The Let’s Camp S’more program objective is to introduce and teach basic camping skills to new guides and their guiders, to help to motivate them to want to camp in tents, and to increase their interest to camp more often while having fun in a camping environment. Basic camping skills include activities such as outdoor cooking, fire building, tent care, shelter and tarp erecting, trail marking, dish washing, basic compass, bedroll and gear packing, outdoor dressing, kit list developing, and running traditional Guiding celebrations like Camp Fire and Guides Own.
Camp Dates: October 12-14 2018
Patrol Cost: $150
Location: Camp MacLanlin (Huts and Platform tents sites) 5315 Willet Rd, Abbotsford BC
Recommended for: Guide age girls new to camp skills (great for 1st year Guides!)
Suggestion: Guiders running a Guide group in the fall can look into their unit rosters for the upcoming Guiding year (2018/2019). Contact new Guide girl families to introduce yourself and let them know of this camp opportunity. Maybe even host a meet-up of your new unit girls and Guiders registered so far and get started on some planning for the fall. Brownie Guiders that will be moving to Guides in the fall, this camp is a great opportunity for you and your new Guides to be introduced to tent camping skills.
Patrols of 5 girls and 1 Guider will learn basic camp skills- this camp is designed for 1st year Guides new to tent camping.
**We are accepting ONE Patrol from each unit – (To try and accommodate as many units in our Area. Each patrol can bring back their new skills to teach the rest of their unit)
***Other Patrols from the unit will be put on the wait-list – if spots are available come September 14th 2018, wait-listed patrols will be contacted.
