Troop Exploration 1-Night at Camp Singing Hills (Grades K-12) Jul 20 - Yurt
Duration: Thursday 2pm – Friday 2pm
Location: Waterville, MN
Member Registration Opens Mar 7 at 9:00 am (CST)
Troop Price for This Stay: $650
Have a two-day troop adventure at camp! Enjoy Camp Singing Hills while bonding with your troop and experiencing fun staff-led and troop-led activities.
Only the Troop Leader will need to register the group, and the troop leader will be able to register by reserving a housing unit (booking a cabin or yurt), instead of registering by person. Shady Glen Cabins sleep up to 16 people; Windsong Yurts sleep up to 12. Troops can bring more adults than required by their program grade level ratio if desired. As long as Girl Scout Safety Safety-Wise guidelines and ratios are met for your troop’s age level, you may bring whatever Girl Scout/adult ratio you wish.
Activities: Your adventure will kick off on Thursday with a snack and staff-led activity (a choice of archery, slingshots, low ropes/teambuilding games, geocaching, canoeing, kayaking, and paddleboarding). Your staff-led activity will be approximately 75 minutes. Then troops will have some time to explore camp, do troop-led activities, and get a chance to swim.
Throughout your stay, your troop have about 4 hours of free time for troop-led activities. Your troop can hike or bike around camp, play a game in the playfield, bring something to tie-dye, or work on a project from home! These activities are planned and facilitated by the troop.
Meals: Thursday dinner will be a chance for your troop to practice your fire building and cooking skills: a cookout! Troops have the choice of making pudgie pie pizzas, mac-n-cheese or burritos. There will also be veggies, fruit, and a dessert. You’ll also have a campfire, complete with S’mores! On Friday breakfast and lunch will be provided in the dining hall. Your meals will be cooked by our kitchen staff. Troops are welcome to bring additional food items/snacks to accommodate dietary needs and troop preferences. There will be space available to store these items safely in the Dining Hall (including refrigerated space). Troops will also have access to microwaves to use.
Housing: Windsong Yurts sleep up to 12 people. They contain 6 bunks. They include screened, roll-up windows and an overhead dome that opens for circulation. They do not have heat, air conditioning, electrical outlets, or lights (bring flashlights!). There is access to bathrooms with flush toilets just a short walk away. A shower house is also available.
Logistics: Prior to arrival, we’ll send an email asking for the names and emails of all participants. We’ll also ask you to select 1) which activity your cabin would like to do, and 2) which cookout option your troop would like for Thursday dinner in advance. Cabins will receive their schedule for staff-led events and swim time upon arrival.
