New Features include a boardwalk to explore the wetland and a natural playground, where girls can stroll, climb, play, relax, and gather with friends.
The Ginny & John Elam Environmental Center at Camp Ken-Jockety is a facility dedicated to providing natural science, arts and recreation, outdoor skills and teambuilding programs to Girl Scouts, school groups and other youth-based organizations.
The Elam Center is known for programs that use the natural environment to foster leadership skills, to build self confidence and to develop respect for the interdependence of all living things. Each participant in an Elam program will learn and grow from her experience.
The Elam Center offers a variety of programs and special events for Girl Scouts year-round. Pick-A-Programs are designed as troop programs that you schedule at a time and date that is convenient for you, while special events take place throughout the year for specific age groups. Program opportunities can be found in the latest issue of myGSOH.
Whether your troop is working on a specific Girl Scout Journey or badge, or simply wants to participate in a new or familiar fun activity, our Pick-A-Program options offer flexibility and many choices so that you can customize your program to meet your group's specific interests. You may also wish to view the programs calendar for information about upcoming events.
In addition to our Girl Scout program offerings, we also have activities for Boy Scouts, school groups, youth groups and birthdays. Please contact us for more information about these programs.
There are a number of volunteer opportunities at Camp Ken-Jockety and the Elam Environmental Center. Most special events are run with the help of Girl Scout volunteers age 11 and up and our summer Day Camp is run entirely by volunteers. We are also in need of volunteers to assist with delivering programs, preparing for events, and general camp maintenance. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Elam Explore Store is now open! Items available include fun plush animals, toys and games, nature guides and activities, apparel, and much more. The store will be open during Elam Center events.
