There’s a reason we call Camp Benson the 113-acre memory maker. You’ll have an opportunity to brave Camp Benson’s very own cave! This dark and cold hike is filled with all kinds of cool things, even stealthy bats. A trip down the 3-story-tall zip-line might be just the rush you’re looking for. Take a leisurely hike through the grotto, or climb aboard your sled and take the plunge down the 240-foot long Twilight Zone tube slide. If you have a desire for adventure, Adventure Camp Overnight is for you!
This is also easy and convenient for troop leaders/adults. Meals are provided in the modern dining hall and sleeping accommodations include heated/air-conditioned cabins with real doors and windows. Girls must be accompanied by an adult. Depending upon troop sizes, troops may be assigned to sleeping cabins with other troops.
