What’s more exciting than climbing trees? Getting to spend the night in them!April 29, 2014

And that’s what we’ll be doing at Camp Graham before long. How awesome is that?! There will be six tree house units designed to sleep 6-8 girls each, a bath house, a program pavilion, and a campfire circle.
Girls will be able to get from house to house using a connecting elevated walkway. Camp like an Ewok anyone? One end of the walkway will begin at ground level and climb at a wheelchair friendly slope. There will be a lift as well, allowing those with physical challenges to climb into the trees with their friends.
The bath house will be central to the tree houses, and the group pavilion will sit above it – making the pavilion tree-house like as well!
The campfire circle at the treehouses will be made with special commemorative bricks. Girls, leaders, alumnae, and supporters have the opportunity to be part of a lasting Camp Graham tradition by sponsoring their own personalized brick. Find out how by contacting the Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines fund development team at email@example.com or 800-284-4475.
The tree house project is part of a commitment by Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines to make improvements to camp properties. A ground-breaking ceremony was held March 24, and the project is expected to be complete this summer.
Camp Graham sits on beautiful Kerr Lake. This camp already houses two platform tents, two cabin units, and open fields ideal for tent camping. An open-air amphitheater and dining hall round out the amenities the camp offers.
I can’t wait to go camping in the trees with my troop! How about you?
