Join us at Apple Hill Scout Reserve (near Maxville, about an hour from east Ottawa) for a weekend camp that prepares White Tail Beavers for Cub Scouts, and Howlers for Scouts.
Calling Odawa youth and Scouters!
a Scout, Venturer or Rover who’d
like to come and play for the weekend and show some youth leadership, let us
know. We’re recruiting the camp committee now. It’s a great way to earn volunteer hours. Planning and running a
camp looks great on your resume, too.
If you’rea Howler Cub Scout or White Tail BeaverScout, ask your Scouters to plan to come to this camp so you can preparefor advancement to your next section.
Scouters, worried about ratio? Never fear! You can bring a group of youth even if you have only one Scouter. We’ll be camping close to one another, and the other Scouters at camp will be able to help ensure that the two-deep rule is followed.
Our annual BP Skills and Medic Alert Camp will be held:
When: Oct. 12-14, 2018
Where: Camp Opemikon
See registration package for more details! The schedule will be posted at a later date.
Also, this is a call for volunteers – Scouters, Sr. Scouts, Venturers, and Rovers, who would like to help us run this camp and make it the success it is each year. Please see the Activity sign up sheet and send your info back to Scouter David Kerrivan – Odawa DAC Program and Scouter Charlene Martens (Area Commissioner) (ma-bpskills[at]odawa-scouting.ca)
Grace Breuer has been volunteering for years at school and with Scouts Canada, including helping younger youth, planning a camp to promote leadership, and helping with fundraising at school.
Grace joined Scouting to follow her big brother — and stayed for the fun and friendships. Little did she know that the things she was doing for fun would lead to an award. On December 1, 2017, MPP for Ottawa-Orléans Marie-France Lalonde recognized Grace’s hard work over the years and presented her with the Orléans150 Award at École secondaire catholique Béatrice-Desloges.
Grace relishes her camping adventures: among her favourites were the team-building camp she planned with fellow Scouts and a high-adventure canoe trip to the rock slides in Algonquin Park. Recently, she and a few other Scouts planned every aspect of a camp for Cub Scouts (who are aged 8 to 10) graduating to Scouts (which is for ages 11 to 14). Planning included meals, campsite setup, safety precautions, activities and schedule.
Grace has been in Scouting for 8 years and as a member of 8th Orleans Scout Troop, she helps out with the 8th Orleans Beavers (kids aged 5 to 7). She has planned and led meeting nights, and helped Beavers make friends and enjoy the outdoors. The younger members look to her as a role model, leader and mentor.
Even with the many hours of volunteering, Grace maintains that the fun and opportunities she gets in Scouting far outweigh the effort she puts in.
