Arrive time on Fridays can be anywhwere from 5pm to 9pm. Departure time on Sunday is 10 am.
- Friday, they will have a campfire. Even if the weather does not cooperate, we have the option of using Westover or Hillcrest for the "campfire." Smore's for desert and an action plan is made for Saturday. These trips are as close to "girl led" as possible. So Friday, the girls decide what the activities for Saturday will be that fit for the theme. They have a variety of choices, can be indoor or out, safely use various areas of camp, and explore at a time it is most serene.
