Groups should set up on Whiskin Field between 6:30 – 9 p.m. Friday evening. Departure is after 11:30 a.m. on Sunday after Scouts Own.
This September we will offer activities especially tailored to meet the WORLD SCOUT ENVIRONMENT AWARD (WSEA) for CUBS!
Activities on Saturday include Aquatic Habitat, Land Habitat Hike, Clean Water Sources, Recycling, Climate Change, Clean Air Hike, Pollution, and Leave No Trace. For those returning to Environment Camp, there will be different activities than last year’s camp at most of these Activity Centres. We will conclude with a campfire on Saturday night.
For your own purposes, we remind you that Blue Springs Scout Reserve offers marked trails and an outdoor obstacle course and eco-friendly practices.
Youth can earn credit toward Personal Achievement Badges for Earth, Air, Water and Science through participation in these activities and also meet requirements for Environment & Outdoors, Active & Healthy Living, Citizenship and Creative Expression, Belief & Values programs and use of S.T.E.M approaches supplied by The Canadian Path.
Although Pack units may vary in what they offer to youth while at Blue Springs, youth can also earn credit toward Levels 1-4 of Camping Skills, Trail Skills, Emergency Aid and Scoutcraft in Outdoor Skills.
