This year's District Winter Camp was one of the biggest ever. Held February 2 -4, 2001 at the Blue Springs Scout Reserve, this year we had 151 registered participants. Participants had a chance to test their winter camping skills, meet Scouts and Pathfinders from around the city, and race a sled in the infamous cross country dog (Scout) sled race (which once again saw the return of our sled M*A*F*U). They also participated in such activities as bannock making, animal tracking & snowshoeing, disaster survival, constructing snow goggles, and a first aid scenario.
This year we partnered up with the 1st Mount Albion Pathfinder Unit from Hamilton. Troop Leader Will and APL Pat joined Scouter Bill in a visit to the Pathfinders in January to go over winter camping equipment and skills. It was the Unit's first winter camping trip, and everyone did very well!
