Dark Hollow Day Camp: Session I (with Overnight)
S’more Friends, Fun and Freezy Pops at Our Favorite Place
Come join us to explore nature, Critter College, hiking, cooking on a stick, eating s‘mores, singing silly songs, making crafts and our famous freezy pops, and best of all: making new friends! We have all that and more at Dark Hollow Day Camp at Icimani Adventure Center. We will even have time to play games, plan skits and enjoy a special campfire.
Join us for “Juliette’s Jewels,” our special-interest day. We will explore our Girl Scout heritage while meeting new friends, tasting food and playing games. We will beat the summer heat as we splash and play in our all-camp Splish-Splash water day! All campers will spend the night on June 28. Campers in grades 2-6 can earn a special camp patch if they participate in prescribed activities at camp. Trained leaders help girls carry out their activities.
