Due to a surplus of wonderful theme ideas, this year we’re revising how we do our theme voting. Campers will still be presented with 4-5 themes to vote from during this summer’s Ashgrove Adventure, with the final theme chosen and announced on the last day of camp.
However, before we get to that point, all adults and camp aides who attend the February Task Group meeting will pre-vote on the (currently 10) themes that have been presented to Task Group over the last several months. This pre-vote will narrow the long list of themes down to the 4-5 themes the campers will vote on.
Want to cast a vote for which themes will be presented to the campers? Join us at our Task Group meeting on February 16th, 7pm (6:30pm social time) in the Firefly Lodge!
Need a refresher on what the theme options will be? Check out the digital versions of our theme posters! And for those of you who’re wondering, none of these themes have ever been done at camp before (though we’ve done similar themes).
Daisy, Brownie, Junior, Cadette, Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts are invited to enter the Ashgrove Adventure Day Camp Design Contest, to design the Camp Patch and T-Shirt logo! Create a design that captures the current camp theme. Download and print the official 2022 Ashgrove Patch Design Circle Sheet today!
PLEASE DO NOT USE COPYRIGHTED IMAGES IN YOUR DESIGN!
Winners are automatically guaranteed enrollment in Ashgrove. (They still need to apply through GSCNC website).

Planning began in earnest for Ashgrove Adventure 2023 (Jurassic Ashgrove) at our first Task Group meeting of the year. Various dates were ann- uh, proclaimed as well as a revised method of theme voting.
This year, potential 2024 themes will be presented at Task Group from September through February (email Kitti if you want to sign up to present a theme!) and all adults and aides at the February Task Group meeting will vote to narrow the options down to 4-5 themes which will be presented to the campers to vote on during the second week of Ashgrove.
We also spent a fair amount of time on fun themed activities, including a word search and a cookie cutter/fun foam craft project courtesy of Carousel that could be used to make unit name tags or swaps. Instructions are below and will also be handed out to leaders along with other Program theme paperwork in the spring.
The rest of the time we spent brainstorming about dinosaurs and getting excited for Jurassic Ashgrove! We hope to see you there.
Now can I get another drumroll? The theme for next year is…
