Welcome Campers, to another great year at IGGPPCamp! Each year, participants of IGGPPCamp are sorted into ‘Troops’. (This is optional– you can still participate in camp if you don’t sign up for a Troop!) These smaller groups are led by 3 counselors who will help organize Troop specific events and activities. Get to know the Campers in your Troop, show your Troop Pride, and collaborate on the Camp Cup Challenge! This page is your handy guide to all of this year’s Troops and the fantastic and illustrious counselors who will be leading them!

Think happy thoughts and grab some pixie dust, campers! Welcome to Troop Neverland! Be ye a fairy, pirate, merfolk, or “lost camper,” you’ll have a magical time in this troop! Like Peter Pan, Troop Neverland vows to always have fun and never grow up! Just follow the leader, splash in the mermaid lagoon, frolic with fairies, and sail the seas with Hook’s crew. Remember, the second star to the right and straight on till morning!

Our troop is inspired by…..the Legends of Hollywood. While the rest of the world was at war, Hollywood was churning out flicks to help everyone take them away from everyday life. They were transporting us to exotic locations or big cities full of bustle. The media also started to focus more on celebrities. This focus of celebrity showed us pictures of movie premiers, the gowns, the food. These Legends were hoisted up in front of us. These names are still renown today some 80 yrs later.. Garbo, Bogart, Bacall, and Monroe are just a few. Come and join us to do some “Singin’ in the Rain”, visit “Casablanca” or take a trip on the “African Queen”
