Sugar Hollow Day Camp: Session I
Camp Theme: Bug Out
Come to camp and have a squirmy, wormy time! Crawl, creep, and fly as we discover the bugs and insects that help our environment survive and function. Sugar Hollow traditions will continue: we will wade in the creek, enjoy nature, tie-dye, hike, sing around the campfire, learn outdoor skills, cook over the fire, and sleep under the stars as we make new friends at camp. On-site activities will include archery for girls who have completed grades 3 through 6. In addition, the 6th grade Cadette unit may have one day of off-site activity.
Girls are grouped according to their January 2018 grade and Girl Scout level and will earn a special patch from the GSVSC summer camp progression program plus our unique SHDC 2018 patch.
