Pay with PayPal!

New this year, we are set up to receive PayPal payments for Conestoga Day Camp!  You can pay the full amount, or just pay the deposit to hold you spot at camp if you are waiting on Cookie Credit.

We have had quite a few people take advantage of this option already.  As of the writing of this post, we have 88 campers registered!

It’s going to be a fantastic year!  YOLO!

2014 Camp Theme – YOLO!

You Only Live Once (YOLO) is the theme for this year’s Conestoga Day Camp.  What does that theme mean for the campers?  Lots of fun activities that will challenge them to grow in new ways.  As always, we build our activities around outdoor skills, team building and leadership development at the appropriate age-level.  We are so excited about the changes that will be happening at Camp Conestoga — and so glad we will still be able to hold day camp on Day Camp Hill!

We Will Be At Conestoga for Day Camp in 2014!

You may have heard that Conestoga is being renovated with some very exciting new changes.  Will we still be able to hold Day Camp at Conestoga?  The answer is “YES!”  While we possibly will not have access to the pool due to renovations in that area, all of Day Camp Hill will be available for our use!  We are looking forward to another great year as our planning is already underway!  As always, we welcome new adult volunteers to get involved with Day Camp.

Waiting List Now Activated

We are holding a few spots for the children of Adult Volunteers, so we are in a “wait-listed state” for Day Camp.  We will notify you if anyone has changed their plans about day camp.  An email will go out later this week with the status of everything we still need:  fees, health forms, overnight permission slips.

Camp is Almost Full!

We are starting to take waiting lists for all groups except Cadettes and PAs.  We still have need for adult volunteers for the full week or just a day.

Remember to send in your camp fees and Health Forms (and Overnight permission slips if applicable) before May 1st.  If you are waiting on Cookie Credit, please indicate that when you send in your fees and forms.

We have another planning meeting this week.  It’s getting exciting!

Day Camp will be June 10-14th, 2013

You may have heard that it is a recommendation from the Property Committee that all four Girl Scout camps be sold.  This recommendation goes to the board for their March 28th meeting.  There is a Town Hall at the Quad Cities Leadership Center on March 12th at 6pm.  Let your voices be heard.

All camps will run through this summer — which means Conestoga Day Camp is the place to be to start your summer out!

Special at this year’s camp will be an official flag retiring ceremony on Flag Day, June 14th.  Information will be coming soon with the start of registration on March 1st.


Day #5 – Packing up Camp, All Camp Activities, and Closing Ceremonies

Can you believe this is our last day?  This week had such beautiful weather that we were able to really pack a lot of activities in!

We inventoried all of our unit boxes and got them back to Fred’s Shed.  We did a clean sweep of our campsite so that it looks better than when we came — and we have practiced “Leave No Trace.”

We joined together at the Bea Conrad shelter for an all-camp lunch complete with Whitey’s Ice Cream, and then went off to play games looking back — and reaching forward.

The recognitions and closing flag ceremony are always a highlight of the week.  See you next year!
