Canoe Camp 2015

Canoe Camp

April 11th, 2015 – Aldershot Community Pool
May 29th – 31st, 2015 – Camp Wheeler

One of the Area’s most eagerly anticipated events is fast approaching. The annual Area Canoe Camp, to be held this year from May 29th – 31st 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 cover off the requirements for the Paddling Challenge badge, as detailed in your Scout Book. 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, 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 11th from 2:00pm to 7:00pm at Aldershot Community Pool.


Cost for the event will be $90 per person, food, canoes and accommodation included.  Registration deadline is April 3rd at 8:00pm.
