Camp Menzies Programs
Camp Menzies offers a variety of overnight sessions ranging from four to eight days. Campers range in age from 6-18. Our well-rounded program is based on Girl Scout philosophy and is appropriate to the age, interests and abilities of campers. Camp Menzies consistently maintains high standards for the health and safety of our campers.
At Camp Menzies, campers live in “units” with girls their own age who have registered for the same program. Unit size varies between 8 and 16 girls and 2-5 staff members depending on the type of program and age of the campers. Programs range from a sampling of camp activities found in our general programs, to specialty programs such as drama, horseback riding, adventure activities or backpacking.
The units plan and participate in their own schedule of activities for the week. Girls work with the camp staff to plan the schedule. We try to do as much “girl planning” as possible. Many of the camp activities will relate to the specific program that the girls have signed up for, but will also include many other fun camp options: swimming, hiking, crafts, outdoor cooking, songs, games, etc. Special all camp events will be held throughout the week. These might include campfires, theme meals, parties or special games that bring everyone together.
