Resident Camp Spotlight: Camp Agnes Arnold

Want the perfect camp experience this summer? Camp Agnes Arnold has everything: tents, cabins or treehouses (yes, treehouses!) to sleep in; a lake to paddle around in your canoe; endless trails to hike; a sparkling swimming pool to cool off in; and, of course, the perfect spot for a Thursday night campfire where you just might spot the elusive Magic Elf. Resident camps kicks off June 15, and if you're still not sure which camp is the right fit for on to learn more about Camp Agnes Arnold. (Check out our posts on Camp Casa Mare & Camp Misty Meadows too!)

Shadow Lake is the main attraction at Camp Agnes Arnold located near Conroe. The lake offers 35 acres of cool, refreshing fun for campers. Girls may enjoy canoeing, swimming, nature study and fishing on Shadow Lake.

The legends of the Magic Elf and Hipper entertain and delight the imaginations of all campers. In addition to the focus of the session, campers also participate in traditional camp activities such as swimming, making crafts, going on hikes, hanging out, archery, playing games and making new friends.

Campers will stay in tents, tree houses or cabin units of 24-36 girls each. With a view of the lake, girls eat most of their meals in the air-conditioned Ann Temple Allen Lodge. Near the lodge, the climate-controlled craft rooms and library/memorabilia room also offer an escape from the summer heat.

Special Interest sessions to check out!
Here is a highlight of just a few of the awesome sessions at Camp Agnes Arnold this summer:

Bug Hunt (Brownies - Back by popular demand!) - Take a really close look at some of the critters that live at camp! Are the bugs at night different than the bugs in the day? How do earthworms move? How do ants take care of their families? How do bees talk? Discover the answers to these and many other questions at Camp Agnes Arnold! Earn the Bugs Badge.

Curtain Call (Juniors) - Lights, Camera, ACTION! Do you just love being in front of a crowd? Maybe you want to work on your improv or try out for the school play next fall. Come learn some theater techniques and star in a production for the parents on closing night.

Updated! Fundamentals of Canoeing (Cadettes, Seniors & Ambassadors) – Interested in becoming a canoe aide? Do you love paddling around Shadow Lake? Come to Camp Agnes Arnold to earn your Fundamentals of Canoeing certification (and maybe join us later in the summer as a canoe aide!)
