Summer at Hogwarts

Oakton, VA

7/17/2017 - 7/21/2017

9:00 AM - 3:45 PM

Back by popular demand! “Summer at Hogwarts” Join your favorite wizard, Harry Potter, for summer at Hogwarts. Come dressed as your favorite character on Harry Potter Day. Find Ron’s pet Scabbers. Stop at Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlour. Naturally, Hermione has read all the books but you don’t have to! See our website, www.campcrossroads.org, for more details.

Camp Crossroads is 100% volunteer run.  We need full-time volunteers at camp (Adult & Teen Staff) and part-time volunteers before, during and after camp (Helping Hands).  Girl Scout children of Adult Staff attend camp for free (small fee for boys and pre-school).  Children of Helping Hands volunteers pay the full fee, but they are guaranteed placement (no lottery).  Adult and Teen Staff must apply on an application on our website starting January 11th.  Helping Hands volunteers fill out an application on our website to enter our Helping Hands lottery starting on February 13th.  For more details push the "Volunteer" button on the left and see our "Frequently Asked Questions".

 

Camp Crossroads Teen Staff Training Program (called AIT at many camps) is called the On the Way to Leader (OWL) program.  OWLs must attend a mandatory training session on June 11th, 11:30am to 8:30pm.  OWLs enter the regular "camper" lottery on the GSCNC website.

Placement at Camp Crossroads is by lottery.  Everyone who registers between February 15, 2017 and March 10, 2017 will have an equal opportunity to win a place in the lottery.

No More Overnight.  A change for Camp Crossroads 2017 will be the elimination of the overnight for 4th-9th graders on Friday night. Over the last few years the number of girls participating in this event has declined - less than 50% of the eligible girls sign up to spend the night. We've decided to return to the traditional day camp model where girls do not spend the night.

Camp Crossroads may offer the following high adventure activities:

- Archery (current 4th grade and above only)
- Challenge Course Low Ropes (current K and above)
- Challenge Course High Ropes (current 4th grand and above)

All activities follow Girl Scout safety standards and specific activities will be tailored for the ages of the campers.  There is no guarantee that these activities will be offered and sometime activities are canceled for safety reasons (usually weather issues).
