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!

Welcome to Troop Memory! As the years pass something that we hold onto are the memories that we have made along the way. Do you remember your first IGGPPCamp? Your first troop? How about your favorite penpal round or is there something you are looking forward to? Old memories can even make way to new memories in the future. This is indeed a year to remember!
