Family Fun Weekend Session
July 17-18, 2021             Ages 6 – 21                      Cost: $55     

Application Process: 

For over 40 years, Girl Scouts Heart of the South has hosted the Elizabeth Gwin Special Session, an inspiring resident camp program that allows children with special needs to experience and explore their capabilities in the great outdoors.

This session is staffed with well-qualified and experienced adults who provide challenging, safe and fun opportunities to each camper that are adapted to meet individual’s needs and are designed to help them grow, be creative and have fun.

Exciting and enriching activities include games, swimming, canoeing, fishing, hiking, crafts, outdoor cooking and skills, horseback riding, singing, all-camp final campfire and wish boats. All-camp special events are held daily including a carnival, theme parties, and a dance.

Girls and boys ages 6 – 21 who have special needs are encouraged to apply for the six day, five night, residential camp program held at Camp Tik-A-Witha, an American Camp Association Accredited Camp.

Resuming in 2022 and running concurrently is the Let’s All Play Session open to  girls and boys entering grades 6 -10 who are interested in learning, inclusion, having fun and meeting new friends at camp. Pairing EG campers with campers from Let’s All Play creates a special friendship that benefits both children. 

The cost to attend this year's Elizabeth Gwin Special Session Family Fun Weekend is $55 and includes all activities, accommodations and meals. Partial financial assistance is available thanks to the generosity of many service organizations, businesses and individuals.
