Week 1 - June 10-15, 2018 - Camp Whip Poor Will
- 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 Adventurers - 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.
- Climbers R Us - It’s time to take a challenge and scale to new heights. Begin on the ground learning to spot and work together as a team to complete challenges. Then conquer the climbing wall and work as a team with your camp friends to build the tallest crate tower in the history of camp! You’ll still have plenty of time to make a tasty treat over the fire and take a dip in the pool.
- You Did What at Camp? - Did you ever want to take a midnight swim? Or raid the kitchen to create an ultimate snack? How about make a huge fort to sleep in? Use this week to create a unique camping experience that reinvents what it means to camp! You and your bunkmates will have the opportunity to plan new and crazy things to do while still having time to enjoy some more traditional options like the climbing wall and archery. Girls will work toward their Camper badge.
- Canoe Escape - Enjoy relaxing on Four Winds Lake as you learn the ins and out of canoeing. Paddle with a partner while you learn different stroke and how to maneuver a canoe. Play canoe games and try your hand at building your own floating raft. Test your skills with a relaxing float trip down the Little Miami River. When you’re not on the lake try your hand at archery, the climbing wall, and make a craft or two to take home. Girls will work on their Camper badge.
- Horsin' Around - Are you ready to get on a horse for the first time? You’ll head to Camp Kern each day to learn the basics of horseback ride! 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 Whip Poor Will, you'll swim, do target sports, hike, cook out, and much more! Juniors will work towards their Horse badge.
- Saddle Up - Are you ready to take your riding to the next level? Spend each day at Camp Kern where you’ll work on more advanced skills. Go on a trail ride, weather permitting.

Prerequisites: Girls must have attended Horsin' Around or Saddle Up during previous years at camp or other horse experience. Juniors will work towards their Horse badge.
- Climb On! - It’s all about the equipment -- ropes, helmet, harness, and hardware. You’ll become the master of all of them! You’ll climb, rappel, and traverse sky-high elements on Camp Whip Poor Wills brand new high challenge course and experience the zip line. But that’s only half the fun! Head out of camp for an overnight camp experience and master another climbing challenge. When you need a break from the heights, choose other camp activities like swimming, archery, and more!
- Voyagers - Become a true voyager by spending your week on the waters of Four Winds Lake. Perfect your paddling skills in either a canoe or kayak or both! Work with a team to build your own raft and race against your fellow Voyagers. Then head to the Little Miami River and put your skills to the test. Spend the night camped along the river listening to the water while watching the stars.
- Smokey Mountain Llama Trek - Explore the beauty of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most visited national park in America. Spend the week away from Camp Whip Poor Will camping in Tennessee where you will visit some of the most iconic sites the Smokies have to offer. The highlight of the trip will be your overnight Llama trekking experience! You will learn the basics of backpacking, llama care, and how to pack the camping gear on the llama before heading into the woods. You’ll spend one night on the trail with your new llama friends! At the end of your adventure you’ll head back to Camp Whip Poor Will for final campfire on Thursday.
