Gaga Pit: Gaga is a fast paced, high energy sport played in an octagonal pit. The more players the better! Dubbed a kinder gentler version of dodge ball, the game is played with a soft foam ball, and combines the skills of dodging, striking, running, and jumping, while trying to hit opponents with a ball below the knees. Players need to keep moving to avoid getting hit by the ball. Fun and easy, everyone gets a serious workout. Instructions and balls are located on site.
Beatrice the Butterfly: This is one of the many Environmental patches that can be earned by visiting GSC properties. Girls will learn about Butterflies and other insects that are native to Celia Lane as well as other activities. A digital copy of the manual will be sent 2 weeks prior to arrival. Instructions and supplies for all the activities are provided on location. Each session runs approximately 3 hours.
Mailbox Trails: Are a unique outdoor educational opportunity with activities at each mailbox. These trails are a great way to get familiar with the camp grounds and learn about environmental science. Each mailbox includes instruction and materials for self-led activities. Completion time for each trail varies based on: age of the group, size of the group and weather. Please allow at least 1-2 hours per trail.
