Welcome to Cadettes Extravaganza

May 11 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT


Come one and all to the Welcome To Cadettes Extravaganza! This event at Camp Twin Canyon is perfect for 5th graders (rising Cadettes/ bridging to Cadettes) as well as their adults and leaders too!

With fun rotations led by older girl scouts, come and find out about all the awesome opportunities that come with being an Older Girl Scout! We’ll have opportunities to do some of your favorite Girl Scout crafts like tie-dye, friendship bracelets, and lip balm making, plus some outdoors and adventure fun like scavenger hunt hikes and archery, and delicious snacks at our gourmet s’mores bar!

Ever thought of traveling with Girl Scouts, getting a Silver or Gold award, or becoming a camp counselor? We will have a panel discussion with older scouts who have done many of these things as well as an expo with representatives from our older Girl Scout committees and interest groups ready to answer your questions and show you how you can get involved. This will give you a chance to meet an older scout to help you navigate your experience in Cadettes and make the most of it!

The adult track will consist of hearing from our keynote speakers, as well as a “Get Ready to Relax” session which is where we talk about transitioning to leading/parenting middle schoolers while treating ourselves to some pampering and relaxation. The adult track will end with the opportunity to join your Girl Scout(s) for crafts or an outdoor activity.

At the end of the event, you’ll be invited to take home your crafts as well as some exciting goodies to fuel your Cadette experience!
