Head up into the hills for a week of
high adventure and fun! This camp will introduce girls to
adventure-based outdoor sports, camping, and survival skills.
Archery, rock climbing and river living all await those risk takers on
this Mountain Mission. Timbercrest campers will experience
breath-taking whitewater, while those at Castle Rock get to float a
serene river with options for tubing and stand up paddle boarding (SUP)!
Calling all older campers ready to
step-up their outdoor adventure game! Come climb to lofty heights and
float on pristine rivers, and then enjoy a horseback ride through the
wilds of Montana’s landscapes. At Timbercrest, campers will
experience breath-taking whitewater rafting, and they will get the
treat of ending their horseback trail ride with a hearty chuck wagon
meal. At Castle Rock, campers will tack-on a day of cave exploration
in addition to horseback riding. At each location, our explorers will
spend a day trekking a nearby trail with all they need on their backs.
Don’t forget about those camp classics like archery!
Girl Scout vs. Wild
Picture yourself stranded in the
woods, far from civilization, armed only with your intelligence and
your friends to help you find your way home. Early in the week, these
determined campers will practice skills essential to surviving life in
the Rocky Mountain wild. Navigation, fire starting, plant ID and
knots are just the start of skills needed to survive this special
course. After their training, campers will get an opportunity to put
their new skills to the test by teaming up to “survive” a trek from
the wild back to the security of camp.
Good Pods & Great Bakes
Are you the type of person
who likes to listen to podcasts? Or are you somebody who enjoys a
home-baked cake with all the toppings? Have you ever wanted to become
a storyteller? If you answered yes to any of these questions, than do
we have a week for you; filled with stories, creative games, and baked
goodies to share. While story telling is the oldest form of
entertainment, we’re giving it a modern twist, with Podcasts! Girl's
will get a chance to direct, record, and star in their own episode. Of
course, everyone knows that sweet treats power creative artists.
Campers will also create baked desserts like cakes and cookies, and
they will decorate them with all the flair you’d see on a top-notch
Forest of Mystery
Head into the forest each day to
overcome challenges and solve mysteries that will test your teamwork,
problem solving skills, and creativity. Can you outsmart, outlast, and
outplay your fellow campers? Head over to tribal council to find out
who exactly is the future Camp Director, where you’ll get the chance
to vote on categories like positivity, cleverness, leadership, and
resourcefulness. Keep a sharp eye out for those hidden idols, if you
find any, turn them in for a reward that will give you a boost in the
next challenge or make camp life just a little cozier!
Yes, the mountains hold a certain magic,
and during this one special week at Timbercrest, our girls will
perfect a handful of mysterious enigmas and jaw-dropping illusions.
Our campers will practice and hone their magic so that by the end of
the week, they can choose to entertain the camp community at closing
campfire. Along with wizardry-school instruction, days will be
interspersed with wizard games and crafts inspired by pixies and fairies.
Girl's who love nature, animals, and crafts
will find everything to fit their fancy during this week of camp.
Campers will learn to identify and use native plants to create useful
concoctions of essential oils, scented candles, and aroma-therapeutic
soaps. So we’re not just taking from the world, camper’s will
diligently create living worlds to take home and raise! The oldest
known terrarium is 53 years old, anybody feel like a challenge?
Wildcrafters at Timbercrest Camp will visit the Yellowstone Wildlife
Sanctuary to get animal-inspiration for their artistic creations.
GS Summer Games
In celebration of this summer’s Olympic
games, GSMW is offering a week of camp dedicated to worldly
competition and bizarre gaming conquests. Campers should expect this
camp to include archery, basketball and volleyball. Of course, soccer
is a world game standard, but would you expect human-bubble soccer!?
Every camper will have the chance to climb atop the medal podium after
playing all sorts of strategic, bizarre and spirted contests. Imagine
yourself competing for the gold medal in gaga ball, jumbo bananagrams,
and massive memory! Be sure to pack your game face in addition to
your spirit of fun and fair play!
At Castle Rock only, GSMW presents a
whirlwind tour of everything dug-up, archeological and geological from
the depths of Butte, America. Campers will spend a day at the World
Museum of Mining and take a tour of a 100-foot deep mine, and then
visit Lewis & Clark Caverns for an underground cave tour.
Speaking of geology, why wouldn’t these campers get a chance to make
the most spectacular pet rocks ever known? In addition to fishing and
swimming, Girls will also explore the grand historical artifacts of
Camp Castle Rock itself, which has served as a Girl Scout camp since
Does the bright light of daylight hurt your
eyes? Do you only start to wake up as the sun goes down? Spend the
week exploring the wonders of the natural world using your senses… at
night! The world magically transforms and reveals secrets that day
dwellers just won’t understand. You’ll get to explore the Planetarium
in Casper, create a star map, and there may even be a kitchen raid to
keep up our strength for that night hike. Don’t worry; you’ll get to
Aces of Archery
The quest to become an elite archer
begins with Aces of Archery. Every day, campers will learn and
practice new archery skills through personalized instruction and
creative archery games. Girls will travel to nearby field archery
courses to try their hand at a sport akin to “archery golf”. Upon
their return from the local field archery range, campers will make
their own field archery course at camp! This year’s crew of awesome
archers will also learn about archery competition and tournament play
by practicing scoring, then participating in a competition with their
new camp friends.
GSMW and Reach 4A Star are offering
another great summer full of horseback riding skills and adventure.
Campers will study horse anatomy and health, and they’ll learn how
to manage a horse barn. Along with four hours each day at the horse
corral, Girls will experience the traditional side of camp with
campfires, songs, games and crafts to boot!
This introductory camp is aimed at teaching:
- Building a relationship with a horse
- Controlling a
horse while walking and trotting
