RISE AND SHINE, CAMPERS!
This is it! The sun is out, the birds are chirping, and the gates to the 2018 IGGPPCamp are flung open wide! Welcome campers to another fun and exciting year of friendships, activities, and s’mores! Your camp directors, staff, activity leads and counselors have been hard at work creating what we hope is a memorable experience over the next four days! Every morning (or whatever time you are in) check the daily camp post to see what’s in store for you that day. While we always encourage the buddy system, if you get lost around the campgrounds, give a holler to us on twitter and we will help you find your way!
Letters From Camp
Each day of camp, I’ll be challenging you to write a letter to do some good in the world. This can be as small or as big as you make it, but I encourage you to push yourself! Today’s challenge is simple: write a thank you note. This could be a thank you to a friend or family member for a gift or act of kindness, but you could even write a note to a favorite teacher or an author or artist whose work you really enjoyed. Share how you are completing this prompt using the #iggppcamp hashtag on Twitter or Instagram. I’d love to see how you go do good!
This year’s camp is focused on doing good in our world and Kristy is here to start us off with a Books Crossing Challenge.
In the Arts & Crafts shed, Zoe will be teaching us how to make Camp Sigil Cross Stitch Project with an introduction to cross stitching!
MAIL CALL! Did you participate in our camp care package swap? Show off your goodies here!

Fresh from our recent trip to SDCC, Joanna is giving away THREE SDCC Swag Bags full of things you might want to take with you on your next camping adventure!
AND don’t forget that we’ve got not one, but TWO giveaways running during camp! Check out the Adorable Mayhem interview and ladybug necklace giveaway!
A bit later today, don’t forget to stop by our Staff Camp Welcome! We’ll be hanging out at the opening campfire telling stories, singing songs, and having a good time.

What does your cabin have planned for today? Are you Troop Schuyler, Troop Guardian, or Troop Lux?
Join Troop Schuyler today to discuss the women who inspire you, and ways you can give back to your community and the world.
Get ready because today in the Troop Lux cabin you will know all the ongoing activities for IGGPPCamp 2018.
Let’s get this party started, Guardians! We’ll jam to our troop mix tape while making an awesome Guardian-inspired garland! And don’t forget our troop scavenger hunt!
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!
We’ve a sneaky surprise we’ve been holding out on! This year we have a fun addition we’ve been keeping from you!
Introducing the Inaugural IGGPPCamp Cup!
This year we are adding a little more fun to our Troops by creating a little friendly competition! There are a ton of activities for you to get involved in with camp, and if you are part of a Troop, be SURE to use your TROOP HASHTAG for them so we can keep track of who’s doing what!
Activities worth points include but are not limited to:
- Participating in the Great Closet Cosplay Challenge
- S’mores creation (photos or it didn’t happen!)
- Performing an act of charity/random act of kindness
- Post photo of a completed (or attempted) IGGPPCamp craft/recipe
- Respond to the daily Letters From Camp challenge
Each activity is worth a different number of points….but part of the surprise is that we won’t tell you exactly how much they are worth! It will be a surprise at the end of camp– and earn your Troop bragging rights for the ENTIRE YEAR (plus a fun digital badge that you can download)!
Not in a Troop? That’s okay! We still want you to participate! If you want to adopt a Troop you can, OR you can participate with just #IGGPPCamp and see if non-Troop campers can beat the Troops at the game!
Here’s to a happy IGGPPCamp!
MUCH LOVE FROM YOUR CAMP DIRECTORS,
