Camp Gold Hollow Resident Camp offers an outdoor experience that is perfect for first time and experienced campers alike. Mornings at Gold Hollow, campers build their day by choosing from a variety of activities and new experiences; canoeing, cook outs, arts & crafts, archery, hiking and orienteering are popular options. Of course, our traditional program showcases our most popular activities, games, and traditions such as Polar Bear swim, Counselor Hunt, CGH Talent show, and Tajar sightings. Sleeping outdoors on platforms and cots and sharing meals in the great lodge with their counselor and cabin group, offers a chance for new and seasoned “Gold Hollowers” to spend days experiencing new adventures and building lifelong friendships.

Teens-in-Action is youth-led and youth-driven; a unique opportunity for teens to collectively work together and decide within the first day at camp how they want to serve their camp community. With the support of a trained counselor, group members will learn to make decisions, plan their efforts, and implement their plan. Our trained staff will help guide and support the group as they carry through their ideas to achieve the intended results. Teens will be expected to identify camp needs, issues, or challenges; decide what issues they want to advocate for; and then take action. Each teen completing this program will receive certification for at least 15-20 hours of service learning during their stay at camp. Note: There is no early bird registration discount for Teens in Action
