Updates from the Fort George Team
The Scout and Venturer Program team is busy updating and revitalising the program. The preliminary signs are for Less Marching, More Cap-gun fighting time, Less Marching, More time in town and some new activities. We won’t be changing the activities you’ve always loved. Oh, and did we mention Less Marching?
The Cub Junior Brigade team is busy playing a full busy weekend for the youth. Most of the elements remain similar to the past, with active theme-based program, time in the town, and not much marching (we have little legs after all).
We are busy working with the catering company to provide the best available and cost-effective meals all weekend.
The Registration site is being revitalized and should be up by June 15th.
The 2016 Registration price is set at $65 CDN ($50US).
In hopes of keeping participant registration fees down, and in recognition that the weekend food contributes over half of the costs to this event, this year we have introduced a food-sharing cost for Offers of Service (OOS). For the 2016 Campaign, the Brigade will be charging $20 CDN ($15 USD) for all Brigade HQ, Regiment HQ, Site, Security and First Aid Offer of Service personnel. We believe this small fee is comparable to, or even less than, other large Scouting events, and will be accepted by our long-standing and supportive service staff.
We will keep you informed as more updates are available! If you would like us to send these updates to another member of your group, please send us their contact details and we will add them to our distribution list.
See you in September!
