Have you missed going to summer camp since your girlhood days? Or perhaps you’ve always heard how awesome camp is, but have never had the chance to go. If you are an adult woman and you want to have a magical camp experience for the first or even 14th time, then Glamp Pin Oak is for you! Combining “glam” and “camp,” Glamp Pin Oak is a unique opportunity for women to experience the outdoors and learn to be safe, confident and comfortable in the outdoor environment. All sessions are taught by women and created for women and provide the opportunity to learn by doing. 

Camp Activities:

Learn campfire cooking techniques for your next outdoor adventure! Participants will learn how to cook over a campfire and all about pie-iron cooking. Food will be provided for participants to prepare, and samples will be available.

Kayaking (Moderate/High*)

Learn the basics of flat-water kayaking, including areas such as equipment, entry and exit, strokes, safety, water, and wind. By the end of the class, you’ll feel more comfortable on the water, better understand the safety risks around you, and have more fun! Participants will have time to practice and explore.

Nature Journaling (Low*)

Documenting what you come across out in nature using lists, drawings and photos is a great way to help make your time in nature more memorable. The focus of this activity will be on learning how to document and photograph the cool things you can find out in nature! Journals, pencils, colored pencils and instant-print cameras will be provided for this session.

Historical Outdoor Skills (Low*)

Discover your own inherent ability to throw an atlatl, start a fire, and navigate in this historical outdoor skills program. No prior experience necessary!

Tie-Dye (Low*)

Tie-dyeing is a method of dyeing by hand in which colored patterns are produced in the fabric by gathering together many small portions of material and tying them tightly with string before immersing the cloth in the dye bath. Each participant will receive one item to tie-dye and will also be permitted to bring one item from home to also tie-dye during the session. It is recommended that you bring a white T-shirt or other cotton blend item for this activity.

Location

Glamp Pin Oak will take place at the historic Camp Pin Oak at Lake of the Ozarks State Park. Built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, Camp Pin Oak has been the site for generations of gatherings by nonprofit youth groups such as Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts. Campfire sing-alongs, new friends and outdoor adventures have made the camp a lasting memory for youth of all ages. Directions and a map will be sent with the confirmation packet.
