2015 Canoe Camp participants

2015 Fall Canoe Camp a great success!

Thank you all Cubs, canoe captain parents, Scouters, and Megan our Scouter-to-be. Our 2015 Fall Canoe Camp was a great success! A special thanks to Troy and Tim for pulling our canoe and cargo trailers.

We had a very windy start on Saturday, causing us some difficulty. After that, it was clear paddling and camping.  Our Sunday paddle was spectacular.

The Parks Canada staff at Upper Nicholsons Lockstation were excellent and went out of their way to help make our overnight stay a great experience.

We are already looking forward to another canoe camp in the spring!
