Family and Mountain Jubilees

*April 9-11, 2021 (Family and Mountain Jubilee)
**April 16-18, 2021 (Mountain Jubilee)

Registration for Family Mountain Jubilee (Spring) begins February 15, 2021!

Girl Scouts and their dads, uncles, grandfathers or special men in their lives will enjoy primitive camping “festival-style” in your own tent or camper, or one of our platform tents. Groups of 16-28 people attending together can rent one of our cabin units. For those that need a little extra support we also have bunk-style housing for father-daughter pairs. Fire rings, shelters, water spigots, picnic tables, pit latrines, port-a-potties and showers are also available. Bring your own traditional camping equipment (portable grill/smoker, propane stove) or use an old-fashioned campfire to make your meals. Wrap things up with an optional Sunday breakfast buffet to reflect on the lasting memories made together.

Activities for the weekend include candle making, screen printing, tie-dye, rock climbing, hiking, fishing, leather making, and canoeing at no additional cost. You can also sign up to participate in a Horseback Riding Arena Lesson or a Pony Ride for an additional cost. You can see those details below.

* Family and Mountain Jubilee weekend (April 9-11) is a combination of Families or Girl Scouts and the male father figures in their life.
**Mountain Jubilee weekend (April 16-18) is limited to Girl Scouts and the male father figures in their life.
