Fairytales -8/02/2020 – 8/08/2020

This week is going to be magical! Participate in an all-camp dragon hunt, a talent show hosted by our court jester and our fancy dress dinner on Thursday night! There is no way you will miss out on a session with Sparkles, our 6ft tall unicorn sprinkler, too!

Each week of camp will have it’s very own theme. These themes will be integrated into each day with an hour or more of program/activities dedicated to the theme. NOTE: This is additional FREE fun added to the program you registered for, these are not programs

*All three GSCP2P camps have units (campsites) unique to their property. Most of them are cabins, while some may include platform tents, tree houses or bunkhouses. Each camp has trained counselors housed in separate quarters within the unit, close enough to supervise campers and their interactions, but sleeping in their own cabin. For some of the younger girl programs, staff actually stay in the larger cabins with their groups. Please be sure to read the camp descriptions, and remember you are welcome to attend an open house at any or all of our camps to see the housing each camp has to offer.
