Summer Camp: Mini Sessions for Grades 1-3
Summer camp is a lot of fun and filled with adventure, but what if you are not quite ready to spend a whole week away from home? Then maybe a mini session is for you!

Our camp mini sessions are the perfect introduction to the overnight camp experience and open to girls in grades 1-3 (during the 2023-24 school year). Programs run Sunday-Wednesday and provide a shortened, yet action-packed, experience filled with all the camp favorites. Themes for mini sessions change every week and correspond with badges girls will earn while they also spend time doing arts and crafts, swimming, campfires and more!

You can find all our mini sessions being offered at both Camp Ginger Cascades and Keyauwee Program Center in the 2023 Camp Book
