Cadette Camp-In

December 3-4, 1998

8:30 AM the 3rd – 12:00 noon the 4th

Interest Patches

These are suggested Interest Patches I feel we might be able to offer on such short notice:

Conflict Resolution Exploring the Net

Paper Works Games for Life

Math, Maps and More

I am working on trying to have one of the school’s computer rooms available to us but I don’t know if we will be able to arrange that or not. There are certainly other Interest Patches that could be offered or someone could lead a session to earn the Cadette Challenge. It depends on what the adults (leaders, mom, or other women from the community) are willing to do. We can only offer as many Interest Patches as we have adults to plan and lead a group of girls. Please volunteer to run an Interest Patch Group (IP group). I can guide any adult who is willing to lead an interest patch group, but I will be teaching Program Aide training and so will not be available to help with any IP sessions during the event.

Once I decide on which PA training sessions and IPs to offer, I will let you know so that each girl can choose which one she would like to do. The whole troop does not have to do the same thing.

Tentative Schedule:
