Girls Outdoor Camp Since 1997

Wed, 03/08/2017 - 23:35

Teaching camping to girls since 1997We've been teaching girls how to camp outdoors since 1997 and we have these cool colorful teaching aids to help us cover all the basics with you. During the 1st 24 hours of camp we'll teach you everything you need to know about tent set-up and take-down, personal care and hygiene, cooking outdoors, Leave No Trace practices, being aware of natural risks, keeping warm and dry outdoors and more!

For those returning Alpengirls (there are MANY of you this summer) - You'll be pros already so be prepared to be the LOD on day 1 or 2! It's fairly common for Alpenguides to choose a returning camper as the first Leader of the Day so they can help new Alpengirls in learning the ropes of camping and gain comfort with living outdoor skills right away so that the real fun can begin!

Abby is a true artist, she hand-drew all of the new Alpenguide teaching cards and they are pretty, fun and informative so we don't miss a beat with teaching our girls all about camping in the woods!

She studied Documentary Production at Ithaca College in NY, has been a coach for Girls on the Run, and has led teen adventure trips all across the US and Canada.
