Just a reminder that as with almost any of Scouts Canada's Camp properties we are located in the wilderness and there is an abundance of wildlife. At the camp it is possible you may either see an animal, a track, or other indication of them. Heck you may even hear them... there is nothing like listening to the Hoot or screech of an Owl early in the evening or morning. At Scout Camp Otter Lake QC, as indicated there is an abundance of animals. If the opportunity presents itself do not hesitate to take a picture - But remember to stay back and just observe. If the animal comes toward you, carefully move backwards or away. On the property there is a small herd of Deer - if your lucky you may see them in the field at some time. In addition to the other routine animals (raccoons, skunks, squirrels, etc,) , there is a variety of birds including Hawks, and even a Bald Eagle. Recently there has also been some Black Bears in the general vicinity - they appear to be roaming around looking for food - so even though no bears have actually been seen at the camp, please be a smart campers and make sure all of your food and garbage is properly stored. Also. PLEASE do not bring any enticements for the animals, e.g. salt blocks, apples, etc.  Thank you!
