Camping

Camping offers girls an opportunity to develop leadership skills while learning an appreciation for the outdoors, and a respect for our environment. The Camping Department is available to provide help and resources to any Guider planning a camp or outdoor activity. They are also responsible for circulating information about inter-provincial camping opportunities for girl and adult members as well as planning and province-wide camps that may be offered. The Camping Department may also work with the Training Department in presenting camp trainings which will improve the volunteer experience and enhance the Guiding program.


ConBaSu Hut


Spend some time at the ConBaSu Area Campsite. Join your Guiding sisters around a fire, roasting marshmallow and singing songs. There is a lot of fun to be had!!

ConBa
