Ottawa 1999


Okay, I admit it, we got the idea from our Venturers.  When they planned a trip to Ottawa for white-water rafting and to take in Canada Day in Canada's Capital, it caught the imaginations of the Scouts and their Leaders.  While the Venturers wound up rescheduling their trip to August, interest built up in the Troop for a 5-day, year-ending Ottawa adventure.

From Wednesday, June 30th to Sunday, July 4th, with financial contributions from the parents, the group, and our bottle drive proceeds, the 15th Burlington Scouts traveled to the Nation's Capital and beyond for a whirlwind tour, and a river run on the mighty Ottawa.  9 Scouts, 2 Guests, and 4 adults came on the trip, making it our biggest trip of the year.  In Ottawa, we stayed right in the heart of the action at the LaBreton Campground.  The grounds were within walking distance of the Canada Day action.  Included in the trip was a visit to the Parliament Buildings for the Canada Day celebrations, a guided tour of the National Scout Office and Museum, and a day of river rafting on the Ottawa River with Wilderness Tours. Other activities included a visit to the Canadian Museum of Civilization, the Canadian War Museum, The Royal Canadian Mint, and the local Canadian Tire (don't ask...).  The trip ended with a tour of the Hershey Factory in Smiths Falls.....MMMMM, chocolate.....
