Let’s Go Camping

We have several exciting camping opportunities throughout 2018!

Volunteer-Organized Weekends

All these trips are planned and organized by adult volunteers from troops within GSHPA Service Unit 416 and neighboring SUs. If the trips we have planned do not meet your schedule / level needs, feel free to contact the Camp Committee and we can help you organize something that fits your needs (including helping you get in touch with other leaders who can help you). The only limit to our ability to go to camp is a source of adult volunteers who want to plan and execute. When camps fill, that means we need to plan more camps!
