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! This is the perfect event for families, troops, and alumni!
Roast hotdogs, make smores, take a hike, and do all the fun things you remember from camping. We'll provide supper, snack, games, hikes, crafts, and a grab and go breakfast in the morning.
Troops can treat this event as a mini troop camp, or a first (or 40th) adventure into tent camping. You bring your own tent and 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.
Families can look forward to a night of backyard camping with all of the amenities of home and the fun of Tahigwa. The lodge will be open all night for potty breaks, glasses of water, and everything you may need from home. Families must bring sufficient adults to supervise their groups.
This is event is especially great for families and troops who are new to camping. Bring your own tent : )
Registration Deadline: Monday, June 21
3 and under: FREE

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 email@example.com. We're also hoping to have a few tents available to borrow.
