Our programs include traditional camp activities, such as swimming, canoeing, arts & crafts, nature study, horseback riding and outdoor cooking and is enhanced by a variety of tiered, progressive themes that are based on Girl Scout philosophy and are appropriate to the age, interests and abilities of campers. In order to facilitate this, we have three different age-based tracks: Discovery, Pathfinders and Leadership.
Discovery: Grades 1-5
Discovery Programs are designed for girls entering grades 1-5. Campers have the opportunity to participate in each activity area and work together with the unit staff and other girls in their unit to choose different ways they can complete a badge, camp service projects and more.
Pathfinders: Grades 6-12
Pathfinders Programs are for girls entering grades 6-12, and many involve multiple Girl Scout age levels. These programs are facilitated by staff, and girls are given activity options based on their interests. Their schedules are supplemented by ROC time - learn more about it in “a day in the life.”
Leadership: Grades 6-12
Leadership Programs are for girls entering grades 6-12 who are interested in leading programs for their peers and younger campers. There are programs for those who aspire to become a Counselor-in-Training or work on leadership skills in general. These programs pair up with our Discovery Programs to provide hands-on experience.

All of our Camp Menzies programs are robust in size and scope: bring your family for a weekend program, send your girl for a sleep-away experience; the opportunities are endless. Dates are available in the camp brochure (link above), and participants can sign up through activities starting February 1.
