We’ll bring the fun to you!

We understand girls may not always be able to make it to our camps, and we’re happy to provide activities and adventures wherever you need them. We’ve created an assortment of activities that girls love and designed them to be portable. From Archery to Ozobots, we’ve got something for every troop and we’re happy to send one of our top-notch facilitators to your location to lead an unforgettable experience.
