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).
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.
Adults at camp must be current on training/paperwork. If in doubt, ask your Group Commissioner.
Food, equipment, garbage, parking
Bring your own tents and sleeping gear. No kitchen equipment is necessary.
Bring your dishes and water bottles — we’ll feed and water you!
Helpers needed: People to bring home garbage/recycling, to direct traffic on Friday evening/Saturday morning, to act as registrar and to assist youth running stations as requested.
Parents dropping off and picking up youth are to park in the lot near the entrance to the camp and walk gear in/out. Youth should try to carry their own gear. Each Group may designate one emergency vehicle/gear hauler and park it in the lot just past the lodge (decide ahead of time). Please inform parents before camp about parking.
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.
Not to be confused with the Council event a couple of weeks later, which you can find out about at the Council website.
The top section awards for Beavers and Cubs for Odawa Area (North Star Award and Seeonee Award) will be handed out on Sunday morning at the year-end camp. The top awards for the older sections, Chief Scout Awards and Queen’s Venturer Awards, will be handed out on the Friday evening of camp.
Date:June 11, 2017 Time: Morning, during Scouts’ Own Where: Apple Hill Scout Reserve
Print off the junior section certificates ahead of time and bring them to Apple Hill to hand to the youth. If you wish to purchase a plaque, you can do so at the Scout Shop.
If your Beaver or Cub wants to receive his or her North Star Award or Seeonee Award at the Odawa Area June Camp on June 11, please email Susan Liddle at liddlesj at gmail.com with your group name and the youth’s name BY JUNE 7, so we have an idea of how many youth will receive an award.
Parents\family welcome. Bring chairs and bug spray.
