New Brunswick Scout Camp to Feature War of 1812 Theme

Fredericton, NB – July 11 – The 2012 New Brunswick Scout Camp, which will be held at the Yoho Scout Reserve near Fredericton between July 22 and 28, will feature a theme based on the bicentennial of the War of 1812 between Great Britain and the United States.

Campers will be assigned to represent either the British or the Americans during the camp and will be expected to learn their national anthems and care for their national flags. Games and activities will be based on conflict between the two sides in the war and campers will learn about the history of the war, how the war affected the Atlantic Region and also the war’s impact on the culture of the First Nations. The camp will be visited by theatre and military groups reenacting aspects of the War of 1812.

The camp is open to guys and girls ages 11 to 15 who are registered members of Scouts Canada, as well as non-members who are willing to pay a special Scout registration fee to enable them to participate in the camp.

Scouts will camp in tents, prepare their own meals, have an active program of games, campfires, Scoutcraft skills, canoeing, swimming and other water activities. Camp fee is $300 + HST for the week and non-Scouts will also pay a fee of $37.50 for mandatory insurance coverage for the duration of the camp.

Other Scouts or Venturer Scouts, ages 13 to 17, might also be interested in the NB Council Sailing Camp, between August 12 – 18 at the Yoho Scout Reserve and also on Lake Mactaquac. Younger boys and girls, ages 8 to 11, could attend the NB Council Cub Camp between August 19 – 25 at the Yoho Scout Reserve.
