Days, all-camp activities, and finding Heidi and Hodi around camp.
Bus transportation will be available, as it has in years' past. More details are coming soon.
It's time to go back to camp! We hope you can join us!
