Observe and record the amazing turtle nesting season at Camp O' the Hills. During the month of June, the native Michigan turtle species come into camp for the annual nesting season. Learn to build nesting boxes and predator screens to help save the nests and identify the different native species. Help collect and document one of the wonders of nature for our annual report.

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

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.
