Caddoodles

Caddoodles is a volunteer-led program that provides up to 130 older girls with training and experience in outdoor and leadership skills during a four-day overnight camping experience at Camp Lakamaga in mid-August.

Cadette-age campers take part in adventure course, archery, kayaking, canoeing, and program aide training under the leadership of certified adults and Senior and Ambassador caddie assistants. Caddies lead songs, games, fire building, outdoor cooking, arts and crafts, conflict resolution, and a service project alongside adults.

Adult volunteers (from college students to senior citizens) take part at camp, and many enjoy the additional comradery of pre-camp meetings to plan and prepare for camp.

Volunteers are always welcome whether for one day or all four days of camp. Adults who volunteer for the four days can send a Girl Scout in their family to camp for free.

This year, Caddoodles will be Aug. 9-12. We need volunteers:

  • Before camp to train Caddies and assist in meal planning and shopping
  • During camp to oversee meal preparation and pack out, teach archery, and lead adventure course.
  • Adults trained or certified in Program Aide training, archery, small craft safety, adventure course, and basic outdoor skills are always needed.
