Kayak for a Cause on Walloon Lake 2013
Twenty-three kayakers participated in the 5th Annual Kayak for a Cause on Walloon Lake event on July 20th and 21st, 2013 raising much needed scholarship dollars for students to participate in programs at the Camp Daggett Adventure Center (CDAC). The annual event continues to grow each year since Karen Marietti, Director of CDAC, made the two day paddle solo five years ago.
This event was supported by donations in support of kayakers, 16 sponsors, a raffle of a kayak donated by The Outfitter of Harbor Springs, the sale of over 100 dock flags, most to Walloon Lake residents who displayed the Kayak for a Cause on Walloon Lake dock flags, and general donations for the event. Over $20,000 was raised this year! To make this even more special the Doll-Loesel Foundation offered to provide a match of up to $20,000 for Kayak for a Cause on Walloon Lake!
Thank you to our Sponsors!

Camp Daggett Outdoor Adventure
Participants can challenge themselves on a three-sided, 40-foot climbing tower with six attached high ropes-course elements designed and built by Project Adventure in a beautiful wooded setting at Camp Daggett. A group problem solving initiative course, tucked in the woods near the nature pond, contains more than ten different elements and provides opportunities for leadership, cooperation and accomplishment.
Adventure Programs for Students
A challenge course program at the Camp Daggett Adventure Center promotes feelings of acceptance, self-worth and a sense of community not often experienced in our every day living. It is hoped that participants will be more willing to accept the opinions and ideas of others as well as sharing their own, better appreciate that all people have value and be more willing to participate in peaceful solutions to problem solving.
