MAKE IT CAMPY
TEENS & PRE-TEENS
Camp Segonku is one of only two camps in Oregon and SW Washington to offer the Program Aide In Training (PAIT) program. The girls will spend the week learning all about how to become a Program Aide (PA) and will have the opportunity to assist younger girls in their units. Upon completion of the PAIT program, campers will return to camp the following summer as a PA. This type of "camp counselor" training is a valuable asset for future job resumes, and college applications. Program Aide hours can also be counted as community service for clubs and schools.
Songs & Games
Every day at Camp Segonku is full of a wide variety of games, activities & crafts. Campers enjoy searching for Willow Wood Fairy's house in the woods so they can leave her notes full of curious questions. Willow writes back to each camper every day and sprinkles notes with fairy dust, then her home magically appears in another part of the forest for campers to find the next day.
What do campers need to bring to camp?
The girls will receive their camp t-shirt on Monday and we ask that she wear it to camp every day. Campers will also need to bring a backpack with a water bottle and a sack lunch. Dressing in layers is encouraged and hiking boots or sneakers are best (shoes with open toes/backs & sandals are not permitted.) Medications must be in the original container with the camper's name and the name and strength of the medication.
Camp Segonku is always in need of volunteers and we are a pretty fun group of adults acting goofy and making memories, all for the girls of course.
Please do not send your child to camp sick. Campers are not allowed in the water at any time. Flip flops and shoes with open toes/backs or sandals are not permitted. For these rules and other safety guidelines click on Read More.
PAIT, PA, CIT Programs
Girls grades 7-12 (in fall 2021) will learn new skills and expand their leadership experience through our comprehensive training programs. Developing relationships with Girl Scout leaders who could serve as professional references for scholarship, job and college applications is another advantage for teens.
