Burlington Area Canoe Camp


One of Burlington Area’s most eagerly anticipated events is fast approaching. The annual Area Canoe Camp – presented by 6th Dundas – to be held in 2020 from June 5th to 7th at Camp Wheeler near Haliburton, is an opportunity for Scouts to learn valuable canoe skills in a controlled environment, and from experienced instructors. One of the overall objectives of this event is to build competencies for several stages of the Paddling Outdoor Adventure Skills badge. And, of course, it’s a ton of fun!

The camp will also include an overnight out trip for Scouts working on higher Stages of the Paddling OAS, and an Island overnight for Scouts wanting to learn lightweight camping skills.

Prior to attending the camp at Wheeler, all Scouts will be required to attend a mandatory Skills session and Pizza party, to be held at a Burlington public swimming pool. This will be scheduled in April (date to be confirmed) at Aldershot Community Pool.

The event is intended for Scout-section youth, but is also open to Howler-level Cubs attending with a Troop.
