History of the Lakamaga Conference
For more than 40 years, volunteers have been attending the Lakamaga Adult Education Conference to learn Girl Scouting skills while making new friends in a camp environment.
The traditional conference setting includes a variety of sessions related to leader training, activities with girls, outdoor skills and much more. Additionally, participants can attend the Outdoor Immersion experience which focuses on outdoor skills as participants set up and live in a troop camp experience throughout the weekend. Attend sessions such as fire building, ultra–light backpacking and spend the evening singing camp songs around the camp fire. Plan to attend with a friend, co-leader or on your own and join over 250 volunteers for this exciting conference.
