WINTER CUB CAMP, March 8-10, 2002

at Otter Lake Camp, Otter Lake, Quebec

Accommodations: Otter Lake Camp has a heated cabin with sleeping accommodations (bunks) indoors for the Cubs.  All Cubs will need a sleeping bag, sleeping pad and backpack.

Meals: We will be self catering - mug-up on Friday, breakfast, lunch, supper and mug-up on Saturday, breakfast and lunch on Sunday.  Please advise us of any food allergies in advance, so we can plan the menu.

Program: The program will be built around the requirements of the twin themes of "The Natural World" and "Home and Community" which are the themes of this year's Cub program (the Blue and Black Stars).  Winter Camping will be introduced to new Cubs, including safety and proper dress in the cold.  We will explore the natural world, go stargazing, have a campfire (weather permitting), do a craft, songs, and stories.  Camp activities will contribute to the requirements of the Blue and Black Stars. For Cubs who do not have their Winter Cubbing badge, this camp will qualify them for that.

Departure Time: 

    Cubs should have had their supper first.  The drive to Otter Lake is  approximately 1 hour 30 minutes.  We will need parents as volunteers to drive.

Return Time:  

    (Depart Otter Lake 2:00 pm)     Drivers needed!

Cost:    $25 (includes all meals, Saturday campfire, and campfire blanket badge).
