Camp Opemikon Work Weekend
04/28/2017 - 4:00pm - 04/30/2017 - 1:00pm
The 17th Annual CAMP OPEMIKON WORK WEEKEND will be held on the weekend of April 28th – 30th, 2017.
This weekend provides a great opportunity for Voyageur Council Scouting groups to meet other Scouting groups, to spend a fun weekend at camp and to make an important contribution to preparing YOUR camp for another summer season. Accommodations and meals (from Friday mugup to Sunday lunch inclusive) are provided by the camp for a nominal fee of $12 per participant.
The format for the weekend is as follows:
Friday April 28th – groups arrive, settle into their assigned accommodations, then join their fellow Scouters for mugup at 9:30pm in the Dining Hall.
Saturday April 29th – work day. Tasks as assigned by the organizers. The workday will end at suppertime.
Sunday April 30th - day off. Groups may make use of the camp facilities as they see fit. Lunch will be available.
This event is for Rover Scout Crews, Venturer Scout Companies, senior (i.e. third year) Scouts and adult leaders. Troop Scouters and Company Advisors are encouraged to take advantage of this great opportunity for linking activities between their senior Scouts and Venturers. Individual adult leaders are also welcome to attend. Please note – this is a Scouting event, not a family camp, so participation is limited to currently registered members of Scouts Canada. Registration for the event will be limited and will be on a “first come, first served” basis.
Groups may register by contacting Tim Taylor by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone (819-561-1613) and must provide the following information by early April:
- Name of group
- Group contact (name/telephone number/email address)
