Girl Scout Camp Activities

Circle F schedules a time slot for each troop to participate at the Alpine Tower and archery, and an hour and a half block for a horseback trail ride. One week before your weekend, Circle F will email troop leaders with the rotation schedule for the Alpine Tower, archery, horseback rides, and hayrides. The Girl Scout Weekend schedule also allows flexibility for girls to connect and play with each other at the waterfront and sports fields.
