INTRODUCTION

White Pine Council is hosting a CJ’17 Pre-Camp at Brookwood Scout Reserve, 8th Line S Dummer, Norwood ON., for members of Scouts Canada who are registered to attend CJ’17.

http://www.kwascouting.ca/site/?file=camps/brookwood-camp

Arrive no earlier than 6:00 pm on Friday May 5 2017; with planned departure by 12:00 pm Sunday May 7.

Participation in the Pre-Camp is highly recommended.  We will be showing/instructing many aspects of the difference in long term camping at a Canadian Jamboree (CJ).  This will ensure both youth and Scouters get the most out of the CJ experience.

This camp is open to all youth and Scouters who have registered to attend CJ’17. We will try to run this camp as close to the way the CJ’17 will be run.

Participants will be in your CJ’17 Patrols (maximum of 8 youth, 3 leaders) and you will be assigned camp sites.  The camp sites will be the same size as you will find at CJ’17. Each patrol should come self-contained, which means you must bring your own food and cooking equipment – no food or equipment will be provided by the pre-camp organizers.

Patrols must plan to arrive together- which means all youth, Scouters, personal and patrol gear, arriving at the same time.

At check-in each registered Patrol must provide, in a sealed envelope clearly marked with the CJ’17 Patrol Number on the outside, the fitness form for each member, and a copy of your CJ’17 Registration Form.

 

Patrols must use the same equipment that you plan to use at the Jamboree – lightweight equipment and tents. All equipment has to be carried in from the registration area, (approx 1km). This is your trial run for putting up equipment in wind, rain and for sun protection. 

No vehicles are allowed past the registrations area. No exceptions. This is consistent with the process on your arrival at Camp Nedooae, Elderbank, Nova Scotia.
