VIRTUAL CAMPAIGN 2020
As we are all aware, a plague is upon us and the King George III has made a proclamation to keep all of the soldiers safe.
COVID-19 is having a huge impact on our ability to move about and meet with friends. At this time, the USA-Canada border remains closed, there are restrictions on large gatherings, and many non-essential businesses have suspended operations. There is currently no firm date for a return to normal in Ontario.
While we had hoped to run our camp in-person as usual, the uncertainty we are all facing means we will be switching to a virtual format, with a full weekend of online SBFG programs. Join us for battle drills, uniform tutorials, behind-the-scenes info on what it takes to run the camp, and much more!
We are reaching out to past participants and groups to invite you to join this year’s Scout Brigade of Fort George fall campaign which is going virtual! We will be offering a virtual program on the camp weekend and hope you will join us.
Virtual Camp Program Highlights
Join us for historical and Scoutcraft themed program activities for Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, and Venturers! We are working on our program for 2020 but we want to share some highlights with you:
- Sessions on equipment making (shakos, tunics, and haversacks)
- History of the War of 1812 and Fort George
- Cooking in 1812
- Marching, formations, battle tactics and of course firing a musket
- Shared sessions including opening, closing, and campfire
Perhaps your group has not attended in a few years and would like to try out the camp again.
Registration for this year’s camp will cost $5 per person, which includes a camp crest sent by mail to the group, access to our online programming on the weekend of September 18th – 20th, and a discount on your registration for the 2021 fall campaign. You can register your pack, troop, or company at joinsbfg.scouter.ca – registration closes July 31st.
Check back here for more details as they are published.
