The Cadette Summit is a weekend just for you!

The Cadette Summit is a weekend just for you! In this action-packed weekend, over 200 Cadettes head to camp where you'll select and experience your own adventure. See below for more details, and check back regularly for updates!

Please note that this is not a “troop” event. Girls choose their own individual schedules and experiences. Girls must travel camp with a buddy, however that buddy can change throughout the day. Troops are welcome to sit with each other at meals and check-in throughout the day!
