More about Camp Everton

Camp Everton is a warm Scouting environment in which youth can grow and develop using both the skills that they bring to and learn at camp. Situated along the beautiful Eramosa River, on approximately 185 acres, Camp Everton is filled with breathtaking scenery, small limestone caves and majestic cliffs. Camp Everton is safe and clean and provides an excellent place for youth to enjoy their summer! Camp Everton is a fully equipped facility with washrooms, full kitchen, and sleeping quarters. The main lodge, affectionately termed “The Cub Barn” is a fully converted barn that provides a wonderfully rustic and unique experience for any youth.

Cub Camp

Cub Camp is open to all youth ages 8-11, including White Tail Beaver Scouts. We would also welcome youth who are 7 years of age born in 2009.
 Campers will stay in the Cub Barn, participate in theme activities and have the opportunity to sleep out in an Adirondack. Campers will rotate through program activities and have the chance to challenge themselves to complete their own quest!

ACE Camp

ACE (Advanced Cubbing Experience) Camp is open to youth ages 10-11 (third year Cub Scouts).
 This is a dynamic and unique experience that will prepare youth for the adventures that they will meet in Scouts. ACE Campers will stay in tents and have the opportunity to stay in Adirondacks as well. They will learn many outdoor camping skills such as outdoor cooking, pioneering, and survival safety.

Scout Camp

Scout Camp is open to youth ages 11 – 14.
 Campers will set up their full campsites in the Scout forest, preparing all meals at their sites. Scouts will have the opportunity to practice skills and challenge themselves as they encounter new situations at Camp.

Scouts Canada Members: $350 per week (plus HST)

Cost for Non Members: $30 per week (additional)

Everton Summer Camp dates finally here!

Hello Cubs and Scouts of Central Escarpment Council,
We have just finalised the dates for Everton Summer Camp this year. For those cubs and scouts that have attended in the past, you will know this is a great camp, and those who haven’t gone in the past will want to consider going this year. Everton is located just NorthEast of Guelph and was the site of the CCJ camp for those cubs who went last summer.  Below is some information about each camp. 
 
-Cub camp will be July 9-14
This camp takes place with sleeping and meal accommodations in the cub barn. Activities include archery, swimming, crafts, and jungle time (you will very likely catch crayfish in the river so bring an old pair of shoes). It is a great camp with a lot of campfires and fun. The program is really excellent.
 
-ACE/Scout camp will be July 16-21
This camp is intended for cubs moving up to scouts (Advanced Camping Experience) and Scouts as well. This also happens out at Everton but camping and eating will take place in the woods on campsites in tents. There is still access to Archery and swimming, so this is also part of the program, and of course campfires and other activities.
As soon as there is any more information about the theme, cost and registration process is available it will be sent out.
