ODAWA AREA “SUB-ZERO” WINTER CAMP

Apple Hill Scout Reserve

January 25-26, 2020

This camp focuses on Odawa Troops practicing basic winter camping skills and
participating in the Odawa “Sub Zero Club”, if we are lucky enough to get conditions that allow us to meet the requirements.

For those Troops and Members that have never attended this camp, or need a
refresher, here is a bit of a description of the area. The camp is in a wooded area with several large clearings which should give an adequate amount of snow for building quinzhees. Troops are also required to carry or sled in all their gear from the parking lot to their camping area.

Odawa White-Tail and Howler Camp at Apple Hill Scout Reserve

May 8 to 10, 2020 (Friday night optional)

Calling all White-Tail Beavers and Howler Cubs! 

Come for a taste of youth-led activities you can enjoy in Cubs or Scouts next fall. 

Separate activities for Beavers and Cubs are planned and run by Scouts (supported by Scouters).

Ratio

At the camp, you only need to BRING 1 Scouter per 8 youth. Yes, ONE Scouter can bring up to 8 youth without needing a second Scouter BECAUSE at the White Tail / Howler camp, we all camp together. We thus provide two deep to each other.
