Camping 102

Ready to go camping? Camping 102 will prepare you to take a Girl Scout troop camping in a camp unit. This is a hands on training where the participant will experience outdoor cooking and dish washing, methods of fire-building, knots and more. 
 
At least one adult (more is even better!) in each camping group must attend this course prior to your camping trip. Completion of Camping 102 qualifies adult volunteers to take girls on camp-outs where the girls will be cooking outdoors and sleeping in a platform tent, permatent, A-frame tent or a pitched tent on a primitive campground. Visit our website for available dates.
   
 Medical Volunteers Needed this Summer
Are you a licensed physician or registered nurse? Do you love camp and have a heart for service? 
 
Camp Oakledge and Camp Daisy are looking for volunteers who would like to spend a week serving camper (grades ranging from 3-12) and staff medical needs during resident camp programs.  
 
Volunteer for one week and receive a free camp session (5-night, 6-day) for you camper or a friend's camper. If you interested, email the Camp Department. 
  
 Ongoing Improvements in Process at Camp Daisy
We hope a trip to Camp Daisy is on your calendar for the spring!  If it is, you're sure to notice a lot of construction action around camp.  Be sure to check it out (from outside the safety fencing, of course)!  Here's a sneak peek at what's happening.

 

After spending the Fall semester studying and designing, architecture students from the Design.Make Studio at Kansas State University are hard at work finishing two projects: 

  • Design and construction of the interior of the shower house and restrooms at the spray ground.  
  • Design and construction of a prototype cabin in Juliette Low-complete with lights and a fan!  This cabin will replace one of the platform tents, and has the potential to be replicated in other areas of camp in the future. 

Additionally, two new elements are being added to the spray ground-replacing temporary elements installed in 2012.  Stop by and cool off under the Flower Shower and Water Whoopee, coming late this Spring!
