REGISTER HERE FOR HARVEST MOON: REGISTRATION
Camp Harvest Moon 2019 is November 2-3rd. Camp Harvest Moon is located in Malibu Canyon. You can choose to stay one night or Saturday (DAY ONLY). This is a great opportunity for troops to bond and to have a great time in nature. Troops stay together in cute cabins with bunk beds. Cabins sleep 12-13. Larger troops can get several cabins. Troop registration is encouraged. Individual girls and moms are welcome to register as well but please coordinate with your troop first. Troops will share cabins with other troops and cabin mates decorate their cabins in Fall or Halloween themes (optional). Girls attend workshops on Saturday and Sunday. Workshops often include outdoor art, dutch oven cooking, archery, ropes, and more. We do a 6:30am Polar Bear swim and the girls earn a patch after jumping in the brrrrrr cold pool at sunrise. Food is included in the price, so come and enjoy time with your daughter or the troop at Camp Harvest Moon. We always need PA's to come and help run a workshop! PA's get to come up on Friday night for additional leadership training and lots of fun! Camp Harvest Moon is all volunteer run and the kitchen is managed by volunteers. Get ready to enjoy swaps and s'mores and to get back to nature at Camp Harvest Moon!
Cadette, Senior and Ambassador troops get to stay together in a large bunk house with indoor bathrooms. Daisy, Brownie and Juniors stay in cabins. Cabins are heated and each bunk has a twin mattress.

Packing List for Cabin Campers:
Cabin accommodations include foam mattresses and heaters, access to full restrooms and
showers. If your troop does not fill-up a cabin fully, you will have other Girl Scouts in your cabin.
Cabins sleep 12-13 so this is GROUP SLEEPING, not private sleeping. You will get your cabin
assignment at check-in.

Girl Scout policy.
