Every spring, several species of turtles search the shores of Wamplers Lake to lay their eggs. Because of the increasing number of sea walls on the lake, the swimming beach at Camp O’ the Hills is one of the only places the turtles can find a suitable nesting habitat. You will learn how to identify the many species of turtles we have at camp, collect and record data, properly harvest eggs from the nest, and learn how to help ensure a thriving turtle population.

Note: Adult chaperones are required at this event.  Fee includes lodging and the following meals: Friday campfire snack ; Saturday breakfast, lunch, and dinner; and Sunday breakfast.  Lodges are used year-round and have electricity. 3-Season Cabins are hard-sided cabins that do not have electricity. 

Outcome(s): D1, C1, C5, T5

GSHOM’s goal is to offer quality programs to as many girls as possible. At least two adults must accompany every troop/group to an event. In order to serve as many girls as possible, and make sure there is plenty of space to provide the program, troops are asked to keep their adult to girl ratio to the ratio specified in Volunteer Essentials for Events/Programs. Please click here for the link to Safety Activity Checkpoints and refer to page 5.

Troops/groups that register more adults than listed in the ratio listed above may be asked to limit the number of adults to the correct ratio.
