Come meet new friends above and under the sea this week. You and your new two-legged friends will become mermaids and swim into all kinds of adventures. You will make your own bubble wands, spend extra time in the pool and find new underwater friends on a creek hike. Go on a scavenger hunt for sunken pirate treasures and sing all day long. Catch your breath on land when you go on hikes, make sea treasure crafts and relax by the pool.

Pajama party
Come discover the world that comes to life at night. While other campers are sleeping, you’ll search for creatures active at night; watch for shooting stars in the night sky and go for a twilight swim. Campers will sleep in, go to bed late and have plenty of time to enjoy the fun at camp, just on a different schedule.

Choose your own
Spend this week deciding with your group what you would like to do. Choose from all the activities conowingo has to offer.

Homemade by you
There is so much cool stuff out there that you can make yourself and we will show you how! Make your own paper and then learn how to make it into a book. You will also make your own candles, learn scrapbooking tips and make your own lip-gloss. If the wild raspberries and blackberries are ready, we may can our own jam for you to take home. When you need a break, no worries, you can head over to the pool, ropes or just enjoy nature!  Girls in this session should bring four 4×6 photos. You will work on the book artist badge.

The Pennsylvania Expedition
Camp Conowingo is only three miles from the Pennsylvania border and the heart of the Pennsylvania dutch country. Come experience and explore this diverse and interesting area through its people, its food and amusement park. You will spend each night at camp but each day will bring a new adventure. You’ll  visit different farm stands and even go on a tour of a local farm; learn about the amish people and even ride in an amish buggy drawn by horses; spend a day exploring the food and satisfy your sweet tooth with ice cream from the Strasburg Creamery, then learn how pretzels are made during a pretzel bakery tour. If there is time (and room in your stomach), the Herr’s potato chip factory tour will be your last stop of the day. After all of this, you’re going to have to work off some of the delicious food with a trip to Hershey Park where you will spend the day on the amusement rides. Talk about an expedition!
