Still Room in Daisies/Brownies and Junior Units

I have split out the registration for Daisy/Brownie and Junior to better help the registration/wait-list process.

As of the writing of this post, we have room for 4 Daisy/Brownie Girls and 16 Junior Girls.
There are currently 4 girls on the waiting list for the (Cadette) Blue Units.

Remember to register for the Grade-Level that the Girl Scout will be going into Fall of 2017.

Waiting List Processed

Currently, out Cadette (Blue) Unit is full and we are taking names for the waiting list (fill out the registration form).

We do have room in the Brownie (10 spots open) and Junior (19 spots open) Units. Because the other unit is full, you will be put on the waiting list after you fill out the registration. Please wait a day or two after that to be added into the registration.

Thanks for your patience as we work through our new registration system.

First Day Totals

First Day Registration totals:

Girls:  63

PA: 6

This is our best “opening day” ever!  We have capped the registration, but will take girls on a waiting list and slot them in their age-level units as space allows.

May the Forest Be With You!

Theme and Dates Picked for 2017

The Conestoga Day Camp Planning Committee met to debrief the Conestoga Magic week and to read all of the evaluations.  It was immediately obvious that the girls loved to ride horses this year. The least favorite thing was the hot weather, but we will continue to look for new, fun, wet, ways to stay cool.

For 2017, the dates of camp will be June 12-16, 2017 — Mark Your Calendars!  The theme is “May the Forest Be With You.”  Now is a good time to start thinking about that T-shirt/Patch design contest around our theme!

Have a wonderful summer — we’ll see you back at Conestoga Day Camp next year!

Another Great Year!…and the Magic Continues!

What a great week for camp!  We hiked, swam, rode horses, climbed the rock wall, made S.W.A.P.S.. did crafts, learned outdoor cooking, made new friends, and much more!  We had a record number of campers this year, and we can’t thank our wonderful volunteers who made that all possible. We had 181 campers, including 25 older Girl Scouts (PAs and Pixie Chicks)!

The planning committee will review all of the evaluations at their debriefing meeting this week.  Camp for 2017 has already been planned for the week of June 12-16.  Mark your calendars now!  Also, put February 1st on your calendar for when day camp registration opens.  We will also send out email reminders.

Overnight Dinner in the New Dining Hall

New Dining Hall at Camp Liberty

Campers 5th grade and older had the option of staying overnight. They started the evening with chicken fajitas, fruit, and dessert as resident camp councelors practices their new dining procedures. We were the first large group to be served in the new space. The ice water and air conditioning were very much appreciated on this 94 degree day!
