Event Description

Are you a Rover Scout or Scouter who loves the outdoors and would like to pass along your passion to Scouting youth?  Camp Opemikon is looking for help supporting programs for campers during the September to June camping season.  We are looking for people to facilitate our high and low ropes program. 

A certification is required in order to facilitate high and low ropes.  A certification course for high ropes will be held at Ope on April 27 & 28, during Work Weekend.  A low ropes course will also be held in the near future.  No prior experience is necessary but you will need to be able to climb up the poles.  High ropes sessions typically run for about 2 hours, low ropes around 90 minutes, both depending on the size of the group.  There can be a number of them over a weekend.  Given the cost of the courses, we ask that volunteers commit to no less that 4 weekends in the Spring, Fall and Spring 2020.

When volunteering at Ope, all meals will be provided and accommodations will be arranged if you need/would like to stay overnight.

Anyone with questions or interested in helping with these programs should contact Theresa Strickland at opewarden@scouts.ca and Alex Gazaleh at scouteralex@gmail.com Deadline for registration for the high ropes certification is April 21.
