The 11th Annual Kayak for a Cause on Walloon Lake is scheduled for

Saturday, July 20, 2019

This year a small representative group of adults  who enjoy the sport of recreational kayaking will tour the shoreline around Walloon Lake led by Karen Marietti, director of the Camp Daggett Adventure Center (CDAC).  The proceeds from this event will support CDAC programming for youth.  Thank you to all who have already supported one of our kayakers, purchased dock flags or made a donation.  Due to the many other events and obligations that have arisen for many of our regular participants, we are changing the format this year and it will be a one day event.  To do this in one day, our paddlers will be riding on a Camp Daggett pontoon boat for some stretches of the lake and paddling others, particularly in those areas where many of the folks purchased dock flags.  If you are on Walloon Lake and you and your family want to paddle along with them for a stretch, you may join them on the lake.


The Kayak for a Cause on Walloon Lake kayakers will take off from Camp Daggett at 8:45 a.m.  They will be paddling or riding into the North Arm of Walloon Lake and down the North side of the West Arm.

Once at the narrows, (around 10:45 a.m.) the kayaks will be loaded on to the pontoon boat and they will ride down the body of the lake, refueling as they go.

At Noon the kayakers will get back in to their kayaks and paddle to the Roudi’s home in the South Arm where they stop to have lunch.

1:00 p.m. the kayakers will again ride or paddle, proceeding to the Village of Walloon and then up toward the North Arm.

The afternoon will be spent touring around the North Arm, stopping at 4:30 p.m. for dinner at the McMurray’s on Indian Garden Road.

At 7:30 p.m. the kayakers will get back on the pontoon boat and finish their tour of the lake, paddling some and riding some, as they head back to Camp Daggett.


The Kayak event will be begin at 8:45 a.m. at Camp Daggett on Saturday, ending that day at around 8:30 p.m.  The times are approximate due to weather conditions that may impact the rate of progress around the lake.

Again in 2019, you will be able to purchase a dock flag, make a donation or support a kayaker.
