Camp News Update May 2018


Challenge Course Updates

Calling all risk-takers! The brand new challenge course at Camp Wai Lani and the extended zip line at Camp Dorothy Thomas are both now open. We debuted the challenge course at Camp Wai Lani during a live interview on WEDU on Give Day Tampa Bay. A group of Girl Scouts used the climbing wall and cargo net to make their way to the top of the 35 foot tower and down the zip line. The tower offers incredible views overlooking the tree tops of camp and the Gulf of Mexico.

In addition, the newly extended 800 foot zip line at Camp Dorothy Thomas was debuted during the GSWCF Annual Meeting. Three dozen girls and adult members used this opportunity to launch themselves off the tower, through a tunnel of trees and over the lake for a thrilling good time!

Both challenge courses will be available for reservations when troop camping and encampments reservations open later this summer.

Camp Wai Lani Updates

The roof on the pool house at Camp Wai Lani was recently replaced. This update was made possible by funding provided the Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County.  

Some of the mangroves along the waterfront of Camp Wai Lani have been trimmed. This project was approved and permitted by Pinellas County to trim back overgrowth which was blocking access to the dock as well as help increase air flow into camp.
