Dinosaur Provincial Park Camp

There was an exciting time exploring and fossil hunting in the badlands at Dinosaur Provincial Park.  On the Fossil Safari we all got to see many fossilized bones, trees and even part of a snake skeleton (non-fossil).  I think we were all impressed with the variety and abundance of fossil's in the park. 

It was also very helpful that the weather remained excellent all weekend.  Definitely and Interesting place!

Summer Camp Successes

We had a a great time at summer camp over the last week and everyone had a lot of fun.  we completed a couple pioneering projects and learned a lot about lashings and whatnot.  We also had the Canoe-olympics with events like canoe slalom and rescue time trials.  A couple boys caught some leaches out of the lake and frogs from the forest.

Lost Lake Renovations

Now that the Scout Hall Renovation is nearing completion, it is time to give our Camp a new look as well.

We have been successful in obtaining an Alberta CIP grant to help us Renovate the Lost Lake Camp.
This Grant requires that some of the funds be matched by the volunteer labour that all of the Groups that use the camp will contribute, and some are matched by the insurance money, a donation by the Forest Lawn Lions Club, a donation of Roofing tiles by Dyck Insurance, and a donation of part of the cost of logs by Rouck Brothers Sawmill.  Thanks to everyone in advance!.
