"Summer at Hogwarts"... back by popular demand! Join your favorite wizard, Harry Potter, for summer at Hogwarts. Come dressed as your favorite character on Harry Potter Day. Find Ron's pet Scabbers. Stop at Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour. Naturally, Hermione has read all the books but you don't have to enjoy the fun!


Camp Crossroads may offer the following high adventure activities:

  • Challenge Course Low Ropes (current K and above)
  • Challenge Course High Ropes (current 4th grade and above)
  • Tomahawk
  • Slingshot
  • Archery

All activities follow Girl Scout safety standards and specific activities will be tailored for the ages of the campers. There is no guarantee that these activities will be offered, and sometimes activities are canceled for safety reasons (usually weather issues.)


Placement at Camp Crossroads is by lottery. Everyone who registers during the appropriate window will have an equal opportunity to win a place in the lottery.


Camp Crossroads is 100% volunteer run. We need full-time volunteers at camp (Adult and Teen Staff) as well as part-time volunteers (Helping Hands) before, during, and after camp.

Girl Scout children of full-time Adult Staff attend camp for a greatly reduced fee, and their boys and pre-schoolers may also attend for a small additional fee. Daughters of Helping Hands volunteers pay the full fee, but they are guaranteed placement (no lottery).

Adult and Teen Staff must complete an application on our website starting in January (stay tuned for dates and deadlines!). Helping Hands volunteers fill out an application on our website to enter our Helping Hands lottery starting in February (see the Important 2024 Dates section for all deadlines!) For more details, see the "Volunteer" sections, as well as our Frequently Asked Questions.

Teen Staff Training Program (AIT 1 & AIT 2)

AITs enter the regular "camper" lottery on the GSCNC website. If accepted, AITs must attend a mandatory training session in May and another one in June. Failure to participate in these trainings will cause the camper to be changed to a non-AIT unit. There will be no refunds as the refund date will have passed.
