Camp Closed Temporarily!!!

Due to Covid-19, Scouts Canada has made the decision to temporarily close all camps, until at least May 4th. Given the severity of the situation with Covid-19, it certainly is the right decision.

Sowing Seeds

Ranger Mike Mazur and our Camp Chair, Peter Smith, have been creating a pollonation area in the NE Field. 

Last Spring they roped off an area and started planting seeds and bulbs.  They dry July didn’t help, but several plants did come up and provided some energy into the Fall.

On Work Day, we sowed seeds for the future.  Milkweed, wild roses (Rosa Rugosa), lupins and poppies (Vimy edition).

Please contact us if your youth want to help by sowing seeds, planting bulbs or building and installing bee cottages.  Perfect projects for Section Awards projects.

Post Work Day Thanks

A heartfelt thank you to 4th Orleans Company, 1st Rockland Troop and 3rd Cornwall Troop, plus all the Rangers and other Odawa Scouters who came out to work.

The big news is the rope bridge is back!  Thanks to 4th Orleans Company for tying off the verticals and then getting the bridge set up.  They got to be the first across, no feet got wet.

The base of a new double-picnic table shelter at Kitchener Field has been levelled.  Took a bulldozer to move the boulders that formed one of the many rock walls that exist throughout the camp.

We got lots done before the snow blew in.  We’ll see you on April 27th for the Spring Work Day.
