Friday, Sept. 29 - Sunday, Oct. 1
Have you been craving camp since your girlhood days? Or perhaps you heard how awesome camp is, but have never had the chance to go. If you are an adult woman, and you want to have a magical camp experience for the first or the fourteenth time, then Glamp Pin Oak is for you! Glamp Pin Oak is an opportunity for women to gather together to experience the outdoors and learn to be safe, confident and comfortable in the outdoor environment. All sessions are taught by women and created for women and provide the opportunity to learn by doing.
Learn the basics of flatwater kayaking, e.g., equipment, entry and exit, strokes and safety. By the end of the class, you’ll feel more comfortable on the water, better understand the safety risks around you, and have more fun! Participants will have time to practice and explore.
Like Katniss Everdeen, you too can enjoy a time-honored sport that is growing in popularity. Archery is enjoyable, inspiring and a good work out! This course will cover archery safety, ethics, shooting techniques and equipment selection. Participants will receive personal instruction and adequate time to practice what they learn.
Survival Skills (Low/Moderate*)
The goal for every living creature is to survive. Humans have developed many ways to simplify life and make surviving easier. What if these comforts were taken from you? Learn techniques for short-term wilderness survival including shelter building, fire starting and knot tying. Update your “10 Essentials” and your mind set.
Nature Printmaking (Low*)
Let your creative side shine! This hands-on class will explore pattern and symmetry in art and nature. Participants will have the opportunity to create nature prints to take home using flowers, leaves, fruits and other natural objects.
Glamp Pin Oak will take place at the historic Camp Pin Oak at Lake of the Ozarks State Park. Built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, Camp Pin Oak has been the site for generations of gatherings by nonprofit youth groups such as Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts. Campfire sing-alongs, new friends and outdoor adventures made the camp a lasting memory for youth of all ages. Directions and map will be sent with the confirmation packet.
Glamp Pin Oak offers participants the chance to sleep in a four-person rustic screened cabin. Participants sleeping in the rustic cabins will have single beds, mattresses and storage for personal belongings. Please note that the rustic screed cabins do not offer heat or air conditioning. If you are attending Glamp Pin Oak with a friend, just let us know. There is a field for cabin mate requests on our online registration form. We will do our best to accommodate your request.
*If you are registering with less than four people in your group, there is a chance that you will share a cabin with someone not in your group.
