If Astronomy (this is the science one, not to be confused with Astrology) is something you’ve always wanted to know a bit more about but weren’t quite sure where to start, welcome to Stargazing 101. Stargazing pricks at the scientist and the poet in all of us and, best of all, it’s free to get started.
S'mores PopTarts, we can take it with us, wherever we go! It doesn't matter if it's to work, shopping or hiking. We just put it in a bag, or box and let's go!
Today I have a yummy and gooey recipe to share with you that's a perfect treat for around the campfire. S'mores in a bag! It's all the yumminess of a s'more but less messy.
Each year the IGGPPC heads off to virtual summer camp. Connecting all across the globe, our online campgrounds host campfire stories, s’mores, movies, crafts, games, and friendships in the making! We asked our Camp Staff and Troop Counselors to share a bit about their camping experiences, both with the IGGPPC and out in the world.
There are a couple of favorite films that come up every year at IGGPPCamp - the 1998 Parent Trap, Addams Family Values, Wet Hot American Summer, Troop Beverly Hills, Friday the 13th - but all of these films are post 1980. As time marches on and we leave the 20th century behind, these films are entering the realm of classic film but, for this year’s Camp, let’s check out some older films. Not all of these are strictly about summer camp but they do all feature camping...in one form or another.
Each year during camp, Campers are grouped into one of three troops and applications are currently being accepted for Troop Counselors. SIX (two counselors per troop) intrepid and engaging iggles are needed to commit some time and some spirit to make camp accessible and fun for Campers! Interested? GREAT! Submit an IGGPPCamp Counselor application! Still not sure? Read on! We’ve asked some of our former Counselors about their experience and what they LOVED about heading up a troop for IGGPPCamp!
