You are invited to join us to enjoy nature, hiking, cooking on a stick, making and eating s'mores, singing silly songs, making crafts and best of all making new friends. Discover why Dark Hollow Day Camp is our special place! We will enjoy our creek, trails and special programs to learn about animals, STEAM activities and always FUN. We will splash and play at our Beat the Heat water day! We will even have time to play games, plan skits, try other surprise activities and enjoy our special campfire to celebrate our accomplishments. 

During the second week of camp, campers will spend the night on Thursday, June 27, complete with campfire and entertainment from each unit. Campers completing 2nd through 8th grades can earn a special camp patch if they participate in prescribed activities at camp. Some age groups also work on an age appropriate badge during our two week program as well. Trained leaders help girls carry out their activities. We have our Dark Hollow I Can't Believe I Did That Day on Wednesday, June 26. And we always have our famous Freezy Pops to cool us down, so come join the fun!

Experienced instructors will help you learn; your efforts can be applied to earning a special camp patch and a badge.
