Dear Scout Camper,

Welcome to the March newsletter for the Vancouver Island Scout Summer Camp. In this issue we tell you more about the camp activities, introduce you to a couple of our team and show you easy ways to stay in touch as we move closer to camp.

In addition, we have just finished our online payment portal where you can view your registration, make payments and download receipts.

Join the Team

Join our Junior Staff Team

We still have a few spots left on our Junior Staff Team, for youth that are registered as Venturers with Scouts Canada. Our Offer of Service team are the key to making the camp successful, volunteering their time and experience to work with youth campers and provide the best camp experience ever!

Junior staff rotate through all areas of camp, from food preparation, to program activities, getting first-hand knowledge of how the camp operates and engaging with youth campers and our adult Scouter team. Volunteering at camp also gives you tons of volunteer hours that can be used for School and Scouting volunteer hours.

If you know of a Venturer youth that would be a good fit for Summer Camp, or have a sibling that is in an older section, please tell them about camp and have them register on the website.

In The Loop

This year, we have partnered with Date In Your Diary to enable us to send SMS messages to scout camper families. When we send updates, or need to communicate with families, we do it through SMS, email and through our Facebook page. If you haven't signed up on our DIYD group, please visit Date In Your Diary and register for FREE.
