Tall Ship Composite Camp – Jul 25 thru Aug 1 (8 days)

June 29, 2009 at 8:59 am 2 comments

To all CEC Scouts and Venturers between the ages of 13 & 18. CEC sets sail with Toronto Brigantine, a unique opportunity for Venturers & 3rd year Scouts to participate in an amazing Tall Ship Adventure – aboard a real Brigantine tall ship this summer.  You will be cruising between Tobermory and Midland in beautiful Georgian Bay (bussing from Mississauga or Toronto).

The program will be offered in a composite camp format with the Brigantine being operated exclusively for the Scouts.  Two Scouts Canada leaders will coordinate the program and accompany the composite group.  There are only 16 berths available on a first come first served basis.

CEC & Toronto Brigantine have developed a program that allows the youth to earn challenge badges relative to their section while on board, in addition to the regular activities provided as part of the sailing program.

Although it is late in the Scouting season, we are encouraging all leaders to notify their eligible Venturers and 3rd Year Scouts of this unusual ‘camp’ opportunity.  It represents excellent value and will provide youth with a great summer experience.  If you are interested in participating as a leader (no cost) please contact the organizers.

Requirements include the ability to tread water for 10 minutes and swim 100 metres.  Sailing experience is not necessary.  Deadline for registrations is Fri Jul 3rd.  Cost $620 including all meals and transportation to and from the ship (a $260 savings over the regular $880 cost).

For more information, contact the following Scouters:

– Paul Dennis, 416-268-1017 paulcdennis@gmail.com

– Dave Collins, 905-916-1282 hawkeye1ho@yahoo.ca
