Getting Ready for Camp
This section is for the youth, parents and scouters attending camp.
What to expect at camp?
ADVENTURE!!! FRIENDSHIP!!! TEAMWORK!!!
Wilderness Rendezvous Scout Camp supplies an experience found no where else in Canada or the World!
Upon arrival at camp, each Scouting Group establishes a sub-camp where the youth will eat and sleep while at camp. The next day, Scouts are split into their program groups (i.e. Pioneers, 1st Year, etc) where they will meet their Program Directors and Scouters. Using the scout patrol method, youth are split into patrols with Scouts from other Scout groups. They will work in the patrols over the week learning new skills and hiking together.
Over the next 7 days, the youth will take part in their programs. On Day 8, all youth are back in camp for the annual WR Games Day and a family BBQ (which parents can attend). On Day 9, base camp is packed up and the youth head home.
Youth cannot attend camp alone. Youth must attend as part of a Troop with their Scouters. If you are interested in attending, speak with your Troop Scouter.
Food is supplied for everyone at camp, so please do not send food with your youth. While in base camp, youth are expected to help cook their group’s meals and while out on trail will cook their own food.
Each year the camp’s menu is updated under the guidance of a nutritionist. If your youth has any food allergies or other food concerns, please ensure it is noted on your application form and your Scouter is aware of it. A camp staff member will contact you prior to camp to discuss food allergies or other food concerns.
