Girls like to make new friends at camp. But we also know that some
girls want to be with a particular friend, so we will try to
accommodate a request to be placed with a buddy in the same unit. If
we are able to accommodate your request, we will still encourage her
to make new friends within her unit. At times, we will pair her up
with someone new during games, buddy lines, and other activities at
camp. Girls wishing to be buddies must be in the same program and
cannot be more than one grade apart. Only one buddy can be requested
and it must be reciprocal on the buddy’s registration.
At Lake Rickabear Day Camp, the preference is for girls to be part
of the same Girl Scout level (Daisy, Brownie, Junior, etc.). If the
girls are not part of the same Girl Scout level, the older girl will
be moved down one level to be with her younger buddy.
