DEN­TON — The Girl Scouts of the Ch­e­sa­peake is host­ing the inau­gu­ral Goose Bump Jump, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Satur­day, Jan. 21, to raise money to make im­prove­ments at Camp Todd out­side Den­ton in prepa­ra­tion for this com­ing sum­mer’s camp pro­grams.

Par­tic­i­pants can take a dip in Lake Wil­lis­ton ev­ery hour on the hour, hang­ing out in the warm Todd Me­mo­rial Hall pro­gram cen­ter in be­tween, danc­ing to DJpro­vided mu­sic, com­plet­ing crafts or en­joy­ing the hot bev­er­ages and food for sale. Par­tic­i­pants can also skip the lake and just en­joy the ac­tiv­i­ties in the pro­gram cen­ter if they pre­fer.

The cost is $7 per per­son for reg­is­trants ages 5 and up un­til Wed­nes­day, Jan. 11; after Jan. 11, the cost is $10 per per­son. Day-of reg­is­trants are wel­come.

To pre-reg­is­ter, email Ch­eryl Price at lindy4413@ ya­hoo.com.

Ranger Bob Foote said the camp, which is open to the pub­lic April through Oc­to­ber ex­cept for five weeks in June and July when girls’ sum­mer camps are hosted, has a re­volv­ing “wish list” of equip­ment and im­prove­ments.

Foote said on that wish list now are more stand up pad­dle­boards, more archery equip­ment and im­prove­ments to the lake’s dock area.

Camp Todd is lo­cated at 25012 Beauchamp Road, Den­ton.

Com­pa­nies or groups that wish to do­nate can do that as well, by email­ing Price at the above email ad­dress.
