Description & Activities

2023 Camp Theme: Harry Potter

Description: Come back to Hogwarts Americana! We're slightly differently than Hogwarts UK but we're every bit as much fun. Enjoy dressing up as your favorite character on Harry Potter Day or as a grey tabby like Professor McGonagall for Animagus Day. Find Scabbers and earn a reward! Stop at the Ice Cream Parlour for a sweet treat. Naturally Hermione has read all of the books, but you don't have to - you'll have teachers to lead the way. 

Activities: Slingshots, tomahawks, archery, challenge course, outdoor skills, outdoor cooking, arts and crafts, songs, games, drama, nature/STEM, and hiking.

Camp activities (including field trips, extended hours, and overnights) are offered at the discretion of the camp leadership team and may be modified or canceled to follow COVID-19 restrictions. Camp activities may not be available to all units and can be canceled due to weather or other extenuating circumstances.

Camp Location: Camp Crowell

Bus Transportation: Not available at this camp

Volunteer at Camp!

Camp Crossroads is planned and put on each year by a group of dedicated Girl Scout volunteers! Due to safety ratios, enough adults must volunteer each year for camp to run. Unfortunately, if not enough volunteers sign up, camp will be cancelled. We need your help to ensure that camp can happen this year and that every girl has an amazing camp experience.

Benefits of Volunteering

  • Guaranteed placement for your camper(s) – bypass the lottery and get early registration access in January
  • Reduced registration rate – you could receive 90%-100% off the camp registration fee!
  • Units at camp for sons and preschool-aged children of volunteers - yes, they get to come to camp too!
  • Receive volunteer hours for training and camp days
  • Network with other Girl Scout volunteers in your area
  • Learn new skills, try new things, and take part in fun camp traditions!
