Into the Wild | Grades 4-8
This week has gone to the animals! We’ll hop out of your house and fly into the woods to learn about the animals around us. We will learn how to protect the animals that share our camp and our homes. From virtual visits to Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge to visits to local beekeepers, this week is sure to be wild!

Counselor-in-Training | Grades 9-11 | [PROGRAM FULL!]
**Important Info: This is a two-week program. Girls MUST attend both weeks to complete their CIT training. July 13-17 & July 20-24**
Our Counselor-in-Training Program (CIT), formally known as the CATs program, aims to train Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts to be effective leaders and to understand the necessary qualities and responsibilities required to be a camp counselor.
Girl Scouts provides CITs with the tools they need to be leaders at camp as well as their community at large. Under the direction of our Leadership staff, CITs will expand their leadership skills by shadowing counselors, taking certification courses, and participating in various activities and workshops that will prepare them for working with campers of all ages.
Badges Earned: Girls who complete this two-week program will earn their CIT pin.
