BOTTLE DEPOT DROP-OFF - JUNE 1-30
For the month of June, Camp Barnard is BOTTLE DEPOT's designated charity. This means that refunds from all containers that are put in their charity bins will be given to Camp Barnard. This could be a huge bonus for our camp! Please consider spreading the word to parents and friends. The bottle depot locations are 4261 Glanford, 655 Queens, 3961 Quadra. The bins are marked CHARITY BIN and are available for drop-off 24/7, no sorting required.
SUMMER ADVENTURE CAMPS, AUG. 6-10 and AUG. 12-17
As last year, Ann Armstrong and her great crew will be here for 2 weeks in August to provide wonderful camping experiences for all who sign up. All of the details regarding registration are available at www.adventurecamps.ca or you can call Kay at 250 384 3494 and she will send you the registration forms.
There are some volunteer opportunities both weeks as well-if you can help in the kitchen, waterfront or could provide an evening program please email firstname.lastname@example.org
APPLE DAY 2012- SEPTEMBER 29
Mark your calendars now. Apple Day helps your group and is a critical fundraiser for our camp. Your camp fees alone cannot cover the costs of operating Camp Barnard; Apple Day is a way to participate in keeping fees as low as possible while still maintaining and developing a great camp.
Don't forget to get your fall camp dates booked early to avoid disappointment. email@example.com OR Fax 250 642-1312.
Have you thought about a Camp Good Turn that your group can tackle next year? Willy has lots of ideas!
Camp Barnard will be very busy this summer-just take a look at the Site Availability page on the Camp Barnard pages at www.victoriascouts.ca to see the number of Scouting groups and other organizations who use our great camp! Thanks to everyone who has helped out at Camp Barnard over the past year- your support at work parties and fundraisers is critical!!
Have a great summer one and all,
Camp Barnard Committee
