Have you missed going to summer camp since your girlhood days? Or perhaps you’ve always 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 even 14th time, then Glamp Pin Oak is for you! Combining “glam” and “camp,” Glamp Pin Oak is a unique opportunity for women 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. Click here to read the news release. 

Camp Activities:

Kayaking (Moderate/High*)

Learn the basics of flatwater kayaking, e.g., equipment, entry and exit, strokes, safety, water, and wind. 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.

Girl shooting a bow and arrowArchery (Low/Moderate*)

Like Katniss Everdeen, you too can enjoy this 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.

Campfire Cooking (Low*)

Learn campfire cooking techniques for your next outdoor adventure! Participants will learn how to cook over a campfire and all about Dutch-oven cooking, foil-packet meals, and pie-iron cooking. Food will be provided for participants to prepare and samples will be available.

Papermaking (Low*)

Let your creative side shine! With a few supplies and basic instructions, you will be on your way to making handmade paper. Be prepared to get your hands wet and a bit goopy as you learn the process of making paper and create a sheet to take home.


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 screened cabins do not offer heat or air conditioning. If you are attending Glamp Pin Oak with a friend, just let us know. Our online registration form includes a field for cabin mate requests. We will do our best to accommodate your request.
