Summer Roundup is an all-volunteer run camp that will take place for the 33rd year in 2019. Held at Camp Todd, on the shores of Lake Williston in Denton, Maryland, Summer Roundup takes advantage of the many resources in and around the camp and offers camp activities such as swimming, boating, hiking, wall climbing, archery, zip lining, and more. Girls will engage in programs ranging from digital photography to horseback riding, crafts, and indoor and outdoor cooking. The volunteers at Summer Roundup are certified to lead their programs and strive to provide the best camp experience ever. Campers all earn patches and sometimes earn retired Girl Scout patches such as the Paddle, Pole, and Roll IP or the Make it, Eat Try It. Come join the fun!
