5th Annual Fall Camp Service Day!

Saturday 20th October 2018

Location: 19 Chemin Scout, Otter Lake QC J0X 2P0

The 5th Annual Fall Camp Service Day/ Appreciation Week-end is being held October 19th – 21st, 2018.

This weekend provides a great opportunity for Scouting groups and sections to spend a relatively relaxed weekend meeting other groups and youth, and to contribute to one of Voyageur Council’s jewels – Camp Otter Lake QC. We encourage the entire Scouting Section, Group, or family* to come out and enjoy the camp, whether its just for the day or the weekend. Please check the camp’s website for details on what activities we will be doing (

The event will start on Friday night with a mug-up and snacks around the campfire. Saturday, groups are responsible for their own breakfast, but the camp will be providing snacks, drinks, as well as a lunch, e.g. something like hot dog & soup. The work day will be from 0930 to 1530. And after the work day is over there will be an appreciation dinner, early evening. There is a small registration fee of $5/person to assist with the food.

*Please note that parents and family are welcome to join us, provided the necessary paperwork is completed and held with the Group/Section.

Accommodations:  Please note that there is NO charge for camping this weekend. If staying over Groups and Individuals are responsible for providing their own accommodations and being self-contained.
