Our first camp of the season went pretty well in spite of challenging weather. Three Scouts and three leaders paddled canoes and gear from Cherry Beach to the Island on Friday night, fighting difficult wind the whole time. The remaining scouts and leaders took the ferry over, hiking their own equipment from the dock to Snake Island. Our site had a beautiful view back to the city.
Saturday was a great day, but had even stronger winds. All the Scouts did a great job of portaging the canoes to the sheltered side of the island and then paddling for a couple of hours in the inner channels of the Toronto Islands.
The rain on Sunday was a bit of a drag, but all the Scouts and leaders pulled together and we had a good time still. Thank you all for a great weekend!
