One of Burlington Area’s most eagerly anticipated events is fast approaching. The annual Area Canoe Camp, to be held this year from June 1st to 3rd at Camp Wheeler near Haliburton, is an opportunity for Scouts to learn valuable canoe skills in a controlled environment, and from experienced instructors. One of the overall objectives of this event is to build competencies for several stages of the Paddling Outdoor Adventure Skills badge. And, of course, it’s a ton of fun!
The camp will also include an overnight out trip for Scouts working on the Advanced Tripping badge or higher Stages of the Paddling OAS, and an Island overnight for Scouts wanting to learn lightweight camping skills.
Prior to attending the camp at Wheeler, all Scouts will be required to attend a mandatory Skills session and Pizza party, to be held at a Burlington public swimming pool. This has been scheduled for April 14th from 3pm to 7pm at Aldershot Community Pool.
Cost for the event will be $100 per person, food, canoes and accommodation included. Registration deadline is April 7th at 8:00pm – first come, first served as we have limited space.
