Mississauga-Wellington Spring Competition Camp Apr 28-30 2017

Come to the 2nd Annual Multi-Area – Mississauga-Wellington Competition Camp, held at Blue Springs Scout Reserve.

This is a competition / program ready style camp whereby patrols are marked on their camping and pioneering skills. In each category, patrols compete for trophies and for prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishes. This event allows youth to camp on their own with minimal supervision, to be contained and self-sufficient for the weekend. Patrols will be marked on every skill and camping aspect from the Hike Start point on Friday night, to breakfast on Sunday morning. Patrols camp on their own within earshot of “Hub/Sub-camp” staff the entire weekend. Dont be shy, we regularly have attendance that range from total newbies to Scouting to advanced third year Scouts. A great weekend if you’re a 3rd year Cub and need another Scout level camp before attending CJ in July.

Cost is $15 per person. Parent drop-off time is Friday between 6 & 7pm. Pickup on Sunday morning at 11am.

PRIZES RANGING FROM STOVES TO SLEEPING BAGS MAKE YOU EFFORTS WORTHWHILE!
