Registration for Spring Camp 2020 is open! For $5 per person, troops are invited to join us at Camp Golden Pond for our annual “do your own thing” Service Unit camporee!
Spring Camporee is an unstructured event where troops are invited to camp to just hang out, work on a badge, and generally do their own thing. No programming other than scheduling limited resources is provided. Weather and facilitator availability permitting, troops will be able to sign up for archery, canoeing, and fishing time slots. We may even have a visit from the STEM mobile!
Troops are expected to be fully autonomous at this camp – including adult/girl ratios, first aiders, meals, and programming. Be sure to get your troop registered before rates increase on April 3rd!
Summer 2020 – STREAM Girls
State College Girl Scouts is partnering with Trout Unlimited to bring the STREAM Girls program to Camp Golden Pond. At this family camp, we will explore our watershed as scientists, anglers, and artists – allowing us to get the complete picture of what our waters mean to us and how we can help protect them.
Over the course of the weekend we will study the animal and plant life that inhabits our camp waters. We will also learn the art of fly tying and be able to explore both bait and fly fishing.
Girls can participate as either a family unit complete with siblings or as a troop following adult/girl ratios.
Registration is currently open for families and troops from Service Unit 416 and 422.
Registration is also open for SU 416’s annual Spring and Summer camporees.
In order to keep the camp open, Friends of Golden Pond must succeed at purchasing the property. We currently have just shy of $50,000 allocated towards our down payment, thanks to our generous supporters. In addition to cash contributions towards the down payment, we also need long term commitments towards paying off the loan.
If you believe that our camp should remain a public resource available to all, please complete and return a capital campaign commitment form. If you cannot make a long term commitment, a group of former board members of Hemlock Girl Scout Council will be matching all donations made to Friends of Golden Pond through March 14th, 2020.
