  • Clayin' Around - It's time to fire up your imagination as you pinch, mold, and coil clay into pots, sculptures, or beads! Hunt for natural clay on a creek stomp and learn to make clay from ingredients from the kitchen. Then paint and glaze your creations to take home! Girls will work toward their Potter badge. 
  • Fireflies - Nothing lights up camp the way that Fireflies do! Now it’s your turn to shine! Have a glow party and play glow games, make a firefly to take home, and take a moment to look up and learn about some constellations. You'll have plenty of time to take a dip in the pool and try your hand at some campfire cooking. Girls will work toward their Outdoor Adventurer badge. 
  • Neverland Adventures - Come to where dreams are born and time is never planned - Camp Whip Poor Will transforms into Neverland! Hunt for fairies in the woods and search for mermaids in our pool. Build a fairy house to take home to keep the magic alive, and make wind chimes so you always remember the sounds of fairy wings! Then think of a happy thought before you scale to the top of the climbing wall. Girls will work toward their Outdoor Art Creator badge. 
  • Camp It Up! - Camp days are the best days! Whether it’s your first time or you're camp’s biggest fan, come out for a sampling of all the coolest activities at camp. Climb the rock wall, shoot archery, and try out a canoe! You’ll also get the opportunity to make a craft to take home and cook over the fire. Girls will work toward their Camper badge. 
  • Jewelry Rebels - Who said jewelry had to sparkle with jewels? It’s time to create your own brand of jewelry with things you find around camp. You’ll learn how to use the tools of the trade, work with metal, and making jewelry that is as unique as you. Take a break from all of your hard work to cook over a campfire and try out other fun camp activities. 
  • The Lost Girls - Join the Lost Girls for a week of fun, adventure, and mischief! You and your fellow “Lost Girls�? will explore camp to find and build your perfect hideout, lay out under the stars, and work on your archery skills. In true Lost Girls fashion, you’ll also stir up a little mischief, too! You’ll use catapults to launch water balloons during a water balloon fight, hoist your flag up the flag pole without getting caught, and much more! To top it all off, have a sleep-in breakfast at the Lost Girl’s Hideout. Girls will work toward their Camper badge. 
  • Muggle Magic - Your owl arrived -- your acceptance letter is here! Now hop on board the Hogwarts Express! Upon arrival, you'll be sorted into one of our four houses. Don't forget, your achievements will earn you house points! Try out some classes like Potions, Herbology, or Care of Magical Creatures. Try your hand at Quidditch and brew up your own version of butterbeer! 
  • Boots & Saddles - Are you passionate about horses and ready to ride? You’ll head to Dusty Boots Ranch each day to learn the basics of horseback riding. Once your skills are assessed, you’ll either learn how to take care of a horse, practice grooming skills, learn to stop, steer, and control your horse or work on more advanced skills. Go on a trail ride weather permitting. Back at Camp Libbey swim, do target sports, hike, cook out, and much more!
  • Space Cadettes - Become an astronaut in Project Phoenix: Journey to Mars through a simulated space mission with the Challenger Learning Center of Lake Erie West! The year is 2076 and a new routine voyage to Mars has brought the latest human crew into Martian orbit. You will hop aboard the Spacecraft Serenity to relieve a research team that is stationed at the Chryse Weather Station. Both you and the Mars-based crew will be under tight deadlines to gather and analyze mission-critical data and communicate information to the crews aboard the Spacecraft Serenity and in Mars Control! 
  • Adventure Bound - Do you crave adventure? Be ready to learn navigation skills and the basics of backpacking, then scale to the top of the high ropes course! Then prove your skills by conquering the Zanta trail as you backpack to Skandy for an overnight you will never forget. Not enough? Top it all off with a canoe race down the Maumee and a special ride down the zip line! Girls will work towards their Trailblazing badge. 
  • Whitewater Adventurers: The Youghiogheny River - It’s time to grab a paddle and hold on as you set out to conquer the rapids on the Youghiogheny River in Pennsylvania! You and your team will camp out under the stars and prepare your own meals, explore the rapids, and learn to work together. When you’re not on the river, you'll experience the beautiful sites of the Laurel Highlands and even check out one of our nations Top Ten Natural Waterslides! Girls will work toward their Ultimate Recreation Challenge or Adventurer badge.
  • Counselor-in-Training II - This three-week opportunity is for the aspiring camp counselor.
