Rookie Weekend

About the Weekend

Campers can bring their mom, dad, or other adult family members to base camp for an adventure-filled few days. Explore the Preserve on Mentor Hikes with our Senior Mentors and trained naturalists. Laugh, learn, and challenge yourselves with archery, canoeing, and other camp activities. Plunge into GRP traditions - from reverent council fires to irreverent Ortman and Scrappy antics. Throughout the weekend we will hike some of the favorite GRP trails, explore various camp activities, and come together for meals, evening programs and free time. Unplug, slow down, and play in the woods.

Dates and registration info coming soon!

Idea behind the Weekend

The Parent Child Weekend is just that: time with your mom or dad experiencing camp! It is the perfect opportunity for younger siblings and first-time campers to try sleep away camp alongside the comfort of family. Future campers can meet our directors and staff, learn their way around camp, and feel right at ease when they decide to return on their own for a summer session.

Rookie Weekend aims to create a classic GRP camp experience centered around inclusivity and respect. We hope to have aunts and nieces, grandfathers and grandsons, as well as fathers with sons or daughters and mothers with daughters or sons. In short, while the weekend is focused on getting new campers comfortable with camp, the whole family is invited. If you have a unique family situation or any questions, please let us know.
