General Sessions - Girls Entering 2nd-12th Grades
Bring your sense of adventure and your imagination! In true
Girl Scout style you will flex your leadership skills as you work with
your counselors to choose from all that Camp NOARK offers to plan your
week. Tie dye your camp shirt, swim at Withrow Springs State Park,
star gaze, cookout your dinner, roast marshmallows, play water games
and more, more, more! We can’t wait to see you this summer.
Horse Sessions - Girls Entering 2nd-12th Grades
The Camp NOARK Horsemanship Program gives girls of all ages and
abilities a chance to ride and care for horses in a safe, fun and
challenging way! Girls are placed into our program based on age AND
ability. Beginning, young, or nervous riders start at Level 1 and will
ride at least twice during their session (riders with experience
outside our program, contact us directly to be placed into a level).
As riders progress, we offer more lesson time and introduce new
skills. All riders will leave with a Riding Progress Report showing
their accomplishments and exiting Riding Level. Girls aren’t
guaranteed to move up in level each year. We teach riding from the
“ground up” rather than “saddle down” and a portion of each lesson
(lessons include 1-2 hours of time at the barn) is spent on barn
chores because it is important for girls to learn responsibility by
caring for their horses.
Arbor Dale Session - Girls Entering 7th grade +
Rising Cadettes and up with a drive for independence and
adventure will begin their session at Pooh Corner while they learn the
skills and plan for the living unit of their own creation! Experienced
campers and adventurous beginners are welcome! Arbor Dale is a
signature of the Camp NOARK experience!
Leader in Training (LIT) Sessions - Girls Entering 9th-10th Grades
LITs will choose a program area of focus and develop their
skills as they assist in camp program. A balance between growth and
recreation is important to LIT, so they can expect to have time for
planning their own fun as well. LIT is not a prerequisite to the CIT
Counselor in Training (CIT) 1 Sessions - Girls Entering 11th-12th Grades
CIT 1 girls will balance their time at camp between working
with younger campers, developing their counseling skills, planning and
implementing camp program, and creating their own fun.
Counselor in Training (CIT) 2 Sessions - Girls Entering 12th Grade
CIT 2 girls dig deeper into the ways campers learn and grow,
focus on personal development, and work closely within camper units to
assist with daily life. Time for rest and fun is part of their camp experience.
