Hundreds of girls enjoyed resident camp this summer at Cherokee Ridge, Finbrooke, Latonka, and Mintahama Program Centers. But just because resident camp has come to an end does not mean that the camp pathway has slowed down. If you had the chance to attend resident camp this summer, we would love your feedback so we can make resident camp even better next year. Please click the links below and complete a short survey.
