OPENING FALL 2020!
Here at Girl Scouts Western Oklahoma, we believe getting girls outdoors plays a pivotal role in developing leadership skills. And what better way to do that, than to also connect them to their community through valuable partnerships and experts in Oklahoma City’s vibrant community. Whether girls are experiencing their very first overnight away from home, interacting with animals and conservation experts to help preserve endangered species, or working as a team to create a robot that functions under water in a pool, Camp Trivera will give girls unmatched opportunities.
And we are so excited to announce, construction has just begun on Camp Trivera – an urban STEM focused camp – in the Adventure District! It will sit on approximately 17 acres of a 40-acre parcel just east of the Oklahoma City Zoo & Botanical Gardens, and will serve Girl Scouts, families and the community alike.
From learning about aerodynamics ziplining across the lake to the OKC Zoo to testing their geological knowledge while climbing the indoor rock wall, these unique features, and many more STEM “surprises” that can be found across the property, are sure to have an impact on girls and inspire the next generation of leaders. It will also provide girls the opportunity to be comfortable in the outdoors – camping, hiking, kayaking – while also having indoor spaces for first time campers who aren’t quite sure about traditional camping just yet.
While this camp was designed primarily for the girls, it is for everyone! When the camp is not in use by Girl Scouts, community groups, organizations and families, like yours, can rent out the camp for your own adventures.
This truly is a labor of love for the entire community. A large part of that is due to the capital campaign co-chairs, Myrla Pierson and Linda Whittington. These two go-getters have been instrumental in building community interest and support, as well as ensuring Camp Trivera will build a legacy for Girl Scouts now and in the future.
