Description

Bring your friends! Grab your parents and siblings, too! Get a taste for adventure racing by taking to the trails of Camp Laughing Waters with your team of two to four people. Run, bike, and use a map to navigate your way from point to point during this two-hour race. * Everyone will be challenged to a fun course full of obstacles—you may get wet or muddy, but you’re guaranteed to have fun.

Afterward, spend the day at camp from 12:30 - 4p.m. for a Camp Fun Day! Try your hand at archery, disc golf, gaga, and volleyball. Enjoy a picnic lunch (self-provided), while you listen to the sounds of our house DJ. Check out our awesome partners at the partner pavilion and meet Girl Scouts from all areas of our council.
