The Year of the Outdoors at Camp Tahigwa
Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois has designated this year as the Year of the Outdoors, and we are so excited! GSEIWI has created a special patch for girls who complete at least three activities from a special list, and we're committed to helping girls earn this fabulous patch at Camp Tahigwa!
Join us for the Great American Backyard Campout - June 25: What's better than pitching a tent in your own backyard? Pitching a tent at camp! Join us as we try to set the record for the number of tents in the playing field and lower meadow! Troops and families are all welcome to join - you provide the adults needed to meet supervision ratios, and we'll provide first aiders who are camp skills trained, meals, and activities to make the night a blast. Great event for families and troops who are new to camping. Bring your own tent : ) Friends of Camp Tahigwa is looking for gently used tents for Camptastic and events like the GABCO! If you have a tent to donate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visit Camp Tahigwa for a Camping Adventure - Paltastic or Camptastic - July 22 - 27
Camptastic and Paltastic are back and better than ever! Registration for both events opens soon!
Paltastic is an opportunity for girls entering grades 1-8 to spend a weekend at camp with their favorite adult. Tubing down Bear Creek, our legendary climbing tower, and epic Jello fight await!
Camptastic is a traditional, resident-style camping experience where girls can spend four days and three nights having fun at Camp Tahigwa. Sessions are divided by age and interest, and there is something for everyone!
