Ready to go camping at beautiful Lake Snowden?  You'll spend half a day at Gentle Hill Farm learning horseback riding, and then head back to camp to relax or get active- your choice! There are opportunities to swim, kayak, fish, and hike on your free time! On Saturday night, you'll meet a real astronomer and study the stars with a telescope.  Includes a fun patch.

Includes meals, horseback riding, and all camping fees. You are encouraged to bring your own tent and camping supplies, but a limited number of tents are available for you to request prior to the event.  If you will require a tent, please submit your request to us at least three weeks before the date of the event.

Certain activities at Lake Snowden, like renting kayaks or canoes, have an extra cost.  You will have the option of arranging these activities separately with Lake Snowden during your free time at camp.  More information about Lake Snowden rentals:

Girls will attend Gentle Hill Farm (five minutes from Lake Snowden) for a half day of learning about horses and a horseback riding lesson.  Girls should wear long pants and sturdy shoes or boots with a small heel for their first time at the horse farm.  Riding helmets are required and will be provided.  Girls will depart for Gentle Hill Farm in four groups of ten- two groups will ride on Saturday and two groups will ride on Sunday.  You will be notified no less than three weeks before the event which time block each girl is assigned to.  We will make every attempt possible to schedule girls in the same troops in the same time block.

Other than meals, an astronomy activity, and a campfire, activities will not be planned for girls while they are at Lake Snowden- groups should plan ahead of time how they will occupy themselves during their down-time.  Individual girls who register will be communicated with ahead of time to pair them with a group of similar interests.  Check out the Lake Snowden website for rentals, trail maps, and a full list of activities available at Lake Snowden.
On Sunday, girls who have completed their horseback riding at Gentle Hill Farm will have the option of remaining at Camp Snowden until 5PM or departing at their own convenience.
