Hundreds of Girls Gear Up to Hit the Water At Camp Tanglefoot!

Special Camp Preview to take place at Family Fun Festival on June 8th 



CLEAR LAKE, Iowa – With a fleet of more than 30 beautiful boats, canoes, paddle boards, and paddle boats, hundreds of girls from across Iowa are gearing up to hit the water at Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa (GSGI) Camp Tanglefoot! 

GSGI is ecstatic to kick off the 2013 camp season, where girls learn important lessons about trust, team-building, friendship, and confidence in fun and unique ways at each of our three camps.
Camp Tanglefoot, located on Clear Lake, has a number of exciting activities to offer girls this summer, including boating, sailing, canoeing, paddle boarding, and tons of other water sports!
Girls will also have the chance to sign up for several new programs including “Extreme Experiments” and “Theater Bug,” as well as long-time favorites like “11 Day Adventure Bound,” where girls backpack, mountain bike, and canoe for 11 straight days!

Additionally, girls will get to “see the world” right at camp, where five international counselors from countries like Poland and Ireland will spend the summer.
With a world of options at camp this summer, we know the 2013 season will be the best yet!

To kick off the camp season, we will be hosting a “Family Fun Festival” at Camp Tanglefoot on Saturday, June 8th from 1:00 – 4 p.m.  At this fun and informative event, girls and their families will have the chance to tour camp, learn more about our events and programs, and make new friends!  Weather permitting, attendees will also have the opportunity to try out camp activities including: boating, archery, crafts, face painting, low ropes course, and carnival games!  Contact Camp Director Julia Cira to register by emailing her at or calling 641-357-2481.
