Camp El-O-Win
THE Place to BE this summer!

Friends of Camp El-O-Win offers its 10th year of exciting camping programs for girls 6-18 years old.  Camp Opening events welcome volunteers to help get El-O-Win ready for a summer of giggling, happy, enthusiastic campers.  You could be one!

Throughout the summer, groups are allowed to camp, plan and cook a few or all of their own meals and plan their own programs or participate in offered activities.

In June, West Hills College brings their Upward Bound and Leadership Academy groups to camp.  Both groups come to help and to would not be the same without them!  He & Me, a Father/Daughter event is always a hit.  Camp El-O-Win's Open House on June 22nd offers camp tours for new campers and memories for "old timers".

July is packed!  Mommy and Me and Teddy Makes Three invites moms, daughters and a stuffed animal friend to venture into the "wilds' of Camp El-O-Win.  Iron Chef El-O-Win returns as young chefs plan, prepare and are judged on their best meal.  The Girl Scout Council is offering a weeklong high adventure experience for older girls called Mountain DO!  The month ends with Crafts by the Creek, a 4 day adult-only event spent in crafting and eating sumptuous cuisine.

In August, Friends and Family Camp rounds out the summer.  Everyone is welcome!  On August 16, the New Bridge Dedication event will be held.  A buffet lunch is being served so please register here by August 11th.  The Dedication Ceremony will be followed by the first annual Dinkey Duck Race.  Buy YOUR duck (or a whole "raft" of the (quackers) when you register for the Bridge Dedication.

Camp Closing on September 20 is when Camp El-O-Win is cleaned up, packed up and readied for a long winter's sleep under a blanket of snow.

A Campership Program offers financial assistance to campers in need.  And for the second year, parents can register their daughters for camp online.

Returning to the traditional multi-night Resident Camp format is the future of Camp El-O-Win.  With the bridge in place and a commitment to give every Central Valley girl who wants to attend camp that possibility, Friends of Camp El-O-Win continues to offer camping programs that change girl's lives!
