Hogwarts Camp

This camp is for seven days and six nights and designed for girls entering grades 6 thru 9 (Cadette & Senior girl scouts).

The theme of the 2017 camp will be the Hogwarts. So come prepared to participate in a bunch of Harry Potter themed activities. Be sure to brush up on your Wizarding skills and Harry Potter trivia.

The camp will also include traditional activities including Rock Climbing, Kayaking, Archery & Rappelling.

 

Hogwarts PLUS Camp

Attend and enjoy all the activities of Hogwarts Camp but then as everyone is leaving you will stay an extra day at camp learning more rock climbing skills. This session is restricted to 16 girls so you will also get a chance to experience Wolf Creek when it is less crowded.

Earn the Legacy rock climbing badge. Discover ways to improve as a climber and develop your technical skills. Learn to tie climbing knots, inspect climbing hardware, understand belay devices, carabineers, ropes and other gear. We will show you basic rescue techniques and let you develop your skills as a belayer.

If you plan to become a CIT at Camp Tall Trees and have not previously taken the Rock IP you should consider staying to take this training.
