Get to Know More About Girl Fest

Girl Fest is a new outdoor family experience where all things GIRL will be celebrated! Girls will have an opportunity to have fun outdoors exploring the beautiful property of Camp Tongawood and visiting 50+ hands-on activity stations hosted by our Community Partners and our very own outdoor and adventure staff. All areas will be represented, including STEM, arts, outdoor experiences, sports, healthy living, and more. Girls get to experience the magic of camp, fun Girl Scout traditions, sing-a-longs, and meet wildlife!

We will also have a fun Girl Fest Trading Post on site where you can purchase all those GIRL-POWERED items.
