|Troop Camping at Camp Ginger Cascades|
School is almost out for the summer, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still connect with your Girl Scout troop. Did you know that summer troop camping sessions at Camp Ginger Cascades provide an adventure-based experience in addition to your favorite camp activities? Ever wanted to go llama trekking or see your troop zipline? There are even sessions based around white water rafting or backpacking. You can see all of the adventure-based troop camping sessions here. It’s not too late to plan a summer adventure with us!
Plus camp rentals are also available this summer at Camp Ginger Cascades, so you can customize your own troop or service unit camping experience! Have questions? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-672-2148.
