We are excited that you are considering a resident camp opportunity at Camp Molly Lauman or a High Adventure camp program for your daughter! Camp is a place for girls to grow and develop, build confidence, and make new friends in a safe and nurturing environment. We understand that choosing to send your daughter to camp can be a tough decision and hope that you will find the following information helpful.
It is our goal that a girl at resident camp will:
- Work in a democratic partnership with camp staff to help select, plan, and carry out environmentally sound program activities.
- Practice human-relation skills by living harmoniously with others in a culturally diverse environment.
- Grow in self-esteem through her interaction with others and by planning and participating in program activities.
- Have fun while learning new skills.
Benefits and anticipated outcomes from a camp experience include development in the following areas:
1. Social Skills – leadership, communication, and participation.
2. Self-Respect, Character Building, responsibility, resourcefulness, and resilience.
3. Community Living/Service – caring, fairness, citizenship, and trustworthiness.
Camp Molly Lauman is located in Southern Ohio, on 173 wooded acres in Scioto Co. The property features a modern, air-conditioned dining hall, five platform tent units, a cabin unit, a yurt unit, a 25-meter pool with diving board and climbing wall, a brand new amphitheater and team challenge course, and rustic nature and arts cabins
The general program at camp includes swimming daily, cooking out over a fire, hiking, and many other activities. Each girl participates in arts and crafts, nature, and gardening sessions with program specialists. Girls have many choices when they arrive at camp and their group may elect to participate in activities such as making ice cream, archery, playing games, creeking, or singing. Programs that feature a specialized interest area may have less time for extra activities, but will try to offer as many things as possible.
Programs in the Camp Brochures are listed by Girl Scout age level and correspond with the grade that the camper is currently completing, not the grade they will be entering in the fall. The Camp Guide will be mailed to the household of every registered Ohio's Heartland Girl Scout in late January. It will also be available for download from the website.
Once girls are registered for high adventure programs, they will receive a confirmation packet that will include a payment schedule, packing list, tentative itinerary, waivers, etc. For most trips, girls will only need to provide the basic camp clothing, sleeping bag, water bottle, etc. Tents, backpacks, lifejackets, stoves, cook kits, etc. will be provided by the council or trip provider.
Depending upon the girl response, a limited number of adult spaces may be available for each trip. We are also seeking experienced adults who would be interested in leading any of these trips. Please contact Karen Goodin at email@example.com.
Camp Molly Lauman is proud to be accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA). According to the ACA, "The main purpose of the ACA accreditation program is to educate camp owners and directors in the administration of key aspects of camp operation, particularly those related to program quality and the health and safety of campers and staff. The standards establish guidelines for implementing policies, procedures, and practices." Visit the ACA's website to learn more about the accreditation process.
