Saturday, July 20 to Saturday, July 27, 2013
While some of us are going to the Canadian Jamboree in Alberta from July 6-17, our troop will still be participating in the shared Haliburton Camp we have been a part of for some years now. I don’t expect that many of those who are going to the Jamboree will attend, but the opportunity is there and I expect that most of you who are not attending the Jamboree will want to come. It is also for Cubs who are coming to Scouts in June.
About Haliburton Scout Reserve
Centred around Lake Kennabi, Haliburton Scout Reserve offers 23 campsites which are accessible only by water. We are surrounded by a world of breathtaking scenery. The Reserve provides Scouts with the most enjoyable camping experience possible.
Experienced, fully trained camp staff offer comprehensive programs from canoeing, kayaking and swimming, to climbing walls, rappelling, archery and rifle ranges. Miles of marked trails allow you to visit uninhabited wilderness to watch hawks soaring above Pike’s Peak, or to fish Haliburton’s pristine lakes.
About our camp at HSR
We will be part of a combined troop at camp with the 1st Highland Creek and the 2nd Agincourt. The camp is open to 403rd Toronto Scouts, Venturers and Cubs who are going up to Scouts in June/September. Cubs who attend will be invested at camp.
Our campsite will be Hidden Bay. We will canoe to all our activities. Our activities will include archery, rifle shooting, sailing, kayaking, star gazing, rappelling, and much more. We will most likely do an overnight hike on our own partway through the week.
The permission form and the rifle range form must be signed and returned before we leave for camp.
There is a canteen at the central camp, but we will not be there very often so you will not need much spending money.
Do not bring phones, MP3 players, iPods, handheld games, or any other electronic gizmo. You may bring a camera.
The cost of this event last year was $375. I expect it will be the same or very close this year. If money is a problem, talk to Scouter Beth. To sign up, complete the attached form(s) and return with a $100 deposit (cheque payable to 403rd Toronto Scouts) to Keith Nunn, 435 Shuter Street, Toronto, ON, M5A 1X4.
We need parents to drive there and back for this to work and remain affordable.
We will be leaving from St. Peter’s Church on Carlton Street at 9:00 am on Sat., July 20.
The parent(s) doing the pick up on July 27 will need to be at the camp by 10:00 am.
